This is proven once again on their brand new single “The Dead Queen’s Race”. Together with Red Eye Temple lead vocalist Maria Nesh performing as guest singer on the track, DRAGONY deliver a powerful and energetic follow up to their epic release and provide this concept another exciting angle.

DRAGONY about “The Dead Queen’s Race”:           

“DRAGONY bids farewell to their latest album, ‘Viribus Unitis’, released in 2021, with the new, previously unreleased single ‘The Dead Queen’s Race’! The brand new up-tempo track adds another chapter to the alternative history saga established in the concept of the ‘Viribus Unitis’ album, and puts empress Elisabeth, the undead Empress of the Damned, and the character of white mage Harry Houdini, in center focus. The part of Elisabeth is performed by Red Eye Temple lead vocalist Maria Nesh as guest singer, who contributes a colorful vocal mix of clean and extreme vocals to add another layer to the DRAGONY sound. Join us one more time on our journey back to our fictionalized version of fin-de-siècle Vienna and partake in ‘The Dead Queen’s Race’!”

Breaking the Austrian album charts with their epic full-length ‘Viribus Unitis’ in 2021, DRAGONY made a statement without a shadow of a doubt. The twelve-track offering is centered around Austrian history but told in an astonishing way never heard before, as the six-piece unveils what “really happened” at the time of the last Habsburg ruler of Austria, emperor Franz Joseph, his wife, empress Sisi, and their son, the troubled Archduke Rudolf.

On the album, DRAGONY are supported by well-known colleagues like Tommy Johansson (SABATON, MAJESTICA, SYMPHONY OF TRAGEDY), Tomas Svedin (SYMPHONY OF TRAGEDY), Michele Guaitoli (VISIONS OF ATLANTIS) and Georg Neuhauser (SERENITY) – just to name a few. Mixing and mastering on ‘Viribus Unitis’ was handled by Sebastian “Seeb” Levermann of ORDEN OGAN in his Greenman Studios in Germany.

Founded in 2007 and after releasing three studio records, DRAGONY return to their rock opera roots on this latest output!

Siegfried Samer on ‘Viribus Unitis’:   

“‘Viribus Unitis’ marks both a return to our musical roots as well as a next step into the future for DRAGONY, as we are returning to a ‘rock opera concept’ album similar to our debut Legends, but at the same time, we have evolved musically and are delivering what we consider our heaviest and most diverse album to date.

“And even though we are taking a bit of a creative approach with the source material, the concept story of the album is deeply intertwined with the history of Austria and in particular with the end of the Habsburg monarchy, which is often romanticized in Austria and ingrained in our collective consciousness. We are therefore thrilled to be able to release this very special album on an Austrian label, Napalm Records, and hope that both old and new fans of DRAGONY will enjoy the brand new songs!”
