Bio:

Archon Angel is a new band project born from a meeting between producer/guitar player Aldo Lonobile (Secret Sphere) and former Savatage and Circle II Circle vocalist Zak Stevens during the making of Timo Tolkki's Avalon's "Return To Eden" album, of which Aldo produced and played guitar and Zak did some guest lead vocals. The two soon started talking to Frontiers about the concept of working on new music together, which was met with great enthusiasm from the label. Aldo submitted to Zak some song ideas which were reminiscent of the classic Savatage sound of records such as "Edge Of Thorns" and "Gutter Ballet". The two felt the magic was there, so no time was wasted in getting together to craft an absolutely striking metal album.Ever since Savatage released their last album "Poets & Madmen", fans have been wondering what has been going on with the band. Many releases have come from the band's members. Chris Caffery, Zak Stevens and of course the Trans Siberian Orchestra releases have been out there. However none of them were making records that sounded like Savatage ... until now! With songwriting and production courtesy of Aldo Lonobile, Archon Angel sees Zak Stevens return to the classic Savatage sound with a particularly strong and inspired release which is going to bring the listeners back to classic albums such as "Gutter Ballet", "Handful Of Rain" and "Dead Winter Dead".Aldo and Zak were also joined in the songwriting department by some of the most outstanding writers and musicians from the Italian rock scene, including Simone Mularoni (of DGM and Sweet Oblivion) and Alessandro Del Vecchio (Aldo's bandmate in Edge Of Forever and of course Jorn, Hardline, etc.).The album itself deals with a central character, the Archon, who is a modern day angel figure. The idea goes back to the religious system of Gnosticism. The only difference is that we are immersing the Archon's story into modern day times. The Archon is a medium who brings messages to God (Demiurge) from the people of Earth. The only real concept to the album is that they simply follow the story and life and times of the modern day Archon and his life as he is called upon to protect the people of earth through frightening, turbulent times.Archon Angel is currently working on booking some live shows in support of the album. If Savatage is a favourite of yours, then Archon Angel's "Fallen" may well be your album of the year!

Album:

Archon Angel was formed by producer/guitarist Aldo Lonobile (Secret Sphere) and former Savatage, Circle II Circle and current Trans-Siberian Orchestra lead vocalist Zak Stevens while both were working on the Timo Tolkki’s Avalon album ‘Return To Eden’.After Lonobile submitted some song ideas reminiscent of the classic Savatage sound, the two felt the magic was there and wasted no time in crafting a striking metal album that also features songwriting contributions from Italian rock royalty Simone Mularoni (DGM, Sweet Oblivion) and Alessandro Del Vecchio (Lonobile’s bandmate in Edge Of Forever among many other activities).The album itself deals with a central character, the ‘Archon’, who is a modern day angel, although the concept dates back to the religious system of Gnosticism with the Archon acting as a medium who brings messages to God (or Demiurge) from the people of Earth. The listener is invited to follow the story and life of the Archon as he is called upon to protect the earth’s inhabitants through frightening and turbulent times.Of the first single and album title track, ‘Fallen’, Stevens says, “the song accompanies the Archon on his journey in transitioning from a successful businessman, who leads a life of excess and egoism, to a superhero who will clean up the city and eventually save the world from self destruction.In the song, he is reminiscing about his past and the family he left behind, while summoning the power that called him to save the world to hear him.As for the song’s video, he adds, “After an arduous search for the perfect city and videographer, we settled on Pittsburgh for my scenes. The band was filmed in Genova, Italy, near the famous Porto Antico.In Pittsburgh, we shot atop Mt. Washington, overlooking downtown, much like the Archon would be doing as he pondered his future.The weather didn’t co-operate on the first day as it was raining, but one of the coolest moments occurred while filming. One of the locations was right across from Heinz Field during a Pittsburgh Steelers [football] game. At the apex of the song, the crowd erupted in cheering at the perfect time, and people who were watching us film were caught by surprise.It really contributed to my overall mindset during that portion of the song. It felt like they were cheering for the Archon and it mimicked a true live performance. I can’t wait to get out there and perform this song live with Archon Angel.
