Sarayasign - Throne of Gold


Recommended Posts

Just thought I'd post and share this as I thought some might be interested.  New band out of Sweden that seems to have a Nestor-ish type vibe with their music and back story IMO.  

Here's their first single from the debut album Throne of Gold due out in May 2022.  Not sure it's blowing me away but not sounding too bad either.  I think I'd at least be interested in hearing more.  I felt like reading their bio that things could get a bit progressive if they're planning to do some kind of cinematic thing but who knows.  Not really getting that here.....just a Euro melodic round tune in the vein of Nestor, Arctic Rain maybe mixed with like Queensryche or something....

Here's a bit of their concept and back story from their social media:

Like our stories from the land of SARAYA, that take place in different times but are still connected.
Our own story (the band) began over 25 years ago…

For three decades we have been a hidden gem, a diamond in the rough waiting patiently in the shadows, planning, preparing and like Pandoras Box, almost lost and forgotten, waiting in silence to be revealed.

Transcending time and space, fate brought us back together and here we are, over three decades later, ready to take on the world, and let you inside our.

Like a lost treasure in the Swedish melodic hard rock scene, with some of the most outstanding musical visionaries and craftsmen the scene has to offer comes a beautifully crafted trajectory that reaches beyond traditional melodic hardrock. Introducing cinematic soundscapes and with the mesmerizing stories that take place in the land of SARAYA, SARAYASIGN brings something new and fresh to the table.

With stellar guitar riffs and haunting melodies and arrangements from our childhood dreams merged with our own twist of cinematic hardrock, we offer something old and something new.
Listeners will be in for a treat.

In a cinematic experience, music can propel narrative swiftly forward or slow it down. It often lifts mere dialogue into the realm of pure poetry. It’s the communicating link between the screen and the audience, reaching out and enveloping all into one single experience. That’s what we try to do through our storytelling concept and our music.

Like the exampled album “Operation: Mindcrime”, our songs are stories, and they are all drawn from the fictional world of SARAYA.
Through the eyes and words of the storyteller comes a compelling story that started out as a fantasy for creator Jesper Lindbergh almost 25 years and later due to various reasons stored away as his personal notes in hope someday a chance for them to be realized would emerge.

Now, over two decades later, they are all dusted off and reforged into a series of tales, ready to take listener on a unique journey as SARYASIGN was formed and these stories could finally be unfolded.
The initial story will be told over the course of four albums and Throne Of Gold is the beginning.

SARAYASIGN is a cinematic melodic hard rock band, and we took all that we learned to love about movies and poured it all into the mix of this concept. With guitar driven roots from the late 70’s, and the cinematic experience of the 21:st century, layered with strings and storytelling driven, melody-focused songs with an edge, the listener will be in for a treat.

Stefan Nykvist: Lead and backing vocals
Daniel Lykkeklev: Bass

Andreas Axelsson-Hofgren: Keyboards
Jesper Lindbergh: Drums, Rhythm guitar, Loops & Soundscapes
