Italy’s NWOTHM band TARCHON FIST unveils the video for the second single The Flame Still Burns.

The video for the title track deals with the core value of the band – the music described here as a motivating force to keep going despite the countless difficulties imposed by life.

The single The Flame Still Burns features Giacomo Voli (RHAPSODY OF FIRE) and Julien Tournoud (AMON-SETHIS) as special guests on vocals.

TARCHON FIST explain: “The pandemic changed everything and that is a matter of fact. Despite the many restrictions which forced us to work remotely during repeated and sudden lockdowns, we never stopped pursuing our projects which have always been driven by the great passion for what we do. Therefore, we have chosen the passion in all its forms as the main theme of this album. The Flame Still Burns is not only the title track of our new album, but it’s also a message which reflects ourselves more than ever. The love for music has been burning inside us since we were child and from this passion comes the energy which daily continues to motivate us”.

The Flame Still Burns was recorded and produced by TARCHON FIST at Roberto Priori’s PriStudio and Luciano Tattin’s Studio Tarconte.

The artwork was created by Mr. Stan W. D., who has already worked on the previous album Apocalypse.

The band comments: “The genesis and development of this album are the result of what we did during the lockdown which the pandemic forced us between 2020 and 2021. The common thread throughout record is passion, a concept we tried to decline on every song.”

The Flame Still Burns will be available as CD Digipak and Digital.
