TARJA

The sixth full-length studio album by legendary Finnish Operatic/Symphonic Rock/Metal soprano singer and she’s band.
“The Brightest Void” is the second part of the seventh full-length album, “The Shadow Self”, although, chronologically, it was released before “The Shadow Self”. It has to be considered as prequel because, musically speaking, it carries on from where the second full-length left off, keeping the same vibe of diverse sounds and featuring more guest vocalists, such as Michael Monroe (ex-Hanoi Rocks) and Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) playing drums.
“An Empty Dream” is the highlight of the album, with an ethereal arrangement contrasted by Tarja’s warm, emotional vocals. The album also includes a new mix of Tarja’s duet with Within Temptation, “Paradise (What About Us)”, but the absolute surprise of this release is definitely the cover of James Bond’s “Goldfinger”, originally sung by legendary singer Shirley Bassey. The arrangement is absolutely fantastic, and Tarja’s voice shifts from lower notes to the heavier moments of the song with great confidence.
Overall, Tarja demonstrated that she is not bound by genre labels and that she can elegantly put her own spin on anything she sings. This release is a challenging work that never gets boring or repetitive; a treat for fans and a statement for anyone who ever doubted Tarja’s skills.
Beside Within Temptation, album guests list features: Michael Monroe (ex- Hanoi Rocks), Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Toni Turunen, Mike Terrana, Alex Scholpp (Sinner), Max Lilja (ex- Apocalyptica, Hevein), Julián Barrett (Asspera, Barilari & Lörihen), Kevin Chown (Edwin Dare & Mike Terrana), Doug Wimbish (Living Colour), Torsten Stenzel (York, ex- Tarja), Peter Barrett, Christian Kretschmar, Bart Hendrickson, Guillermo De Medio, Luis Conte, Mervi Myllyoja, Fernando Scarcella, Tim Palmer, Nicolas Polo, Jim Dooley, Miguel Ricardo Borzi.
