earMUSIC recently announced the release of Tarja's new single, 'Victim Of Ritual'.
An evocative snare-drum that sounds like it was coming from a mysterious place, the tender sound of an orchestra joins followed by a familiar and seductive melody played by an oboe. When Tarja’s distinctive voice resounds through the speakers, her warm timbre fills the room. Her melody is full of emotions and tender, before the song explodes into an epic, heavy chorus:

“Hysterical, tragical
Victim of ritual
Cynical, critical
Victim of ritual
She's a killer, killer
She's a killer, killer”

A teaser clip for the single is now available:  

Inspired by the one-movement orchestral piece ‘Boléro’ by Maurice Ravel, the almost six minutes long ‘Victim Of Ritual’ is the first single from Tarja’s forthcoming album, Colours In The Dark. The song will be released as download, CD single and 7” vinyl on July 12th via earMUSIC.

Both physical releases will surely become rare collector’s items, being made available in strictly limited quantities. The 4-songs digipak CD-single is limited to 3,000 copies worldwide, whereas the 2-track 7” vinyl is limited to only 1,500 units worldwide. A video for ‘Victim Of Ritual’ is also scheduled for July.

Single tracklisting:

Side A: 'Victim Of Ritual'
Side B: 'Victim Of Ritual' (First Demo)

Maxi Single:

'Victim Of Ritual' (First Demo)
