Melodic Revolution Records and Wings of Destiny are thrilled to announce that the highly anticipated new concept album Revelations will officially be released worldwide via all Digital platforms on June 7th
This will be Wings of Destiny’s 4thfull length album, the new production features the participation of x – Mayan and current Firewind vocalist Henning Basse (Germany), ex-Helloween and leader of Masterplan the extraordinary guitarist Roland Grapow (Germany & Czech Republic), in addition, virtuoso keyboardist & guitarist Bob Katsionis (Greece) of Firewind & Outloud performs on the release.
All the songs of the album is interconnected in a single story about a young man who dives into an incredible vision, being his dark inner journey, in which he must face the demons and save the world, sacrificing his own life, in the event described as ” Revelations “, facing the supreme evil, represented by an entity called ” Chaos “.
During this incredible story, the young man, with the help of the guardian angels, who accompany him in the battle that occurs inside him, delivers his life and his body, being possessed, in order to destroy the immortal enemy of humanity… will the story continue?… you will know when listening to the full album, this is a true fantasy story that is developed through the songs.
“It was decided to take it to another level with this one, adding a lot of musical styles, memorable melodies, orchestration, ripping solos and vocals. Also, the lyric content was profound, there are references to Lord Byron “My Soul is Dark” poem in the song “Lost in the Dark” and Robert Louis Stevenson “Requiem” poem in the song “Requiem.”
Each song on the album stands on its own, but it should be taken as a whole conceptual work. International artists such as Roland Grapow, Bob Katsionis, and Henning Basse certainly gave it additional artistic punch and spin. There is also one completely acapella piece “Divine?” that is a prelude to the song “Rising Chaos” that includes a completely new element to the band`s sound showing the versatility of what can be done without instruments whatsoever. It can be considered as our most ambitious and complex work so far.”, says Anton Darusso, leading man, composer, and producer of the band.

About Wings of Destiny
Wings of Destiny, previously called Destiny, is a Power Metal band from Costa Rica formed in late 2013 by vocalist Anton Darusso and bassist Bryan S. Molina, with strong influences from bands like Stratovarius, Angra, Helloween, and Rhapsody, among others. Currently, the band consists of six members: Anton Darusso (vocalist and founder of the band), Alejandro Amador (keyboards), Dani Chaves (Lead guitar), Cristian Jiménez (Rhythm guitar), Edgardo Monge (bass) and Roberto Ulloa (drums).

In that same year, Destiny signed with the German label PowerProg and released a special edition of the CD TIME, which contains two bonus tracks, one of them with the participation of the Italian vocalist Roberto Tiranti (formerly Labyrinth). in the end, the band changed its name to WINGS OF DESTINY, due to the existence of a European band with the name Destiny. Parallel to the change of name, the band began to work in the second production.
