Zu den Coversongs sagt die Band:
“The first is, like most of you already guessed, our version of Sonata Arctica’s classic “Don`t Say A Word”….
As for the second, let us tell you a little story….
During the photoshoot for the Sacrificium record we were digging through our music libraries to find something appropriate for getting us in the right mood. At some point we got stuck with an artist every one of us had a crush on someone with and a story to tell about back then from our teenager days in the earlier 90ies.
We straight away started joking about doing a Xandria version of this particular song, but really forgot about it until the discussion of doing some remake for an EP came up again. With the biggest respect we started this operation of transforming one of our all time faves, a real classic, into a Xandria hymn. Well, we think we quite did an “okay” job and on July the 31st it`s your turn to decide whether you`ve got a favorite song or not ;-): “Fire & Ashes” will contain our intonation of Meat Loaf’s “I would do anything for love (but I won’t do that)”. This one is for you! Enjoy!”
