An intro and a creaking door welcome you into the MIRAGE universe. Full throttle from the off!
Welcome to “In The Days Of Rama”, the song that used to open the Danish heavy metal band Mirage’s live gigs, and will kick off the band’s second album.
Wait a minute… “Second album”?
You heard it right. The record Mirage should have released some thirty-odd years ago is finally coming! Back in the late 80s the band had to quit because the English record company sent their royalties to their Danish record company, who pocketed the money and filed for bankruptcy! Despite interest from the Danish label Medley Records, the second album was never released, though all the songs were written.
So, everything on the upcoming Mirage album was written in the late eighties.
On the back of the first album (“…And The Earth Shall Crumble”, released in 85) it was written: “Watch out for the sequel”. Alright, here is the band again, back in the very recognizable Mirage style: Metal with melody and good lyrics!
“What could be more natural than starting with a song about King Herod killing infants because of a slight disagreement with a dude called Jesus?”, laughs vocalist and founding member Torben Deen. “Hope you all enjoy it – I almost felt young making it – bang that head!”.
“In The Days Of Rama” is out now as a digital single via From The Vaults. The official video can be seen below or in the From The Vaults YouTube page.
The sophomore album from the band, “The Sequel”, will be released in the second half of 2022.
