Bulgarian female-fronted heavy metal band RAMPART has released a music video for the song “June 22nd”, taken from band’s upcoming fifth album “WWII: Memories For The Future”. The main topic line of the lyrics is conceptual and features less known historical facts about the most far-flung, destructive, and lethal war in the world’s history.
The song story describes the Russian bombing of the North-East region of Bulgaria, after the day of the Third Reich’s attack on the Soviet Union. The bombing is a direct consequence of the fact that during the attack the Southern Russian Front went on the offensive, entering Romania, and its aircraft reached Bulgaria.
RAMPART is ready with their new album “WWII: Memories For The Future”. The songs have been mastered by Michael Rodenberg (AVANTASIA, KAMELOT, HEAVENS GATE, and RHAPSODY OF FIRE).
The artwork of RAMPART’s new album presents the idea of United Europe by three emblematic cathedrals: Westminster Abbey at London, Cologne Cathedral at Köln, and Saint Basil’s Cathedral at Moscow. It also features four models of planes: the English Spitfire, the German ME-109 TL, the American P-51 Mustang, and the Russian IL-2 which present the technological basis of the new European economy. The album’s artwork encompasses the achievements of the civilization.
RAMPART was founded in 2006 around the vocalist Maria Diese. The band previously released four albums, two EPs, and opened concerts for SAXON, KREATOR, QUEENSRYCHE, FLOTSAM AND JETSAM, ANVIL, UDO DIRKSCHNEIDER, SCANNER, BLAZE BAYLEY, and more.
