The most fitting sound backdrop to sweeten the long wait until the next season of Game of Thrones may not come from Hollywood. Aaron Roterfeld sounds the call to storm the Seven Kingdoms: The Dark Rocker is back to pound our collective eardrums by unleashing his powerfully voiced and catchy epic “King of This Land” today. With heavy guitars and orchestral arrangements, he takes his listeners on a journey to another world between the impressive mountains of the Austrian Alps and the fantasy realms of Westeros.

With his first album “Blood Diamond Romance” in 2011, Aaron Roterfeld’s music career took off at the very point where others think they have already made it and he took the music world by storm with his melodic dark rock.

Now the “King of This Land” is sounding the horns for attack once more. With fat guitars and the opulent strings provided by the Prague Symphony Orchestra, the song seamlessly picks up the threads laid by the debut “Blood Diamond Romance” while even – as we’ve come to expect from Roterfeld – stepping up a couple of gears. While in alliance with wolves on the debut album, he won’t settle for anything less than fully grown dragons on the new one.

Roterfeld’s land, that’s the high mountains, dark forests and raging rivers of his Austrian homeland. Even as a child, he used to roam them preferably at night and you’d almost expect the declared fantasy fan and habitual adventurer to have slipped through a portal into the fictional world of “Game of Thrones” on one of his wanderings. Anyway, his strolls have provided him with more than enough inspiration for an opulent fantasy video, which is going to accompany the new song with the fitting imagery from his dark and outer-worldly realm eventually. Never mind that its completion is still in progress – it’s certainly no reason for the perfectionist Aaron to deprive the real world of the audio version of his new song any longer: “King of This Land” is available on Spotify, Amazon and iTunes from today!

The new album is already waiting in the wings as well: “Hamlet at Sunset”, a title inspired by the 400th birthday of William Shakespeare, is set to be unleashed in 2018.
