Twilight Force are a Swedish symphonic power metal band formed in 2011. The band's main lyrical themes are based on fantasy stories. Their first studio album, Tales of Ancient Prophecies, was released in 2014 by Black Lodge Records. The band members want to keep their real names private, so they use nicknames. The band's second album, Heroes of Mighty Magic, was released in 2016.

History

The band was formed in 2011 by Lynd and Blackwald. After Chrileon, Aerendir, Born and De'Azsh joined the band they started on their debut album recording, Tales of Ancient Prophecies, which was released in 2014 by Black Lodge Records. This album hit 29th position in Swedish charts.[1] In December 2014 Twilight Force joined Gloryhammer on their European tour. In spring 2015, they toured with two other power metal bands, Sonata Arctica and Freedom Call.[2]

In February 2016 the band announced they signed a deal with Nuclear Blast Records.[3] On August 26 they released their label debut called Heroes of Mighty Magic with Joakim Brodén and Fabio Lione as guest vocalists.[4][5] They also played at Sabaton Open Air 2016, where they recorded the whole show for a live DVD. In the autumn of 2016 Twilight Force joined Sonata Arctica on their European tour and they also joined Sabaton and Accept in early 2017 on The Last Tour.[4][6] On September 7, 2017, they are scheduled to play at ProgPower XVIII in the US. In early October 2017, it was announced the singer Chrileon had left the band. He was temporarily replaced by Tommy Johansson (from Sabaton and ReinXeed)[7] during their tour as a special guest of DragonForce in October and November 2017.[8] The reasoning behind Chrileon's departure is unknown, though he claimed that he received a text from the other band members saying "Chrille, you are out of the band. We've found a replacement singer for this tour."[9] In June 2018, Alessandro Conti (Luca Turilli's Rhapsody, Trick or Treat) was announced as the new vocalist.[10]
