Gunnar Idenstam – Metal Angel- On demand
Metal Angel is a collection of 18 (three of them not included on this CD) pieces and one Symphonic Sonata for large modern symphonic organ, each piece associated with a different angel in a gothic fantasy landscape.
Maybe there are angels all around us, living in a parallel world, who try to communicate with us and guide us if we listen? The angels are the link between God/the Creator and humans. There are both shining white angels, and fallen black angels. In this turbulent times, with war, climate crisis and Corona pandemic, it is more important than ever that we listen to the whispering of the good angels.
The musical language of these pieces is virtuosic and influenced both by the French cathedral tradition of the mid 20th century and by symphonic rock and metal. It reflects our time – a time in which we have to deal with conflict and war, climate- and Corona crisis. In these times it is more important than ever that we listen to the whispering of the good and light Angels and not to the destructive dark ones. The final pieces describe the Archangel and the Black Angel – and asks which of them will triumph. I am optimistic, so the piece ends with a jubilant hymn fortissimo, in which a choir of angels praise our beautiful world and life.
