Tom Amoriello about the album:
“The entire AMORIELLO album is emotional, and the first single ‘Battle Song (feat. Vinny Appice)’ is one that takes on the perpetual conflict between two sides: aggression versus calm, combativeness versus compromise. The music is taut and stormy, then somber and solemn.
The whole album is a testament to the metal legends who inspired me, written with world-class musicianship from those same icons. I dedicated this track to Ronnie James Dio (I attended his last concert in Atlantic City, NJ) and wanted someone who had been a part of his sound, hence Vinny Apice. In the course of recording, showcasing his unique style, he let loose for 16 bars in that incredible solo, and all of the ambitions were met.” (Tom Amoriello)

Vescera Thomas Amoriello: Guitars Mike Vescera: Vocals John Macaluso: Drums Bjorn Englen: Bass Michael Troy: Keyboards Lyrics: Music is the life force, Air I breathe Cerebral cortex, in my bloodstream Never at a distance, Universal Need Planets Align, Galaxies The Synergy between Heaven & Earth Music is the Monarch of Everything Until my dying breath “in extremis” From mountain tops to astronomy Music is the monarch of everything Oh music, can’t put into words, how you make me feel You are my life, my destiny Need you more and more each and every day From serenity to anarchy Keeps me alive, (feeds me) The Minstrels played, the choir leads To unify, you and me I hear the call (shout for joy) Music is the Monarch of Everything My Viceroy, Divine Joy, You are for me, all I need Harps and lyre Strings and pipe The Cymbals crash Trumpets blast So Dance and sing Music is the Monarch of everything I hear the call (Shout for joy)
