It is never too early for holiday music! Yuletide rock ensemble WIZARDS OF WINTER - which features original members of the TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA - bring you a brand new guitar-driven instrumental track entitled "Flight Of The Snow Angels". Listen to this track below.

Featuring an electrifying and classic progressive rock sound infused with more than enough holiday cheer for the whole family, listeners will enjoy "Flight Of The Snow Angels" and all of the timeless tracks on the band's upcoming album, The Magic Of Winter, produced by Eric Rachel at Traxeast (SYMPHONY X, SKID ROW, STYX) and releasing on November 12, 2015. Pre-order here: http://wizardsofwinter.com/store

When writing "Flight Of The Snow Angels", music director/keyboardist Scott Kelly was looking to create a song that could set the right mood as an opener for both their CD and live show. "It had to be upbeat as well as majestic. Multiple ideas entered my mind. One was of snow as it is blown by the wind. The other was a concept taken from the movie City Of Angels where the angels were always positioned somewhere up high and "fell" to the earth. Hopefully the visual of angels soaring through a snowy scene is evoked in the mind of the listener."

Guitarist Fred Gorhau adds, "When Scott and I were working on this track, I wanted the guitars to sound like the title - lots of bounce and a majestic feel, and I think that comes across throughout the song. My favorite part of this track is the dramatic arpeggio climb on guitar and keys - it builds quite a bit into a reprise of the intro. This song sets a great mood for me and is a total blast to play."

Catch the WIZARDS OF WINTER on tour!

Hear "Flight Of The Snow Angels" and more on tour! The WIZARDS OF WINTER recently announced "An Evening With Wizards Of Winter" - a 20-city U.S. holiday tour beginning November 19th in Ft. Lauderdale, FL and ending on December 29th in Harrisburg, PA. The WIZARDS OF WINTER will perform an entire set of original holiday music at each stop of their theatrical, family-oriented rock opera experience. See below for a full listing of tour dates.

In addition to music from The Magic Of Winter, "An Evening With Wizards Of Winter" primarily includes music from the group's previously released original Christmas album, Tales Beneath A Northern Star, which was originally written for this rock opera performance. The libretto and music together take the listener on a journey throughout space and time on the night of Christmas Eve in search of the true meaning of the season.

The WIZARDS OF WINTER also cover select TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA tracks during the show, including "First Snow", "Queen Of The Winter Night", "Christmas Eve In Sarajevo (12/24)" and "Christmas Nights In Blue".
