Dawn Of The Dragonstar will be released on jewelcase CD, digibook, vinyl and digitally. The vinyl, as well as the limited digibook editions, includes several bonus tracks. One is an exquisite cover version of the fellowship’s 2014 song ‘The Power Of The Ancient Force’, performed by skilled singer-songwriter Hanna Turi. Secondly, you’ll be taken on an instrumental voyage through the western-most Kingdom Of Vhardas, with an orchestral version of ‘With The Light Of A Thousand Suns’. Last but not least, the Knights Of Twilight’s Might will for the first time be able to experience never before heard ancient rudimentary demo versions of two of the first ever recorded TWILIGHT FORCE songs, namely ‘Forest Of Destiny’ and ‘Enchanted Dragon Of Wisdom’. Both tracks were conjured up back in 2007, long beforeTWILIGHT FORCE was even an official entity or ever mentioned in the Book of Time.

Speaking about the new album, the band states, “Lo and behold! We are beyond elated to finally unveil the third opus of TWILIGHT FORCE: Dawn Of The Dragonstar. The absolutely magnificent artwork by the mighty Kerem Beyit once again brilliantly captures the adventurous and magical world of the Twilight Kingdoms; and a sparkling adventure it shall be indeed. Dawn Of The Dragonstar will be unleashed upon the realm of the living on August 16th, so we humbly ask for your patience for just a little while longer. In the meantime, practice your battle cries, sharpen your swords, and dust off your spell tomes. Make sure you are prepared to join and experience our triptych adventure.”
