Type blending "Amberian Dawn" arises again with a pristine contribution, bringing incredibly popular tunes by the unbelievable "ABBA" into the metal world. The covers collection "Take A Chance" - A Metal Recognition for "ABBA" will be delivered on 2nd of December, 2022 through "Napalm Records". Following their enthusiasm, this collection honors perhaps of their greatest motivation and ushers in the beginning of an altogether different take on the metal class.

As a first taste of what can be generally anticipated, "Amberian Dawn" have set the main single free from the collection, named "SOS", in addition to another verse video. This inarguable evergreen the metal unit has handily reconsidered carries out their own trademark sound - showing their full reach with brand name ABBA-enhanced keys, prestigious verses and a guitar driven sound to make an interesting encounter.

Tuomas Seppala on the new single:

“’SOS’ is a great song. It's both a happy and sad song at the same time. The original version uses a unique piano sound. I didn’t want to use that kind of piano sound myself, because it wouldn’t have been as good as the original, so instead of that, I used more powerful guitars and other synthesizers in our arrangement. Our version of the song really brings ABBA into the world of metal in the 21st century.”

Proceeding with their heritage from the past collection, "Looking For You" (2020), "Amberian Dawn" have gathered to follow their enthusiasm and take a risk at being the beginning of another period for the metal sort with "Take A Chance" - A Metal Recognition for "ABBA". Presenting "ABBA-Metal", the band doesn't avoid exploring different avenues regarding classes while as yet remaining consistent with their metal starting points. Earworms joined with trademark "Amberian Dawn" components really metallicize the "ABBA" inheritance and change it into a metal encounter like never heard. With capably executed synthesizers making classic sounding keys, guitar riffs and performer Capri's radiant voice, the first lines inundate impeccably with shaking instrumentals. Running drums guarantee a high-paced experience that communicates the band's character without losing the snappy "ABBA"- suggestive consoles, famous verses and nostalgic sensation of the first. Counting evergreens like "Mamma Mia" and "Super Trouper", "Amberian Dawn" charms with various tracks. Addressing a wide exhibit of "ABBA" tunes from high energy to moving metal numbers like “Like An Angel Walking Through My Room”, the band conveys dumbfounding ABBA-Metal to an expansive crowd. So "Take A Chance" on “Take A Chance" new collection and get lost once again in the brilliant new metal universe of "ABBA".

Tuomas Seppala on the album:

“This was a ‘must do album’ for me. We had so much fun in 2019 working on our first cover song ever (which was ABBA’s ‘Lay All Your Love On Me’), that it was easy to make a decision to continue with a full ABBA covers album. The songs have been carefully selected, there’s a couple of big hit songs of course, but some of my personal favorites, like ‘The Day Before You Came’, are also included. The recording project was eventually a really big challenge for all of us and needed a lot of work, but we’re all 100% satisfied with the results. This album really sounds like an AMBERIAN DAWN album.”
