EXILED HOPE, the blackened power metal project of Sofia Frasz, has released “Over For You”, and on all streaming platforms. The song is from her album Apocrypha which will be released in late 2024.

Sofia comments:

At this point in the story, the few remaining positive influences in the character’s life are trying to persuade him that his humanity is worth reclaiming, even though he thinks he’s beyond saving. More broadly, the song is about recognizing that as long as you keep fighting, you’re already winning. Life circumstances and other people might try to control you and how you view your situation, but the final decision is in your hands and it’s not over until you say it is.”

Multi-instrumentalist Sofia Frasz established EXILED HOPE in 2019, and draws musical inspiration from the likes of AVANTASIA, NIGHTWISH, KAMELOT and CRADLE OF FILTH to name a few. EXILED HOPE’s releases all take place in the same fictional universe and combine to form a dark fantasy metal opera. Each album centers on a character dealing with both an internal and external conflict in this world, and the lyrics explore how they navigate those conflicts. This is intended to provide some kind of escapism through the lyrical worldbuilding, while still keeping the songs grounded in real, relatable emotions despite their fantastical setup. EXILED HOPE is working towards the next album, Apocrypha, due to be released in late 2024. Through EXILED HOPE, Sofia has composed music for two short films, Hallowed Paths and What Happens After Midnight, and has collaborated with UK melodeath outfit STEEL FORGE.
