  • Print

Australian female-fronted symphonic metal act Victoria K will be releasing their first official DVD Live Isolation Concert on 29th January via Rockshots Records. The live DVD experience was recorded during the pandemic crisis and includes all the songs from the highly acclaimed debut album Essentia unleashed during April 2020. Leading up to the DVD's release, Victoria K is sharing the video clip for the track "Freaks".

The band adds: "The song "Freaks" is based on the book 'Freaks' by author Kieran Larwood. In the book, The Freaks are a band of misfits, trapped in a nightly Victorian sideshow. The song "Freaks", therefore, explores how outcasts don’t fit in with the norms of society and are shunned by others and how these outcasts work through figuring out a way to finally accept and love who they are. The DVD was the only way we could share a concert of our music with the world during the global pandemic. It shows how adaptable and resilient we can all be during times of crisis and that nothing can stop the music that brings people together and transcends race, religion, and even a global crisis. As artists to be able to leave a legacy even during times of global crisis is humbling and a reminder that we can overcome all adversity. Critically to be able to give something back to the fans for all their support over the years was very important to us and we a grateful for how the album Essentia was received. So the live isolation show was really a thank you to all our fans and a reminder that together we can get through this pandemic."

Victoria K's talented songwriting and compositional influences include Evanescence, Within Temptation, Nightwish and Kamelot amongst other current bands in the European metal scene and her music have been likened to be a blend of these influences. Victoria K has racked up hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube with her own original creations and through featured videos alongside a number of talented musicians covering a plethora of songs.
