Mortanius - Last Christmas (Wham Cover)
Philadelphia's progressive power metal outfit Mortanius are getting into the holiday cheer with their new lyric video for their cover of WHAM's "Last Christmas". The track is one of five that will appear on the band's debut album "Till Death Do Us Part" that will be released on Rockshots Records on February 22, 2019 to follow EPs 'A Voice From Beyond' (2016), 'Savage Garden' (2015), and 'Ethereal Waltz' (2014).
"With 'Last Christmas' we decided to emphasise the more melancholic nature of the lyrics while still keeping the 80s pop feel of the song. So instead of being a bouncy 80s pop song, it has become a slower 80s power ballad. The chorus is backed up by big choirs, and the guitar solo is very emotional." adds vocalist Lucas Flocco.
