New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The Brooklyn synth and electro artist wields her mighty hammer with epic Led Zeppelin cover.
Award-winning synth, cyberpunk and electronic rock artist, songwriter and producer C Z A R I N A takes a monumental Led Zeppelin original and recreates it with powerful swagger and thunderous drama in her latest release entitled "The Valkyrie (Immigrant Song)." The Brooklyn-based artist combines retro-futurist synths reminiscent of 80s films such as Tron, Blade Runner, and Flash Gordon with progressive modern rock thru giant distorted guitars and heart-thumping drums, creating a new landscape to support her unmistakable hyper-dynamic vocal range worthy of Asgardian lore.
"According to Norse mythology, Valkyries are the female hosts who usher the souls of the brave warriors to Valhalla to aid the gods in preparation for the Ragnarök: A series of events and a great battle that will determine the fate of the universe," C Z A R I N A says, explaining the rebranded title of her cover — and its timely message. "The world as it stands now is facing our very own and very real Ragnarök: A sobering reality that is affecting all humanity, regardless of race, religion, background and location.
"The Valkyries now call for unity amongst all the brave warriors and for all forces to rise, armor up and draw out their mighty swords. We have a real battle to fight. It is a battle that will test our abilities to maintain wellness not only in physical forms, but also the expanse of our emotional, mental, spiritual, and intellectual capacities. For the first time, everyone in this world is united, all aboard a singular vessel. Our unity and our response to crisis determines our real qualities and who we truly are as humans. We will remember this period not by its outcome, but by how we usher ourselves and each other through in strength, in kindness, in love, in fealty and respect for all humanity as a whole."
