Vocal powerhouse Veronica Freeman (Benedictum), will be doing session work for the Lyraka project.

Lyraka is described as a "Wagnerian Opera Metal" project that encompasses a set of highlights CD's, as well as a 3-D animated movie. Graham Bonnet (Rainbow, MSG, Alcatrazz) and Tommy Heart (Uli Jon Roth, Fair Warning, Soul Doctor) are also contributing vocal tracks.

Andy DiGelsomina, the composer and lead guitarist of the project, commented: "I was massively inspired by Veronica's performance on the Benedictum CD's. She is not only viciously heavy when neccessary, but has a phenomenal sense of dynamics. Veronica is as gloriously heavy metal as you can get, and we are excited about working with her."

The first volume of the CD set, Lyraka Volume 1, is set for release in March 2011.

This seems exciting. I like the "Wagnerian Opera Metal" tag applied to it.

Wagerian opera seems like it would lend itself incredibly well to metal. And Veronica Freeman is AMAZING. I would never have associated her with anything "opera" but I'm very intrigued now. Her voice is just plain bad-ass.

Richard Wagner Rocks! Looks like they're into Dio too. Very cool. Last time I heard Graham Bonnet was on that Impellitterri album a few years ago. He was really heavy,
