American sci-fi power metal duo DIRE PERIL featuring Jason Ashcraft (Helion Prime) and vocalist John Yelland (Judicator) are premiering their latest lyric video “Queen of The Galaxy” featuring Unleash The Archers vocalist Brittney Slayes whom reprise’s her role as Barbarella for a re-recorded version of the track. The song is their second single off their upcoming album “The Extraterrestrial Compendium” due out November 9th, 2018 via Divebomb Records to follow their three previous EP releases “Astronomical Minds” (2013), “Queen of The Galaxy” (2014) and “Through Time and Space” (2015).

The band comments: “Telling the story of Barbarella the Queen of the Galaxy, we are joined by the first guest musician on the album Brittney Slayes (Unleash the Archers). This is actually a re-recording of an older Dire Peril track and the lyrics were written by original vocalist Norman Skinner. 

Check out the premiere of “Queen of The Galaxy” below.

Inspired by all manners of science fiction, “The Extraterrestrial Compendium” bases each one of its 12 songs on classic sci-fi movies including Predator, Total Recall, Starship Troopers, and E.T. and features guest performances by Brittney Slayes (Unleash The Archers) and the mighty Arjen Anthony Luccassen (Ayreon, Star One, The Gentle Storm).

“The album takes you on a journey all based on different sci-fi films. From fast aggressive right hand attacks (in style of Iced Earth) to softer acoustic passages.” adds Jason Ashcraft.
