Earlier today, German Symphonic metallers Xandria have unveiled their new singer and frontwoman, Manuela Kraller.

She started singing at the lately age of 23, took classical lessons and sang in church and gospel choirs. As her interest towards rock and metal music grew up on her, she found herself performing in a Swiss metal band called Nagor Mar. She also became a singer in the famous act Haggard as a tour musician. You can watch her personal introduction video below.




The band stated earlier: "The search has been long, but it has been worth it! She is the one we have been looking for! We already have begun working on the finalization of the music for the new album with her, so we hope to enter the studio for recording the new album in the new year as soon as possible."

And Manuela commented as follows: "Finally the waiting has come to an end and I am very happy to tell you that I am the new front woman of Xandria! At the moment we are working on the preproduction of the new album to present the new material as soon as possible to you. I am very excited about rocking the stages with the guys in future and I am looking forward to see you all live at the concerts!"

Anyone who has done vocal parts for Haggard should be auto-awesome

Beautiful voice... It's totally appealing for me and I also like her appearance, so we shall see...


@HateSpark: Good point, dude.

Not bad... not too impressive either.
I just hope these guys are not making the same mistake Nightwish did. That song you posted reminded me when Nightwish released the single "Eva" to promote their new album/singer ...that was a real disappointment, on the other hand this girl still has the benefit of the doubt.
Anyway, good job finding that youtube link

Hehe, thank you, guys! You're totally welcome!

C'm on - that's just one song by some unknown Swiss band! She has sung for Haggard, so I don't get the point of discussing her vocal abilities.

An operatic voice on her would be sexy xD

Wow, it's been so long!!!
I miss Lisa so much because somehow her voice perfectly matches the music of Xandria.
However, let's see what this girl will bring us. She toured for Haggard right? That's a great advantage.
