Kivanc Kilicer, a Turkish symphonic metal artist with 3 albums, is about to release a new single with legendary guitar player Mathias Kupiainen of Stratovarius.

Kivanc has some pretty impressive stage experience with bands like Scorpions and Europe.

With Finish sound and energy, Kivanc Kilicer’s new single “All the same” reflect a combination of symphonic and power metal with strong guitars and duet vocals.

The story behind “All The Same” is about buried pain and how time supposedly heals it. Life goes on as time flies adding up memories to its path. We look the same, healed, but it’s a trade-off recovery. Experience makes us wise and things look the same in our actions. Those memories, however, change the way we feel about ourselves. We look the same when we smile, cry, laugh, think etc, but inside, we are not. And we become bitter when we forget that we feel the same.
