Rising symphonic rock songstress BELLA D will unleash her debut full-length album, The Crystal Ceiling, this coming Friday, May 13, 2016. BELLA D has already revealed a collection of new tracks from the album, and even a standalone single (a haunting cover of Muse’s “Starlight”, available via iTunes), in advance of its release. Today, the singer has revealed her first two lyric videos for what are undoubtedly the biggest songs on the album – the never-before-heard monster rock track “Save Me”, and the equally huge “Invincible”, which saw it’s radio debut last month via Long Island’s 94.3 The Shark.
Visit iTunes now to pre-order BELLA D‘s The Crystal Ceiling, which features both of these tracks. To buy her accompanying comic book following alongside the album concept, visit http://drmagdn.bigcartel.com/. You can buy the album there, as well.
Alongside her musical teammate and producer/co-writer/drummer Charlie Zeleny (otherwise known by DRMAGDN and for his work with Dream Theater‘s Jordan Rudess, Blotted Science, Behold the Arctopus and others), BELLA D has created a world of her own with her steampunk-inspired lyrics and haunting melodies. Last week saw the release of their aforementioned standalone cover of Muse’s hit “Starlight”, re-imagined as a dark and mysterious version.

More about The Crystal Ceiling:
The Crystal Ceiling features session musicians known for working with multi-platinum artists such as (but not limited to) Taylor Swift, Blondie, Avril Lavigne, Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen and David Guetta. Impressively, not one of the musicians on the album aside from BELLA D and DRMAGDN recorded in the same room – this entire album is a true product of the future, utilizing the great power of the internet to craft it. The Crystal Ceilingis chock full of unforgettable, top-notch rock tracks featuring superior production and unmatched musical execution, sure to impress even the most discerning of palates.
The Crystal Ceiling is more than just a concept album – it is born of real life inspiration. The theme of escape from terrible circumstances, surmounting impossible obstacles and overcoming tragedy as a victorious hero is not just a fairy-tale – it’s Christie Oakes’ (the voice behind BELLA D) life story. Midway through the album recording process, Oakes received the terrible news that she had BRCA positive aggressive breast cancer and needed to not only endure grueling high dose chemotherapy, but also have massive surgery to remove both breasts and her ovaries, similar to Angelina Jolie. Since then, her music has taken on a higher stakes/real life-and-death meaning.
