Symphonic metal news with a sprinkle of fairy dust

Upcoming Symphonic Metal Albums - End Of 2014/Early 2015

Back in January, this post highlighted symphonic metal (and similar genre) albums that were coming out over the year. Since then, we've enjoyed brilliant new records from bands like Delain, Epica, Lacuna Coil and Xandria. And now it's time for an update: new stuff has been announced, there's been postponements and cancellations, cover reveals and release dates.
