Tarja chose “The Unforgiven” to be the last single before the release of “Rocking Heels: Live at Metal Church”. This kick-starts a series of official live releases that follows Tarja all over the globe, performing in unique and inspired venues. It is unforgettably Tarja at her finest and “Rocking Heels”, is the journey her thousands of fans have waited for.
“The Unforgiven” is one of the most iconic songs in Metallica’s unmatched canon of classics. Tarja, an icon in her own, delivers an undeniably classic performance of that song and perfectly conveys the theme of the struggle of the individual against the aspirations of those who want to subdue him.
