STEEL PROPHET releases the “Tree of Knowledge” video


STEEL PROPHET released “Tree of Knowledge”, the second video clip taken from the forthcoming album “Omniscient”, which is due on July 11 in Europe and July 8 in the U.S. on Cruz del Sur Music. Firstly streamed exclusively at earlier this week, the video is now available on our YouTube channel. Please subscribe to keep updated on our bands’ engaging videoclips!

To see STEEL PROPHET‘s previous “Omniscient” video clip, titled “666 is Everywhere”, please follow this link.

“Omniscient” will be released in less than 3 weeks in a limited edition 36-page digibook, compact disc (24-page booklet) and digital album. We regret to inform the fans that, because of production delays, the vinyl edition is postponed to late August.

This much anticipated record comes ten years after the band’s latest studio release, and will be a concept album based on an original story written by STEEL PROPHET‘s guitarist and founder member Steve Kachinsky Blakmoor. Famous German artist Timo Würz delivered an amazing cover artwork, and prepared 12 original booklet illustrations which help explain the lyrics and story itself.

STEEL PROPHET is not new to telling stories throughout concept albums: in fact, its 1999 classic “Dark Hallucinations” featured the “Fahrenheit 451” story by Ray Bradbury. “Omniscient” will certainly continue the tradition in great style.

STEEL PROPHET releases “666 is Everywhere (The Heavy Metal Blues)” Videoclip

STEEL PROPHET has released the first video clip taken from their forthcoming album “Omniscient” (out on Cruz Del Sur Music on July 4th in Europe and July 11th in the United States). Ten years after their last studio release, the originators of the Progressive Power Metal movement return with the their classic sound led by Steve Kachinsky Blakmoor (guitarist and founding member) and by veteran metal singer Rick Mythiasin.  The recording  line up is completed by Vince Dennis (b), Chris Schleyer (g), Jimmy Schultz (d); after the recording original drummer John Tarascio, and guitarist John Paget returned to the band together.


  “666 is everywhere (the Heavy Metal Blues)” is the 6th(!) song of the album.  Although Steel Prophet is not well known for always being humorous, the whimsy of the lyrics is reflected in the video clip shot by Agent Steel/Redemption guitarist Bernie Versailles. About the song Kachinsky says “Steel Prophet knows metal fans have a fascination with the numbers “666”. And when you’re in a metal band trying to make a living, sometimes it seems like “666 is Everywhere”!”.

Omniscient” is composed of 12 songs based on an original story written by Kachinsky.  The idea of telling a story throughout a whole album is similar to STEEL PROPHET’s 1999 classic “Dark Hallucinations” which featured the “Fahrenheit 451” story by Ray Bradbury. The famous German Artist Timo Würz was hired to create the amazing cover artwork, and 12 original booklet illustrations to go with the lyrics and story itself. The album also contains a thirteenth song, a cover of QUEEN’sBohemian Rhapsody”, which was successfully presented by the band at the 2013th edition of the Keep It True festival in Germany; a video clip of the event will see the light shortly before the release of  “Omniscient”.

Omniscient” will be release in limited edition 32-page digibook, regular compact disc, limited gate-fold double LP and digital download.

STEEL PROPHET reveals cover artwork for “Omniscient”

Progressive Power Metal originators STEEL PROPHET (US) have made public today the cover artwork for “Omniscient”, the album that marks their come-back ten years after their last studio release.

The spectacular artwork was specifically created by German artist Timo Würz  and represents one of the central themes of the album: “The Tree of Knowledge”. We won’t go much into details at this stage, but as said “Omniscient” is a concept-album based on an original story written by lead guitarist and founding member Steve Kachinsky Blakmoor, and “The Tree of Knowledge” of the cover represents a very important “character” in the plot.

Following Steve’s suggestions, Timo Würz has also created 12 additional original panels that will guide the listener through the whole story.

On this regards, Steve adds “It was great to work with Timo.  His sense of form, color and space are impeccable.  He has great imagination, and his familiarity with the concepts we wanted to work with made it a perfect fit in bringing the story ideas to life.

“Omniscient” will be released by the end of June / beginning of July in Limited edition Digibook Compact Disc, Compact Disc, Limited Double LP and Digital.
