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 www.apochs.net earlier this week, the video is now available on our YouTube channel. Please subscribe to keep updated on our bands’ engaging videoclips!

“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.

CORONER REUNITES, CELEBRATE WITH PHARAOH/CANVAS SOLARIS 7″

It seems like Cruz del Sur Music, releasing the split 7″ between Pharaoh and Canvas Solaris, forecasted a very interesting event for the metal world: the reunion of CORONER.
The seminal 80s Swiss band has been paid a special tribute released on wax at the end of June by Cruz del Sur Records. American bands Pharaoh and Canvas Solaris give justice to “Tunnel of Pain” and “Arc-Lite”, two of the most famous CORONER songs.
