STEEL PROPHET has released today a 10-min video/audio teaser for its upcoming album “Omniscient” which will hit the streets on July 8th in the U.S. and on July 11th in Europe.
“Omniscient” marks the return of the originators of the ‘Progressive Power Metal’ movement 10 years after their last full length studio recording. It features the powerful metal melodies of founding members Steve Kachinsky Blakmoor and Rick Mythiasin.
This teaser follows the release of two video clips on YouTube – “666 Is Everywhere (the Heavy Metal Blues)” and “Tree of Knowledge” , both filmed by Agent Steel’s guitarist Bernie Versailles -, and features original artworks by acclaimed German artist Timo Würz. Besides working on “Omniscient” cover artwork, Würz has also painted 12 originals panels to illustrate the story narrated in “Omniscient”.
“Omniscient” concept is actually based on an original story written by STEEL PROPHET’s guitarist Steve Kachinsky Blakmoor. The limited edition 36-page digibook features the entire story, while the regular edition compact disc only has its introduction. But do not worry, as there will be a special link where fans will be able to download the story. “Omniscient” will also be released on digital and Gatefold double LP edition (available after summer).
“Omniscient” also contains the cover of QUEEN’s classic “Bohemian Rhapsody” which the band successfully presented on the Keep It True Festival’s stage last year.
Cruz Del Sur Music has opened today the pre-orders for the album through our online store:
DARKEST ERA have released a new video for the track ‘Beyond the Grey Veil’ on the same day that the band’s new album ‘Severance’ receives its European release via Cruz Del Sur Music. The video can be seen here:
Speaking about the new video, Guitarist Ade Mulgrew said: “Beyond the Grey Veil is the thematic centrepiece of the album. All roads lead to that song in some ways and it’s pretty representative of the kind of atmosphere we wanted to conjure up on Severance. Even Costin Chioreanu based the album artwork on it. The video was directed by Angus Mitchell, an extremely talented guy who was instantly on the same page as us in terms of the aesthetic we wanted to achieve.“
DARKEST ERA sophomore album “Severance” Compact can be purchased here.
