STEEL PROPHET: “Omniscient”‘s 10-min teaser online

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:

We know how much you have been waiting for this, but if you still are unaware of the greatness of “The White Goddess”, have a quick tour of the first press comments:

“The production is great and atmospheric, the musicians are top notch, the lyrics are perhaps the best written the genre has seen in a while and it’s very epic, perhaps too much. This is still the best Epic Metal album of 2013, I, without certain restraints, welcome the new reigning kings to their throne.METAL OBSERVER 9/10

“Atlantean Kodex deliver with ‘The White Goddess’ something special. EPIC is the word! With album tracks mostly clocking in 10 minutes or more, it takes you on a musical journey. Progressive edges (Fates Warning) combined with Manowar/Bathory grandeur! This is an album for a long time to enjoy! RATING: 9 stars (out of maximum 10 stars).PROGRESSIVE XGROOVES RADIO – 9/10

“An epic elegy, a call to battle! […] I sucked up every note of it, I enjoyed every melody. Albums like this do not come often anymore …” ROCK OVERDOSE, 95/100

Indeed the band has progressed much since their debut effort „The Golden Bough“. The sound is more  mature,  more dramatic, more  bombastic.  Everything  on  the  album  spells HUGE in  capital letters.  While  the  key  coordinates  old  Manowar  (Ross  the  Boss-era),  Bathory  (Twilight-era) and obscure  US  Metal  (Fates  Warning,  Cirith  Ungol,  Warlord…)  are  still  dominant,  the  band  has manage to explore new ground with „The White Goddess“. This is one of the few albums, which will leave noone cold.
