New Album “The Illuminated Sky” Detailed By Prospekt

Laser’s Edge division Sensory Records announces the re-emergence of UK-based Prospekt, as the band completes the textured second album, “The Illuminated Sky.” Closing a four-year void since the release of the lauded “The Colourless Sunrise” debut, the follow-up will see release this July.

Prospekt spent 2016 writing and recording “The Illuminated Sky,” during which they acquired two iconic guest artists to take part in the album: Guitar virtuoso Greg Howe of Michael Jackson fame provides an eclectic solo on the powerful “Alien Makers Of Discord” and vocalist Marc Hudson of DragonForce provides a stellar contrast to Morris’ voice on the epic “Where Masters Fall.” Combine with that the excellent production, thanks to the mixing skills of Øyvind Larsen at Lionheart Studios, and the massive mastering job by mastermind Jens Bogren, and the result is album that has progressed upon the debut album and will no doubt open the floodgates to new fans.

From technical power metal, laden with soaring vocals and blistering guitar work, to epic orchestral driven prog, Prospekt has produced the best effort to date. “The Illuminated Sky” is an album that excites and takes the listener on a journey through the cosmos via the wonders of prog.

The band commented: “It’s been a long time in the making but we are super excited for everyone to listen to the new album. We feel it’s our best work to date – more progressive, polished and at the same time heavier, with a stronger emphasis on the melody. New members Rox and Michael have given awesome performances alongside guest artists Greg Howe and Marc Hudson. Musically, each composition has its own unique identity. From the cinematic title track to the Japanese inspired ‘Akaibara’, all of the songs come together and form an album that flows and connects. We wanted to create an album that could be described as ‘a journey through music’ and hopefully the listeners will feel that, when they enter ‘The Illuminated Sky.'”

“The Illuminated Sky” is slated for a July 21st release through Sensory Records. Stand by for audio samples, preorder links, and more to be issued in the days ahead. The artwork by Mattias Norén and the album’s track listing have been released below:

1. Ex Nihilo
2. The Illuminated Sky
3. Titan
4. Distant Anamnesis
5. Beneath Enriya
6. In The Shadows Of The Earth
7. Aline Makers Of Discord
8. Cosmic Emissary
9. Akaibara
10. Where Masters Fall

We Are Band Nerds Releases “Whore (Mend My Soul)” Lyric Video

Missing the ’90s something fierce? We Are Band Nerds offers up a nu-metal experience from Dallas, Texas, blending elements of jazz, metal, electronic, rap & rock. Check out a lyric video for the song “Whore (Mend My Soul)” below.

We Are Band Nerds has been described as “Deftones meets Outkast, weaving the former’s melodic approach to hard rock with the latter’s eclectic style of hip hop to create a unique tapestry of sound, allowing the music to appeal to a variety of individuals with a range of life experiences.”

New track “Whore” takes you on a journey through the aftermath of a failed relationship, how you emerge as nothing more than a mere shadow of the person you once were. The sheer thought of connecting with another person in the same way fills you with pure disgust and more than anything you just want to close your eyes and scream while you search for your next temporary fix.
