New Song “The Illuminated Sky” Premiered By Prospekt

Decibel Magazine is hosting an exclusive stream of “The Illuminated Sky,” the epic title track to the anticipated second album by UK-based progressive metal quartet, Prospekt, as the record is being prepped for worldwide release through Sensory Records on July 21st. Check it out over here, or simply play it in the convenient player at the bottom.

Closing a four-year void since the release of “The Colourless Sunrise” debut, 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.

Offers Prospekt ‘s Lee Luland, “We’re all super hyped for the album release next Friday. The title track offers a perfect representation of what you can expect from the new album. Musically it’s a busy track – plenty of riffs, time signatures and key changes. As well as the big choruses and hectic solos! It’s been a long road and a lot of effort but we are thrilled with how the album has turned out and can’t wait for everyone to hear it.”
