Victor Smolski’s Almanac stands for a new dimension of symphonic power metal, featuring three singers: Jeannette Marchewka (Lingua Mortis Orchestra), Andy B. Franck (Brainstorm) and David Readman (Pink Cream 69).
In March of 2016, Almanac unleashed debut album “Tsar,” followed by a European tour alongside Orden Ogan, as well as EU headline tour in the spring. Within the past few weeks, Almanac completed the recording of a second long player entitled “Kingslayer,” which was recorded at HeyDay Studios in Wuppertal, Germany.
“Our second strike is complete,” reveals guitar player Victor Smolski. He goes on to say, “’Kingslayer’ is the logical follow-up to ‘Tsar,’ just more compact, heavier and faster. The experience now under our belts gained from our many live experiences, including the two tours and festivals, has been fully implemented in the studio. The band has grown closer and stronger, you can feel this unified energy within the new tracks. We took a lot of time and gave our very best. ‘Kingslayer’ is a crafted metal album with a lively power sound!”
New album “Kingslayer” will be released on November 3rd via Nuclear Blast. The cover artwork was once again created by Hungarian artist Gyula Havancsák (Accept, Destruction).
