Yorkshire progressive doom-death metallers THE PROPHECY have issued the following update:
"THE PROPHECY are currently in the studio recording 'Into the Light' — the follow-up to their 2006 opus 'Revelations'. Recording is taking place at Priory studios in Sutton Colefields and is being produced and engineered by Greg Chandler of ESOTERIC fame.
"The album consists of eight tracks and promises to be the heaviest and most technical album the band have produced so far (and of course with a heavy dose of emotional soundscapes, deep rooted conviction and immense riffage the band are renowned for.
"The album's release date has not yet been finalised as artwork is still in progress with Gary Griffith's (MORGION) handling the production of the CD package. However, comments from Gary suggest the cover will be going for the epic visual surreal look as ith the previous two albums ashes and revelations.
"Songs from the demo to 'Into the Light' can be heard on the band's MySpace with a studio report to be added soon. The band are also to be interviewed by Ragnarok radio station regarding the making of the new album.
"The band have also made available some live footage from the april 2008 tour on their Last.fm site and will be producing a studio report to be published on the MySpace and website."
