German power metal band MYSTIC PROPHECY will enter Prophecy Studios on December 19 to begin recording its sixth album for an early 2009 release. The as-yet-untitled effort will be mixed in Sweden under the direction of Fredrik Nordström (DIMMU BORGIR, ARCH ENEMY, IN FLAMES) and R.D. Liapakis (FIREWIND, CHASTAIN, ELDRITCH).
MYSTIC PROPHECY was recently joined by former NIGHTRAGE guitarist Constantine. "I feel very excited about it and it would be amazing to be in the band again with these super-cool guys!" Constantine said in a statement. "I played with them for one show the last June in Essen and I realised how good chemistry we have together as musicians both behind and on the stage and personalities as well."
He continued, "For those that haven't heard anything about me again, I can probably tell you that I'm also the main lead and rhythm guitarist behind the modern death/thrash metal band DESCENDING from my home country, Greece, and also ex-NIGHTRAGE member.
"At the moment we are preparing as hell the new album with the guys, so it would be 100% ready when we enter the studio in early December of 2008 to record it. I can tell you this one right now it will be the most heavy, melodic and aggressive MYSTIC PROPHECY album ever!"
MYSTIC PROPHECY released its latest album, "Satanic Curses", on October 19, 2007 via Armageddon Music. A single, entitled "Dark Forces", preceded the full-length CD in August.
