Massacre Records is preparing to release "The Rise Of Resistance," the blazing fourth studio full-length from German metal warriors Circle of Silence, with the label having just confirmed July 2nd as the North American street date. A teaser trailer for the album can be viewed below, and the following press release was also issued:
"Since 2005 central Germany-based Circle of Silence has perpetuated their brand of rugged, classic but fresh traditional/power metal with a dark edge -- comparable to Iced Earth, Savatage, Brainstorm and Sanctuary -- their sound growing more potent and epic with each release. Following their 2006 debut album Your Own Story, followed by 2008’s The Supremacy Of Time and most recently The Blackened Halo released in 2011, The Rise Of Resistance boasts fifty minutes of the band’s most striking, solid metal yet. Once again the band sanctioned producer Vagelis Maranis (ex-Sanvoisen) in his Maranis Studios (Winter’s Verge, Saidian, Suicidal Angels) for the recording sessions, and brought in Vitaly Alexius/Scitart (Evile, Gainward) for the cover design. Circle of Silence’s uncompromising American style of power metal reigns supreme on The Rise Of Resistance." More...
Circle Of Silence is currently recording the new album "The Rise Of Resistance" at the Maranis Studios in Backnang, Germany. The band commented about the sound of the upcoming record:
"The first impression is that the new ones are a bit heavier than the stuff from 'The Blackened Halo' and a bit more straight forward. A lot of double-bass action is going on in those first songs!"
The guys have already posted the artwork of "The Rise Of Resistance," which was created by Francisco Garcés (a.k.a. Dibujante Nocturno) and can be viewed below.
Circle of Silence has also released a couple of song titles that will be featured on the album: "Eyes Of Anarchy," "Mind Conspiracy," "An Oncoming Storm," "Slave To The Greed Machine," "Blood Of Enemies," and "One Moment Of Hate." More...

"Some of you may have already seen them live, for example at The Prophecy23's CD release show back in July 2010.
