Australian metal act Dragonsclaw announced the completion of the band's debut album, “Prophecy.” The full announcement reads:
"Dragonsclaw have recently completed recording for their debut album, “Prophecy”, which is being produced by Stu Marshall (Paindivision, Empires of Eden, Ex-Dungeon). The album contains 10 solid tracks of indomitable metal and features a very special guest vocal performances by Blaze Bayley who’s legacy includes Wolfsbane & British metal legends Iron Maiden, and Alessandro Del Vecchio of Edge Of Forever, Eden’s Curse, Glenn Hughes, Ian Paice, James LaBrie. Original artwork for the album was designed by Maggotmaster. 'Prophecy' will be released in late 2011 and is sure to claw the ears of the most discerning power metal aficionados."
Vocalist Giles Lavery has the following to say regarding the bands debut: "We have worked really hard on putting together the best collection of songs, scraping anything that wasn’t up to our highest standards; infact we wrote and recorded one track we felt very strongly about in the final days of recording … totally crazy but thats what it takes to have the best record we can! The melody and song-writing has gotten a little bit lost these days in modern metal, we are hoping to re-introduce that while maintaining the crushing power that only heavy metal can provide , basically everything we grew up with and loved about the genre is here on display. I cannot wait for people to hear this material and to perform it live once we hit the road! Might I also add that working with Blaze Bayley is a dream come true, being a massive Maiden/Blaze fan I am truly honoured!"
Guitarist Ben Thomas had this to add: "For me its been a long time coming, but I feel the wait is worth it. Also noteworthy is the lyrical contributions from Corey Wyer from the band “The Cursing Stone."
