Minneapolis power metal outfit Heliosaga has issued the following update about working on a new album:
"Hello, everyone! It's about time to give an update on our progress. The album release has taken a bit longer than we expected.
"We initially mixed the album where we recorded, but decided that we wanted to take it in a different direction. The album will now be mixed by Michael Hansen (Phonomik, Chainfist) and mastered by Jacob Hansen (Epica, Volbeat).
"Jacob will also be reamping the guitars! The artwork and photos for the album are just about finished as well.
"The artwork looks great and is being done by Artside Digital Studio (Shaman, Edu Falaschi). We should have more updates for you in the coming weeks!"
Symphonic/power metal band Heliosaga is proud to welcome new vocalist Chelsea Knaack, who is known for her lead vocals in the now disbanded DesDemon. The following press release was also issued:
"Damien Villarreal formed Heliosaga in 2010 with a dynamic selection of musicians around San Antonio, Texas. Heliosaga’s powerful moving melodies, enhanced by Chelsea Knaack’s passionate soprano voice, will make Heliosaga a force among the ranks of the female fronted genre.
"Heliosaga is writing new material and will begin pre-production for label representation following Chelsea’s relocation to Texas this Summer. The name Heliosaga is a metaphor derived from helios, the Greek word for sun, and saga meaning the story/ history; thus, Heliosaga represents the journey of life."
Chelsea Knaack states, "I was looking for a new chapter in my life with a new adventure and Heliosaga fit the plan. It was also the chemistry with the guys; we are all very similar in many ways. It will be a great adventure indeed."
Heliosaga also commented, “Chelsea’s vocals are moving, her stage presence is captivating and she has an immense passion for this kind of music. Shortly after meeting we realized how well we click on personal and professional levels, so we can say that we have gained a great friend and an incredible band mate! We are eager to begin recording our debut album together, which will be released early next year.”
