Painted In Exile Posts Keyboard Video

Two weeks ago, Painted In Exile dropped new full-length album "The Ordeal." The reviews are in, and the critics have deemed that the wait was worth it. Heavy Blog is Heavy calls it "endearing and moving," while MetalSucks hails it as "a complex beast."

If you haven't picked up your copy of "The Ordeal" yet, you can sample some new tracks featuring accompanying performances by keyboardist Alan Hankers via a new playthrough video below.

Hankers states, "A lot of what I write as a keyboardist is influenced by my background as a classically trained pianist. While writing the album, my goal was to create a unique synthesized sound that from time to time would subtly allude to my influences of the past. In this excerpt video, you'll hear everything from 19th century style harmony, to dissonant clusters and 'dirty' synths that double guitar riffs." More...

Painted In Exile Reveals "The Ordeal"

Painted In Exile is officially back with brand new full-length album, "The Ordeal," set for release on October 28th, 2016. Pre-orders are available for "The Ordeal" now at this location.

Previous band followers and hungry, unsuspecting prog fans won't have to wait long to hear new music - check out a music video for the track "House of Cards" below, directed by Tom Flynn.

"The Ordeal" was produced, recorded, mixed and mastered by Jamie King, who is recognized for his work with bands such as Between the Buried And Me, The Contortionist, Scale The Summit and other modern progressive metal mainstays.

The album was recorded at both Basement Recording Studios in Winston-Salem, NC and The Fidelitorium in Kernersville, NC. Orchestral arrangements on the album were written by Alan Hankers. Additional production and engineering support was provided by Painted In Exile guitarist Ivan Chopik.

Producer Jamie King states, "This record is a truly great prog rock/metal record. And I'm not just saying that because I was hired to record it. I'm honored to have been a part of it. It will be revered as a classic!"

Guitarist Ivan Chopik adds, "The ingredients for 'The Ordeal' had been brewing for several years, so we went into the recording process with a specific vision of what we wanted the record to sound like. When the opportunity came up to have Jamie King produce and engineer, it was a resounding 'Yes'. He'd already worked on some of our favorite albums, so we knew the sonics would be on point. Beyond that, he gave us the environment to stay creative in the studio and pushed us to get our best, real performances. His vision and experience was integral to shaping 'The Ordeal.'" More...
