Gothic Knights Issues Update On New Album

New York power metal band Gothic Knights has issued the following update on their upcoming new album, "Reflections From the Other Side:"

"The mixing of the next CD titled 'Reflections from the Other Side' is almost complete! We expect it to be finished by mid December! It will feature 10 songs, and from beginning to end the CD will feature the darker and heavier side of Gothic Knights. For those who know our music, this next CD has songs that are comparable in heaviness to some of our past work such as Sleepy Hollow, Vampyre, Nightmare of the Witch, Bridgekeeper, e.t.c. So for fans that appreciate the US power metal sound, they are gonna really dig this one.

"Rick Warlock Sanchez takes his voice to new soaring highs and brutal lows...from clean haunting vocals to brutal Halford like screaming/singing. With the addition of guitarist, Dave the 3rd, we will be presenting the band's first dual lead shredding solos. This CD also features keys wizard Jared Sloan, who laid down keys that would have King Diamond smiling. We, the band know that this is our finest work yet, and can't wait to share it with our friends and fans!"
