Byzantine To Record Fifth Studio Album

West Virginia outfit Byzantine has issued the following announcement about working on an upcoming album:

"It's been very quiet here in the Byzantine camp, and for good reason. We have taken the last few months to write what will become our 5th studio album.

"Tomorrow will be our first rehearsal in almost 3 months. We will begin learning the new songs, adding personal touches and making them true Byzantine songs. 7 songs have been written so far. We most likely will be adding a few more new songs along the way as well.

"With our new bassist Sean Sydnor and lead guitarist Brian Henderson both making their Byzantine recording debut here, this album will surely be a departure from our previous efforts. Stay tuned for more updates. Recording will begin in September when engineer/producer Jay Hannon lands back in WV."

Further details are forthcoming, and you can follow the band's recording process at Facebook here.

I'm super excited for this. I've loved this band since Oblivion Beckons. I hope the new guys turn out ok and even though it'll break new ground for them, it'll still sound like Byzantine.
