Redemption Announces New Album "This Mortal Coil" Details

Redemption, which features in its ranks guitarist/songwriter Nick van Dyk and Fates Warning vocalist Ray Alder, has announced that the band's 5th studio album release and follow-up to "Snowfall On Judgment Day" will be entitled "This Mortal Coil." The new album is to be released October 11th, 2011 in North America and on September 26th, 2011 in Europe and via InsideOut Music.

The band recorded and mixed "This Mortal Coil" with producer Neil Kernon (Queensryche, Nevermore, Kansas, etc.). The album's artwork, available for viewing below, was created by
acclaimed artist and longtime band collaborator Travis Smith.

Redemption's Nick van Dyk checked in commenting on the album as follows:

"I'm extremely pleased to announce that work on 'This Mortal Coil' has been completed.
It was a pleasure to work with Neil Kernon during the production, although I dare say we had more challenges and curve-balls in this process than either of us is accustomed to. Nonetheless we overcame everything in our path, from internet failures to lightning strikes, and since one of the themes of this CD is essentially overcoming adversity, the production process served as a bit of a metaphor for the whole concept!

"The new CD continues our creative effort to combine heaviness with melody -- fusing those disparate elements has always been part of Redemption's sound, along with an element that I have called emotional urgency, which we've maintained here. All in all, it sounds like Redemption -- although importantly I think it's by far our best-sounding record, owing to the work of Neil Kernon and the mastering of Alan Douches."

And Van Dyk adds regarding the artwork:

"We have worked once again with the incredibly talented Travis Smith on our art; we work very well together and he has a proven knack for bringing my concepts to life visually."
