Armory Announces "Empyrean Realms" Album

Power metal band Armory's second album, “Empyrean Realms” is due for release on November 12th, 2013.

The album will be released and promoted worldwide by Metavania Music. “Empyrean Realms” contains nine original songs and was engineered, mixed, mastered, and produced by the band at Mystic Star Studios and Damage Studios, both based in Massachusetts, USA. The 12-page album booklet contains celestial artwork produced by England’s Gary Tonge.

Armory comments on the new album: “We believe 'Empyrean Realms' is a huge step forward for the band and an album which displays a style and sound which is more uniquely our own. Compared to our debut album, 'The Dawn of Enlightenment,' 'Empyrean Realms' has more dynamic composing and arranging, with more colorful melodies, head-banging riffs, key changes, and progressive elements. The lyrics are also more articulate, centering on the themes of metaphysics, cosmology, and the power of human will. If you like your metal with soaring vocals, crunchy guitar riffs, blazing solos, technical drums, finger-picked bass, flavorful key changes, and an epic atmosphere, then 'Empyrean Realms' was made for YOU!”

The band has also issued a statement on the extended length of time between albums: “Armory would like to personally thank all our fans near and far and throughout the years who have enjoyed our debut album and waited so patiently for the release of our second album. We are thrilled to finally unveil 'Empyrean Realms' and hope fans agree it was worth the wait. At this point we now intend to be much more interactive with our fans so like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, play us on YouTube, visit our new Website, sign up to our Newsletter, and send us your comments and critiques!”

Physical and digital pre-orders for “Empyrean Realms” and related merch are available now at the new Armory store here.
