Mekong Delta Reveals New Album "In A Mirror Darkly"

Mekong Delta will release "In A Mirror Darkly" on April 29th, 2014 in North America via SPV/Steamhammer. The label comments:

"For almost thirty years, Mekong Delta has enjoyed an excellent reputation as an independent and exceptionally creative band in the world of progressive metal sounds. Albums such as The Music Of Eric Zann (1988) and Pictures At An Exhibition (1997) are considered classics of their kind.

"With their blend of prog metal, classical elements and thrash, the musicians are considered pioneers of a stylistic mix, which has been emulated, by a considerable number of epigones. Now the German quartet is set to unleash its latest recording: In A Mirror Darkly will be released April 29th via SPV/Steamhammer.

"Martin LeMar (vocals), Ralf Hubert (bass), Erik Adam H. Grösch (guitar) and Alex Landenburg (drums) have recorded a total of eight songs for In A Mirror Darkly, among them three instrumental numbers like the ingenious 'Inside The Outside Of The Inside' with its diverse arrangements."

Band founder Ralf Hubert comments: "Typically Mekong Delta, the new numbers all have a playing time of between five and seven minutes. As far as I am concerned, that's just the right time frame to gain sufficient stylistic depth without pushing the envelope or creating artistic ambiguities. I feel that we've once again found the right mix of complexity and uninterrupted leitmotiv."

Mekong Delta recorded this latest oeuvre at the band members' respective studios. Ralf Hubert produced "In A Mirror Darkly," and he states: "Thematically, the new recording will pick up where our 2010 release Wanderer On The Edge Of Time left off, although the new material is more loosely connected and only occasionally linked by little interludes."
