6-28-2010 - For Immediate Release Nightmare Records recording artist Halcyon Way have unveiled the art for their sophomore release, Building The Towers. The design was handled by the legendary Travis Smith, known for his work with Opeth, Nevermore, Avenged Sevenfold, Overkill, and many others. The album is due for worldwide release late Summer 2010, and the release date will be announced in the coming days. Two advance tracks from the album can be heard on the bands MySpace page. The follow up release to 2008s A Manifesto For Domination will be the bands first release to feature new vocalist Steve Braun, known for his work with Italian progressive-metallers ASHENT, who have released two records via Lion Music, as well as a special guest appearance by Pamela Moore of QUEENSRYCHE fame. Lasse Lammert, best known for his work producing the last several ALESTORM releases, will be producing the new album along with guitarist Jon Bodan. The drums were tracked at Open Sky Studios in Atlanta, GA with Mike Froedge (DOUBLEDRIVE, BLOODSIMPLE, DIXIE INCORPORATED) at the helm. We couldnt be happier with the way the art for Building The Towers is coming out Travis has really outdone himself for us, and we cant wait to get the CD in your hands, said guitarist Zane Matthews. Not only is the art incredibly impressive, but the songwriting, production, and performances on this album are all a huge step up from Manifesto. The band is fresh off of a May tour of the UK with FOZZY, and in addition to that Halcyon Way has appeared at Rocklahoma on three occasions, Nightmare Metal Festival II, Pathfinder Metalfest, and at ProgPower USA twice, as well as having shared the stage with HELLOWEEN, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, KAMELOT, TO/DIE/FOR, SYMPHONY X, DORO PESCH, and many others. Halcyon Way released their debut record, A Manifesto For Domination on Nightmare Records on November 11, 2008 to rave critical reviews. The album was produced by guitarist Jon Bodan with assistance from James Murphy (TESTAMENT, DEATH, OBITUARY), and was mixed by Lasse Lammert (ALESTORM). It also featured guest appearances from Jonah Weingarten (PYRAMAZE, AVIAN) and Blaze Pearson (THE SOULS UNREST).
