    Here is the latest news - taken from B;Mouth, which in turn came from ye ol' website.

    Enjoy! :cool:

    Utah-based progressive/power metallers KATAGORY V have announced the release dates for their fourth album, "Hymns of Dissension", as well as the track listing and artist creating the album cover. The band has currently completed the recording of the album and is moving into the mixing phase.

    "Here we are, at the half-way point with our fourth album! We've finished tracking everything finally, and are moving into mixing mode this week, but not without a few mishaps..." states bassist Dustin. "With performing some live shows during the recording process, we've had to balance recording with rehearsing, and sacrifice studio time which slowed thing down a bit, but fortunately, we are still on schedule. However, we also had a computer crash in the studio last weekend, which holds some of the vital information used in getting some of the mixing done, as well as click tracks and a few other needed programs. Thankfully, everything was recorded and already on tape, so it is only a minor financial and timely inconvenience. If that is all we have to worry about, then all is good!

    "The upside to all this, is that the product coming back so far is sounding excellent, and we feel it will be our strongest and most adventurous album to date. The rough mixes we have heard while recording some of the final parts, already has us very excited to get this album out there... We feel we have a lot to offer to metal fans with this new album, both musically and lyrically."

    KATAGORY V has also enlisted the talents of infamous Swedish artist Mattias Norén (EVERGREY, KAMELOT, INTO ETERNITY) to create the cover art for the "Hymns of Dissension" album.

    "We're very happy to be working with Mattias on this project, and he has already sent us the proofs of the finished product for us to look at," Dustin said. "It is far beyond our expectations and fits the mood of this album perfectly. Absolutely amazing! However, we are not ready to reveal it just yet…. Everyone will have to wait a bit longer for that."

    "Hymns of Dissension" has been scheduled for release via Lance King's (AVIAN, ex-PYRAMAZE/BALANCE OF POWER) label, Nightmare Records, in the U.S. and Canada on October 16. KATAGORY V has also inked a two-album deal with Greek label Burning Star Records for a simultaneous release in Europe, South America and Asia.

    The nine songs set to appear on the album are:

    01. Apologetic Heart
    02. No Matter What
    03. King's of the Valley
    04. Forlorn Child
    05. The Workforce
    06. Do Feeling Remain
    07. Can You Hear Them
    08. Lies and Illusions
    09. Listen to You, Listen to Me

    There will also be two exclusive bonus tracks for each release: The U.S. version will include the songs "Enemy" (previously unreleased studio track) and a re-recorded version of "Sands of Time", while the European release will have "Anthem of the Underground" as well as a re-recording of the underground classic "Evil Princess", which originally appeared on their debut album "Present Day".
