Greek/German heavy metallers MYSTIC PROPHECY (www.myspace.com/mysticprophecy) are entering the studio once more. For the coming months MYSTIC PROPHECY will be recording their 7th studio album entitled Raven Lord. This is going to be their first release with their new drummer Claudio Sisto who joined MYSTIC PROPHECY last June. Raven Lord will be released on October 28th 2011 through Massacre Records. During the same period the band is planning on touring and hitting most festival stages around Europe.
Recordings will take place in Prophecy Music Factory studios (www.myspace.com/musicfactory_prophecy) and production duties will be handled by R.D. Liapakis (MYSTIC PROPHECY, SUICIDAL ANGELS, VALLEY´S EVE, INSIDEAD and more ) with the rest of the band. There will be 11 songs on the new album. Artwork will be delivered by Jonas Kawalek who has worked again with the band in the past for their 5th album Satanic Curses.
Commenting on the creative process of the new album the band mainman R.D. Liapakis stated: “Mystic Prophecy is now more than ever in a turning point in their history. Fireangel overcame our expectations and our fans have shown us their support in the best possible way. The tour we did with STRATOVARIOUS gave the band the chance to get a very good sense of unity and groove which is generated by every member contributing to whole which finally is presented to the fans. This is what will make a difference in our upcoming album. The feeling of unity, amongst us, enhances the effect we bring out. More power, more feeling, more combined ideas, more diversity, but all in the thread that goes through it all which is MYSTIC PROPHECY. Two minds work better than one, so imagine all five of us contributing equally to the final result. I am confident that we’ll do our best to express what’s in our souls and hope the fans like it. Up till now we seem to have a common ground so this album will only enforce this bond with our fans and help us create new ones.
