American prog metallers Redemtion, featuring Ray Alder on lead vocals, return after a 4-year absence

with their sixth studio album which is out later this year through Metal Blade. “We’ve taken the longest break between records in our history, for a number of reasons. But we are excited to return with what I honestly believe may represent the best record thus far in our career. We are just putting the finishing touches on it now. The songs are unmistakably Redemption, with the combination of energy, urgency, melody and heaviness that marks all of our work” says guitarist and main composer Nick Van Dyk. This is the first time that the band won’t have guitarist Bernie Versailles on its lineup due to an aneurysm he suffered last October. A guitarist whose name, as well as other guests who contribute on the album, is not revealed yet, filled in for him.
