REDEMPTION the Los Angeles-based progressive metal band led by guitarist/songwriter Nicolas van Dyk and featuring vocal legend Ray Alder of FATES WARNING has issued the following update:

"REDEMPTION's fourth CD, 'Snowfall on Judgment Day', is expected to be released this summer worldwide through Inside Out. The album is currently being mixed and mastered by our good and talented friend Tommy Newton, who produced our last two CDs and whose work also includes CONCEPTION, HELLOWEEN, UFO and others, at Area 51 Studios in Celle, Germany. Artwork will once again be by our creative visual partner Travis Smith.

"Musically, we have continued to grow and expand on the basic REDEMPTION formula. We have continued to push the envelope of heaviness combined with strong melody and emotional urgency in the music and I think the collection of songs is very strong, with some very in-your-face tunes that are among the heaviest in prog metal to some quieter, more elaborate moments, with technical thrown in where it belongs."

01. Peel

That duet is bound to be great if it's a ballad. I'm pumped for this album.

It's almost impossible for me to believe this won't be in my top 10 of 2009, I have really high expectations.
