“Glare of Deliverance is much more than just a follow-up to our sophomore album Great Olden Dynasty, it’s a series of ten individual songs, each with its own music video/episode which combine in order like a short film or television series which tells the story of a young woman persecuted by the Holy Inquisition” says guitarist Tommy Mastermind. “We’ve been working on this project for a long time, and as our vision for this grew more and more ambitious, we realized we’d need to put together a bigger team. We brought on a concept artist, a team of costume designers, actors & actresses, video production crews, and even a full-scale professional choir!” Lead vocalist Nick Key adds, “Glare of Deliverance is an insane, monumental idea to execute. We tried to explain the scope of this project to our record label and they didn’t really understand what we are trying to do until after we put together a full production timeline, scripts & treatments for all the episodes, concept art, and rough mixes of the songs on the album. Eventually they began to understand our vision though. Even with what they are bringing to the project, we believe the best way to give this opera the quality it deserves is to directly involve our fans, and anyone who wants to be a part of this innovative musical project.”
Glare of Deliverance full-length album is available to pre-save on Spotify, Apple Music, or Deezer right now. Physical and digital pre-orders begin on September 11, 2020 and the full-length album will be released worldwide on December 4, 2020.
