After numerous issues, delays, hiccups and unforseen circumstances, London progressive metal outfit Chapters are delighted to confirm the release date of their début album. Chapters first full length effort is titled “The Imperial Skies” and will be available to the metal masses from next Monday, 14th October 2013.
Chapters front man Joe Nally is understandably delighted that the album’s release is almost upon us:
It’s been a long time coming and we’ve certainly had our make or break moments over the years, but we’re thrilled to finally release ‘The Imperial Skies’ to our fans. With ‘The Imperial Skies’ we really wanted to portray all of our influences as musicians to create a diverse and experimental album to showcase what Chapters is all about. The support that we have received from our fans has been amazing and it’s exciting to finally give people our debut album.
The Imperial Skies features guest appearances from Sylosis main man Josh Middleton and Viatrophy singer Adam Mayes who each feature on one song apiece, and soloist Sian Sanderson, who lends her considerable voice to two tracks on the album. The Imperial Skies was produced by Sam Burden and recorded at Empire Recording Studios in Guildford.
