Hällas’ new album contains four tracks of adventurous rock that brings the listener back to an age were wizards and witches were still spoken of. The young Swedes have forged their début album together from a foundation of prog and NWOBHM mixed together with a pain filled storytelling expressed by the vocals of Tommy Alexandersson. The twin guitars set an early 80’s mode while the rhythm and organ give the album a solid 70’s atmosphere. At 24 minutes the four songs tell stories about tyrants, knights, possessing demons and the end of the world. The album is to be released by the Sign Records the 27th of November. The band began the recording session in Treasuresound, Jönköping as a four piece. The band focused much of their studio time to bring forth the progressive side of their music. During the process the band and producer Nicklas Malmqvist realized the band needed keyboards to add depth to their progressive sound. Nicklas became the fifth member of a line-up already consisting of Tommy Alexandersson, Kasper Eriksson, Marcus Petersson and Alexander Moraitis. Album artwork is created by Nightjar Illustrations who previously worked with bands such as Uncle Acid, Danava and Sons of Huns.
