Decibel Magazine is hosting an exclusive stream of "The Illuminated Sky," the epic title track to the anticipated second album by UK-based progressive metal quartet, PROSPEKT, as the record is being prepped for worldwide release through Sensory Records next week.
Closing a four-year void since the release of The Colourless Sunrise debut, from technical power metal, laden with soaring vocals and blistering guitar work, to epic orchestral driven prog,PROSPEKT has produced their best effort to date. The Illuminated Sky is an album that excites and takes the listener on a journey through the cosmos via the wonders of prog.
Offers PROSPEKT's Lee Luland, "We're all super hyped for the album release next Friday. The title track offers a perfect representation of what you can expect from the new album. Musically it's a busy track - plenty of riffs, time signatures and key changes. As well as the big choruses and hectic solos! It's been a long road and a lot of effort but we are thrilled with how the album has turned out and can't wait for everyone to hear it."
Decibel declares, "Progressive metal group PROSPEKT have a shiny, textured album on their hands with second release The Illuminated Sky. Straddling the line between power metal and prog,PROSPEKT should satisfy any desire for powerful vocals and virtuosic guitar soloing."

The Illuminated Sky will see release July 21st, 2017 through Sensory Records, who also released the band's The Colourless Sunrise debut. Find CD and digital preorders at Bandcamp HERE.
PROSPEKT spent 2016 writing and recording The Illuminated Sky, during which they acquired two iconic guest artists to take part in the album. Guitar virtuoso Greg Howe of Michael Jackson fame provides an eclectic solo on the powerful "Alien Makers Of Discord" and vocalist Marc Hudson of Dragonforce provides a stellar contrast to Morris' voice on the epic "Where Masters Fall." Combine with that the excellent production, thanks to the mixing skills of Øyvind Larsen at Lionheart Studios, and the massive mastering job by mastermind Jens Bogren. Completed with artwork by Mattias Norén, the result is album that has progressed upon their first album and will no doubt open the floodgates to new fans.
