Laser’s Edge metal division, Sensory Records, has signed New York City-based progressive quintet INFINITE SPECTRUM, for the Summer release of the band’s sophomore album, Haunter Of The Dark.
The works of Brooklyn’s INFINITE SPECTRUM are eclectic, innovative, and experimental in nature, with influences tracing to such greats as Dream Theater, Symphony X, Steve Vai, and Neal Morse, as well as classic prog bands like Yes and Rush. Combining theatrical elements with the progressive metal genre, the band has crafted their own brand of musical storytelling, which includes elements of radio-style drama for a uniquely cinematic listening experience.
Three years since their 2013 debut album, Misguided, INFINITE SPECTRUM returns with their new epic concept recording, Haunter Of The Dark. Here, the outfit brings legendary master of horror H. P. Lovecraft’s short story to life through ambitious compositions featuring an abundance of dynamic, virtuosic playing, and powerful, melodic vocals. Re-teaming with Grammy award-winning engineer Chris Theis to capture their signature sound, Haunter Of The Dark is at turns hard-hitting, atmospheric, and cleverly crafted. The critically-acclaimed Misguided was just the beginning, and with Haunter Of The Dark INFINITE SPECTRUM has created a remarkable sonic journey for fans of prog both old and new.
Sensory will release Haunter Of The Dark during the Summer of 2016. An official street date, cover artwork, audio samples, and more on the album will be announced in the coming weeks.
