California’s GYGAX has released the first single from their impending third LP, High Fantasy, set for release on June 21st through Creator-Destructor Records. The label has posted the soaring new track “Hide Mind” alongside preorders for the new album.
Just over a year after the release of their acclaimed Second Edition LP, GYGAX returns with their third, and most triumphant album to date, High Fantasy. The band’s fantastic storylines come blazing to life in the nine brand new tracks on the new LP, which surges with powerful riffs, killer harmonization, and unavoidable hooks from beginning to end.
High Fantasy was recorded live in The Captain’s Quarters Studios in GYGAX‘s hometown of Ventura, California, with former guitar player Armand Tambouris at the helm. As with their prior album, the High Fantasy artwork was completed by Fares Maese, who is also a renowned artist through his works in the gaming community, including Warhammer, Pathfinder, and more.
