“Our second strike is complete,” reveals guitar player Victor Smolski and explains, that “»Kingslayer« is the logical follow-up to »Tsar«, just more compact, heavier and faster. The experience now under our belts gained from our many live experiences, including the two tours and festivals, has been fully implemented in the studio. The band have grown closer and stronger, you can feel this unified energy within the new tracks. We took a lot of time and gave our very best. »Kingslayer« is a crafted metal album with a lively power sound!”
ALMANAC recently played at the Masters of Rock Festival, where they debuted the first two new tracks live, ‘Losing My Mind’ and ‘Children Of The Sacred Path’. The concert was filmed and will be part of a bonus live DVD, which will accompany the limited first edition of »Kingslayer«.
