Tellus Requiem at it again? Seems there’s a new album in the make

Remember Tellus Requiem? Their first selftitled album was really really awesome, although it was self released, still is one of my favs.

Invictus the 11th hour was released by Nightmare and is also great, but has new vocalist who is not half original and sounds really POLISHED.

And now here seems to be the follow up coming.

Enjoy….

Thought Chamber present first song from new album

The Prog Magazine was chosen to present Transcend, a nine-minute epic song from the new upcoming Thought Chamber album Psykerion. Hear it below.

Vocalist Ted Leonard, now with Spock’s Beard, has reunited with multi-instrumentalist Michael Harris for the long-awaited follow-up to debut album Angular Perceptions. They’re joined by bassist Jeff Plant, keyboardist Bill Jenkins and drummer Mike Haid on the 16-track title.

Harris tells¬†Prog Magazine: ‚ÄúTranscend kind of epitomises what Thought Chamber does: lots of melody, while getting our chops in, and we exploit a lot of styles in it, from metal to acoustic to fusion.‚ÄĚ

He says of the lyrics: ‚ÄúAvakus‚Äô mind has been awakened and inspired by his voyage to Psykerion, and he gets philosophical about what makes humans tick, from instinct to ego to the drive to succeed.‚ÄĚ

Psykerion is released on September 16 via InsideOut.
