US progressive power metal band, Armory, has officially announced that they are in the studio recording their second album. The album, entitled Empyrean Realms, will contain nine original songs. Compared to their debut album, The Dawn Of Enlightenment, Empyrean Realms is described by the band as having "more dynamic composing and arranging, with more colorful melodies, head-banging riffs, and progressive elements. The lyrics are also more articulate, centering on the themes of metaphysics, cosmology, and the power of human will. Cover artwork has been chosen which will enhance the cosmic scope of the album."

Empyrean Realms will be engineered by the band themselves and take place at Mystic Star Studio, based in Townsend, Massachusetts. The expected release date is mid-to-late 2010. On their official website and MySpace page Armory has posted a video compilation of the drum and guitar tracking to give fans a sneak preview of what their second album has in store.

Armory will also appear on two official tribute albums, due early 2010. A cover of the song "Where The Rain Grows" will be featured on HelloRay - A tribute to Helloween & Gamma Ray, to be released through Epicus Records. A cover of the song "Love Is Pain" will be featured on By The Gods: A Noble Tribute To Virgin Steele. Both cover songs have been posted on Armory's MySpace page.

The Helloween cover is a damn sight better than Helloween's acoustic 25 year album.

The lyrics are also more articulate, centering on the themes of metaphysics, cosmology, and the power of human will.

This band seems like a no-nonsense, smart band if that's the case. I want to check them out.
