German progressive metal band Assignment have released an album teaser for their new album Closing The Circle. The record will be the first to feature new singer Diego Valdez as lead vocalist. Further details about the release are expected to be inbound in the near future, but in the meantime checkout their new track Crimson Poison and the LP trailer.
Press about the band says: – “Assignment stands for music without boundaries, as their influences are spread across the full panoply of Rock & Metal music: from Death Metal to Progressive Rock, but with the melody and arrangement of the songs always foremost in mind. Assignment therefore unabashedly calls their unique brand of music: Art Metal! “
“If comparisons must be made for the sake of identification, then think of Assignment as having combined such diverse influences as Queensrÿche & Fates Warning, with stylistic nods to Ayreon or early Pain of Salvation. In addition the hard-edged riffs, memorable hooks and skilful arrangements result in a personal musical style of which the whole is greater and vastly more impressive than the sum of its individual influences.”
