AMASEFFER, the "holy project" featuring guest appearances by Mats Levn (KRUX, ex-THERION, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN), Angela Gossow (ARCH ENEMY) and Kobi Farhi (ORPHANED LAND), has inked a deal with InsideOut Music. The group's debut album, entitled "Slaves for Life" is the first in a trilogy about the history of the people of Israel as portrayed in the Old Testament.Hanan Avramovich (guitars), Yuval Kramer (guitars) and Erez Yohanan (drums) offer a unique mixture of progressive metal and epic Middle East-influenced orchestral film score parts played by a full symphony orchestra. All lead vocals were sung by Levn. The album was recorded and mixed by Markus Teske (VANDEN PLAS, ABYDOS) and the artwork was created by Mattias Norn (EVERGREY, KAMELOT, EPICA). "Slaves for Life" will be released on June 6 in Germany, Austria, Switzerland; June 9 in the rest of Europe; and June 24 in North America. The title track, "Slaves for Life", is available for streaming on the band's official web site. According to the group, "this is the opening track from our first part of a trilogy recounting the Bible story of Moses and the Exodus from Egypt. On the first album of the trilogy we pick up the story right from the slavery period in Egypt when the new Pharaoh enslaves and oppresses the Israelites with forced labour. This is what we tried to emphasize on this song, the cruelty and ruthless power of the cold hearted Pharaoh and on the other hand the Israeli slaves desperate cry for deliverance!"
