Reunited North Carolina-based progressive metallers CONFESSOR have uploaded an audio sample of a new song, entitled "Wig Stand", on the "Sounds" page of their official web site.
"Wig Stand" is the first video from the group's upcoming full-length album, "Unraveled", due this fall via Season of Mist.
As previously reported, CONFESSOR have scheduled a CD-release party for "Unraveled" on September 17 at The Lincoln Theatre in Raleigh, NC. Also appearing on the bill will be ALABAMA THUNDERPUSSY and SOULPREACHER. A live CONFESSOR DVD will be shot in Oslo, Norway at the end of September.
"Unraveled" was produced by Dick Hodgin (ex-CORROSION OF CONFORMITY producer) and is "a wonderful representation of the classic CONFESSOR twisted guitar riffing and complex drumming, meshed with some more straightforward parts and a toned down and very melodic vocal approach," according to vocalist Scott Jeffreys. "We feel that the new album will certainly appeal to the old-school CONFESSOR fans and also will attract a brand new fan base who might not have heard us when we were together before."
CONFESSOR split up in the early '90s after releasing one full-length album (1991's "Condemned") and EP (1992's "Confessor"), with the with the rhythm section going on to form FLY MACHINE. CONFESSOR reformed in 2002 following the death of guitarist Ivan Colon, who passed away due to cardiac complications.
