Norwegian melodic metallers CYCLOPHONIA have revealed the cover art for their forthcoming debut album, "Impact Is Imminent", tentatively due in early 2012 via an as-yet-undetermined record label.
Commented the band: "Our brand of metal is built around the principle of great guitar riffs, neck-breaking dual-guitar melodies, equally neck-breaking and soaring vocal lines; all backed by some massive and groovy bass and drums.
"We are sick and tired of the trend where melodic metal is pussified beyond belief by insipid, washed-out third-generation copies of those who once pioneered the genre. Metal is a versatile beast and it can appear in many forms, but at its core should always be an attitude born from hunger, rage and a desire to unleash and just wreck everything in sight! Thus we declare our mission statement: We have come to this planet to kick your fucking nuts to pieces!!"
A YouTube teaser containing rough-mix samples of a few tracks from "Impact Is Imminent" can be found below.
