Utah-based progressive/power metal band KATAGORY V have completed work on their third album, "The Rising Anger", tentatively due later in the year.Commented bassist Dustin Mitchell: "It feels like it took a lifetime to record this thing! It's also a great feeling to see light at the end of the tunnel now. Everyone in the band is breathing easy and very excited about the album being done. 'The Rising Anger' has technically been complete just after we performed at Powerfest in Chicago in April, which is when we actually finished tracking everything to tape in the studio, however…. It took much longer than we thought to have the album mixed. "Curtis and the rest of us wanted to make sure that the album was 110% done, and spent long hours fine-tuning things during the mixing process. We wanted this album to come out as soon as possible, but decided not until everything was sounding prefect, so this is why it took much longer than we had planned. I personally can say, after hearing the final mix… It is a huge step forward for KATAGORY V and it was well worth the wait! Now we just have to get this thing released! "….So, as proof that the new album is done, we have provided you all with a few small downloadable morsels for your ears. It was actually difficult for us to pick a few short pieces, since there is so much for you to hear, but the song clips we have proved should give you an idea of what to expect. We know it's not much right now, but we hope it will tide you over until the album is actually released! Until then, check out the sound clips and tell us what you think of 'The Rising Anger' so far!" Check out the audio clips at www.katagory5.com.
