Nightmare Records has set an April 25 release date for the long-awaited third album from Utah-based progressive/power metallers KATAGORY V, entitled "The Rising Anger".In the last few months, KATAGORY V have been busy performing live (including the recent Monsters of Metal show with HELSTAR and AGENT STEEL) and finalizing details concerning the new album. According to bassist Dustin Mitchell, the band are excited to see the light at the end of the long two-year tunnel. "We've worked extremely hard the last two years on making sure this album was done properly — from writing it to recording it — and with the help of Nightmare Records, we anticipate this release to be the album metal fans around the world have been wanting to hear since the very beginning, especially for fans of KATAGORY V who have followed us since the early days," he said. "We are certain they will not be disappointed!" He continues, "This is the album we've wanted to do since day one, and it's amazing to hear the final results and be 100% happy with how it has turned out. Granted, we feel the process for getting this album complete took far longer than it should have. However, we're extremely excited to see it come full circle now and we anticipate this album to be well worth the wait." The band currently has no plans to perform live until after the new album is released, but they have hinted at the planning of a possible CD release party to coincide with the release. It hasn't been made clear at this time whether it will strictly be a listening/release party or if they will perform live. More details to come soon.
