Switzerland's SAMAEL will be issuing a new single, "Telepath", prior to the release of their forthcoming full-length CD, "Reign of Light", which is expected to arrive in October. The complete track listing for the single is as follows:
03. Telepathic (remix)
04. Inch'Allah (karaoke version)
05. Telepathic (instrumental version)
A "Reign of Light" "pre-listening" session for the media reportedly took place on August 10 at the HR Giger museum in Switzerland. The album, which will be released through the band's own label, Galactical Recordings, with exclusive licenses to Regain Records (whole world except Switzerland and USA), and Musikvertreib (Switzerland), was mixed at two different studios in Switzerland and was co-produced by Waldemar Sorychta (GRIP INC., LACUNA COIL, TIAMAT), who has worked with the group on most of their previous efforts. Mixing duties were handled by Stephan Glaumann (BON JOVI, RAMMSTEIN) in Stockholm, Sweden. Other tracks set to appear on the CD include "Oriental Dawn", "As The Sun", "High Above", "Heliopolis" and "Further". A U.S. licensing deal has yet to be announced.
SAMAEL fulfilled their contractual obligations to longtime label Century Media Records with the delivery of the "Era One" and "Lesson In Magic #1 by Samaël" projects, which were completed in September 2002 and summer 2003, respectively.
