Exlibris, one of the best heavy metal bands from Poland, is currently working on the new material for their third studio album. The band plan to enter ZED Studio in August to release the abum in late Autumn release via Metal Mind Productions.
Exlibris: “We are still working on some of the songs but so far it sound pretty awesome! Fans should expect a familiar emphasis on good melodies as well as some new stuff. How about that?“
“Humagination”, is their last studio album from 2013. Combining the energy of traditional heavy metal and hard rock with melodic hooks and complex arrangements since the end of 2003, Exlibris stands for rockin’ guitars, distinct rhythms, epic orchestrations and powerful lead vocals. The band’s sophomore release “Humagination” features 12 songs with fresh melodic heavy metal ideas, 3 guest appearances, stellar production, world-class vocals and catchy melodies – it’s an ideal album that should appeal to fans of Dream Theater, Iron Maiden and Masterplan… The album was recorded in March 2013 and it was produced by Mariusz Konik and Robert Wawro from HZ Studio. The mix and mastering was done by Tomasz Zalewski in ZED Studio.
The band was formed in late 2003 by Daniel Lechmański and Piotr Sikora. Their first studio album “Skyward” from 2006 received quite good reviews. Over the next few years, the bands struggled with line-up changes within the rhythm section, but continued to create music and to play occasional concerts. In the meantime, Daniel Lechmański joined Chain Reaction and recorded three albums with them. Also, Piotr Sikora is a member of Leash Eye since 2009. In January 2012 the band started to record their second album – “Humagination”. During the recording time, it turned out that their vocalist Marcin will not be able to complete the recordings. Krzysztof Sokołowski aka Mistress of the Night became their new frontman. As a result, the recordings ended in early 2013. Their next yet untitled record is scheduled for release in late Autumn 2014.
