Metal Blade recording artists Redemption, from Los Angeles, is one of the leading progressive metal bands in the world today. Formed in Los Angeles, California in 2000 by guitarist / keyboardist / songwriter Nicolas van Dyk, the band features iconic vocalist Thomas England of Evergrey and the phenomenal rhythm section of Chris Quirarte (drums) and Sean Andrews (bass), as well as guitar work from the legendary Chris Poland (Megadeth, oHM) and Simone Mularoni (DGM).

First gaining notoriety with their sophomore release, 2005’s The Fullness of Time (which featured former vocalist Ray Alder of Fates Warning), the band released their third CD, The Origins of Ruin, in 2007 and followed with a tour of the US in support of progressive metal icons Dream Theater. They followed this up with a live CD/DVD of their performance at the Progpower festival, Frozen in the Moment, in 2008. In 2009 they released Snowfall on Judgment Day (which included a guest vocal performance from James LaBrie of Dream Theater), followed by 2011’s This Mortal Coil, after which they toured Europe for the first time and released their second live CD/DVD, Live from the Pit, in 2013. 2016 saw the release of The Art of Loss, the band’s first album for Metal Blade records, which features not only Chris Poland but also guitarists Marty Friedman and Chris Broderick, as well as guest performance from John Bush of Armored Saint. Following the departure of Alder in early 2017, the band joined forces with the formidable voice of Englund, and is set to release its seventh studio CD, Long Night’s Journey into Day, in 2018. The band will co-headline the 2018 edition of the Progpower festival in Atlanta, GA.

Combining unapologetic melodies and hooks with technicality, complexity and thundering riffs, the band occupies a unique place with its powerful, heavy, intelligent and deeply emotional music. With its new vocalist and a new album, the band is thrilled to be bringing new music to you next year!
