FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NOVEMBER 6, 2017
“Imagine Sanctuary’s ‘Refuge Denied’ with a modern production, overwhelming enthusiasm and a slice of death metal, and you get an idea of what the first five song of THE OFFERING’s career provide. ‘The Offering’ is a bombshell just as Into Eternity’s debut album at that time, but already more professional and blessed with compositions with the potential of becoming genre classic. […] The term ‘power metal’ was invented for act like this one!
” – LEGACY (DE)
The self-titled debut EP of Boston-based progressive Metal outfit THE OFFERING will be released on November 10 digitally in North America. If you want to get hold of the very limited European exclusive physical release (black 180 gram vinyl with etching and the entire EP on CD), then quickly head over to CM Distro Germany HERE.
Atheist frontman Kelly Shaefer praised the group, stating: “They came blazing through my club in Florida, both beauty, and beast, super impressive! The Offering simply has it all, monster guitars, Nun tight drumming, and one of the best new vocalists to emerge in years! A perfect hybrid of classic, and modern metal. ACCEPT THE OFFERING!”
“The Offering” was produced by guitarist Nishad George with engineering help from Grammy-award-winning engineer Mark Fuller, and mixed and mastered by Andre Alvinzi and Jens Bogren at the renowned Fascination Street Studios (Arch Enemy, At The Gates, Opeth).
