Yuval Kramer, producer and guitarist for Israeli Prog-Metal band AMASEFFER, announces the approach of a new project - ’Reign of the Architect’; a new sci-fi saga, featuring some well-known guest musicians and vocalists, as well as introducing fresh, new talents.
‘Reign of the Architect’ is an international collaboration started by Mauricio Bustamante, Mexican drummer, and Yuval Kramer himself. It has been in production for the last 4 years. In 2010, Mauricio joined Yuval in Jerusalem, Israel, to finally begin recording their mutual effort.
The story, which the band has yet to reveal, will unfold over the course of 2 albums. The first part to be released in early 2012; “A fit year for an ending of a tale,” they say.
Joining Mauricio (drums) and Yuval (guitars), are Israeli vocalists: Yotam Avni (Prey for Nothing), Tom Gefen, Davidavi (Vidi) Dolev, Adva Kramer and Grace Hannah Woolf.
As previously mentioned, the album will also include guest appearances by some well-known artists, such as: vocalist Jeff Scott Soto (Yingwie Malemsteen, Journey, etc.), bassist Mike LePond (Symphony X), keyboardist Joost Van Der Brooek (Areyon, Star One, etc.), bassist Kyle Honea and more.
“Even though we had the chance to collaborate with some of our favorite musicians out there,” Mauricio and Yuval ask to add, “we wanted to introduce fresh and unknown artists, both instrumentalists and vocalists, to the world. Artists we can guarantee will blow your mind!”.
At the moment, the band’s debut (title has yet to be revealed) is being meticulously and painstakingly mixed. All of the tracks feature a plentitude of layers consisting, among others, multiple guitar and vocal layers, and multitudes of orchestral and exotic instruments.
The band is currently in negotiations with a few record labels in hopes to have exciting news in the near future.
