Multinational symphonic prog metal band REIGN OF THE ARCHITECT has set “Rise” as the title of its debut album, tentatively due in early 2012. Yuval Kramer‘s (AMASEFFER) brand new sci-fi project will feature guest appearances by Mike LePond (SYMPHONY X), Jeff Scott Soto (YNGWIE MALEMSTEEN, JOURNEY) and Joost van den Broek (AYREON), among others.
REIGN OF THE ARCHITECT was formed in 2007 as a collaboration between Kramer and Mexican drummer Mauricio Bustamante. In 2010, Mauricio joined Yuval in Jerusalem, Israel to finally begin recording their debut effort.
The story, which the band has yet to reveal, will unfold over the course of two albums.
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.
“Even though we had the chance to collaborate with some of our favorite musicians out there,” Mauricio and Yuval state, “we wanted to introduce fresh and unknown artists, both instrumentalists and vocalists, to the world. Artists we can guarantee will blow your mind!”
REIGN OF THE ARCHITECT‘s debut CD will feature “a plentitude of layers consisting, among others, multiple guitar and vocal layers, and multitudes of orchestral and exotic instruments,” according to a press release.
