On March 4, Rock Bottom conducted an interview with British progressive metallers THRESHOLD in Hamburg, Germany. You can now listen to the chat in the YouTube clip below.
THRESHOLD‘s video for the song “Staring At The Sun” was conceived by Achim Bieler, who won a fan contest run by the band. After he submitted his original concept and was voted the winner, THRESHOLD worked with him to shoot additional footage, aiming to create an even more impressive edition of his work.
“Staring At The Sun” comes off THRESHOLD‘s ninth studio album, “March Of Progress”, which was released on August 31, 2012 via Nuclear Blast Records. The follow-up to 2007’s “Dead Reckoning” was recorded at Thin Ice Studios (DRAGONFORCE, PENDRAGON) by bandmembers Karl Groom and Richard West, with additional production at Eightspace Studio (LEAGUE OF LIGHTS, THE MORNING AFTER). Vocal duties on “March Of Progress” were performed by THRESHOLD‘s original frontman Damian Wilson (STAR ONE, HEADSPACE), who’s been back touring with the band since the release of “Dead Reckoning”.
“March Of Progress” was made available in a limited-edition digipak, including a bonus track; a standard jewel case edition; as well as in a two-vinyl edition in two different colors, one of them exclusively available via the Nuclear Blast mail order.
