Redemption debuts on Billboard charts for new album, ‘The Art of Loss’

DESTRUCTION - Thrash Anthems II

Los Angeles-based prog-metal outfit Redemption – featuring Nick van Dyk, Ray Alder (Fates Warning, Engine), Sean Andrews, and Chris Quirarte (as well as guitarist Bernie Versailles, who is presently on an indefinite medical hiatus) – recently released their sixth full-length, The Art of Loss, via Metal Blade Records worldwide. For their efforts, The Art of Loss has debuted at #63 on Billboard’s Top Hard Music Albums chart, plus #52 on Billboard’s Independent Albums chart. In Canada, the album landed at #88 on the Hard Music Charts.

Containing over 70 minutes of their unique blend of passion, melody, aggression and complexity, The Art of Loss was produced once again by Tommy Hansen (Helloween, Pagan’s Mind, Pretty Maids, etc.), who worked with the band on 2009’s Snowfall on Judgment Day. The cover artwork was also created by long-time Redemption collaborator Travis Smith (Opeth, Amorphis). Musically, The Art of Loss follows its predecessor (2011’s This Mortal Coil), but their newest work finds composition, musicianship and production taken up another notch, with an array of songs ranging from hard-hitting melodic metal to the 23-minute epic “At Day’s End”– plus, special guest appearances from Chris Broderick, John Bush, Marty Friedman, Simone Mularoni and Chris Poland. See below for the official track-listing!

“…the wait was definitely worth it…the band still belts out a superb shred assault…”Revolver Magazine

“‘The Art of Loss‘ maintains the heavy riffs and driving rhythms of ‘This Mortal Coil‘, but returns the focus to the classy progressive metal that defined the band’s earlier albums. If ‘The Art of Loss‘ isn’t considered Redemption‘s best album, it’s damn near close.”SputnikMusic.com

“…from start to finish it’s a banger.”HeavyBlogIsHeavy.com
