Journal are a progressive metal band who released a stellar album in Unlorja, an 80-minute concept record that was filled with so much great music that it’s actually held me over for a couple years. However, recently I’d begun to wonder if the band were even still around, or if they had disbanded. Luckily for me, they’re still together, and are currently in the process of writing/demoing new material for their new album! Hear a snippet after the jump.
This sounds like it’ll be another awesome progressive odyssey. No word on whether or not it will be a concept album or not, just hopefully it is. We’ll have more info as we get it! In the meantime, check out their other music if you haven’t already.
