After a robust crowdfunding campaign, Cincinnati, Ohio steampunk power metal band AUTOMATON will release their debut album “A Bold New Horizon” independently in the USA on March 21 as a digipak cd and worldwide through digital distribution sites such as Itunes, Amazon, Spotify and Bandcamp.
The album was recorded, engineered and mixed by Kevin Brown, and mastered by Tony Lindgren (Angra, Paradise Lost) at the prestigious metal studio Fascination Street in Sweden.
Spanning their retro-futuristic industrial adventure, the musicians are characters who prepare for conflict in an aggressive new wave of traditional metal sound mixed with folk metal spirit. The album includes cinematic audio from Baltimore, MD steampunk group The Clockwork Dolls, as well as guest vocals by Alvadar from Winterhymn (Paganfest USA 2014 touring band). Guest voice acting by whimsical pirate impersonators Band of Pirates and vivacious steampunk community event mixologists Calamity Labs.
The album cover was created by world-reknowned Michigan steampunk painter Myke Amend. .
Automaton has made their new single “Hot Off The Press” available for pay your price download via their bandcamp website.
