Germany’s progressive metallers ASSIGNMENT have signed a two album deal with Mausoleum Records. The group’s debut album, “Inside Of The Machine“, is scheduled for a release this summer. The new album is a conceptual masterpiece including ROBIN BECK, MICHAEL BORMANN (ex-Jaded Heart, Bonfire), MATS LEVEN (ex-Malmsteen, Addagio), & CARSTEN KAISER (ex-Angel Dust) on vocals.
ASSIGNMENT are: Goran Panic (guitars), Gert Sprick (keyboards), Heiko Maag (bass), & Sven Pollkötter (drums).
Already combining various influences like Queensryche & Fates Warning, but also adding segments in the styles of Ayreon or early Pain of Salvation, the band is hoping to secure a permanent record deal in the near future. Fans can expect hard-edged riffs, catchy hooks, & unexpected turnovers in more than 70 minutes running time – including a special BONUS TRACK cover-version of Meat Loaf’s “Nowhere Fast” & special guest appearance of Bernie Versailles (Redemption) on lead guitar.
ASSIGNMENT stands for music without boundaries, as our musical influences are spread over the whole Rock & Metal genre. From Death Metal to Progressive Rock but having always the focus on the melodies and arrangements. Therefore, we call our style ART METAL!
