DELIVERANCE has issued the following update
"The new album, 'As Above - So Below', is near completed! I believe this is an incredible CD, and you will want it!!! The sound of this record is what the big question is... Let's just say this. You WON'T be disappointed! Old and new fans will dig it!".
According to a press release, "As Above - So Below" is "a prayer that things would be on earth, as they are in heaven. Musically, this 13th album represents a unilateral step forward in the heavy music genre; few groups have ever blended epic thrash / speed metal with the elegance and beauty of progressive metal (later period DELIVERANCE) with such devastating skill and brutality. Never has a DELIVERANCE album alternated so many moments of beauty (e.g. 'The Omen'-inspired opening track) with beastly moments of metallic fury and spine snapping riffs that would seem right at home on a SLAYER, BELIEVER, or early DELIVERANCE album. The end result is arguably the heaviest DELIVERANCE album yet. Jimmy [P. Brown II] continues to deliver vocal melodies that are as commanding as a thundering voice from above. What no one could have anticipated is that the band would deliver one of the most enormous-sounding metal records ever made. In our minds, it seems like the album is a piece of heaven here on earth, which, ironically means that the album is an answer to its own prayer!"
