Award Winning Atlanta, Georgia Progressive Metallers HALCYON WAY have confirmed an August 19 North American release date and an August 23 European release date for their new album Conquer. The album will be released on Nightmare Records in North America and via Massacre Records in Europe. The artwork and track listing for Conquer have now been unveiled.
Singer Steve Braun commented on the new album:
"We are super stoked about how this entire album has come out, from music down to the artwork. Once again our good friend Travis Smith has taken our basic artwork concept and made it into a masterpiece. The artwork visually shows the struggles we as a band have faced and how it could have destroyed us, yet at the same time shows how we've emerged from the rubble as a solid unit ready to conquer ANY obstacle in our way. For us we raised the bar with Building the Towers back in 2010, and with the new album Conquer we've surpassed our wildest dreams."

HALCYON WAY was founded in 2001 and released its successful debut album "A Manifesto For Domination" in 2008 (via Nightmare Records).
HALCYON WAY's sound cannot be neatly slotted into any sub-category of metal; but it can be described as heavy, catchy, technical, and above all, focused on mature song craft. The band draws influences & inspiration from many metal bands from Megadeth to Dream Theater, Testament or Chimaira. The focus of the songwriting is on catchy hooks, vocal harmonies à la King's X or Stryper, and on heavy, technical, but ultimately accessible instrumentation.
