Archon Angel will release their second album, the appropriately entitled ‘II’, on 14th April via Frontiers Music Srl. It follows their 2020 debut, ‘Fallen’, which saw vocalist Zak Stevens (Circle II Circle, Savatage, Trans-Siberian Orchestra) and producer/guitarist Aldo Lonobile (Secret Sphere, Edge Of Forever) deliver a fantastic slab of power/progressive metal.

Fans of their debut will find that no sophomore slump awaits them on ‘II’, with the duo honing in on all the key parts that worked so well before, amplifying and perfecting them for this glorious follow-up. A first single and video from the new record for the song ‘Fortress’ is available now.

The seeds of Archon Angel were planted when Stevens and Lonobile were collaborating on songs for Timo Tolkki’s Avalon project (also released via Frontiers). The latter had recorded demos that were a little reminiscent of classic late 80s/early 90s Savatage and the two discussed them and felt they were onto something. This ultimately culminated in ‘Fallen’.

Zak Stevens had come to prominence as lead vocalist for Savatage, of course, a tenure that began with ‘Edge Of Thorns’ (1993) and would last for four albums. He has also performed on multiple releases by Trans-Siberian Orchestra releases and been a member of the band’s touring production. The early ’00’s saw him form Circle II Circle, who have issued seven albums, while he has also appeared on albums by the likes of Machines Of Grace and Jon Olivia’s Pain.
