DARKOLOGY, the Texas-based band featuring guitarist Michael Harris (VITALIJ KUPRIJ), drummer Brian Harris (ex-FIREWIND), bassist Mike Neal and vocalist Kelly "Sundown" Carpenter (FIREWIND, BEYOND TWILIGHT, OUTWORLD), will release its sophomore album, "Fated To Burn" June 15th, 2015. The follow-up to 2009's "Altered Reflections" was mixed and mastered by legendary producer Chris Tsangarides (JUDAS PRIEST, ANVIL, THIN LIZZY) at his studio in the U.K.

"This album is a tribute to the old school and it’s our hope that what we've done here will remind the listener why they got into metal in the first place," says the band.

"Fated To Burn" is filled with great songwriting, powerhouse performances and amazing vocals courtesy of Carpenter, who has recently been seen tearing it up across the world stages with FIREWIND. Likewise, the amazing Harris brothers have again put their indelible stamp on these songs. Michael, arguably one of the best guitarists in metal and beyond, brings the killer riffs, solos and big atmosphere as Brian, his younger brother, punishes the skins like there's no tomorrow. Finally, the always-dynamic and melodic Mike Neal (BLACK WIDOW, MEDIEVAL STEEL, SALEM'S LOT) has not only played some mean bass and done a lot of backing vocals but has also written most of the lyrics on this album, proving this to be a total group effort.

The CD's eleven songs seem to cover everything, from almost cinematic run-throughs with prisoners on death-row who refuse to die, witches from beyond the grave calling to the living, robot rebellions being put down by mankind and vampires just being the nocturnal terrors they are meant to be, through to fear about dystopian future social developments (with the group not forgetting to take a critical stance towards how religion manipulates the masses), cosmic supernovas and everything in-between.

Rainer Kalwitz, the illustrator for bands such as SHADOW GALLERY, DARE, PRAYING MANTIS and more, has provided DARKOLOGY with an eye-catching and very fitting cover painting.
"Fated To Burn" track listing:

An enthusiastic Chris Tsangarides exclaims "As I was mixing the album the songs were coming alive, I was thinking wow this is good…. this is VERY good ! (laughs) This happened dozens of times ! It's rather rare in this day and age, that you get an album that's all killer and no filler and I am not using that expression lightly. “Fated To Burn” is a must have album....It's an aural assault of all senses with plenty of melody and bombast for the most discerning Metal-heads! Get it Now ! "

The band recently concluded a highly successful tour with Overkill, Prong and Enforcer with all reviews that have poured in, being extremely flattering.
