TEN To Release Isla De Muerta In May

TEN - Isla De Muerta

British hard rock giants Ten announced that the release of their eagerly awaited 12 studio album is scheduled for May 20th 2015 via Rocktopia Records. The new album is titled Isla de Muerta and follows hot on the heels of their ground-breaking and highly lauded 2014 opus Albion. The album cover was illustrated by Gaetano Di Falco, can be viewed below.

Named after the mythical “Island Of The Dead” from Pirate legend and as the title would suggest, this time around the album has a very “piratical, seafaring” feel. In true classic Ten style, the album opens with the atmospheric “Buccaneers” instrumental and segues straight into the cinematic “Dead Men Tell No Tales”. Any fans of Ten and their expanding catalogue will not be disappointed.
