TEN – Something Wicked This Way Comes (2023)

TEN - Something Wicked This Way Comes (2023) - full

UK hard rock stalwarts TEN used the downtime during the worldwide pandemic to work on not one, but two new albums. The first released, “Here Be Monsters”, landed on February 18, 2022 via Frontiers Music Srl. And now, the label is pleased to announce the second album of the two, “Something Wicked This Way Comes“, on January 20, 2023.
Following the success of the recent string of albums from “Albion” to “Illuminati”, Hughes was joined once again by guitarists Dann Rosingana, Steve Grocott and John Halliwell along with bass player Steve McKenna, keyboard maestro Darrel Treece-Birch and drummer Markus Kullman (Sinner, Glenn Hughes, Voodoo Circle) for the recording of “Something Wicked This Way Comes”.
TEN continue to raise the musical bar higher for themselves, a goal they push on every release. Stunning guitar work, rich keyboards, excellent bass and drum interplay along with Hughes’ rich vocals are the order of the day here.

“Something Wicked This Way Comes” was produced by Hughes and mixed and mastered by Dennis Ward. TEN’s longstanding professional association with Dennis has been ongoing since he mixed their 2011 album, “Stormwarning” and has always guaranteed albums with stunning sound and production.
Fans should note that there are no ties between “Something Wicked This Way Comes” and “Here Be Monsters” or anything of this nature.
The band simply crafted two high quality releases and decided to put them out separately, in a fashion not too dissimilar to what happened with their amazing first two records which were recorded one after the other in a very short period of time.
