Critically acclaimed San Francisco Bay Area dark ambient collective AMBER ASYLUM have inked a deal with Prophecy Productions for the rerelease the band's entire back catalogue as well as three further albums. The follow-up to 2009's "Bitter River" is currently being recorded and will most likely be released in 2013, alongside the new editions of the earlier albums.

Commented AMBER ASYLUM's Kris Force: "I am very pleased to come aboard Prophecy with the entire back catalogue. It is AMBER ASYLUM's personal singularity and the end to a long journey home.

"I hope to devote more time to the craft of actual music making and production while trusting the amazing team at Prophecy Productions to bring it to the world.

"On behalf of the entire collective of AMBER ASYLUM, we move forward with enthusiasm and gratitude."

According to a press release, "AMBER ASYLUM have been forging a style which is hard to pinpoint, described by multi-instrumentalist Kris Force, the artistic leader of a shifting pool of studio and live-musicians, as a mixture between neoclassic and dark ambient with hints at neofolk, industrial and doom metal. Right from the beginning, sinister string-arrangements and female vocals in combination with dragging rhythms of the hypnotic kind have been the main characteristics of AMBER ASYLUM, which, according to the band, tackle the core of being and achieve a cathartic effect."
