This week we head to Germany to explore a source of regular output on the metal scene there, Mob Rules. Their new album is Tales From Beyond, and will be a welcome addition to the collection of any Iron Maiden fan. You can order the new album here.
Next up is some exciting news involving Roine Stole and Jon Anderson. Here is what they had to say about Invention of Knowledge out on June 24th.
Legendary Yes vocalist & singer / songwriter, and prog veteran Roine Stolt (The Flower Kings) have joined forces for the Anderson / Stolt album ‘Invention Of Knowledge’ out 24th June 2016.
Jon Anderson had this to say: “…..Music is always the driving force in my life…working with such a wonderful musician as Roine Stolt made the creation of this album very unique,we are very excited with the release of ‘Invention of Knowledge’.“
Roine Stolt adds: “It is not aiming at being new Yes music; just new music, modern and classical, rock and ethno, tribal and orchestrated, grooving and floating. Hopefully in the true spirit of “progressive” – leaning forward, surprising and also comforting with familiar run-arounds.
We’ve been “inventing” as we go along – Jon is an endless source of new ideas. We’ve been bouncing ideas back and forth for months and as a result there are probably dozens of versions of these songs. It’s been a very interesting and rewarding time and the result is just insanely detailed.
We’ll of course have music and order details as soon as they are available.
