Laserís Edge signs Germanyís Eloy for 40th Anniversary Release

Ken Golden, President of Laserís Edge Group, announces the addition of historic German Progressive Rock band Eloy to the Laserís Edge label.

Laserís Edge Records will exclusively release Visionary in North America, the bandís first studio album in over 10 years, on January 12, 2010.  Visionary celebrates the 40th Anniversary of Eloy, Germanyís most successful and prized progressive rock group.

Eloy was formed in 1969 by Hanover guitarist Frank Bornemann.   The band has released numerous albums but are best known for 1977ís Ocean, which remains its best selling album.  Although Eloy have not been active as a band since 1998, the demand for their music is still remarkable. Their work has had a significant impact on the history of rock, and many a journalist, as well as numerous fans, consider them to be one of the best progressive rock bands ever.

The bandís music continues to be rediscovered. It fascinates and touches many fans with its emotional, complex symphonic rock-music with atmospheric sound creations, pulsating rhythms and massive guitars, combined with lyrics which escape irrelevance, performed in a way to transport the listener to another world.

The strong feedback from all parts of the world eventually reached the musicians themselves. It encouraged Bornemann, lead singer, guitarist and producer of ELOY, to bring the band together again for a 40th anniversary reunion. After a break of eleven years, they have launched the new album Visionary, which recaptures the spirit of the early years.

A highly expected release. Guess the hardcore fans will order it from Eloy's website in November though - but should be a good selling album for LE. Probably for a rather long period of time too :-)

Good signing.

Eloy have uploaded a radio edit of one of the tracks from the forthcoming album to their MySpace page now. Just in case anyone might be interested in this little tidbit :-)

Shocked  although some Eloy flavour is recognizable it sounds not very proggy at a first glance ...

I saw the announcement of new album at my local prog supplier and the price is about 30 euro - if the music is just bunch of remixes like this, this is way too expensive
yet you still have time!

I think the new song is nice, not very proggy, but the Eloy feeling is there ;) It reminds me to one of the pert of the Answer albums Reflections From The Spheres Beyond song, I love that album ;)
