Hi there,

I've been waiting to share the news about the other September release on my little label
Generation Prog Records with you. I'm really glad to be working with the Austrian octet
Circle of Illusion on their debut album Jeremias - Foreshadow of Forgotten Realms:



Jeremias is an epic concept album four years in the making. The band really filled the
CD to the brim (80 minutes!) and added an elaborate 36-page booklet on top of that.
The music is best described as symphonic progressive rock with some heavier parts
here and there - I always tend to say it sounds a bit like Neal Morse's more symphonic
compositions with a bit of a DT edge (some parts also remind me of Haken). I don't
like hyperbole, but I think quite a few people will be positively shocked by the quality. :)

But as usual, don't just take my word for it - we've put together a nice trailer for you:


It will be released September 9, 2013. Until then, enjoy these samples! :)


All the best,
Michael

Keyboardist Gerald Peter just uploaded a video in which he shows how he handles the complex and layered keyboard parts of the album live, check it out - some impressive playing there:


Before anyone asks, obviously Gerald is playing along to simple MIDI versions of the tracks here, not the final tracks from the album.
