Somehow I am involved in this. I wrote almost every vocal line and most of the lyrics (together with Daniel Z. Klein). If you listen very closely, you can also hear my voice somewhere in the backgrounds of a few songs. It's a great album and worth to check out, even if my contribution to this was more in the background and the composing.
But if you like prog in general I recommend this unbelievable stunning concept album by no other than Vivien Lalu. The vocal credits on that one go to Goran Edman as well as Björn Jansson (Tears Of Anger) and the awesome Henrik Båth (Darkwater).

Introduction to the album “And what are dreams but stories, badly told and half-forgotten? There was a time when a lot of my life consisted of dreams. Not the dreams that come at night and frighten or entertain and then are forgotten, like second-rate books you read on a plane. Not the fleeting day-dreams of idle moments, either. The dreams that come and stay if you stray too far into the realms of certain substances. The always there waking nightmares.” Author of the “Tales”. Since finding a stable home on Lion Music in 2006 with “Mirror Of Creation II -Genesis 2”. German’s based metallers Tomorrow’s Eve have gone from strength to strength thanks to the exceptionally high and original quality of their music coupled with an ultra-powerful live show that has been impressing audiences across Europe over the last 2 years.
Now, Tomorrow’s Eve are back again with a powerhouse of an album. “Tales From Serpentia”, a collage of short stories, written by a twisted mind; dark and dreadful fictions from the abyss. Musically Tomorrow’s Eve still performs progressive metal, but with an emphasis on catchy melodic vocal lines and heavy riffs. The band plays complex but always accessible songs, holding interesting details to discover over repeated listens. In short: very dark, very melodic, and very accessible.

Tomorrow's Eve

The Tower

The Tower was a special 4 track release. 2 of these tracks are giving a sneak peak at what's to come with Tales From Serpentia in 2008 The other two tracks were rerecordings of Tomorrow's Eves former albums.

The Tower (LION MUSIC / 2006) ‘The Tower’is a 4 track single containing new material and early band material re-recorded to better reflect where the band is at in 2007. It's a single to tease for the upcoming full length album. The music on ‘The Tower’ is dark and aggressive with the lyrics like episodes from 'The Twilight Zone', what also will be the concept of the bands next full length release.

01. The Tower
02. Remember

04. Not From This World

Tomorrow's Eve  

Mirror Of Creation 2 - Genesis II
(LION MUSIC / 2006)

"It is raining into my eyes. I smell the stale dirt and the rain and my own sour smell. I dreamt, and I try to remember my dream. I cannot.
I realize why my heart is hammering in my chest: I can't recall anything.
I blink..."

A story about the loss of hope, life and death, love, drama and a man without a name. Tomorrow's Eve are back and they invite you to a rollercoasterdrive, that starts, where MOC ended. A turning point?
A change of view? A change? Definitely!
