First single Haven Of Echoes online!

  26-06-2024     Comments (0)

First single Haven Of Echoes online! Online now: ' Assimilation ', the first single from the new Haven Of Echoes album 'Memento Vivere'. Haven of Echoes is the collaboration between critically acclaimed musicians Paul Sadler (Spires/solo) and Andreas Hack (Frequency Drift). Paul Sadler about the song: "Assimilation is perhaps the most complete example of what people can expect to find on the album, in the sense that it features an extremely catchy and relatively straight forward chorus, surrounded by progressive elements such as odd signatures and unusual instrumentation. It could therefore perhaps be seen as a microcosm of the album as a whole. Musically, the track floats between nostalgic melancholia and a cautious optimism, which is something I wanted to reflect lyrically. The song, and the album as a whole, deals with our own...

New single For All We Know

  18-03-2024     Comments (0)

New single For All We Know ' All We Did Was Hide ' is the third single from Ruud Jolie's latest album with For All We Know , titled 'By Design Or By Disaster'. Scheduled for release on March 22nd, this album showcases the talents of Wudstik on vocals, Kristoffer Gildenlöw on bass, Leo Margarit on drums, Marco Kuypers on piano, and, of course, Ruud Jolie on guitar. ‘All We Did Was Hide’ is a song about letting go. Letting go of a child that is growing up and slowly starting to explore the world on his own. Or about letting go of your younger self. And maybe this song is also about not having had the guts to make changes in your life only to realise you regret this when it’s too late… Check out the visualiser here. The album will be available on Digi CD, as well as two distinctively...

Inhalo supports Cyan in De Nieuwe Pul, Uden

  21-02-2024     Comments (0)

Inhalo supports Cyan in De Nieuwe Pul, Uden INHALO has been added as the support act for Cyan on Sunday, May 12th! Cyan, the prog supergroup featuring members of Magenta, Camel, The Tangent, and Karnataka, was one of the highlights at last year's Night of the Prog Festival - Loreley Amphitheater in Germany.  Meer info & tickets: Cyan was officially founded by Rob Reed in the early 1990s, prior to his involvement with Magenta. Reed then released three albums with Cyan and the group was more or less put to rest until Reed decided to revive the band a few years ago. Reed surrounded himself with excellent players: guitarist Luke Machin (The Tangent, Karnataka) and bassist Dan Nelson (Magenta). But what really sets this band apart from Reed's other work is the addition of Peter Jones (Camel, Tiger Moth Tales) on vocals. For...
