Nad Sylvan releases Martyr video

Nad Sylvan has released a video for his track Where The Martyr Carved His Name.

It features on the Steve Hackett collaborator’s solo album Courting The Widow, launched last year via Century Media.

Sylvan says: “The most interesting aspect of prog-rock, is that you’re never safe – not musically or lyrically. This is where funk, soul, rock, symphony and musical get new life in the prog melting pot.”

The singer is joined on the album by a variety of artists including Hackett, Nick Beggs, Roger King, Roine Stolt and Jonas Reingold.

Last month, the singer revealed his ‘Vampirate’ stage persona came about as the result of an off-the-cuff remark from a friend.

Sylvan features in the latest issue of Prog, out now in print, digital and via TeamRock+.
