The concept behind the new album is about finding meaning in a seemingly meaningless world! using ideas from Greek mythology and mysticism the music takes the listener on a voyage of our inner selves to take us from darkness to light. The centrepiece is an epic 23-minute suite entitled Scenes from the Subconcious Mind. The suite is a journey through dreams and nightmares to a place of peace in the form of the acoustic composition Arcadia.
As with it's predecessor, last year's Cycles Of Behaviour, the album features contributions from Lifesigns/Strawbs/Iona guitarist Dave Bainbridge, bassist Tim Harries (Bill Bruford, Steeleye Span) and vocalist Caroline Bonnett, who once again has co-produced and mastered the new album.
The album will be available primarily from Nick's website as both a physical CD and as a hi-res 24bit download.
