Second album Paralyzed came three years ago, and in this month the third album The Way Through will be released. The lyric is based on a story from Guy Manning (Damanek, UPF, Ex-The Tangent). The album is about a patient in intensive care caught between life and death.
The new album offers the complex melodies and progressive instrumental arrangements for which they have become known and has been produced and composed by Marek Arnold on keys and saxophones with Denis Strassburg on bass and Manuel Schmid on vocals and keys (Star Combo Meissen). Larry Brödel on vocal (Toxic Smile), Ralf Dietsch on guitars, Clemens Litschko on drums and other guests. Martin Schnella from Flaming Row completed the final mix.
