16:50 - Zaphod True that, all of their albums are pretty solid.
16:46 - Frodd yep, their average is better than most. babel's tower is the album's best, seeds of tyrants is the weakest.
16:44 - Zaphod Typical of them is good enough for me. I liked the first song they released (think it was the title track) but the second one was really boring. And I also listened to Babel's Tower which was great.
16:41 - Frodd definitely yes. there's a weak song or two, a very good song or two, and the rest is typical of them
16:38 - Zaphod I should give this new Primordial thing a spin.
The new Vanden Plas album The Seraphic Clockwork will be released on the 4th of June 2010 by Frontiers Records. The 8 songs were recorded at Bazement Studio by engineer Markus Teske and produced by the band.
The story of the concept album was written by Andy Kuntz and tells about a journey in time. The protagonist, who lives in 16th century Rome, comes under the spell of an Old Testament prophecy. He travels back to Jerusalem in the year 33 Anno Domini where he must face his God-given destiny.
Stephan Lill states about the new album: "I think that my preference for heavier bands shines through more than ever before. Heavy riffs, elaborate keyboard and orchestra arrangements plus catchy hook lines come together in a perfect symbiosis which marks Vanden Plas' characteristic style. I feel that we were much more adventurous on The Seraphic Clockwork than ever before."
