POWER PROG is proud to announce the signing of one of the highest
acclaimed and best reviewed Progressive Metal bands nowadays,
Norwegian ILLUSION SUITE. Our first common goal is to release their
second album "The Iron Cemetery" at July 26, 2013.
With the strong debut album "Final Hour" in 2009 and their performance
at ProgPower USA in 2010, ILLUSION SUITE has already caused a stir
on the international stage. Now it's time for them to climb the next step
on a very promising career ladder.
A high level of musical and technical skills, fantastic arrangements,
symphonic sound carpets, catchy ear worms, gorgeous polyphonic vocal
passages combined with thrashy metal elements and, not to forget,
sophisticated lyrics with sense and mind ... These are the attributes that
are best describing what you can expect.
02. Orpheus' Quest
04. The Iron Cemetery
05. When Love Fails
07. Nostradamus' First Prophecy
08. The Ugly Duckling
We are merely not talking about "just another Prog Metal album". This is a real masterpiece that could be a
milestone in Progressive Metal and far beyond.
A big thanks goes to Jens Bogren (Symphony X, Paradise Lost, Opeth, James LaBrie, Soilwork, Katatonia and
many more ...) of Fascination Street Studios for his marvelous work and the convincing result in matters of mixing
and mastering, another crucial piece in the puzzle of success.
