POWER PROG is very pleased to announce the signing of the
highly occupied international metal musician cooperation, THE
CHRONICLES PROJECT. Our first big common goal is the release
of their album "When Darkness Falls" at December 11, 2015 as
Audio-CD, download card, digital download and stream.

THE CHRONICLES PROJECT was initiated by mastermind Malte
Rathke (former keyboardist of J.R.Blackmore) in June 2011. After
many tries to find the right and matching musicians for the project
in the local scene, Malte decided to go another way and started a
YouTube collaboration where he invited musicians from all over the
world to work together on the basis of his ideas. After getting
tremendous positive feedback on the material and after realizing
that the whole thing began to exceed the expectations of
everyone, the bar was raised and the former YouTube collaboration
turned into a real studio project ... with clear intentions and plans
for a multiple albums spanning concept. Over the following years,
with a lot of efforts and all the skills of the involved, the songs were
arranged, refined and recorded to obtain a maximum and best
possible result. In July 2015 the album was handed to talented
Simone Mularoni at Domination Studios for mixing and mastering
and to create a real sound experience. Mission accomplished!

With "When Darkness Falls", THE CHRONICLES PROJECT lays down the first milestone of an epic multipart tale
out of another world. The story in brief: "The immortal soul gatherers Twilight, Nightfall and Sirelius came to Earth to
collect the souls of the deceased and deliver them to the sleeping god Isaari. But an ancient pact and the murder of
the mortal Mary threaten not only their mission, but also the equilibrium of forces and therefore the existence of

Mastermind and keyboarder Malte Rathke has managed it in a brilliant way to merge the different characters of the
story into a large whole, musically and lyrically implemented in an impressive manner. With the participation of an
illustrious family of well-known singers like Andi Kravljaca (Nergard, Thaurorod, Aeon Zen, Temet Nosce, ex-Silent
Call),  Dave Esser (Dave Esser, Schattenspieler), Rob Lundgren (Powerdrive, Scientic), Vasilis Georgiou (Black
Fate, SunBurst, Innosense) and Patricia Romera Holgado, plus a sensational acting instrumental section,
consisting of Ivan Ravaioli (Lead and rhythm guitars), Martino Garattoni (Bass) and Sam Tickner (drums), a unique
concept album has arisen that will cause a sensation in the world of metal and will leave a lasting and sustainable
impression at each listener.

Progressive power metal lovers and fans of bands like Kamelot, Blind Guardian, Symphony X, Stratovarius, Pagan's
Mind, Vanden Plas and other genre greats will have their real joy. But also, and in particular, friends of metal opera
concepts like Ayreon or Avantasia have to listen up and should give THE CHRONICLES PROJECT their full
attention, mainly due to the fact that further albums are planned in a not too far future ... so the journey will go on
soon. In any case you have to say: A required course and a strict must have for every discerning metal fan!
