Roine Stolt’s The Flower Kings släpper nytt album.
Plattan har fått titeln “Manifesto Of An Alchemist” och släpps den 23 november via InsideOut Music.
“Unlike many later albums, where recordings have continued over months, this new album has been a fairly quick and effective affair – we started tracking in Holland at the beginning of July and mix was done by mid-August! The songs are written in a very ‘unorthodox’ way – some melodic content and some riffs are ideas that have been circulating for years – some may even be from before the first TFK album – they just hadn’t found a home in any of the bands/albums I did in the last 15 years yet.”
‘Manifesto Of An Alchemist’ is a celebration of all the styles that have been part of the colourful, daring and dynamic songwriting and arrangements that Roine masters like no other, yet also offers a more immediate, more hands on approach. “Like that first TFK album, I’m the main lead vocalist here again – it works as these lyrics are important to me and resonate with my view of the world. A lot of the guitar work is actually my spontaneous ‘demo’ guitars” and that goes for much of the synth work, too. I didn’t want to ‘process’ ideas too much as there is much power in the initial creation – I wanted to keep it that way.”
På albumet hittar vi förutom Roine Stolt, Jonas Reingold, Hasse Fröberg & Michael Stolt, även musiker som Marco Minnemann, Max Lorentz, Zach Kamins, Rob Townsend och Nad Sylvan.
