Thanks!

Saturday, May 16th, 2009

I’d like to thank everybody that came out to the CD release party Friday evening, it was great fun and a huge success, especially given the early hour! I saw many familiar faces of course, and met a number of new fans as well. I don’t think I’ve ever talked so much to so many people in a single evening.

I’ve been told we have some decent video of this show, so I may be posting something from that in the next couple days, so check back right here.

And in the mean time, thanks to our long-time friends, Kevin Ehling, Dean Williams and Veronica Bradford, we have some pics from the show:

Impressive packaging & artwork for their debut release. Chock full of lyrics (although a bit difficult to read as it appears blurry against background art), and a very interesting storyline to follow. The album titled “[The Count, Act I – The Soul of a Prisoner]” is a feat of progressive glory.

The band is tight, the production (as far as instrumentation goes) is superb. They receive glowing reviews for their live shows. I can imagine why, as the music certainly comes across as unique and well composed. I presume the vocalist, who doubles as the band’s guitarist, can pull off the performance live – which would certainly set them apart from other gigging bands who tend to drop the ball on live performance when the pressure is on.
