ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Agents Of Mercy - Brainchild of progrock icon & Transatlantic guitarist/member Roine Stolt, are back with a new full on studio album titled "DramaRama".
In it's true retro-spirit it is rehearsed and recorded "live" in Varispeed Studios in Sweden, with very few overdubs. 12 songs written by Roine Stolt & singer Nad Sylvan - the concept was "to find the roots of our inspiration and the sounds we love" so there's the obvious late 60's and early 70's feel.

12 titles that focus more on melody, storytelling and drama than technical delivery - not withstanding the fact that the band house some of the most skilled hi - profile musicians in the present prog scene.
Lalle Larsson is a modern day Keith Emerson or Rick Wakeman keyboard hero/virtuoso much in the 70's progressive rock tradition.

Huge rumble and swoosh from drums, fuzzy grinding & thunder bass, gnarly Wurlizer piano,stereophonic Hammond swirls and adventurous moog ornaments, Telecaster twang and burning vintage Voxtubes - all there to support our swinging drama-delic 60's tripback.

"Plenty of symphonic rewards for the diehard fans of TFK or Transatlantic style prog - closer to Flowerkings epics like Retropolis than Rainmaker - but yet more scaled down, happy classic rock, Symphonic glam & pop too".
Borrows from theatrical rock - to film noir - from the oddity of Bowie - to the cosmic of energy Mahavishnu Orchestra.
The new album is a big leap towards a more complete classic (prog)rock band feel - where the 1st album stayed firmly in melancholic pastel and mellow contemplating, but yet demanding modes.

"DramaRama" is an independent release from Stolt's own label, designed to operate freely and adapt in this new dawn of recorded music - so buy it and support more new adventurous recordings from this team.

This is the future of Progressive rock !
Give it more than 2 spins and it will be rewarding in abundance - this is modern Prog rock with "staying power"..

The band consist of:
Nad Sylvan (Unifaun) VOCAL & KEYBOARDS
Roine Stolt (Transatlantic, Flowerkings) GUITARS
Jonas Reingold (Flowerkings, Karmakanic) BASS
Lalle Larsson ( Weaveworld, Karmakanic) KEYBOARDS
