    I've liked everything you folks have done until now so I'm looking forward to this.
    No matter what anyone says, you are the decider of how you will listen to music.

    This is indeed great news as I posted before, is by any chance Steve and Resistor also at work on a new album? Looking for a "daily double" no less

    The Samurai of Prog return with a new album of originals inspired by Miyazaki’s films. From pastorale to epic, this is symphonic progressive rock of a cinematic scope.
    75 minutes of lush orchestration (including violin, flute, saxophone, horns, trumpets and a multitude of keyboard and guitar tones), with ringing Rickenbacker bass and
    wide dynamic range drums providing backbone throughout. Featuring compositions and guest performances by Oliviero Lacagnina (Latte e Miele), Octavio Stampalía (Jinetes Negros),
    Elisa Montaldo (Il Tempio delle Clessidre), Luca Scherani (La Coscienza di Zeno), Michele Mutti (La Torre dell’Alchimista), Yuko Tomiyama, plus many more.
    Mixed in audiophile quality by the Samurai’s own Kimmo Pörsti, with a lush package designed by Ed Unitsky.
    Quite possibly the band’s best album to date.
    Worldwide release April 2019.

    OMG this is a beautiful album, perhaps the most striking pieces of symphonic rock, primarily instrumental, I have heard in way too long (and I listen to lots of symph!) No vocals until several tracks in, then the great vocalist from Simon Says (who I read had moved to Poland!) joins in, followed in later tracks by beautiful female vox in japanese and of course Steve Unruh's vocal contributions as well. What a delight from start to finish. May their their crowning achievement thus far. Highest recommendation for lovers of old school symph like me!

    From what I heard of the Samurai-CD's I also think this is their best, especially because the musicians don't force themself to create the bombast of earlier works, but play wonderfully and quietly the well crafted compositions. No covers this time (I believe the previous one didn't have them either), which gives the musicians more freedom I guess.

    Listened to my CD for the first time earlier this week.....Fantastic! And that was in the car....can’t wait to hear it at home! So good to hear the Simon Says singer again! Loved that band....this is one is so good! Mostly instrumental, which was unexpected and a nice surprise. Thanks for continuing to make great music! Also thanks for continued audiophile quality recordings! That is sorely missed on so many releases these days.......
    So much music....so little time....

    Last album covered Camel's "Ice" amazingly. There was also a cover of Bowie's "Heroes" which I think no one can perform well because it's just a bad song.
