Premiere: Thought Chamber – Transcend
Prog Magazine is proud to premiere Transcend, a nine-minute epic from upcoming Thought Chamber album Psykerion. Hear it below.
Vocalist Ted Leonard, now with Spock’s Beard, has reunited with multi-instrumentalist Michael Harris for the long-awaited follow-up to debut album Angular Perceptions. They’re joined by bassist Jeff Plant, keyboardist Bill Jenkins and drummer Mike Haid on the 16-track title.
Harris tells Prog: “Transcend kind of epitomises what Thought Chamber does: lots of melody, while getting our chops in, and we exploit a lot of styles in it, from metal to acoustic to fusion.”
He says of the lyrics: “Avakus’ mind has been awakened and inspired by his voyage to Psykerion, and he gets philosophical about what makes humans tick, from instinct to ego to the drive to succeed.”
Psykerion is released on September 16 via InsideOut.
