Video Premiere: Kompendium Release Lily With Guest Star Steve Hackett
Steve Hackett is the star guest on Kompendium’s first-ever release Lily, available to watch below in a video premiere.
It’s taken from the ambitious album Beneath the Waves, a three-year labour-of-love on the part of Magenta keyboardist Rob Reed, and also features vocalist Angharad Binn.
In a recent Prog Magazine feature Reed explained his aim was to emulate the epic work of Mike Oldfield, Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush.
The result is an album featuring guest appearances from Steve Balsamo, Gavin Harrison, Nick Beggs, Troy Donockley, Francis Dunnery, John Mitchell, Mel Collins and many others.
“This is classic prog with Celtic influences,” Reed says. “It’s a concept album and hopefully will appeal to those who enjoy War of the Worlds, Dark Side of the Moon and Tubular Bells.”
Beneath the Waves is now available for pre-order in limited-edition CD/DVD with gatefold sleeve, booklet and bonus videos, and 180gsm audiophile double vinyl gatefold, in black and limited-edition blue vinyl. Find out more at www.kompendium-web.com.
