Early March 2009 will see the release of a brand new album "The Fading Ghosts Of Twilight" - by the new project called AGENTS OF MERCY. The album will initially be a LTD edition Digipack with 77+ minutes of brand new music & 20 pages book.
Agents Of Mercy is a project spawned from a low key acoustic project that Roine Stolt set out to do in 2008, but after getting singer Nad Sylvan (Unifaun) on board to do a few "guest vocals" it turned into a full production prog album where Nad got more involved and did most of both lead and backing vocals on the album. Songs got longer and more elaborated and more symphonic and the common love of late 60's and early 70's prog is all over this album.
A few favourite drummers tracked drums for the 12 tracks, Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson, XTC, Stickmen, Tuner etc.) Zoltan Csörsz (TFK, Karmakanic) and Jimmy Keegan (Santana, Spocks Beard Live) the eccentric Biggo Zelfries (Walrus Farm) did most of the piano and analogue keyboards and TFK bassist Jonas Reingold add some fretless bass spice too. Silas Toball (www.silastoball.com ) did the mysterious artwork for us and the album is mixed by agent 777 Stolt at Cosmic Lodge as usual.
