Beyond the Seventh Wave is a concept album of more than 60 minutes with as theme the hunger for freedom so common to man kind. It is based and inspired by books and movies of people being innocently convicted such as`, `Escape from Alcatraz` and `Fugitive`. and `The Next Three Days`. But most of all, it is inspired by the story of Papillion, a Frenchman cconvicted for life forced labor for a crime he did not commit. He escaped several times but was destined to live his days on "Devil Island". Would he finally escape?
Silhouette is very excited about the news of the upcoming release. We believe this album is better than anything we have done so far, with long epics ("Web of Lies", `Lost Paradise`), heavy stuff ("Narrow Escape"), symphonic expeditions ("Devils Island") and sing/along songs that we might even release as singles in the autumn ("Solitary" and "Wings to Fly")
We are also proud to announce that we have quite an impressive list of guest musicians playing on the album, including Ton Scherpenzeel (Kayak, Camel); Ruben van Kruistum and Laura ten Voorde (Adeia) and Tamara van Koetsveld (Dutch Royal Airforce Orchestra).
