Background

"Circle of Illusion" releases their first progressive symphony Jeremias. An epic piece of music, which tells the story of "Jeremias - Foreshadow of Forgotten Realms" deals in its final version with the ambivalence of human emotion. Hence the borders between various progressive influences of the rock/metal genre, the jazz-funk-soul and the cinematic music get blurred. Moreover you are taken on a journey through the fantastic worlds of the subconscious of a cast-out and self-critical character. In a master-mind fashion the composer/keyboarder Gerald Peter and songwriter/vocalist Taris Brown were able to give way to their creative urge. With the lofty and complex kind of composition, instrumental virtuosity and an orchestral cast and bandsound "Circle of Illusion" enters new musical paths and is hence a must for all fans of progressive, classic as well as sophisticated rock-music.
