Beyond Twilight Post Rare Songs From First Demo Online

Danish/Swedish prog-metallers BEYOND TWILIGHT have made two very rare songs ("Eyes" and "Carousel of Life") from the band's 1996 demo "Lurking Fantasia" available for download at the band's official web site:

Carousel of Life

The band's leader, Finn Zierler, commented: "The album ['Lurking Fantasia'] will never be released. It was just a rough demo never meant to be released. But since we keep getting requests about it we've made a special for you. Please keep in mind I wrote the track 12 years ago and it was recorded 10 years ago 1996. It is just a demo".

BEYOND TWILIGHT's latest release, "For the Love of Art and the Making", recently hit the No. 1 spot on the Top 100 Progressive Music Album Chart Of 2006 beating TOOL's "10,000 Days", DAVID GILMOUR's "On an Island", and QUEENSRŸCHE's "Operation Mindcrime II". The chart is compiled by ProgArchives.com, one of the most respected and progressive rock/metal online sources.

In a recent interview with Denmark's Antenna webzine, Zierler said of the band's latest effort, "'For the Love of Art and the Making' is by far the most complex album we've ever done. Everything about the album is complex. The compositions are huge — consisting of hundreds of layers and containing widely complex patterns rhythms and symbolisms. There are many 'hidden' details on the album — lots of stuff for music enthusiasts to analyze and for BEYOND TWILIGHT fans to enjoy and understand. The structure is very complex too. It's not structured like an ordinary album with tracks made out of verse, bridge, chorus etc. None of the musical pieces on the album are repeated twice the same way. You can compare the structure to reading a book, watching a movie or as a complex story with a lot of emotions being told in form of music."
