It’s time for a new chapter in our story, as we will release our brand new album Blue Light Cage to the world on the 23rd of October 2020.
Featuring guest solo spots by the likes of Derek Sherinian (Sons of Apollo, Planet X etc.) and Marek Arnold (Seven Steps to the Green Door etc.) among other new musical ideas brought in by all of us (manager included!), this album is one that will both delight and surprise new listeners and our long time fans.
The artwork for this record was made by long time collaborator Nello Dell’Omo, who was responsible for the artwork for our debut album Flowing Portraits back in 2008. Mixing and mastering was done by Jacopo Pettini and Alessandro Guasconi at Virus Studio in Siena (Italy).

It marks a fundamental step-stone in the history of the band, as it’s the first album with Claudio on bass. We met him when most of the album was already written, but we decided to almost re-write it with him on board to create a continuity with the albums to come.
Getting in touch with Arno Menses for Closer To Daylight
Before changing singer (Michele quit the band for health reasons, asked us to find a new singer and we found Fabio), we already decided to have a guest singer on the epic suite Aftermath. One of our ideas was to contact Neal Morse, so our manager Davide started mailing with him. He liked the song but he was too busy with all of his projects so he couldn’t make it. Another idea was to contact the former Sieges Even and actual Subsignal singer Arno Menses. His voice was just perfect for the song and luckily he accepted to perform the task! His work on the song really brought it to another level, as he wrote the whole vocal line and the backings on that one.
… and getting in touch with Marco Sfogli
When deciding who should have played the guitar solo on River’s Edge, some of us proposed John Mitchell but then Luca had an idea: why not asking to Marco Sfogli? He’s one of the most recognized guitar player in the world, plus he’s just some kilometers away from our hometown. We asked him and he gladly accepted, we met him, brought him in our studio, we made him personally listen to the track and had a pleasant chat. Some days after that meeting we had the best solo we could ever wished for! He was so kind to give us also this video of a live play-through:
So, just some anecdotes to share and to give the warmest of greetings: happy birthday Closer To Daylight! You’re “closer to” 11 now.
One year ago today we released the first single The Ghost Syndicate (featuring two outstanding keyboard solo by legendary Derek Sherinian) from our new album Blue Light Cage! This is the official videoclip, starring Walter Lippa, Luigi Lopez, Salvatore Marino, Jacopo Manzo, Onil Baylòn Valente and directed by G2 Studios.
4 years ago today we released our fourth album BABEL!
We premiered it at the Loreley Amphitheater during the Night Of The Prog XII on July 14th 2017, sharing the stage with Second Relation, Maschine, Blind Ego, Crippled Black Phoenix and Mike Portnoy’s Shattered Fortress.
In addition, in the following days names like Ray Wilson, Yes and Marillion played as well, making that a truly unbelievable experience!
Today we announce that we’re currently working on our next album! It will be about a strange journey, there will be sky, earth, sea, mountains, clouds, people all around the world, all the colors and all the languages AND it will be a graphic novel, so that anyone can image their favorite music. COMING SOON!
