ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In their sophomore album, Cassandra's Curse project a more evolved Progressive Rock sound with a bent on storytelling without losing their core approach of making memorable music. This time, the songs are interspersed with an audio drama that unfolds to the listener, giving them a background for the mood and essence of the lyrics and music.
The idea for this concept album first came to the mind of erstwhile co-founder and drummer of the band Nicholas "Ginger Jesus" Burtner. He originally came up with the story of Captain Robert Razal, a Research Officer at a top secret military base at Area 51. This story was then molded into a script by frontman Charan SpidaFingaz, with voice actors lending their talent to present an interesting story to the listeners.
"It's a bold statement we are making with this ambitious concept album," says Charan. "We are going to have lovers of the classic concept albums and old school Prog lovers see it for what it is - an experience more than the run-of-the-mill music album. And then we would have, I expect, some who will scratch their heads scoffing at the need for this audio drama. From where I sit, I see it as a necessary step for Cassandra's Curse to take these risks as we grow as a band."
Ultimately, it is for the listeners to decide whether this brave and unusual concept album speaks to them on an individual level.
