“The unknown beckons us to take leave of the norm and embark on journeys of all kinds.” And so begins the journey into the instrumental progressive rock novel Into The Great Divide, due out January 26th. The project, whose mastermind has not revealed himself, re-interprets Joseph Campbell’s classic and influential 1949 archetype The Hero’s Journey. Produced by Richard Chycki (Dream Theater, Rush) and featuring Mike Mangini of Dream Theater on drums, the goal of the release is “to tell the story across 10 individual chapters, each constructed independently to evoke the specific characteristics of that part of the story.”
We got our first taste of the material when they released the ‘Tests & Enemies’ single a few weeks ago, and today we have the exclusive premiere of another chapter. Get lost in the brilliant ‘Challenge Accepted’ track below!
