AGENTS OF MERCY. the new band from Transatlantic -The Flower Kings veteran guitarist Roine Stolt.
The band has just released the new powerful album "The Black Forest" a massive epic prog album that echoes the riffing of Led Zeppelin and the orchestral beauty of early Genesis or Yes.
The relatively young band has already a tour record with raved about shows in USA and mainland Europe.
Agents Of Mercy was a project spawned from a "low key" acoustic project that Roine set out to do in 2008, but after getting singer Nad Sylvan (Unifaun) onboard to do a few "guest vocals" it turned into a full production prog album where Nad got more involved.
On March 7th 2009, Foxtrot Music released an album "The Fading Ghosts Of Twilight" .
3 drummers tracked for the 12 songs, Pat Mastelotto (of King Crimson, Mr Mister fame ,etc.) Zoltan Csörsz (TFK, Karmakanic) and Jimmy Keegan (Santana, Spocks Beard Live) the eccentric Biggo Zelfries piano, violin and analogue keyboards and TFK bassist Jonas Reingold added some fretless bass spice too.
