Title - 'The Creation'
Artist - Intelligent Music Project VI
For those not in the know, after the great success of the previous album of the band Intelligent Music Project V Life Motion, the expectations of the rock fans for the new one were logically high and we dare say that they will be fully justified!
This was said by the creator, producer and author of the music and lyrics of Intelligent Music Project Milen Vrabevski, MD.
Thus, Intelligent Music Project VI was born and their brand new album, The Creation - featuring Members of Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Asia, Styx, Nazareth and River Hounds - is out now via Intelligent Music Records.
The Creation is the newest piece of rock art by the Bulgarian businessman, philanthropist and patron of arts. In his own words, this is an album about the creative approaches, a key to success in a meaningful life.
Indeed, the album showcases the chemistry and the creative style of all five previous albums of the supergroup. The musical diversity and the positive messages of the twelve songs from The Creation make it exclusively interesting and attractive to listen.
Moreover the sixth album again features well-known, world famous, rock singers – Ronnie Romero (Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow, Michael Schenker Group, Vandenberg, Lords of Black), John Payne (ex-Asia) and Carl Sentence (Nazareth).
1. 'A Sense Of Progress'
2. 'The Story'
3. 'A Shelter'
5. 'Your Thoughts'
7. 'Back To The Truth'
8. 'Let It Go'
9. 'A Sight'
10. 'That Something'
11. 'I Know'
This quite brilliant new album opens on the melodic '80s rock vibe of 'A Sense Of Progress' and the acoustic guitar balladry of 'The Story' which are backed by the drum-led rocker 'A Shelter,' the beautiful 'Listen' and then we get the soaring, euphorically anthemic 'Your Thoughts.'
The foot-tappin' 'Sometimes' is itself backed by the stalwart, Old Country-esque, low ebb resonance of 'Back To The Truth,' the gentle skuttle shuffle of 'Let It Go,' the mid-tempo, tuneful rock of both 'A Sight' and 'That Something,' with the album rounding out on the pounding Dio-esque 'I Know,' closing on the aching ballad 'Serve.'
The Creation is the 4th Intelligent Music Project album in a row in which the fans of the band can enjoy the beautiful voice of the ex-Asia lead singer John Payne. He says about the album: "The Creation continues the conceptual album work by the Intelligent Music Project."
"The team is amazing – from the songwriting to incredible musicianship, the production. This is a fantastic album and I am proud to be part of it!”
And while Ronnie and John are well known members of Intelligent Music Project from the previous albums, here comes the big surprise for the old hard rock lovers.
The drums on the album are played by two brand new for the band, but otherwise legendary drummers – Bobby Rondinelli (Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow, Black Sabbath) and Todd Sucherman (Styx).
Bobby Rondinelli: “When Milen sent me the material I couldn’t believe how good it sounded and the demos sounded like a record already! I think The Creation is an absolutely great album with all name players, all world class guys!”
Todd Sucherman: “It’s a very diverse record and has many different styles. It was really fun for me to play!”
