Now you've heard that term a million times - 'cause it's PROG. However it is safe to say that this is IT - the album concept dealing with that big dark and scary forest - but not about trolls and dragons. "The Black Forest" is a surreal journey - a metaphor for a trip thru very dark disturbing and likewise scary times, where we set out on a lifelong journey knowing of all the scary encounters lurking out there. Greed, lust, hunger for power, money, eternal life, mindcontrol and guess what .....we're the prey !!
