  • docker's guild: the mystic technocracy (season 1: the age of ignorance)
    (2012, cd, --, lion music)
Here's something that you don't hear that often: Douglas R. Docker wrote a rock opera in five parts. Part one, or season one as it's called, is about to get released on the Lion Music record label.

Although Douglas Docker says that he's inspired by progressive bands like Yes, ELP, Dream Theater and Genesis, the album has a heavy AOR signature.
Besides Douglas R. Docker (keyboard & vocals) the album features quite a selection of musicians: Gregg Bissonette, Magnus Jacobson, Tony Franklin, Guthrie Govan and John Payne, to name just a few.

As you might guess by the cover, the opera itself is a science fiction story. It's about all the wars and murders that people have comitted in the name of their God.
It's not a story against religion as such, but more about the madness of fundamental, dogmatic views.

Fans of keyboard-oriented OAR need to check this out.

Here's the official trailer:
