Δελτίο τύπου: «"Rise 1187" is the first single from the second Foreign album "The Symphony Of The Wandering Jew Part II" (out: December 4th, 2020) which features none other than Zak Stevens (Savatage, Circle II Circle, Trans-Siberian Orchestra) on vocals. Video by: Designstudio Ertl.»

Bio: «Foreign is a metal / rock opera from another time, like a real journey inside time and space, more gazed on melodies which can provoke dreams on you, as if you were deep inside the millennial quest of Ahasverus, the poor Jewish man cursed by Jesus Christ, condemned to immortality to have refused him a glass of water, when he was climbing the mount for the crucifixion...

Still under control of author / composer / singer / keyboardist Ivan Jacquin (Psychanoïa, Amonya, Magnesis...), the wandering jew is following his own quest, after the time when we left him at the end of the first album. Now’s the time of Holy Crusades back in Jerusalem and Ahasverus, alias Omar Kyan for a little while, he will meet terrible Salah ad-Dîn, for a strange and short alliance...

The story of this second album will bring us until the dawn of industrial revolution, passing by Vikings lands, Cristoforo Colombo and his historical mistake, Francois the 1st and his dream of alchemy, Nostradamus’ prophecies, the Shakespeare enigma, Mozart and his genius art, and it will end with several revolutions, in 1789 in France and in the beginning of the 19th century for rising industry and mechanical inventions.

When seeing the success and interest about Part I in 2014, some guests, singers and musicians from the whole world and well-known in rock, progressive and metal universe have accepted to be part of the second record of this amazing trilogy.

This includes the massive talents of Leo Margarit (Pain of Salvation, Epysode) on drums, Mike Lepond (Symphony X, Silent Assassins) on bass, the vocalists Zak Stevens (Circle II Circle, Savatage, TSO), Andy Kuntz (Vanden Plas) and Tom S. Englund (Evergrey), as well as Amanda Lehmann (Steve Hackett Band) on vocals and lead guitars.

Most of the musicians playing in part I will be back in this adventure and some characters will remain in their being to perpetuate the quest... Foreign II welcomes lots of characters, female and male singers, the mixed choir named "The sirens of time" and about twenty metal and rock musicians and other instrumentalists more "exotic" and rare (hammered dulcimer, oboe, cello, duduk, harp, hurdy-gurdy...); forty artists in total.

Part II was mixed in Markus Teske’s Bazement Studio (Vanden Plas, Red Circuit, Mob Rules...) in Germany and will be released on December 4th, 2020 via Pride & Joy Music. The fantastic human and musical adventure will continue to make you travel and dream through times of our own History...»
