Beyond Man & Time
2012 concept album from one of Germany's most successful modern Prog/Art rock bands. Beyond Man And Time is a musical journey through the world outside of Platon's cave. The basic idea is a so-called "revaluation of value" in terms of a new way of thinking. In this world beyond man and time there exist creatures of higher knowledge that the protagonist meets allegorically along his journey: The keeper of the cave, the willingly blind, the scientist, the ugliest human, the creator, the shadow, the wise man in the desert and the fisherman. These create the musical themes for the characters in Beyond Man And Time, and along with oriental percussion, expanded Moog-soli and Indian sitar, create a well placed, atmospheric and colorful adaptation of the theme. RPWL have always been about originality and experimentation and Beyond Man And Time is a vast sociological journey through the depths of man's psyche and a welcome addition to their catalogue of exceptional and creative releases.
