ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Palace Terrace is a progressive and neoclassical rock band with a theatrical and modern edge. Their music combines superb musicianship, beautifully crafted melodies, unique harmonic progressions, compelling stories, counterpoint, large orchestrations, wide dynamics, odd meters, stunning vocal arrangements and elaborate forms.

Palace Terrace was formed when composer and world renowned guitarist virtuoso George Bellas [ex Ring Of Fire, ex Mogg/Way] contacted Tenor Vocalist Jonathan R Marshall and invited him to fill the main vocalist spot in the band. The two discussed how they would like to see the band debut as well as evolve into the future. Sharing very similar visions the two began writing their first album "Flying Through Infinity". The search for an extraordinary percussionist was much of a concern for George and was a long but fruitful ambition when he finally discovered the prolific talents of Percussionist Sasha Horn.

"Flying Through Infinity" is a combination of progressive and neoclassical styles. The music contains extensive odd meters (with one section in 99/32 time), melodic vocal lines sung by John Marshall and rich vocal harmonies sung by George Bellas, along with big orchestrations and guitar solos that are drenched in feeling. The album is filled with a very wide dynamic range. Some of the vocal arrangements were written in strict 4 part counterpoint and others using imitative counterpoint. The album is very diverse in different types of songs, it contains progressive songs, neoclassical and even simple commercial structures.

On the album’s concept George Bellas states, “The essence of the album is about the journey of a soul travelling through the infinite universe and other dimensions within it. The story is really about all of us here on Earth and the wonder of what happens after we're gone. The spirit in the story is just a character that represents any one of us... wondering who we are, will we find loved ones on "the other side", feeling the need to complete unfinished business after we pass away... The soul's journey includes visiting loved ones on earth and reflecting on cherished memories all the while searching for its way to eternal peace and trying to find its ultimate purpose. At the end of the story the spirit finally finds inner peace, its ultimate purpose and a place to call home”.

This album is characterized by George's strong penchant for his unique and well defined composing style, as showcased in his previous releases, but differs from previous releases in that this is not an instrumental album, but rather a vocal based album. George debuts his vocal composing and arranging abilities as being strong and unique, evident with his inclusion of not just single melodic lines or stacked harmonies, but with his well versed ability to compose in a strict classical 4-part chorale style.

Department of Virtuosity (Poland)

Palace Terrace - Flying Through Infinity
Palace Terrace is a trio made up of a skilled artists: George Bellas (guitars, bass guitar, percussion, vocals; Ring Of Fire, Vitalij Kuprij, Mogg/Way), Jonathan R. Marshall (lead vocals) and Sasha Horn (percussion).

If you expect an insane shredding and furious guitar playing known from Bellas' solo CDs, you can be disappointed. It would be pointless to produce the same music as Palace Terrace. George offers us something absolutely different from his solo releases. Our attention is chiefly attracted by a tenor vocalist - Jonathan R. Marshall. His voice is very poetical, mysterious, magic and even sometimes romantic. His skills are as theatrical as Roy Khan, Mark Boals, Freddie Mercury, Oliver Hartmann and Olaf Hayer. As for George Bellas comes, this time he doesn't race against the light as he used to do on his solo albums. The stuff is performed at mid-tempos, even though there are also several fast parts. The lead guitar parts are mostly progressive, however guitar solos are played in neoclassical manner. George's artistic identification are twister-like solos and improvised parts here and there.

Although Jonathan R. Marshall is poorly known, I can assure you that he is in the lead of metal singers. George Bellas, thanks to his exquisite compositional skills, recognizable guitar style and technical mastery, managed to produce a fabulous mood. He should be a member of Trans-Siberian Orchestra without doubt! "Flying Through Infinity" is a progressive chamber music masterpiece!
