Music are proud to announce the signing of DOCKER’S GUILD
to the label for the debut album “The Mystic
Technocracy - Season 1: The Age of Ignorance”.
Docker's Guild is the solo effort of Douglas R. Docker,
who put his talent and writing skill into “The Mystic
Technocracy”, an opera which unfolds over 5
“seasons”. The first season, called “Season I: The Age
of Ignorance”, sees the participation of worldwide
acclaimed musicians like
Gregg Bissonette (Joe Satriani, David Lee Roth),
Magnus Jacobson, Tony Franklin (Blue Murder),
Guthrie Govan (Asia), Jeff Watson (MNight Ranger),
John Payne (Asia, GPS), Göran Edman (Karmakanic,
Yngwie Malmsteen), Amanda Somerville (Kiske/Somerville),
Tony Mills (TNT, Shy) and many others. Docker's
Guild, even if inspired by progressive masters like Yes, ELP,
Dream Theater and Genesis, lives on its own sounds which is
a very personal mixture of progressive roots played and
crafted by mainly AOR musicians.
Douglas R. Docker has worked with a lot of acclaimed artists
like Tony Franklin, Tim Bogert, Shining Line and Graig
Goldie besides being the keyboardist for internationally
acclaimed melodic rock band Biloxi. Biloxi's debut "Let The
Games Begin" obtained worldwide success, reaching #10 in the
Japanese charts (Burrn! Magazine) and #1 in England as the
best import CD of 1993 (Kerrang! Magazine), as well as
collecting an impressive amount of rave reviews worldwide.
Biloxi toured the Los Angeles club scene extensively in
1993-1994, regularly headlining and selling out all the
legendary Sunset Strip clubs, such as the Roxy, the Wiskey à
Gogo and the Troubadour, among others. Biloxi then went on a
promotional tour in Mississippi which culminated by
headlining a show at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum in
Biloxi (MS) in January 1994.
The Mystic Technocracy is a new and exciting science-fiction
story and music project that has been in development for a
number of years. It is the fictional outcome of a very
simple observation: for 4000 years man has tortured,
murdered, waged warfare and committed genocide in the name
of the same God worshiped by Christians, Jews and Muslims,
the three monotheistic religions. It is not a story against
religion, but it is a story about the madness of man when he
falls under the influence of fanatical dogmatic faith. This
religious premise has then been plugged into a
science-fiction universe, in which religion was created by a
silicon-based life form, the Mystic Technocracy, in order to
control, manipulate and eventually destroy humanity.
like TV series and 1930s serials like Babylon 5, Space 1999,
Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers, this is for you. If you like
progressive rock bands like Yes, ELP and Dream Theater, AOR
bands like Asia and Journey as well as Duran Duran, David
Bowie, Jarre and The Rockets, this is also for you. If you
have a healthy dislike of fundamentalism, and blind dogmatic
faith, and spend lots of time wondering why so much pain and
destruction can be generated by religions whose main goal is
supposed to be love and compassion, then this is definitely
release date for Docker's Guild “The Mystic
Technocracy - Season 1: The Age of Ignorance” will be
announced shortly. In the meantime a teaser video for
the album can be viewed at
Lion Music are proud to announce the signing of Italian
progressive metal band THE MOOR to the label’s
Hailing from from Venice (IT), The Moor were formed in the
summer of 2009 by vocalist/guitarist Enrico Longhin
and guitarist Davide Carraro (both ex-members of
Bleed In Vain). In 2010, after some early line-up
changes, Riccardo Freguja (bass) and Max Lombardo (drums)
were the right persons for what became The Moor’s self
titled debut EP. Recorded during spring/summer 2010, mixing
and mastering sessions took place at Studio Fredman
(Sweden) with acclaimed producers Fredrik Nordstrom
and Henrik Udd (In Flames, Dream Evil, Opeth, Dimmu
Borgir, Bring Me The Horizon). After the EP’s recording
sessions Max Lombardo quit the band and was replaced by
Alberto Businari. A further line-up change occurred in
July 2011 with new bassist Massimo Cocchetto (ex
Bleed In Vain) solidifying the line-up.
Since their inception, The Moor has consistently
incorporated sounds from prog rock, metal, death metal (for
the guitars parts), seventies and alternative influences
into their compositions making for a very compelling end
product; yet all the time with a metal outlook.
In the run up to the bands full length debut album due later
in 2012, Lion Music will digitally release the bands
self titled 5 track EP ‘The Moor’ on 27th January
on all leading digital platforms (iTunes, Amazon etc).
