More information: The bold new album by the legendary Canadian Progressive Rock band FM. Following on from the recent successful re-releases of their first four albums, including the landmark recording "Black Noise” (from 1978), "Transformation” sees FM continue their ‘thinking man’s exploration’ of progressive musical ideas, innovative arrangements and provocative lyrical themes.
With its roots firmly planted in late Seventies progressive rock – complex rhythms, driving bass lines, soaring melodies – the music on Transformation is symphonic in scope with not one, but two violinists on board. Co-founder and bass player/keyboardist Cameron Hawkins is joined by drumming legend Paul DeLong (Kim Mitchell, Roger Hodgson), viola/mandolinist Edward Bernard (Druckfarben) and violin virtuoso Aaron Solomon on nine, brand new compositions mixed by world-renowned producer/engineer Terry Brown (Rush, Tony Levin Band, Fates Warning, Dream Theater).
