More information: Hailed as “one of the most original and daring groups on the planet”, Australia’s VOYAGER has battled geographical isolation to tour Europe twice, perform at ProgPower Europe 2006 and share stages with diverse acts like NIGHTWISH, STEVE VAI, SOILWORK and ALESTORM. They are the first Australian band ever to be invited to play at the prestigious PROGPOWER USA festival in 2011. The band’s loyal international fan-base has praised its incredibly catchy songwriting and compared its sound to a mixture of AMORPHIS’ thirst for melody, SOILWORK’s heaviness and the crystal vocal clarity of A-HA’s Morton Harket!
Formed in 1999, VOYAGER has 3 full-length albums under its belt, each one propelling them further into cult status as an elite progressive metal band. “The Meaning of I” is an introspective, at times electronic, yet occasionally uplifting journey into the mind in search of meaning. It is a culmination of VOYAGER’s sound: polished yet organic, heavy yet melodic, dark yet playful. Its melody, songwriting and structure tastefully flow through a labyrinth of emotions, perfected by the mixing and mastering work of JENS BOGREN (OPETH, KATATONIA, SOILWORK). The album is complemented by the guest vocal performances of DAN TOMPKINS (TESSERACT) and DC COOPER (ROYAL HUNT). Once again, artwork master GEORGE GRIE provided the gripping cover to complete this journey into the mind.
