On the first of September 2005 Richard Andersson started to compose the
songs for “Optical Illusion”, Time Requiems third studio album. Taking
only two months to complete the eight songs, Richard had Göran Edmans
voice in mind the whole process through.
Since Richard has always been interested in film music and the way they
build up the special movements, just like the classical masters; the music
could best be described as neo - progressive film - musical metal...
Everything was recorded, mixed and even mastered in Richards Lipton studio.
Having this total control from beginning to end is the fact that the result
is vividly stunning. The artwork idea was developed by Richard in collaboration
with art director Mattias Norén at Progart Media in Sweden. Mattias
has done artwork for artists such as Ayreon, Evergrey and Stratovarius…
“Optical Illusion” will once again prove that Time Requiem is in the elite
of bands playing neoclassic influenced metal. Their musicianship is stunning,
the songs enticingly progressive, perfectly composed and performed. This
is an album for the true neoclassic metal connoisseur.
