Banks Of Eden was recorded with the band playing live in one room in a studio in January 2012, a recording much like in the old days of classic prog, before computers hit the market.
"We aimed for the classic big warm vinyl-sound of old records by Queen, Genesis, Zeppelin or Deep Purple," says founder and frontman Roine Stolt.
"The album is a reflection of my thoughts on the world of today, I would say. I think this is where Roine Stolt as a person stands today. There are elements of both politics and religion, but I try to write lyrics without lecturing the fans. Still I always try to put something of a true wisdom of life or poetic beauty into the lyrics that hopefully stays with them." added Stolt.
