Our album of the month December is by Roine Stolt, known as the guitarist, singer, writer and at times band leader of the groups The Flower Kings, Transatlantic, Agents of Mercy, Kaipa
DC, as well as from his work with prog icon Jon Anderson and the new super-group The Sea Within.Under the moniker ROINE STOLT’S THE FLOWER KING, ’Manifesto Of An Alchemist’ offers 10 songs and almost 70 minutes of playing time celebrating
the style Roine is most revered for: progressive rock, richly orchestrated with all the trademark elements from four decades of the genre. 'Manifesto Of An Alchemist' is a celebration of all the styles that have been part of the colourful, daring and dynamic
songwriting and arrangements that Roine masters like no other, yet also offers a more immediate, more hands on approach. The album features a host of other musicians, including long-time collaborators Jones Reingold, Hans Froberg & Michael Stolt, as well
as fellow The Sea Within member Marco Minnemann, Max Lorentz, Zach Kamins, Rob Townsend & Nad Sylvan.
