The new project from Arjen Lucassen, Supersonic Revolution, has released a new visualizer video for the single “Golden Age of Music”, taken from the band’s upcoming debut album Golden Age of Music which will be released through Music Theories Recordings/Mascot Records on May 14.
The video the title track can be seen below.
Lucassen explains,“For me the 70s were the Golden Age of music. But that’s purely personal! If I had been born 10 years later, I guess it could have been the 80s. Anyway, in these lyrics I describe how I used to lie in bed under the blankets and secretly listen to pirate radio stations like Radio Caroline on a little transistor radio. Those pirate stations played all kinds of weird underground music, and I Ioved it! I also loved 1970s fashion, with the colourful shirts and bell bottom jeans.
“And of course, I watched all the wrong TV series, like Charlie’s Angels with the lovely Farrah Fawcett! Daisy D is of course Daisy Duke from the somewhat questionable series Dukes Of Hazzard. The name dropping becomes quite obvious in the 2nd verse, where references are made to T-Rex, Rainbow, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, Alice Cooper and Thin Lizzy. And of course, Jaycee loved singing the line “JC’s a superstar!” (Even though I obviously had another JC in mind).”
Golden Age Of Music, the latest album to feature Lucassen’s not inconsiderable talents, may also feature stellar musicianship and killer tunes, but there is no storyline that takes place far into the future in the far flung depths of space. Nor do the album’s 11 tracks come courtesy of an unending list of guest artists. The end result is 11 tracks of high energy, progressively inclined heavy rock that swings with the kind of groove Deep Purple rocked with in the early to mid 1970s.
