For one I know already for sure.

Ik wil volstaan met de opmerking dat 'Perpetual Immobile' in de hoogste regionen van menig jaarlijstje zal belanden. Van eentje weet ik het al zeker.

I'd like to give you my compliments for this awesome album, it just doesn’t want out of my cd player.
There is so much variation a real pleasure to listen with so many different styles of music.

The overall sound and songs were really good. I master a lot of ‘progressive’ music - some great.
Some not so great! I would class this as great!

Enjoy it while it lasts

THIS IS ME, HENK BOL AKA PHILHELMON

Philhelmon Missisippi Delta 2011

For the past 52-years I’ve been a semi-pro musician and a graphic designer. My musical life began a long time ago as an eight-year-old who fell in love with the guitar upon hearing bands like The Shadows etc. As a teen my guitar playing evolved by listening to The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Cream, and many  others. After high school became interested in many other forms of music; Blues, Progressive Rock, Classical, Jazz, and all new forms of music created as a result of these styles colliding. Although getting famous was and is an unobtainable utopia,
I love music to the point of being addicted! I can't help but continue to create.
 
As a long-time (bass) guitarist I also like to write and play blues-based rock, progressive rock, and make video clips. I'm also a synthesizer aficionado. When ELP and Wendy Carlos with the MOOG Synthesizer came along
I wanted to play keyboards as well. In 1969 this helped inspire me to start ‘Bluesgroup Crusade’ with friends which in 1971 became ‘Progressive Rockgroup Crusade.’ We split up in 1974 and many of my peers started playing in famous Dutch groups like; Cuby & The Blizzards, Livin' Blues, Finch and later on in Ayreon etc.

Due to my growing interest in the facets of production, engineering, arranging, and composing, over the past
40 years, I’ve built my home-studio into a functional little recording space. What’s crazy about this generation
of musicians and producers is that the majority of them make music in basements, sheds and bedrooms - makeshift studios like mine. With the help of my growing community of musical friends I recorded my first solo project 'Different Places, Different Faces’ in 1985. It’s still available on iTunes and in many other internet stores.

In 1990 the original ‘Blues Crusade’ line-up started got back together and was renamed 'Bluesgroup Crusade+Friends'. In 2000 I left Crusade to join the crossover band ‘Precious Time’. We released the album
‘Did I Ever Tell You?’ in 2003. In 2005 ‘Precious Time’ released their second album 'If the Gods Knew’.

In 2006 I started working on my second solo project entitled, 'Enjoy it while it lasts'. This album has a slight progressive rock sound and might more fittingly be called progressive pop.
Enjoy it while it lasts' received raving press and radio reviews/interviews world wide.This Limited Edition is SOLD OUT! But still available

as download at https://philhelmon.bandcamp.com/album/enjoy-it-while-it-lasts

Making good music takes time. Simple, right? If you put in the thousand of hours your ideas will hopefully take shape. But in any workflow, there will be some problems: creative blocks, mistakes, and all the other awful things that eat up time. They may seem like a necessary evil, but dealing with roadblocks… we’ve had our fair share. It is with great pride that we present you with our most recent prog-pop-rock album ’Perpetual Immobile’.

 

The whole album involved some excellent singing and playing by a wonderful cast of national and international musicians.This idea of inspiration and collaboration also makes me feel very fortunate that I live in a time where the power of the internet can open new doorways for working with people around the globe.

Perpetual Immobile: Epistemic Impossibility is riddled with searing lead guitars, virtuosic synths, and a lot of complex layers of instruments from all over the world. Musically it is progressive rock, but definitely has a lot of melodicism and accessible hooks to the point that you could almost call it progressive pop. Conceptually, the title, Perpetual Immobile: Epistemic Impossibility, references a philosophical idea in modal logic. If something is perpetually immobile, then it is forever unmoving, and if something is epistemically impossible it cannot be true given what we know. The lyrical concepts focus on moving from the individual’s experience, to what can be known by the individual, to things that are beyond what we can know. It represents us on the journey of life and search for meaning.

We collaborate worldwide with more then 50 stellar musicians and 2 choir's resulting in 80 minutes of music. Get this deluxe Limited Edition on your shelf. CD comes in a 6 page digisleeve design with printed spine and a
28 lyrics booklet. Mastering by Steve Kitch (The Pineapple Thief) UK.


After raving reviews, interviews and comments in magazines, internet, radio attention and world wide sales,

I thought it's time to share it with you on Bandcamp as well.
