Steve Gagné leaves Mystery

Dear Fans : A few months ago, our friend drummer Steve Gagné informed us that he would not be recording the new Mystery album in order to concentrate and persue a new personal career and challenge.

Steve joined Mystery in 1997 during the recording of the Destiny album, it was not long before he became a friend and a major force behind Mystery and over the years his strength and profesionalism has taught us to be better musicians and artists in the most humble way.

It is with great regret that we have to inform you that Steve will not be part of the new album, but at the same time we are very excited and happy for him and his new ventures and we wish him all the best. Music is a long road and our paths will certainly cross again.

SLP signs with Unicorn Digital

UNICORN DIGITAL is proud to welcome SLP into the family. Sébastien Lépine has established a solid reputation in the realm of classical music, yet he is also a highly versatile artist, a musical renaissance man who never hesitates to venture out on the uncertain path of experimentation. SLP (for Sébastien Lépine Project) finds the cellist temporarily swapping his precious Stradivarius for an electric cello, backed by the stalwart musicianship of guitarist Martin Carbonneau, bassist Ian Peterson, and drummer Denis Marchand. Within this electric chamber ensemble, if one may so call it, he delivers his own jazz-infused progressive rock compositions, creating an eclectic, yet attractive amalgamation of sounds.

Inspired by the likes of King Crimson, Pat Metheny, and Gentle Giant, the former pupil of cello master Janos Starker explores the many facets of the electric cello through remarkably well-written works that brilliantly showcase the spectacular instrument. Featuring electric guitar, electric bass, and drums, the performance is as surprising as it is uniquely innovative.

ALBUM AVAILABLE , DEC 15th on the Unicorn Website and Jan 15th 2011 in all your favourite progressive rock record store

Face of our Fathers,
New album from Pictorial Wand




Three years after the well-received "A Sleeper´s Awakening", a new album from Mattis Sorum´s Pictorial Wand has finally arrived. "Face of our Fathers" is an album, compared to the former "A Sleeper´s Awakening" a little more to the point maybe, a little more focused on the vocals, and clearer themes on each song. But the variation from the last album is absolutely there, with acoustic passages roaming through heavy stuff and further into the fantastic world of the analogue synths. A couple of new, amazing vocalists and instrumentalists have been brought onto the set this time, together with some from the former album. It is a concept-album, like the Sleeper-album of course, and we follow the destiny of four characters fighting for what they believe in.

The main theme of this album is how the former

generations leave behind an inheritance for the next, and how they in turn try to deal with it. We will see a pulling between pride, reason, love and hope in the struggle for their own needs and believes and the fulfilling of what is expected of them from the former generations. The circle ends with father and son facing eachother on the battlefield...

10th anniversary Edition for MYSTERY album Destiny?

10 years ago, Mystery had just released their 3rd CD entitled Destiny? This album received rave reviews from all over the world. The album cover showed a child waiting for the schoolbus in front of a cemetary. What will happen between this young kid school day and the day that this kid, hopefully very old, will die.

Well in 10 years many things happened. Members have left and other have joined the band, and unfortunately some have left for another world. The world is not really the same anymore and everything did not turn out according to plans or was it all just following the course of a greater master plan fore-ordained by the Divine?? Who knows?, One thing is sure the questions asked on Destiny? Have not been answered yet and probably never will.

2 songs will not make the final mix in 1998 including Beneath the Veil of Winter’s Face which 9 years later has become the title track of Mystery’s best selling CD, and Hevean can Wait that you can now find on the new 10th Anniversary edition of DESTINY?

After the release of MYSTERY’s latest album Beneath the Veil of Winter’s Face, Tracks from the Destiny? Sessions were transferred into Illusion Studio’s computer and the new mix was started. Michel St-Pere says about this project: Not only this album brought MYSTERY to a new level, but it also started the whole Unicorn Records adventure. But I was not satisfied with the mix and after mixing Beneath the Veil of Winter’s Face, I knew I could bring Destiny to a new level.

The new mix sounds a lot better than the original and this album deserves to be heard the way it was meant to be. The 10th anniversary edition of Destiny is now available,

FLOOD first album Tales from the Four Seasons

FLOOD's debut album ‘Tales From The Four Seasons’ is an instrumental album. It began life as a short piece entitled Summer written whilst on holiday in Dorset five years ago and became a four suites concept album

Although typically drawn to more heavy arrangements in terms of the use of synthesisers, bass pedals and electric guitars, Flood felt it was important to keep the orchestration and choice of instruments the same as had been used on Summer. The original orchestration has been augmented by the use of piano, upright bass clarinet and drums. Each season is made up of individual movements linked together using short linking passages. The music was inspired by the sights and sounds of the English countryside.

VECTEUR K first album on Unicorn Digital

UNICORN DIGITAL is proud to welcome VECTEUR K into the family.

This album, called La peur du désert (Fear of the desert), released in May 2009 on Unicorn Digital (UNCR 5068), offers a reflexion on the feeling of emptyness expressed by mankind and the perpetual fight for filling it. A rich and pure sound, french lyrics, and a desire to keep arrangements simple in spite of the complexity of some structures gave a very special and unique touch to the album, which may please both progressive and general rock fans. In that way, Vecteur K offers something unique.

Formed of lead singer and guitarist Marc-André Noël, lead guitarist Marc-Antoine Sauvé, keyboard player Jean-François Bernard, bassman Benoît Dalpé and drummer Éric Cournoyer, Vecteur K takes place on the musical scene since 2003. Marc-André, Éric and Benoît are in the adventure since the beginning, while Marc-Antoine joined in 2007, followed by Jean-François in 2008. With explosive compositions and imaging lyrics, they established their own style, without any barrier or limits, between rock and progressive types of music.

RICK MILLER JOINS THE UNICORN FAMILY

UNICORN DIGITAL is proud to welcome Rick Miller into the family and presents his latest Progressive Rock CD falling Through Rainbows

Rick Miller has been composing, producing, performing and recording since the early 80s. Having produced a great deal of instrumental music for various AV productions, in 1982, he released “Starsong,” a new age keyboard, instrumental work that sold over 30,000 copies worldwide..

Throughout the 80s and 90s, Miller gained a great deal of production experience while working at Sound Design Studios in Toronto, then later in his own studio in Lakefield, Ontario, all the while honing his skills as a singer, songwriter.

Early in the new century, Miller turned his attention to his first love, Progressive Rock, the music he grew up listening to. Between 2004 and 2009, he released 4 CDs in the prog rock genre, the latest being “Falling Through Rainbows.” His style can be considered to be about halfway between Pink Floyd and The Moody Blues, and although there is certainly a modern edge to his work, there is no doubt that his major influence comes directly from the 70s. All of Miller’s CDs feature an assortment of guest musicians and singers that typically add their own flavour to each piece they work on.

Rick Miller currently lives and works in Lakefield, Ontario, Canada and is married with 3 teenage children.
