Project Nightscape, To Sin Against Our Mercies
Based on the series of supernatural thrillers by writer-film director David W. Edwards, this progressive hard rock concept album features the melodic guitar stylings of Grammy-nominee Tony Gaglio. Early reviewers have compared the music favorably to classic Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and Rush. The record includes musical contributions from Vinny Appice (Dio), Mirabai Peart (Joanna Newsom’s band), Tobin Sprout (Guided by Voices) and Pete Trewavas (Marillion). The album’s story concerns an itinerant, nineteenth-century doctor who encounters a blind boy in communication with the dead.
