'The Ghost Xperiment – AwakenIng' is based on an actual documented paranormal
experiment. The main character in the story, created by frontman Andy Kuntz, is Gideon
Grace, who must constantly fight for his life against the relentless shadows of the 'House of
Rain' as he wanders through France. Burdened with a heavy weight of sorrow following the
agonizing death of his beloved Ivy, Gideon's pain is also the driving force in a war with his
demons. He expands his knowledge with books he finds in the library of a German school of
metaphysics and it is there that he reads about secret teachers and parapsychological
experiments, which become an important foundation from which he can fight against the
creatures of darkness. After the first showdown with these demons, rather than finding
peace, the insights Gideon learns from this fight tear open a hole deep into the abyss of
Hell...
The album was once again a product of the trusted collaboration with sound engineer
Markus Teske at Bazement Studios.
The addition of 'Awakening' in the album title hints that this album is the first part of an
exciting concept. The continuation, 'The Ghost Xperiment - IIIumination,' is expected to be
released in fall 2020.
Between their last two studio releases, Vanden Plas composed the highly successful rock
opera 'Everyman,' performing it over 60 times at theaters in Kaiserslautern, Münster,
Innsbruck, and Pforzheim. In addition, 2017 saw the release of the live CD/DVD 'The Seraphic
Live Works,' and in July 2019 the elegantly designed boxset 'The Epic Works 1991-2015'
appeared, containing every album produced in that time period. In between, Vanden Plas
performed in the Wiesbaden Staatstheater's 2017-18 production of the rock opera 'Jesus
Christ Superstar.' The band's engine is running at top speed, to say the least.
