As you might remember, some members of the German Spock's Beard community http://www.thebearded.de
are currently producing a progressive rock double-CD which will be released in spring 2007 (we are aiming for a release at the beginning of June).
The album's title is The Bearded's Project: HOPE | OMID. (Omid is the Afghan word for hope.)
All the incoming money will be given to a very successful aid organization, the German Aid For Afghan Children (www.aid-for-afghan-children.de
). This private organization founded, in cooperation with the population, several so called Peace-Schools in this crisis region. In December 2006, they received a renowned award for their excellent work.
One of the highlights of the album is a 41-minute epic, written and performed by several posting members of the board. There will be a contribution from a famous prog artist.
Please check the homepage of the project: http://www.thebeardedsproject.de
You can stream a few songs there, including a part of the epic.
It would be much appreciated if you sign the guestbook and let us know what you think of the idea and the music.
You can already pre-order the album through the homepage. Shipping costs will depend on your country and the number of CD’s you want.
The CD will also be available through the InsideOut webshop.
