ALMANAC - »Tsar« out now; tour kicks off! - 2016-03-18

2016-03-18 - “Victor Smolski succeeds again with »Tsar« where power
and elegance are no way inferior to RAGE and LMO!“

METAL MANIAC (I), Romano Depolo

“One of the best pieces of music made by Victor Smolski. It’s the next step for the power metal history. Best modern way how to play classic metal style!“
SPARK (CZ), David Havlena

“This impressive record breathes freedom, yet it is a marriage between classic and
metal that really rocks heavily… Kudos for the heaviness,
the vocal abundance and the overwhelming guitar skills of Victor!“

ROCK TRIBUNE (B), Vera Matthijssens

After 15 years and 10 CDs as guitarist, producer and composer for the German heavy metal institution RAGE, Victor Smolski now continues his musical career with his new group ALMANAC; a new musical concept combining heavy metal with classical music, songs written especially for a band and orchestra plus several male and female singers sharing the lead vocal job. The Belarus-born guitarist Smolski is joined in this new group by former LMO band members Jeanette Marchewka (vocals) and the symphony orchestra Orquestra Barcelona Filharmonia. New in the line up are bass player Armin Alic, drummer Michael Kolar and keyboardist Enric Garcia. Two high-class singers David Readman (PINK CREAM 69) and Andy B. Franck (BRAINSTORM) complete the extremely prominent line up. For all the members of ALMANAC, »Tsar« is a new, exciting, and very interesting chapter. Traditional metal in conjunction with classical music, world music and elements of Russian folklore with a modern sound all make ALMANAC a compelling and absolute listening experience.

In support of their new album, the band will be touring Europe as special guest with ORDEN OGAN and MANIMAL from today onwards. Find all dates below!
