'The Prophet's Dance' is emotionally poignant, and the messages and symbolism of the lyrics are profoundly touching.
The German musician and multi-instrumentalist Johannes RÃ¶sgen, aka JOHNROSE, returns two years after his last Melodic Rock single 'Toward The Sun', with his extraordinary new album 'The Prophet's Dance'. On the full-length, which will be released on 12/08/2023 via Dr. Music Records, the Rhineland-Palatinate artist lets the mysticism of Rhine Romanticism shine in new splendor. Sophisticated, melodic and timelessly beautiful Rock music full of imagination and depth, wrapped in a warm and powerful sound, forms the musical cosmos of JOHNROSE. Thereby, he falls back on his longtime experience in Prog and Rock cover bands and inspires besides the high-class instrumentation with subtle lyrics. The Rock Poet from the Middle Rhine wanders unerringly between the musical spheres of melodic Prog, AOR and elegant Art Pop so that each of the twelve songs sounds unmistakably like JOHNROSE. The album was subsequently mastered by Stefan Noltemeyer (e.g. Meat Loaf, Santana, Earth Wind & Fire) in Berlin. Visually, the Digipak CD is also a real eye-catcher thanks to the filigree artwork by Thomas Ewerhard (e.g. Avantasia, Neal Morse, Volbeat), perfectly visualizing the album's spirit. 'The Prophet's Dance' is for music lovers who appreciate Rock with charisma and personality, as played by Pink Floyd, Manfred Mann's Earth Band, Toto or even Kate Bush.
Johannes RÃ¶sgen began his musical career in the mid-1970s in the school band Flashbolt and earned his first spurs as the Prog Rock group Athis guitarist. He also fronted Giant For A Day and opened for legends like Manfred Mann's Earth Band and Alan Parsons.
The album is emotionally poignant, and the messages and symbolism of the lyrics are profoundly touching, leaving the listener entirely lost in the music. At the same time, everything is wonderfully woven into a warm, thoughtful soundscape with musical elements from the last four decades of sophisticated Rock music.
