IMMINENT MUSIC FORCE is proud to announce the 10th Anniversary Remix of the album that Grande Rock called “2013 album of the year”: Thought Chamber’s “Psykerion”.
This Special Edition upgrades the 2013 prog classic with a new sparkling mix by Davide Sgualdini, featuring several alternate performance takes throughout the record, and John Holland’s original art displayed in both a stunning compact disc with 24 pages full color booklet and also an even more stunning double 180 gram vinyl set with full color gatefold jacket and full color inner sleeves.

Michael’s “Psykerion” is a human drama story album with a sci-fi backdrop. A “coming of age” theme of mental and emotional discovery, the storyline is more psychological and philosophical, rather than yet another “Group A blows Group B into hyperspace” sci-fi drama. It explores technology, the universe, space travel, & entertainment, all as they pertain to the future, as well as philosophy, dreamstates, homesickness, childhood memories, and revolving mindstates, all experienced from the eyes of a child named Avakus, wise beyond his years. Kev Roland of Metal Music Archives gave “Psykerion” 5 out of 5 Stars and had this to say:

One of the most essential prog metal albums I have ever come across… majestic…incredible… Complexity, simplicity, melody, discord, lounge, metal, it’s all here. This is the complete package with every musician giving their all. Prog Metal honestly doesn’t get any better than this. Whatever you could ever want from the genre, it’s here, in spades.

Michael Harris

Guitarist & Composer

Immediately upon meeting Davide, I could tell he had the knowledge, work ethic, and enthusiasm that I needed to mix my record. He stayed in touch during the whole process and was very attentive to detail and insistent that myself and brother Brian were pleased with the results every step of the way. Beyond having a fabulous ear for all instruments, Davide truly enjoys what he does, and it shows!

I worked with Davide on my brother Michael Harris’s album “Chemical Compositions”. I was already familiar with Davide’s work on an Antoine Fafard album and was very impressed with the overall mix, and of course the tone of the drums. So when my brother told me that he had hired Davide to mix his album, excited was an understatement. I remember the first mix of a song that we received from Davide and thinking “how could it get any better?”, And then he followed up a day or so later with another mix of the same song for us to compare, to see which mix we liked better, and yes, it was even better than the first mix. I’ve played on over 20 albums in my career and by far this is the best my drums have ever sounded. Huge! With Davide being a drummer himself, he knows how to get big killer drum tones that don’t sound fake. That being said, the drums really cut through on the mix but do not bury anything. Davide was able to bring out every instrument on this recording in an incredible way. He’s got a great ear, a great attitude, great suggestions while mixing, and is willing to put 100% of his talent and knowledge into the mix, and won’t stop until you are happy. Thanks Davide! Hope to do this again!

Any musician will tell you – the mixing process is a crucial part in music production. Davide Sgualdini is a master of the sonic world and can make a huge difference to any project, whichever the musical style is. He continuously dedicates careful attention to the music he works on in order to elevate it to its highest potential. Since I began to work with Davide, my music has never sounded better. I can confidently say that there are two periods in my musical life before and after Studio LaMorte!

The day Antoine Fafard discovered Davide Sgualdini and introduced his work to me was a revelation. What a day of joy that was. Like Ken Scott did for the Mahavishnu Orchestra album “Birds Of Fire”, the approach and sonic vision he brought to the mixing of my drum kit (on the album “Sphere” by Antoine) was entirely stellar, refreshingly exciting and had a real unique character that was instantly, MAJORLY arousing to my ears and spirit. I was astounded. At that point he became the new standard for me – an engineer with whom I look forward to working on many projects together. His expertise and relentless, tireless dedication to whatever he’s working on is only the “icing on the cake” element to his vastly superior abilities as an engineer/producer. Davide’ a rare one. And an equally beautiful guy to work with. I cannot endorse his all around excellence highly enough!
Thank you Davide sir!
