The Antechamber Of Being Part 1 – CD

(6 customer reviews)


The much anticipated debut solo album from the band’s main composer and keys player Stewart Bell, is a prog rock opera featuring five vocalists; Simone Rossetti, Arjen Lucassen, Bekah Mhairi Comrie, Phil Allen and Stewart himself. The story is based on his own experiences as a lifelong lucid dreamer and follows the adventures of a young boy as he grows up and masters the ability to control his dreams. (If you’d like your copy signed by Stewart Bell please request this in order notes at the checkout page)

A 28 page picture book entitled “The Cupboard of Fear” is available seperately. This 23 x 18 cm full colour storybook chronicles the events from the first song on this epic concept album. It contains 12 original drawings by Stewart Bell and tells the story of the main character, The Dreamer, as he takes control of his dreams and becomes lucid for the first time.
