Laser's Edge signs Germany's Eloy for 40th Anniversary Release

Ken Golden, President of Laser's Edge Group, announces the addition of historic German Progressive Rock band Eloy to the Laser's Edge label.

Laser's Edge Records will exclusively release Visionary in North America, the band's first studio album in over 10 years, on January 12, 2010. Visionary celebrates the 40th Anniversary of Eloy, Germany's most successful and prized progressive rock group.

Eloy was formed in 1969 by Hanover guitarist Frank Bornemann. The band has released numerous albums but are best known for 1977's Ocean, which remains its best selling album. Although Eloy have not been active as a band since 1998, the demand for their music is still remarkable. Their work has had a significant impact on the history of rock, and many a journalist, as well as numerous fans, consider them to be one of the best progressive rock bands ever.

The band's music continues to be rediscovered. It fascinates and touches many fans with its emotional, complex symphonic rock-music with atmospheric sound creations, pulsating rhythms and massive guitars, combined with lyrics which escape irrelevance, performed in a way to transport the listener to another world.

The strong feedback from all parts of the world eventually reached the musicians themselves. It encouraged Bornemann, lead singer, guitarist and producer of ELOY, to bring the band together again for a 40th anniversary reunion. After a break of eleven years, they have launched the new album Visionary, which recaptures the spirit of the early years.

I am merely an egg in such matters, but my friend Jason's dad will FLIP when he hears of a new Eloy record coming down the pipe. :Smokedev:

BTW, Ken, kudos to your recommendation of Future Kings of England and Oresund Space Collective, as I'm enjoying both. The latter sound a lot like Hidria Spacefolk (and by extension Ozric Tentacles), which is always a Good Thing. :kickass:

Not on our storefront yet. Official street date for North America will be 1/12/10. I'll have it available for sale on our site end of November so people can grab it for Christmas.

I'll be updating info on our label site,, as we have more to say.
