“To play the unplayed” is drummer/producer Thomas Lang's self-proclaimed aspiration. His sophomore solo release, 'Something Along Those Lines' - a cumultive 4-year effort whose writing and recording spanned 2 continents - is a contemporary hybrid sound of “chill out” jazz and progressive rock punctuated by shredding guitars and blasting drum beats.
“For lack of a better term this album is a bit of a ‘muso-musing,‘” says Lang.”
Integral to the eclectic sound of 'Something Along Those Lines' are various guest musicians including: seminal heavy metal guitar legend Bill Liesegang (Iron Maiden/Nina Hagen); keyboard genius Christian Lohr (Gianna Nannini/Paulina Rubio) and guitarists Torsten de Winkel and Steve Jones among others.
“In the time it took me to finish this album, my life has changed immensely, says Lang.“ There has been love, loss, birth, death, comings and goings -- and it‘s all represented here.“ When asked what does “it” all sound like?
