KHYMERA - The Grand Design [Japanese Edition] (2015)

To be released by Frontiers Music in few days, the long awaited fourth album of the KHYMERA project entitled “The Grand Design” has just been released in Japan with a bonus track.

While the KHYMERA project started out as an alliance between Italian
producer / musician Daniele Liverani and then Kansas singer Steve Walsh,
it actually developed into a regular musical project when Pink Cream 69
/ Unisonic bassist and producer Dennis Ward came into the picture.
While known as a bass player, Dennis always sung background vocals with
his bands, so it was quite interesting for many fans to hear his voice
taking the lead on the Khymera albums 'A New Promise' and 'The Greatest
While the project went on hiatus for some time, it was a natural choice
now for Dennis to grab the reins and take complete control (both on the
songwriting – together with Paul Logue and Michael Klein - and on the
production side) of the new album, “The Grand Design”, which comes 7
years after the release of “The Greatest Wonder”.

“Everything changed this time!” says Dennis Ward. “First of all there
were no songs written by outside writers, just the people involved in
the recordings and Paul.
I wrote all the melodies and lyrics this time, something I had not done
on the previous KHYMERA albums, but regardless it was a very comfortable
working situation.”

The band is also totally “new”. Other than Ward, no other old members
performed on the album. “I was on tour playing with Unisonic in Europe
and Japan” tells Dennis, “we had a double headlining bill with Edguy and
I was really impressed by Felix Bohnke’s drumming. He’s a fan of AOR
and was more than happy to participate to the new KHYMERA album, which
was great because his style fits so well.

Whilst collaborating on one song with Paul Logue (EDEN’S CURSE), he came
up with an idea to have a certain type of choir in the song which he
worked out with Pete Newdeck. I was so impressed by the choirs Pete
made and how they fit to my voice that I asked him to be Khymera’s
“backing vocalist”. His choir ideas greatly impacted the entire outcome
of the album.
“A couple songs ideas that Paul Logue presented had beautiful pianos in
them,” continues Dennis. “I too had a piano song and asked Paul who
played his piano parts in. He told me of Jim Rykbost, whom I’ve never
worked with.
Jim is a down to earth Piano player, not just a keyboarder. With all due
respect to many pop/rock keyboarders the true art of playing the Piano
seems to get lost these days. Jim had the feel and the mood I was
looking for and took the songs to another level. Since I also needed
keys I quickly got into contact with Eric Ragno, someone I’ve worked
with in the past and has so much experience and class in AOR. I love
his modern approach to building AOR keyboard parts.”

Musically, the new album very much follows along the logical progression
of the musical path that was started a few years ago. “The Grand
Design” is a strong, extremely melodic release, which showcases the
fantastic vocal abilities of Dennis and highlights his great skills as a
songwriter and producer.

“The Grand Design” truly offers one of the most shining examples of what
great European Melodic Rock is all about: crystal clear production,
soaring vocals, killer musicianship and songwriting that reminds fans of
the heydays of the genre when bands like Giuffria, New England, Icon
and Signal ruled the airwaves.
