Musician and composer Andreas Nergård has released an album teaser under the moniker Nergard for his upcoming Metal Musical Memorial for a Wish.
The musical has been in the works for two years, and will be released as two albums. The first one has just been mixed and mastered. The release date is yet to be determined.
The story of Memorial for a Wish is set to Dublin, Ireland, in 1890: The young man Peter O’Donnell is arrested and wrongfully accused for a burglary which he did not commit. After a short trial he is sentenced to prison for twenty years. In desperation he is forced to leave his pregnant wife behind and live in solitude behind the prison walls. Twenty long years passes by and Peter is released from jail, only to find out that his beloved wife died many years ago while giving birth to their daughter. The friends he once had turn their backs on him and let him face the grief all alone. This eventually tears him apart. As the hands of sorrow and despair becomes too much to handle he ends up committing suicide.
