This Week’s Guest DJ: Tony Kåreid/INTENSUTOPIA

shades-of-faithShades of faith is the second album under the name Intensutopia and is a full blown progressive metal album including everything you would expect from the genre. Drama, mood and landscapes with thick guitars, catchy vocals with a variety of tasty and virtousic musicianship.

Shades of faith is a concept album about abuse of power in religious circuits, which follows the main character from birth through childhood where his parents leave him behind for missionary service. He is sent off to a boarding school where he and his fellow students are treated badly. Frustrated about their situation, which ends in a murder, the kids runaway. The story follows the police investigation while the congregation tries to quiet down the incident. He gives himself up and the story ends where the character reflects over whether or not he might be convicted.

As the record company Via Nocturna says, it should attract fans of Dream Theater and Avantasia amongst others.

Shades of faith was released on October 31st.  Metal Express Radio will give you a 6 tracks preview after the Guest DJ Hour!

Tune in at 15:00 and 21:00 CET/ 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. EST this Friday to hear the show!

    Stig is the founder and the president of Metal Express Radio, based out of Oslo, Norway. He has been around doing Metal radio since the mid-eighties. In fact, running Metal Express Radio takes almost all of his time. Is it worth it...? "Most times, yes," Stig says. "My philosophy is to try to give all Metal releases a fair chance to get promoted in one way or another. As you can imagine, it can be an arduous task to listen through about 20 albums every week! Still, I know we have the best METAL dedicated radio on this planet, and that is a reward in and of itself. I hope one day the whole Metal community can and will make listening to Metal Express Radio part of their daily rituals! Yeah, right..."
