|Omschrijving||Dutch/British melodic and progressive rock act
Dilemma pulled a phoenix stunt on us and has risen
from the ashes! Since their last gig in April 2012
the band disappeared from the public eye. But
behind the scenes these guys have been busy with
their new studio album: ‘Random Acts Of
Liberation’, which has been mixed by Rich Mouser
(Spock’s Beard, Transatlantic, Neal Morse).
Founder and keyboardist Robin Z is still an
important part of the team. So is drummer Collin
Leijenaar (Kayak, Neal Morse, Dave Bainbridge,
Affector), who handled the production side of
things this time. The band today consists
furthermore of British guitarist/vocalist/front man
Declan ‘Dec’ Burke (Frost*, Audioplastik, Darwin’s
Radio), guitarist Paul Crezee and bass player Erik
van der Vlis.
Dilemma is no stranger to the melodic and
progressive rock landscape. In the late 90’s the
band’s distinctive sound led to a record deal with
SI Music/Roadrunner Music. Debut album ‘Imbroccata’
became a fact and was met with high praise,
especially in Japan.
While the band existed on and off through the
years, Dilemma played well known Dutch venues like
013, Tilburg and Boerderij, Zoetermeer. After a
disbandment the Dutch prog/symfo magazine iO Pages
asked Dilemma in 2012 for a special one-off reunion
show during the iO Pages Festival. This was in a
matter of fact a breath of fresh air that sparked a
continuation. But during the recording process for
a new album singer Danny Butler decided to
discontinue. It seemed the end for Dilemma…
However, the band secretly decided to reset and
start over while keeping the same moniker. Now with
a completely rewritten and newly recorded album,
and with Dec Burke as their new front man, there’s
no question left: Dilemma is here to stay for the
long run and ‘Random Acts Of Liberation’ paves the
way for a whole new journey.
With songs ranging from 3 to over 12 minutes, the
listener is in for a wild and dynamic ride! The
surprising time signatures and enchanting guitar
solos aside; Dilemma is all about liberating
melodies and feel. ‘Random Acts Of Liberation’ will
give you 72 minutes of just that (and more).
Hearing is believing!
