Limited to just 300 copies and pressed on heavyweight vinyl with a full colour lyric insert, this is a first ever appearance on vinyl for the third Unitopia album “Artificial”.
Unitopia take traditional progressive rock and give it a fresh lick of paint and although this is a concept album of sorts, its main claim to prog fame is the thirteen and half minute centrepiece Tesla. It’s based on the life and work of influential Serbian inventor Nikola Tesla who had an obsession with the number three, a reoccurring theme during the album. Elsewhere Nothing Lasts Forever is a cleverly constructed homage to The Beatles both lyrically and musically with Mellotron adding a psychedelic touch in the style of Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds and I Am The Walrus. ark Trueack (United Progressive Fraternity) and Sean Timms (Southern Empire) provide the driving force on this modern classic, long overdue for a release in this format.
