2014 - 2015 Cleopatra- The Crown of Isis



After a period of over two years preparing and recording the new rock opera is finally released. The double album (the band's third within ten years time!) is financed partly by a crowdfunding campaign. Kayak allows fans to participate and invest in the new production, and in return band members are involved in special actions, like a unique semi-acoustic concert for an audience of 50, the possibility to get one's name in the liner notes of the album booklet, or getting the album delivered at home by Ton and Irene. The CD features several guest vocalists: Martin van der Starre, Alexander van Breemen, Marjolein Teepen (who had been part of the Nostradamus-cast in 2005) and Greek singer Tatiana Manolidou.
 
To everyone's suprise singers Cindy Oudshoorn and Edward Reekers announce that they will leave Kayak after the last gig in 2014. The news comes only a few weeks before the release and upcoming club tour. Though their decision will obviously have quite an impact on the band's future, Ton Scherpenzeel makes it clear that it does not mean Kayak will call it a day as well, but mentions no concrete plans to present a new line up any time soon.
 
In regards to developing 'Cleopatra- The Crown of Isis' as a spectacle to theaters or special events in the new year it will not make a big difference: for Cindy and Edward's respective roles as Cleopatra and The Sicilian replacements will be found.
 
In March 2015 Kayak (Ton Scherpenzeel, Rob Vunderink, Joost Vergoossen, Jan van Olffen and Sjoerd Rutten, replacing Hans Eijkenaar) & Guests (with Marjolein Teepen and Rolf Koster replacing Cindy and Edward) perform the rock opera at a special outside event on the Dutch island of Texel for a crowd of 1500 people that endure the cold and windy weather to watch and listen to this unique show. The band and guests are joined by a regional choir and two dancers, and the story itself is enhanced by video images that were especially made for the show.

Fossil Evolution (Belgium) / Fossil Evolution - Biography
« on: November 19, 2015, 06:33:55 AM »
The story of Fossil Evolution started nearly 40 years ago when 5 young guys from East Flanders (Belgium) formed the band Isopoda. Nucleus of the band were the two brothers Dirk and Arnold De Schepper, Geert Amant (later succeeded by Luc van Hove), Marc Van Der Schueren and Walter De Berlangeer. The band were often referred to as the 'Belgian Genesis'. They released two albums between 1978 and 1982 before disbanding. In 2004 Isopoda reunited shortly for a couple of live concerts.

The reunion however was short lived although they kept in touch and in 2013 Isopoda reunited again. This time the band line-up was extended with two of the three sons of Arnold. Some months before, Arnold had started a band with his sons, Arne (drums), Maarten (guitar, keyboards, vocals) and Wouter (guitar, vocals). Luc Vanhove would have joined their band but he sadly passed away in 2013 and the line-up was completed by one of the boy’s school friends Pieter De Groeve (keyboards). Fossil Evolution was born.

The music of Fossil Evolution is based on the symphonic progressive rock of the 70's and the neo-progressive rock of the 80's. But the adolescents added their own influences to the music. The music is a beautiful blend of progressive rock with, pop, rock and jazz. The band started off live in a packed venue in their home town before writing and recording for their first album.

Originally intending to record an EP the band recorded 4 songs. After signing to their label it was decided that a full album was going to be released. 'World in Motion' was released on 24 October, 2014. The artwork is based on pictures made by guitarist Maarten and his mum Hilde. So you can say this is really a family album! The album consists of 5 original tracks and 1 fully reworked adaptation of the Isopoda classic 'Considering'.
