The Man in the Iron Mask (feat. Oliviero Lacagnina)
The Samurai of Prog
The Samurai of Prog clan is back with another triumph, barely months since the March release of "The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up."
Steve Unruh has been notably industrious, contributing significantly to United Progressive Fraternity's recent 2-hour album release as well (check out our review).
"The Man in the Iron Mask" is another remarkable album from The Samurai of Prog, possibly one of their finest. We heavily featured "The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up" on Prog Radio, and this new album is also slated for substantial airtime.
Perhaps the best-conceptualized album by The Samurai of Prog, "The Man in the Iron Mask" smoothly transitions between epic prog instrumentals and Steve's captivating storytelling vocals.
