Classic Rock, AOR, Arena Rock, Expanded edition CD kiadvány, 2018.
A svéd együttes második stúdió lemeze.
“Breath Of Ages” is the highly anticipated and long awaited follow-up to Sapphire Eyes’ self-titled debut album, one of the AOR highlights of 2012. For the second album, songwriter and keyboard player Niclas Olsson joined forces with new vocalist Kimmo Blom (Urban Tale, Heartplay, Leverage), while many musicians from the debut, like Anette Olzon (Alyson Avenue, ex-Nightwish), Mike Andersson (Cloudscape, Fullforce) and Sven Larsson (Street Talk, Raintimes, Lionville) make a welcome return. The CD version of “Breath Of Ages” (including one bonus track) will be available in record stores worldwide on September 28, 2018.
Initially the foundation for the band was the trio of Niclas Olsson (keyboards, songwriting, production), Fredrik Eriksson (drums) and Mikey K Nilsson (guitars), who were all members of Alyson Avenue at some point. In Emil Knabe (guitars) and eventually Christer Engholm (bass), the guys found two kindred spirits, who already played together in a Swedish band called Acacia in the 80s. Interestingly enough the two hadn’t seen each other in almost 30 years before they met again in the SE rehearsal room.
