Dorian Operas „Crusade“ is an epic piece telling a story full of war
and romance, loss, grief and hope. With racing speed this drama takes
you along on an adventures journey, which is perfectly represented by
the music. Constant restlessness, war and tempests are pictured and
driven into a dramatic climax through complex and impulsive
The new concept album is based on a true event from the European
medieval history: in the year of 1212, some thousands of French and
German young people made their way to the Holy Land – the event
which later became known as the Children's Crusade; this journey
was at times just torterous,and had ended up in a disaster .

More reviews of this CD:
"The level of musicianship displayed here is rather stunning and outstanding,
powerful musical interactions, well thought out songs that feature some
really interesting time changes that is married by what can only be described
as outstanding dexterity from all the participants. This is a band that plays
high energy music, tearing their instruments up with style. We are talking
about a band that has brought all their elements together, taking influence
from the likes of Dream Theater, Symphony X and classic bands such as Yes,
Rush and ELP and adding baroque, classical, renaissance and medieval music
into the mix. This can only lead to an exercise in high craftsmanship placed in
the right hands; these are the hands and the band don’t disappoint..."
