Beneath The Waves features a guest list of Prog Rock’s most respected musicians including Steve Hackett, Gavin Harrison, and Mel Collins. The album is a dark Celtic fairytale set in Ireland at the turn of the 20th century and is about a man whose wife commits suicide, only for them to be reunited in death. Steve Balsamo, recently with Jon Lord’s band, takes on lead vocals. The album is housed in a laminated gatefold sleeve with full colour inners, bringing Geoff Taylor‘s specially commissioned artwork to life.

Steve Hackett (Nylon Guitar): “I really enjoyed playing on ‘Lilly’ as it’s such a pretty song; my part was almost harp-like so it had to be played as softly as possible. I think you have to be prepared to tear up the rule book from time to time and that’s exactly what Rob’s done with Kompendium.”
Gavin Harrison (Percussion): “I had no idea Kompendium would end up as big as it has! I only get involved with music I like and this sounds amazing; it’s a big candidate for a stage show. It’s got a great vocal line and I really hope listeners see it as the prog epic it has become.”
The guest list:
Steve Hackett, Francis Dunnery, Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree), Mel Collins (King Crimson, Camel), Nick Beggs (Steve Wilson, Steve Hackett), Jakko Jakszyk (20th Century Schizoid Band), Troy Donockley (Nightwish), Neil Taylor (Robbie Williams), Nick Barrett (Pendragon), John Mitchell (It Bites, Frost*), BJ Cole (Elton John, Dave Gilmour), Steve Balsamo (Jon Lord, Eric Wolfson), Synergy Vocals (Steve Wilson, Steve Reich), The London Session Orchestra arranged by Dave Stewart, The English Chamber Choir conducted by Guy Protheroe.
