Elements Kompendium cd
Magenta mainman Rob Reed has launched a companion edition of his award-winning Kompendium album Beneath The Waves. It includes a new version of the track A Moment Of Clarity, featuring vocalists Steve Balsamo and Tesni Jones.
 
The 2012 record features guest appearances by Steve Hackett, Francis Dunnery, Gavin Harrison, Nick Beggs, Jakko Jakszyk and many others and it was named Best Album of 2012 by the Classic Rock Society.
 
Beneath The Waves: Elements offers a new look at the concept album, presenting over two hours of music including unreleased songs, demos and alternate takes, plus a fully-instrumental mix of the original work.
 
Reed tells Prog: "It took over 3 years to make the album, which meant the songs went through some pretty drastic musical transformations. Some were even dropped from the finished album due to time constraints.
 
"Elements showcases those tracks for the first time, alongside material that shows the development and musical building blocks of the original album. It's a fascination companion to the Beneath The Waves itself."
