The Anchoret confirmed for ProgPower Europe 2024!

The Anchoret confirmed for ProgPower Europe 2024!

We are extremely happy to announce that the international project The Anchoret will perform their live debut at ProgPower Europe 2024!

We had the honor of premiering the jewel of an album “It All Began With Loneliness” back in June 2023!  The Anchoret is a progressive metal project that combines prog rock sensibilities with modern metal energy. Mixing fusion sax, flute solos, mellotron vibes and heavy riffs. It All Began With Loneliness” offers a unique soundscape that won over many fans of heavy music and progressive goodness, featuring this jewel of an album on many lists right at the top of the best music in 2023! Featuring Andy Tillison (The Tangent), James Christopher Knoerl (Aviations, Gargoyl) and Sylvain Auclair (Heaven’s Cry, Karcius) among others.

Eduard Levitsky, mastermind behind this jewel comments:

It All Began With Loneliness” is all about new beginnings, connections, and honesty. The album was written during a period of uprootedness, where I felt isolated from the world in a new city, during a pandemic, and completely alone with my own thoughts. There was no band, and I couldn’t share the struggle or complain. So the songs became a way for me to reach out, connect, and share during that time, to connect with music that I grew up with, connect with friends old and new, and, in a way, reconnect with myself too.

Musically, the album is an uncompromising, honest love letter to the bands and albums that helped me through some of the toughest times. Though it does not shy away from wearing its many inspirations on its sleeve, each song has a piece of myself embedded in it. Even though the album was ultimately recorded during a disconnected world, I think that some of that honesty resonated with the amazing musicians I was lucky enough to work with, and they’ve delivered some of the best moments throughout the album! Sylvain Auclair (Karcius, Heaven’s Cry) really brought the songs to life – he was the last gatekeeper on the album and had the monumental task of putting words to the musical journey.
