At last, XXV, the long awaited CD from heavy proggers Pallas is released featuring new vocalist Paul Mackie. It is the sequel to the band's Sentinel album. The theme chosen was what would have happened after the optimistic celebratory ending of The Sentinel had been corrupted by human nature and the Sentinels returned to take their experiment to its ultimate completion. Thus XXV was born. During the progress of the writing and rehearsing, a decision was made to replace Alan Reed with locally based Paul Mackie. The set includes a CD of 10 tracks and DVD of 6 tracks filmed at Loreley "The Rock Entertainment."
