It was a 93 minute show with several guests musicians to showcase the songs as they were recorded on the album. Already, the album has received several positive reviews on various Progressive rock webzines and magazines.

Tom MacLean (Haken, To-Mera, Euphonia UK)

"Listening to 'Beyond the Seventh Wave' takes me back to those classic prog rock albums by bands such as Kansas, Yes, Genesis, Marillion, IQ etc. during their 80s periods.

The production is immaculate and spacious, with one foot in the past (walls of analog synths) and one in the future."

Les Dougan (Aragon)

"Bloody bastards...This is a brilliant album......I'm Jealous"

We hope you will join us all to enjoy the first public performance of the new album "Beyond the Seventh Wave".

Beyond the Seventh Wave is a concept album of more than 60 minutes with as theme the hunger for freedom so common to man kind. It is based and inspired by books and movies of people being innocently convicted such as "Escape from Alcatraz", "Fugitive" and "The Next Three Days".  But most of all, it is inspired by the story of Papillion, a Frenchman convicted for life forced labor for a crime he did not commit. He escaped several times but was destined to live his days on "Devil Island". Would he finally escape?

Silhouette is very excited about the upcoming release. We believe this album is better than anything we have done so far, with long epics ("Web of Lies", "Lost Paradise"), heavy stuff ("Escape"), symphonic expeditions ("Devils Island") and singalong songs that we might even release as singles in autumn 2014 ("In Solitary" and "Wings to Fly")

We are also proud to announce that we have quite an impressive list of guest musicians playing on the album, including Ton Scherpenzeel (Kayak, Camel), Ruben van Kruistum, Laura ten Voorde (Adeia) and Tamara van Koetsveld (Dutch Royal Airforce Orchestra).
