Dispyria release the cover artwork and track listing of their new studio album “The Story of Marion Dust”, which will be released on February 10th, 2023.
Artwork is made by Timo Wuerz (Adidas, Daimler, Disney, Marvel, DC Comics).
“The Story of Marion Dust” is the third concept album about the protagonist Josh Devon and his fight against his demons. An essential role plays the girl Marion Dust, who is the focus of the new album. It is about the fatal fate of the girl who – confronted with supernatural powers – has to decide which path she will take in the future to use these powers for good or evil.
Mastermind and composer Juergen Walzer succeeded in winning Zak Stevens (Savatage, Trans-Siberian Orchestra), as well as Ralf Scheepers (Primal Fear) and Carsten “Lizard” Schulz (Lazarus Dream) for the vocals on this grandiose concept album. Other guest musicians are Markus Pfeffer (Lazarus Dream) and Dezperadoz guitarist Wolfgang Sing.
