Album Release 21. Mai 2024 - PREORDER

"Seven Steps to the Green Door" are back! With their 6th album, the German progressive crossover band led by Marek Arnold (e.g. Artrock Project, Toxic Smile, CYRIL, Damanek) and Ulf Reinhardt completes their "?" trilogy with the final chapter "The Truth".

The highly acclaimed first chapter ("The?BOOK") of the Magnum Opus, consisting of a profound, critical story about religious fanaticism by Thoralf Koss - provided with a complete storybook by American author George Andrade - and a multi-layered musical realization, almost as a "rock opera", in the crossroads of art rock to progressive metal, was released back in 2011.  The second part followed in 2019 with "THE?LIE", the heaviest and darke part of the concept in terms of both music and lyrics.

Now, 15 years after work on the Opus began, "THE?TRUTH" concludes the story of Samuel and his father with the most stylistically diverse part. A veritable firework of musical ideas, exciting arrangements and a total of 12 characters / singers, including well-known guests such as Peter Jones (Camel, Tiger Moth Tales), Manuel Schmid (Stern Combo Meissen), Larry B. (Toxic Smile) and Elisabeth Markstein (Alphaville).  Impressively, a last, big exclamation mark is set.

"The Truth" will not only be released on CD as usual on 21 May 2024 - the trilogy will also be released as an elaborate "Artbook" in vinyl format with all 3 albums on CD and a complete, extensive printed history including lyrics.


The pre-order starts immediately - of course there will be the usual "gimmick" with story reference.

Tracklist:

1. Revelations 5:21
2. Africa 15:31  
3. Hearing Voices 5:15
4. Alpha & Omega III 9:00
5. The Arrest 3:02
6. Hallucinations 6:18
7. Hearts On Strings 8:56
8. When You Get To See Me 4:14
9. Hear My Voice 6:29
10. A Dream That Stayed 7:32
