Johannes Maria Knoll – Transcended

Johannes Maria Knoll – Transcended

After 25 years of working with various international artists, Austian guitar player Johannes Maria Knoll decided to step into the front row to release his first instrumental – guitar – album titled “transcended”. He is joined by two incredible musicians: Christian Eigner (Depeche Mode) on drums and Gerald Schaffhauser (House of Riddim, Lukascher…) on bass.

The 17 (mainly Rock -) songs pay homage to „The Holy Bible“ with all it´s force, it´s darkness, it´s distortion, it´s epic broadness, it´s catastrophies, it´s brutality, it´s treasons, it´s light, it´s cleanness, it´s philosophy, it´s morality, it´s hope, it´s glory, it´s power, it´s kindness, it´s wisdom, it´s truth, it´s salvation and it´s love
