Habitually there should be a couple of years of silence after each Timelock release. Not this time! After the resurrection of Timelock in 2021 and the release of the EP in June, they were re-energized. This energy surge resulted in the release of their fifth full lenth album 'Sygn Yn' with 6 brand new songs including a 19 minute epic.
The now 8-headed band that started in the early nineties, continues to make progressive rock with various twists. Founding members Julian Driessen (keyboards) and Ruud Stoker (vocals) still strive to keep that element in the music. With the solid foundation of Rob Boshuijzen (drums), David Guurink (bass) and the rock roots of Martin Hendriks (guitars) the present album of the re-enforced band is best described as Symphonic Hard Rock.
Arjen van den Bosch (orchestral keyboards), Laura Eradus and Coby van Oorschot (backing & additional vocals) make up a special contribution to the present sound. This really puts an extra dimension to the compositions.
The new album ‘Sygn Yn’ shows the diversity of the possibilities of the improved Timelock. It’s rocking, it’s proggy, sometimes sensitive, surprising, but still recognizable as Timelock.
Since the release of 'Sygn Yn' the band have been working on two major endeavours. The first is the series of rerelease of the complete back catalogue of the band to be released in 2023 and 2023. The completely remastered albums contain previously unreleased material ánd rearranged tracks recorded by the new line-up of the band. The second of course is the recording of the follow-up to 'Sygn Yn'planned for release in 2024.
No hibernation this time for Timelock!
