Lui Krieg & The Alchemysts of Sound Continue their Ascent with Spirit Rise!
Fresh from sending heads spinning with their last single, Upside Down, Lui Krieg and the Alchemysts of Sound return with another track packed with urgency and power, Spirit Rise! Combining Lui’s utterly unique mix of classic rock, spirituality and mysticism, it’s the perfect introduction to a front man reverentially dubbed, “The Crystal King” and a band which features legendary Cosmic Percussionist and producer extraordinaire, Paul Foss! The title track from the band’s album, Spirit Rise, like the rising phoenix you will be energised, inspired and ignited after listening!
It is written in the stars that Lui should take to the stage as a rock star – after all, this is a man who is known worldwide for his sparkling rocks! The rocks in question are crystals and gemstones. It is in the world of the spiritual and mystical that Lui has spent his life, journeying from his homeland in Germany to South-East Asia, Africa, South America and finally to where he now calls home, Glastonbury, The Isle of Avalon. Establishing himself as the go-to guru for all things Crystaline, Shamanic and Magical, he now turns to a passion that has burned within him throughout his life – Rock Music. The Alchemysts of Sound are vocalist Lui and drummer, multi-instrumentalist and producer, Paul. They are supported by the guitar legend Kit Morgan, (famed for his work with Jethro Tull’sIan Anderson and Curved Air) and the powerful voice of Zoe Munroe. Lui is ready to live his dream, bringing the spirit of rock to a new audience.
Lui regularly turns heads in Glastonbury and on his travels all around the world, as startled onlookers confuse him with legendary Led Zep frontman, Robert Plant.
Lui himself explains the background to Spirit Rise:
“Spirit Rise is actually the first song I ever wrote! I used to perform it in meditation classes - just my voice and a hang-drum! It was at a much slower pace, so we decided to speed it up and give it a bit of a Billy Idol twist and now it rocks! The combination of me doing some Native American chanting and Kit Morgan’s classic guitar solos, it’s an exciting and powerful rock track.
The song reflects the state our world and the urgent need to bring “Spirit” back into our lives. We are getting more and more disconnected! Let the waters run free! Fires may be burning everywhere but from the ashes the Phoenix will rise again! Let the Spirit Rise!”
