"Live in USA" (2010).
The concept of “The Power Of Two” is based upon the simple idea that two forces working together are more powerful than two separate units working on their own.

Two different repertoires are performed by one single group of people creating an extravaganza of rich textured “wall of sound” that hopefully will find a way to your hearts and minds.

We did a warm-up European tour in September before we packed our bags for two sunny weeks in the U.S.A. The first stop was Los Angeles and the CalProg festival where the drumchair was taken by Nick D'Virgilio. (Spocks Beard,Tears For Fears,Cirque de Soleil,Genesis) With only 6 hours of rehearsal and with almost three hours of dense material to learn, Nick showed how a "true pro" blend in and make it sound like we've been playing together for weeks. Judge for yourselves since all but one track on this disc were recorded from that very first show in Whittier California - October 10th 2009.

Jonas & Roine

The Power Of Two are:

Nad Sylvan - Vocal & Keyboards,
Göran Edman - Vocals, Roine Stolt - Guitars,keyboards & vocal,

Jonas Reingold is to start writing a new Karmakanic album later this year. To get inspiration for the songs he plans to stay at the Chelsea Hotel on West 23rd Street in New York for several weeks and write some new material. The hotel has been a centre of creative and bohemian activity for many years. Bob Dylan, Arthur C. Clarke, Alan Ginsburg and Gregory Corso all composed new work when in residence, while the hotel was used in the 1960s by Janis Joplin, Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, and the Grateful Dead.

Agents Of Mercy

Formed in 2008, AGENTS OF MERCY was originally a side-project by Roine Stolt (guitars, bass, vocals) of The Flower Kings fame, whrere the goal was to create a low key, mostly acoustic based type of music.
Along the way Nad Sylvan (vocals) from Unifaun was invited to participate with vocals. However, one thing lead to another, and pretty soon the two of them found themselves involved in a creation that almost took on a life of it's own - for some reason or other the compositions got longer and longer, more and more progressive rock elements found their way into their creations - pretty soon this had evolved into a collaborative project, and the music had changed from low key and acoustic to anything but low key and highly progressive.

With the participation of several musical friends debut album The Fading Ghosts of Twilight was issued in March 2009. Sylvan and Stolt finished some additional projects following the album release; and are taking this project on the road in the autumn of 2009 - in most cases doing a double bill with another Flower Kings side-projct; Karmakanic.

Goran on debut Signum Regis
Signum Regis was founded by bass player Ronnie König and features Goran Edman. The other members are guitarists Ado Kalaber and Filip Kolus, keyboard player Jan Tupy and drummer Ludek Struhar. It's a brand new band that focuses on melodic rock/metal with many neoclassical elements, obviously influenced by Malmsteen and Rainbow. The songs are of high quality, with long inspired solos, clever guitar themes, and majestic vocals. Give it a try if you like this genre.

New Time Requiem album ('06)
New album of Richard Andersson's Time Requiem with Göran Edman on vocals. This band is more progressive oriented than Richard's other neo-classical oriented projects Space Odyssey and Majestic. This is their 4th release (3 studio and 1 live album) and Jonas plays on 2004's studio album "Inner Circle Of Reality" and co-produced the first two albums. (Check out the discography section.) This album shows stunning musicianship, thrilling guitar and keyboards techniques, brilliant vocals and melodies and is complex enough to shock any classical composer and really cheer up anyone who is into melodic progressive metal.

Solo efforts:

Xsavior; New project by Göran Edman
Caleidoscope is the 2005 debut album of new band XsavioR started by Göran Edman and Benny Jansson. Edman's voice is intriguing and playful as always and it's a real pleasure to listen to his perfectionistic performance that lifts the music a lot. The band sounds very well balanced, as if they have played with each other for years, and also the production is clear and well done. Comparisons can be made with Dream Theater, Shadow Gallery.

Benny Jansson Guitar, Backing Vocals
Matt Norberg - Keyboards
Mathias Garnås - Bass
Daniel Flores - Drums, Backing Vocals
