DISPYRIA have released the eagerly awaited first video featuring Zak Stevens (Savatage, Trans Siberian Orchestra).
Digital Single: Blue Mirror – Dispyria feat. Zak Stevens | Save-It
The legendary singer himself is very impressed:
Zak: “It’s always challenging and rewarding performing songs composed by Juergen Walzer for Dispyria. In my opinion, this is very powerful prog metal with an intense storyline. I had a great time recording the vocals and shooting the video for “Blue Mirror”. My wife Katherine wrote to the lyrics to this song and four others on the album that I performed vocals on. “Blue Mirror” talks about the ability of Marion, the main character, to physically dive into a blue mirror and experience a real and different reality apart from her very difficult real life. The lyrics make it a deep journey, so it was really cool working on this. The story is very deep.”
This also marks the start of the pre-sale, which of course offers a small special feature for pre-orderers.
“DISPYRIA – The Story Of Marion Dust” is the third concept album about the protagonist Josh Devon and his fight against his demons. An essential role plays the girl Marion Dust, who is the focus of the new album. It is about the fatal fate of the girl who – confronted with supernatural powers – has to decide which path she will take in the future to use these powers for good or evil.
Mastermind and composer Juergen Walzer succeeded in winning Zak Stevens (SAVATAGE, Trans-Siberian Orchestra) as well as Ralf Scheepers (Primal Fear) and Carsten “Lizard” Schulz (Lazarus Dream) for the vocals on this grandiose concept album. Other guest musicians are Markus Pfeffer (Lazarus Dream) and Dezperadoz guitarist Wolfgang Sing.
Musically, the album ranks between Avantasia and Savatage, A masterpiece of progressive metal – without seeming playful or losing itself in itself – with eight gripping songs that tell a poignant story.

02 – The Mark
03 – Blue Mirror
