It took (Beyond The Labyrinth mastermind) Geert Fieuw 11 years to write the concept album ‘Castles in the Sand’, another 10 months of preparation, 9 musicians and 3 months to actually record it.

This musical masterpiece -a future classic- is an intense roller coaster of emotions, feelings, variety, imagination and excitement that takes 53:45 min to listen to … but a lifetime to enjoy and explore!

​

“No Place For A Dreamer” (MS demo 2008)

MS stands for Myspace. However to avoid confusion with other digital platforms, it had to be shortened to “MS”

An early demo of the song, already showcasing its strength.

Jo De Boeck - Vocals

Geert Fieuw – Song Writing, Guitars, Keyboards and Midi Programming

​

“Time To Fly” (Single Edit) 

was Beyond The Labyrinth ’s very first iTunes single beginning of November 2008. Once the yearly costs of maintaining digital distribution through Tunecore surfaced, it got taken down. 

This is the edited version as featured on the youtube clip. The video clip itself, that was another story : recorded in October 2007, the director didn’t manage to find time to edit it in time and Geert retrieved the tapes, edited it himself and released it in March 2008, just after the “Pure Sabotage” clip.

​

“Pure Sabotage” (Single Edit)

With the album released, the question was which song was to be the next promotional single. It was a difficult decision between “No Place For A Dreamer” and “Pure Sabotage”. 

With the band having taped the whole release show concert with only 2 cameras, the footage of  “No Place For A Dreamer” having featured live guests Kirsten Fernandez-Suarez and Frédéric Ost was not sufficient. Additional video footage shot in the recording studio for “Pure Sabotage” and turned into black and white was the right solution. 

​

For Eternity (Alternative Version)

features a full drum part by Bruno Goedhuys in stead of the digital drums on the album version, and an electric guitar solo in stead of an acoustic one
