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!
