GARY HUGHES - Once and Future King, Part 1 & 2 (2003)
Gary Hughes is an English hard rock singer, songwriter and musician. Apart from his work as a solo artist, Gary Hughes is the front man and main songwriter of Hard Rock/Melodic Rock band Ten. He has also worked as a producer and songwriter for Bob Catley's first three solo albums, as well as Hugo's first album and has appeared on Vinny Burns' The Journey solo album and on the Ayreonauts Only album by the band Ayreon.
Gary Hughes's Once and Future King joins Missa Mercuria as one of the absolute best of the new breed of rock operas. This superb release is based on the Legend of King Arthur and is split up into two parts. Part I features the following players: Gary Hughes (Ten) as Arthur, Lana Lane as Guinevere, Danny Vaughn (Tyketto) as Lancelot, Bob Catley (Magnum) as Merlin, Irene Jansen as Morgana, and Sean Harris (Diamond Head) as Galahad. Ayreon's Arjen Luccassen and Damian Wilson contribute to the disc as well. Once and Future King is a perfect example of all that is great about AOR/melodic rock. While it can get a bit heavy at times, this probably shouldn't be considered a metal opera like Ayreon or Star One, though it will certainly appeal to fans of those two projects. If you are into melodic rock and metal, I highly recommend checking this one out.
