The Mystic Technocracy – Season 2: The Age of Entropy

Dear friends and fans,

Prog metal space opera Docker’s Guild is very proud to announce the launch of its crowdfunding campaign for its new and upcoming album “The Mystic Technocracy – Season 2: The Age of Entropy”. “Season 2” continues the project storyline of the previous albums with a much darker tone and with the help of eighteen special guests, including Helly, Anna Portalupi, Joel Hoekstra, Sascha Paeth, Nita Strauss, Amanda Somerville, Anneke Van Giersbergen and many more. Thirteen videos will also be released, as well as a limited edition illustrated book, for a complete multimedia experience. The campaign begins on October 1, 2021 and will close on March 31, 2022. All money received will go to finance the album, without the usual costs or fees of third party platforms. Also, 10% of all funds will go to the FPRC (Fondazione Piemontese per la Ricerca sul Cancro). 2022 will mark  the 10th year anniversary of the release of Docker’s Guild’s acclaimed debut album “The Mystic Technocracy – Season 1: The Age of Ignorance” and we are very excited to celebrate the occasion with the release of this new fantastic album!

NOTE 1: All articles include the digital download of the album, two bonus tracks from “Book A” and crowdfunding exclusive bonus track “The Android Messiah”.

NOTE 2: the exclusives will be shipped at the end of the campaign (April 2022), except for the “Season 2” CD which will be shipped when released by the label (date to be announced)
