Bulgarian guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Alexandra Zerner has released her third full-length album. Entitled “Opus 1880”, this concept double album, consists of 22 tracks with a total running time of two hours. The music on this album is combined with a sci-fi novel, written by Alexandra Zerner and Slav Georgiev, which is the actual story that the album is based on. Thus, it can be considered as a progressive rock opera, similar to Ayreon and Dream Theater’s “The Astonishing”.
“Opus 1880” was released via PledgeMusic as a pre-order campaign, which exceeded 165% at the time of the release.
