Jimmy Hotz - The Gates of Time

Jimmy's current music project "The Gates of Time" is his first solo recording in which his inventions, the "Hotz Box"(MIDI Controller) and the "Hotz MIDI Translator" (Computer Software) are the primary instruments. As Jimmy has been very busy working with other Artists and inventing Musical Instruments, "The Gates of Time" is also his first solo project since "Beyond the Crystal Sea". Jimmy has also written a book called "The Gates of Time" which is a companion to this music and chronicles many adventures beyond Time and Space as we know it.

This EP contains 4 songs from what will eventually be the full "The Gates of Time" CD.

Jimmy Hotz - Beyond the Crystal Sea - Review by Ken Scott

"Ask any in-the-know collector about the best Christian progressive art rock album and the answer is usually as toss up between Arkangel’s Warrior and this one. Beyond The Crystal Sea is the heavier and spacier of the two, plastered with what seems like layer upon layer of synthesizers. ‘March Of The Dead Souls’ pins your ears to the wall from the start with its hard space rock barrage and eerie banshee choirs. Hotz’s layered hard rock guitar is absolutely venomous on ‘Hand Of The Most High’ and the instrumental ‘Teton’, while ‘Vision Ships’, ‘Beyond The Blues’, and ‘From Love Life Did Begin’ are more reminiscent of the melodic lavish textures of Yes (though vocally Hotz brings to mind Peter Gabriel of early Genesis). Kemper Crabb is in here playing recorder on ‘Alpine Magic’. The production quality is superb as is the fantasy cover art. If you’ve got a good stereo you’re gonna wanna blast this up loud. It’s out of this world!" (Ken Scott - Archivist)
