From the Label
In July of 1997, Pangaea returned to the studio to again collaborate with Berry. The result, Welcome To The Theatre..., raises the band to a higher level. The performances are strong, the attitude mature, and the songs intimate. The album title is taken from the lyric in the chorus of "Altar of the Dragon", a song of the inner-self. There are eleven tracks in all including the Native American influenced 'The White Shaman', based on an 8,000 year old pictograph on a cave wall in the Pecos River Valley (Texas). The socio-political 'The Fall of Rome' compares modern society with that of the ancient civilization. 'Crimson' is a multi-movement work which features many nuances of the band. The album closes with a palindrome, 'The Nightmare', in which the group explores atonality. Every aspect of this album indicates Pangaea's dedication, creativeness, and growth.
