The Symphonic Finnish Prog-Rock Concept Album About Scrooge McDuck

07 Mar

Finnish prog-rock concept album about Scrooge McDuck

Holy bejeebus i could kick myself for not thinking of this first. (Although  i pray Disney doesn’t swing in and sue)

So, Tuomas Holopainen, keyboardist of Finnish prog-metal band Nightwish, is releasing his solo debut, The Life And Times Of Scrooge, on April 15. And by Scrooge, he means of course Scrooge McDuck.

That is right, it’s a symphonic prog rock concept album based on Don Rosa’s graphic novel The Life And Times Of Scrooge McDuck, which traces the origin of Scrooge McDuck (which as a dork who used to read the old, classic Carl Barks Donald Duck comics i can tell you is rife with awesomeness).

It is due out on April 15, 2014.

Here is the first song released from the album.
