Colosseum Thesis is a progressive metal quintet from Phoenix, Arizona, that uses a unique amalgam of metal, classical, jazz, and other musical styles, as well as theatrical costumes and performances, to bring an enthralling fantasy epic to life. The band brings their first release, the maxi-single Marvelous, to the world in February, 2015. Colosseum Thesis hopes that their evocative, aggressive, and ornate sound will stretch and challenge the imaginations of all who listen, and invites them to enter into a different world--a world where wizards, princes, knights, and all manner of unlikely sojourners unite under a common banner to curtail the advances of war.
Enter into Le Château des Merveilles, the manor of the dangerous wizard Jaspa, the leader of the infamous Cult of the Marvelous. In recent years this prophetic cult has been fed the agenda of the tyrannical Blood King of Lillithrah so that he might advance his aggressive military conquests around the world with the favor of his subjects. As Leon & co. travel back to their home timeline from a future world where they have learned that dissolving the Cult of the Marvelous may be the only way to prevent war and genocide, Leon must harness not his magical powers, but his rhetorical skills in order to unravel the persuasive arguments of Jaspa that hold his cult, and thus the influential Lillithrian populace, in sway.
