Hello and congrats on “Smooth Seas”… we liked how smooth, the album was.
Å: G’day. And thanks a lot. Actually I don’t find the album that smooth (ha ha)… but it’s melancholic and perhaps a bit dramatic, but without my usual energetic vocals.

Donnie Vie - The White Album

One of the bands that I hardly ever “got” or got into, was Enuff Z’Nuff. These guys did form in the mid-80s but didn’t come into some prominence until later in the game, very much later, when they signed to Atlantic and that was a time when “hair metal” was starting to slowly go into a state of disarray. The fact that a band like them, would get signed, was “the writing on the wall” that things were shifting away from the musical side of things and towards the “image”.

Anette Olzon - Shine

Here’s a paradox. If Anette had never joined Nightwish – a cooperation that didn’t work for the band’s own benefit, only for Annette’s – probably she would never have become so popular in the rock/metal community and she wouldn’t have signed in a major label to release her debut solo work. I remember Anette in Alyson Avenue back in the day and not to be misunderstood, I always thought that she was a talented singer. She did experience too much in a small time period that some worked for her own advantage and some didn’t.

Moonrise - Stopover - Life

I’ve always kept an eye on this inimitable band from Poland, which, auspiciously, released its 3rd album almost 3 years after “Soul’s Inner Pendulum”. This time the band has a new singer, Marcin Jajkiewicz, who joined them in 2011. He has a suave & colorful voice and I think that it was a good choice in the main.
