Full of highly melodic mid-tempo rockers, the third album is vocal heavy, making the vocals a fix point of the whole CD. This record goes from ballads to heavy rocking songs in classic European hard rock style.Recorded in the bands own shorerocks studio in Karlsruhe, Germany, Jan and Sven were joined by Swedish drummer extraordinaire Magnus Brandell who is featured on 8 of the 11 tracks. Check out his drumming on the progressive “My Life” Jan Knopf again did an outstanding job delivering the vocals. “I have to say that this record is kinda vocal heavy”, states Sven. “Producing and arranging the songs made this a deliberate decision. We both love the trademark vocal harmonies of melodic rockers from Journey to Survivor as well as more progressive bands like Styx and Kansas. Without question the biggest influence of all was Queen.
Their body of work is simply outstanding.”Sven played all guitars, bass and also the keyboards. He also added some background vocals, but those “only support the rich harmonies from Jan” as he clarifies.Finally we got permission to use 2 marvelous photos of Tom Lichtenwalter, who is known for his US landscape pictures. The icing on the cake, so to speak.
