Reece Kronlund Review online

Hi people,

read some thoughts on the Reece Kronlund album solid here.

 

Hans at BosPop Weert (NL)

Hello everyone,

A new milestone is about to be added to the list of milestones: Bospop in Weert, Netherlands. Coming sunday I’ll supply the backbone and heart beat for Afro American female singer and guitarist Malina Moye.

Malina Moye serves a very interesting brew of alternative R&B, Rock and Funk… It’s smoking!!  Check out:  www.malinamoye.com Sharing the main stage at Bospop with all time greats like Journey, Foreigner, Joe Cocker, Dream Theater, Thin Lizzy, Ringo Starr among others is even more quite mindboggling for me… and I’m enjoying every second of it! Check out: www.bospop.nl 

Music always wins (humbly quoted from Mr. V. Collaiuta).

My best to y’all!!!

Reece Kronlund released

Hi y’all,
I’m very proud to announce to you the release of my next CD that I tracked the drums for:
Reece Kronlund: Solid, my 17th full length platter. Released 24-6-2011 through one of the finest labels in the contemporary rock scene:
Besides the obvious “suspects” in this project David Reece and Martin Kronlund writers and players like Tommy Denander, Brynn Arens, Christian Tolle, Andy Susemihl among others took responsibility in contributing to this melodic rock fest “vom feinsten” 🙂
Please read below:
 
Reece/Kronlund: Solid
http://www.seaoftranquility.org/images/reviews/R/reece_kronlund.jpgAfter a good few years out of the music business it is great to see one time Accept singer David Reece back in very regular action. Teaming up with Dogface guitarist Martin Kronlund in the band Gypsy Rose, the pair released Another World in 2008, before Reece put out a solo album one year later. Next up came the comeback album Cadence from Bangalore Choir kept the ball rolling at full pelt last year. Kronlund was also involved with Cadence as well as the recent Bangalore Choir reissue On Target and therefore it is no surprise to see the pair back together so soon for the first Reece/Kronlund album, simply titled Solid.
Now that album title may give the impression of a dependable and steady release, however that description would be selling this album short and by quite some distance. Cadence, which was a mighty fine album, was seen by some (not me!) as a little too modern to carry the Bangalore Choir name and for those people Solid should fit the bill perfectly. Built round big brash guitars, huge melodies, gargantuan hooks and the mighty Reece-Roar, this album nods a little more firmly in the eighties arena rock direction, although this is no nostalgia trip as in terms of sound and execution the album is bang up to date.
Racing out of the blocks with the punchy “My Angel Wears White”, Solid wastes no time with introductions, instead we get a huge chorus that greets you like an old friend before being backed up by some gritty and in your face guitars. The heavy bluesy stomp of “Samurai” allows Kronlund to really crank things up and with the backing of Bangalore Choir stick-smith Hans in ‘t Zandt, kicks out a thick groove that hits home with a hefty thwack!Reece himself is in stunning form, with his throaty, yet crystal clear vocal power being as captivating as ever and whether it is the more restrained “Could This Be Madness”, or the meatier delivery of “Paint The Mirror Black”, there’s no question that he is one of the best at this game. There isn’t a duff track anywhere in sight on Solid, with the darting riff of “Animals And Cannibals” adding an almost power metal chorus to a bouncing rocker of a song, while the confident swagger of the oddly titled “Magic Pudding” brings another different angle to the Reece/Kronlund sound, with a vibe similar to the Allanah Myles hit “Black Velvet”, even if this song is considerably heavier.
More impressive than the title Solid would suggest, the only question I have after listening to this album is which of the many excellent bands and projects that Reece currently has on the go, will we hear from next. Whichever it is I hope David manages to keep up his prestigious album a year work rate, as with output as spellbinding as this, there’s no danger of getting too much of a good thing!

Rest in Peace: Jan Somers

Hello everyone,
So sad to let you know that my former band mate with Vengeance Jan Somers past away yesterday, Friday 28th January.
We worked together for quite a while. We created and toured three albums with Vengeance: Back in Ring, Same, Same … but different and Soul Collector.
Being a great musician and multi talented anyways Jan can definitely say: I did it my way!
I wish his son Timo and the rest of the Somers family all the strength…. I know they’re gonna need it…
Respect!
Hans
