"The road in life forks in every moment, with one path leading toward confusion, separateness, and entanglement, and the other toward clarity, connection, and mental freedom. With mind whispering, the choice can be ours."
2010 sophomore album from the Swedish AOR/Melodic Rock outfit. The production on this album is state of the art. Not a surprise considering the band loves the big sound of Toto, Journey and Foreigner. Each of the 13 tracks is crafted with incredible songwriting skill, the album is full of potential hit singles and classic songs for fans of AOR. Tobias Sammer from Edguy and Avantasia guests on the song 'Black Night'. The Collector's Edition includes three bonus tracks and 2-nd CD: Expanded Edition for debut studio album H.E.A.T…
Album by the Spanish flamenco singer Antonio Núñez Montoya (1930-2005), aka 'El Chocolate', published after his death. Antonio was one of the great figures of flamenco singing and styled a personality in singing, always addressed without compromise nor easy resources, with a style rooted in the singer purity. His specialties were the gypsy songs: 'soleá', 'siguiriya', 'martinetes', 'bulerías' and 'tangos', although he masters others styles as the 'fandango'. In 2002 he won the Grammy award for best flamenco album for his compilation 'Mis 70 años con el cante'.
Relatively unaware from the rest of the planet, South Africa apparently had their own rock scene in which a few groups evolved in the scope of ProgArchives, the first being Freedom Children and here, Hawk. Indeed the apartheid was an important factor running the country and the generally well-respected boycott made that a few artistes left the country (ie: Manfred Mann), but others remained and fought the Apartheid in their own manner. Whether Hawk really did so is anyone's guess, but the strong black African music sprinkled all over their music does give a hint they did. Hawk was a group that was apparently managed from afar by Lonstain, but the problems were numerous between artistes and producers.
