【ABOUT NAUSICAA AND MESSAGE FOR JAPAN】

“The album is inspired by 1984 Hayao Miyazaki masterpiece Nausicaä of the valley of the wind. We tried to create an image of Nausicaa a bit different, firstly to respect the master work because the original character is untouchable.  It is a conceptual album based on the film and on the original movie score of Joe Hisaishi, we selected the music to perform and re-arranged all in our style. The album turned out as one long song made of 16 chapters. The album art shows a “grown up” Nausicaä in a post-atomic context, she has also developed some special faculties as the third eye.
The reasons that led us to create this project are many, first of all to pass in a certain sense, the message of the work of the master Miyazaki based primarily on respect and love for nature, a message more relevant than ever in these times.
The hate for the war and to all manifestations of hate and violence that still reduces men to beasts.
Cooperation, the rediscovery of a life lived in a community whose life and whose work is in close relationship with the elements of nature. Today might sound almost like a utopian message, but we believe it is important to reiterate these concepts, especially for future generations, also because our generations are destroying any possibility of future created in harmony and peace.
Our work is also a tribute to the great geniuses, Hayao Miyazaki, Joe Hisaishi, Studio Ghibli, a large team of artists who created masterpieces that will remain in time forever. We recently had news of the announced end of the career of the master Miyazaki, who gave us a last masterpiece like “The Wind Rises”, an incredible work of extreme beauty, also giving us a great picture of us Italians. This work is also a tribute to Japan, wonderful land of contrasts.
Thank you Master.”

このアルバムは1984年作、宮崎駿の「風の谷のナウシカ」にインスパイアされているんだ。少しだけ原作と違うものを作りたかったんだ。あくまで敬意を払いながらね。オリジナルのキャラクターはアンタッチャブルだから。
コンセプトアルバムでナウシカの映画と久石譲のサウンドトラックに基づいているんだ。採り上げる曲を選択し、全て僕達のスタイルに再アレンジしたんだ。16章から成る長い1曲のように仕上がったね。アートワークは”成長した”ナウシカなんだ。原爆以後という文脈でね。(注:ナウシカは反原爆の主張が込められていると言われている)サードアイのような特殊な能力もいくつか開花しているんだ。
このプロジェクトを始めた理由はいくつかあるんだけど、何よりもまず原作者宮崎駿の自然に対する愛と敬意というメッセージを届けたかったんだ。ある意味今こそ適切な時期なんじゃないかなあ。戦争と全ての憎しみ、暴力に反対する決意表明は獣と化す人間を減らすはずだよ。共生。生活したり働いたりしている君のコミュニティーを再発見してみよう。自然との緊密な関係が見えてくるはずなんだ。今日では桃源郷のようなメッセージに聞こえるかもしれないけどね。だけどこのコンセプトを繰り返し伝える事が大事だと信じているんだ。特に未来の世代にとってね。それに僕らの世代が調和と平和に満ちた未来の可能性を壊すべきではないんだ。
同時にこの作品は宮崎駿、久石譲、スタジオジブリという偉人達へのトリビュートでもある。傑作を作った大アーティスト集団で永遠に歴史に残るだろう。最近宮崎氏引退のニュースを聞いたよ。最後に傑作「風立ちぬ」を残してくれたね。信じられないほど究極に美しいし、イタリアの風景を扱っているのも嬉しいね。最後に多様性の国日本への敬意を表して挨拶を終えよう。ありがとう、巨匠。

WORLD PREMIERE: “HOLD ON” 【BEARDFISH】


WORLD PREMIERE: BEARDFISH LAUNCH “HOLD ON”. FIRST TRACK FROM THEIR FORTHCOMING ALBUM “+4626-COMFORTZONE”

bf10806323_10152371895080667_4676909083101685853_n
Swedish progressive-rockers Beardfish recently announced the release of their new album ‘+4626-COMFORTZONE’ for the 12th January 2015 in Europe. Now the band are pleased to reveal the first track to be taken from the album in the shape of ‘Hold On’ which you can listen to exclusively here:
http://prog.teamrock.com/news/2014-12-03/beardfish-premiere-hold-on

スウェーデンのプログバンド、BEARDFISH。来年の1/12に新作 “+4626-COMFORTZONE” を発売します。アルバムからのファーストカット、”HOLD ON” を公開です!!

bf1395270_10151659979695667_91511684_n

The band had this to say about the track: “Hold On was one of the first songs that came along for +4626-COMFORTZONE and it sort of set the mood for the rest of the album with the rhythm and the intertwined guitar riffs and melodies. The lyrics deal with trying to hang on to something that is slipping out of grasp and not being in connection with your inner self, to the point that you don’t recognize yourself in the mirror. A song that felt great right from the start and it still keeps getting better every time we play it live! Hope you’ll like it!”
“HOLD ON” は新作 “+4626-COMFORTZONE” からのファーストカットだよ。リズムや絡み合うギターリフ、メロディーがアルバムの雰囲気を伝えるのに丁度良いと思ったんだ。今も良い感じだけど演奏するごとにさらに良くなるだろうね。気に入ってくれるといいな!」             BEARDFISH

The full track-listing for the album is as follows:

1. The One Inside Part 1 – Noise In The Background
2. Hold On
3. Comfort Zone
4. Can You See Me Now
5. King
6. The One Inside Part 2 – My Companion Throughout Life
7. Daughter Whore
8. If We Must Be Apart (A Love Story Continued)
9. Ode To The Rock’n’Roller
10. The One Inside Part 3 – Relief

Look out for more information in the coming weeks!

“After almost a year of talking about the Sweet & Lynch album we’re extremely proud to premiere the first music video, The song takes you back to a time when guitar heroes ruled the airwaves and melodies soared. The thought was to bring back the late 70’s/early 80’s with a modern twist and remind people of one of the best eras in hard rock/metal. George and I are proud of how this album turned out and we’re counting the days for the release, We’re equally as proud of the fan base out there. So many people have been there through thick and thin and this album is a testimony to the perseverance of working hard and working even harder.  George, Brian, James and myself gave 110% to every note played and sung and we hope that it shows.”
「ほぼ一年に渡って SWEET & LYNCH の話をしていたんだけど遂に初のPVを公開できて誇らしく思うよ。この曲は君達をギターヒーローの時代に誘うだろうね。HR/HM が輝いていた 70’s 後半から 80’s 前半のヴァイブにモダンな感覚を加えたような感じさ。GEORGE も僕も発売が待ちきれないよ!ファンのみんなにも感謝しているんだ。GEORGE, BRIAN, JAMES そして僕は全ての音に100%を注ぎ込んだからね!」                     MICHAEL SWEET

WORLD PREMIERE: “THE GRAND EXPERIMENT” 【NEAL MORSE】


WORLD PREMIERE: “THE GRAND EXPERIMENT” FROM NEAL MORSE’S UPCOMING ALBUM !!

nmunnamed

“I am thrilled with how this song came out. During the recording sessions for the album, I remember waking up one morning wondering what was going to happen that day and not having a clue what direction the album would take… and I was thinking, “Man, this is a grand experiment!”. And as I was lying there I thought of the chorus, but my original version was slower and more of a keyboard thing…then the band got to it and Mike had the rockin verse idea and it developed from there. The video was shot and edited by my son Chad. Hope you all like it!”

この曲が発表できてぞくぞくするほど嬉しいよ。アルバムのレコーディング中は朝起きて今日は何か起こるんだろうか、方向性の手がかりもないし・・・って思ったのを覚えているよ。それで考えたんだ、「これこそが A GRAND EXPERIMENT じゃないか!」ってね。横たわってコーラスを考えた。だけど私のオリジナルバージョンはスロウでもっとキーボード向きの曲だったんだ。バンドに渡したらマイク(ポートノイ)がロックなアイデアを加えて改良してくれたよ。このビデオは私の息子チャドが撮っているよ。気に入ってくれるといいね!

INSIDE OUT NEWS: NEAL MORSE BAND ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM “THE GRAND EXPERIMENT” ON 2/16

sm

The Neal Morse Band are extremely pleased to announce the release of their new album ‘The Grand Experiment’ for the 16th February 2015 as well as a European tour for March 2015. For the first time ever prog icon Neal Morse came into a recording session with his long-time friend and collaborator Mike Portnoy, Randy George, Bill Hubauer and Eric Gillette…with NOTHING! He had no prepared material at all.

THE NEAL MORSE BAND は新作 “THE GRAND EXPERIMENT” を 2/16 にリリースします。参加メンバーは彼の長年の盟友 MIKE PORTNOY をはじめとして RANDY GEORGE, BILL HUBAUER, ERIC GILLETTE。レコーディングをセッションで行います。

sm10427221_10153450106646416_4930503206364182063_n

Neal comments: “I wanted to see what it would be like to create freely in the room with no preconceived notions. It was quite a risk!” On previous albums, like the Testimony album for example, Morse had the entire album written in advance. “I used to be rather paranoid about whether things would turn out in the short space of time we had available…so I would fill all the space in advance!” This album was totally different. “I made a lot of room for the other guys to create and express themselves and the result is outstanding! We wanted to experiment, do something a bit different, and see what everyone is capable of…we found out…in SPADES!” The results are obvious! This was a “grand experiment” that produced something far beyond anyone’s expectations! The main disc, containing 5 tracks, 2 long prog epics that are sure to be favorites for years to come, as well as 3 shorter songs including the catchy rocking title track “The Grand Experiment” is sure to blow the minds of all prog fans and appeal to anyone who loves hooky song writing with virtuoso performances from some of the best musicians in the world. The Grand Experiment was mixed by Rich Mouser.

「何の準備もなく全てセッションでアルバムを作るのは結構なリスクだよね。」 NEALは前作 TESTIMONY では前もって全てを書き終えていました。「前もって準備している方がしっくり来ていたんだ。」今回は全く違うようです。「今回は他のメンバーにも自由にやってもらうことにしたんだ。結果は最高だったよ!ちょっと違う事をやりたかったんだけど上手く行ったようだね。」 “THE GRAND EXPERIMNT” は5曲から成ります。2曲の大曲、プログエピックと3曲のキャッチーな小曲が収録されていますよ。                   NEAL MORSE
