Jono


Hi Nicka, Johan and Stephan – it’s good to talk with you again about your new album “Life”. It’s really one of the top symphonic prog rock albums of 2017.
 
Nicka: Thank you so much. Really appreciated!
 
 
Hence, what has changed since “Silence” and what are the new elements that you introduce with “Life”?
 

Jono - Life

Swedes Jono are a band built around the talents of one Johan Norrby, who initially wanted to do a solo project (hence their name – the first two letters of his name and surname), but eventually they turned into a full time band. The easiest way to describe them is Sparks meets Queen. They are idiosyncratic, like the former and eclectic and bold with their arrangements, but melodic like the latter while they don’t sound like a “copy” too. Great stuff!
 

Alice Cooper premieres video for new single “The Sound of A” & announces the physical release for February 23rd 2018

Today sees the official video premiere for “The Sound of A”.

The song has a special meaning; it is in fact the first song that Alice Cooper wrote entirely on his own back in 1967. The song was forgotten until Dennis Dunaway, the bass player of the original Alice Cooper band, rediscovered it and played it to Alice, after which the two of them updated the song and then recorded it for the “Paranormal” album. With its psychedelic sound, swirling guitars and the mysterious Hammond organ, it is one of the most hypnotic songs on “Paranormal”.
