Palace

Hi Michael, I’m glad we’re given the chance to talk about your new album “Rock and Roll Radio”! I do think that this is one of your top works to date! An amazing album on the whole!
 
M: Hello! Very nice to talk to you again! Thank you very much!
 
 
Well, you released two albums in 2020.One with Platforms and another with Palace. How come? Did you plan it or it just happened?

Palace - Rock and Roll Radio

New album for Palace, the third in a row, and this time Michael has managed to come closer to the music vision he has for Palace… to capture all the things he likes about the 80s rock music in general. Then again, apart from the massive 80s influences and the nostalgic feeling, “Rock and Roll Radio” does have a contemporary and fresh sound on the whole.

Amberian Dawn - Looking for You

I guess, I sort of have a weird ambivalent relationship with Amberian Dawn’s music. One of almost like love/hate proportions. I did like their debut, which came some twelve years ago with another singer, which was more pompous and early Nightwish like, with clearly cut operatic vocals, antagonizing clear symphonic tendencies. Members from a variety of Finnish bands came and went and this Heidi Parviainen era of the band produced some four albums in a more neoclassical inspired mode, they tried to evolve, rather unspectacularly.
