So you know what happens to the rest and I have this little funny philosophy that when a song has its own energy, as much as I want it to make it to that record, if it doesn’t it means that the song and the energy behind it which I call God or the Angels say it’s not ready to come out into the world yet. I usually record 16 to 18 songs per each record, back in the old days you could put 12 to 15 songs on a record no problem, nowadays unless you’re a pop act it’s kind of smart to not put more than 10.
In 1985 Pretty Maids played the Hammersmith Odeon (September 18th to be precise) as support to British NWOBHM heroes Saxon. The tour on the back of their debut Red Hot & Heavy album promised a return to the UK shortly. To your average Danish hard rock band, shortly equates to 28 years at least for London anyways.
The band plays a style of Operatic Gothic Metal that obviously lends itself to EVANSCENCE, but some extra elements like the occasional male growl vocals and the odd Thrash Metal influenced guitar riffs ensure that they are doing enough to stand away a little bit from the crowd and hone in on a bit of a unique sound…
