I chose my favorite singers and was very influenced by them during my writing. Style, range and key – I really did my best to make the singers shine as much as possible.
I guess I wanted to go back to basics, that’s all really. The guys
are great guys, I have known them for many years but sometimes people
grow in different directions. They always stayed in that German power
metal kind of bubble I would say. Not to say that in a negative
way, that is their trademark and they wanted to keep that. I think I am
more of a free bird somehow
Quantity rather than the quality of the actual music. That’s what i think happened in the old era, Ronnie was a part of that and that’s also why
a band could put only the best eight,nine or ten tracks on an album….
