Onward - "New Fathoms Down" (audio)

Από τα πλέον αγαπημένα σχήματα των Ελλήνων metalheads οι Onward. Δημιουργήθηκαν το 2000, διαλύθηκαν τρία χρόνια αργότερα. "Εν ζωή" κυκλοφόρησαν δύο δίσκους ("Evermoving" - 2001, "Reawaken" - 2002) κι ένα demo. Μετά την διάλυση της μπάντας "βγήκαν" άλλα δύο albums: το "The Neverending Sun" (2007) που βασίσθηκε στο ομότιτλο demo του 2003 και το "New Fathoms Down" (2014).

Στο τελευταίο ο Toby Knapp έχει αναλάβει τα πάντα πλην φωνητικών. Στο μικρόφωνο ο Michael Grant που είχε πεθάνει δύο χρόνια πριν. Και θα με ρωτήσετε (δικαίως): πότε τα ηχογράφησε; Το 2002 σε ένα (ακυκλοφόρητο) demo. Αυτή την ηχογράφηση χρησιμοποίησε ο Toby Knapp στον δίσκο. Στα τέλη του περασμένου έτους το "New Fathoms Down" επανακυκλοφόρησε με δύο bonus τραγούδια...

Δελτίο τύπου: «This CD is the original 2018 Remastered (digipak) version of Onward’s “New Fathoms Down” album scheduled for release on 12.18.18 (Limited digipak “1st pressing” quantities will be available). The music was initially sourced from the original 4 track demo cassettes recorded in 2002.

In 2014 much of the music was restored and re-recorded by (guitarist) Toby Knapp using Michael Grant’s vocals taken from those 2002 cassettes.

In 2018 Crushing Notes Entertainment recruited Onward’s “Reawaken” album producer/engineer Brett Hansen to re-master the entire project using state of the art equipment at Audio Art Studios in Las Vegas, NV. Guitarist Toby Knapp and vocalist Michael Grant (R.I.P.) created this music as very raw demo ideas for a future Onward studio album.

Onward disbanded in 2003 and Grant passed away in 2012. The Music was forgotten and unfinished. In 2014 Knapp revisited the recordings and built up a new musical soundtrack around the decade old, deteriorating cassette.

After doing so, the work sounded more like a cohesive “official” album and was released in very limited quantities through Shredguy Records. Many listeners, including Knapp, felt this was Onward’s best material as it truly explored new directions Knapp was planning on taking the Music.»

  1. Φοβερή σύνθεση - βάζει κάτω πάνω από τα μισά τραγούδια Onward των 2 δίσκων. Για τη φωνή ουδέν σχόλιον.
