Joseph Tholl - "It's Just Rock'n'Roll" (audio)

Το τραγούδι των Joseph Tholl "It's Just Rock'n'Roll" από το album "Devil's Drum"
Ο Joseph Tholl είναι από τους πλέον δραστήριους μουσικούς στο heavy metal σύμπαν. Στους Enforcer έπαιζε κιθάρα (στην αρχή και μπάσο), στους Black Trip τραγουδούσε, ενώ στους VOJD έχει αναλάβει τα φωνητικά και το μπάσο. Το νέο του δισκογραφικό πόνημα όμως είναι κάτι πιο προσωπικό. Φέρει τον τίτλο "Devil's Drum" και κυκλοφορεί την προσεχή Παρασκευή.

Δελτίο τύπου: «Joseph Tholl started his musical career playing guitar for Enforcer. He quit in 2016. At the same time his other band, namely Black Trip, which he was singing for, turned into Vojd. Besides, Joseph Toll is also part of the touring line-up of Robert Pehrsson’s Humbucker.

And it was indeed Robert Pehrsson, who gave Tholl the idea for his first solo album entitled "Devil’s Drum". The live line-up of Joseph Tholl’s solo band includes Robert Pehrsson, Anders Bentell (Vojd) on drums and Oscar Ulfheden (Humbucker) on bass.»

Joseph Tholl: «It’s Just Rock’n’Roll’ is a sarcastic title. It’s about dedicating yourself truly to something that becomes a part of your life, music for example. To remain a passionate soul instead of giving up on yourself in order to fall in with the system.

Anyone who plays music with passion knows that it ain’t just rock’n’roll, it is in fact an important part of yourself that makes you get through the day. People who don’t deal with music or art might have a hard time understanding why someone would put so much effort into something that doesn’t necessarily pay off in big money.

Furthermore, 'Devil’s Drum" is quite far from a conventional rock’n’roll album which is also part of the sarcasm in the opening track. The title track is about a dream where you get seduced by the devil’s beat as he hits his drum and takes you on a trip through different scenarios.

I thought it suited well as the album title as I like to think that this seductive trip is what’s going on throughout the whole album. I suppose there’s parts on this album where you can recognize the 70’s style that Black Trip had for example, although this album is inspired by all kinds of music, not only vintage hard rock but also more contemporary stuff.

I think one main difference from records I’ve done before is that "Devil’s Drum" doesn’t focus on riffs and twin guitars even though it can be found here and there, but most of the time its more about the mood, and in a song like ‘Follow The Fire’ for example I’ve left out the guitar to give room for the piano.

There’s definitely elements of the darker kind of 80’s rock in a couple of songs. I do have a taste for that dark kind of rock. It’s nothing I grew up on, it’s more like a new found curiosity that I guess is mirrored in some of my recent songs.»
