Talisman - "Never Die (a song for Marcel)" (video)

Το single των Talisman "Never Die (a song for Marcel)"
Το καλοκαίρι του 2009 αποχαιρετούσα τον Marcel Jacob στο (τότε) προσωπικό μου ιστολόγιο με μία ανάρτηση υπό τον Καρυωτακικό τίτλο "Ιδανικοί Αυτόχειρες". Ο Marcel σχημάτισε τους Talisman το 1989 μετά την φυγή του από την μπάντα του John Norum. Η μπάντα κυκλοφόρησε επτά στουντιακούς δίσκους.

Δέκα χρόνια μετά τον θάνατο του Marcel Jacob οι Talisman επανασυνδέθηκαν και κυκλοφόρησαν (προ ημερών) ένα τραγούδι στην μνήμη του υπό τον τίτλο "Never Die (a song for Marcel)". Στα φωνητικά (ξανα)βρίσκουμε τον Jeff Scott Soto, ενώ την θέση του Marcel στο μπάσο έχει πάρει ο Johan Niemann (βλ. Evergrey, Mind's Eye, ex-Therion, ex-Evil Masquerade κλπ)...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Talisman reunite for song in memory of Marcel Jacob to be released in cooperation with Suicide Zero organization! Talisman, the band founded and created by the late Marcel Jacob in 1989, have written, produced and recorded a new song entitled “Never Die (A Song for Marcel)” for their fallen brother who took his own life 10 years ago on July 21, 2009.

Surviving members Jeff Scott Soto, Jamie Borger and Pontus Norgren penned the song as a tribute to Jacob as well as the legacy of music they created from 1990-2007. The guys created the track to commemorate the 10 years of Jacob’s passing but conflicting schedules didn’t allow them to finish it before the end of the year.

Rounding out the current line up who have done a handful of shows together as Talisman since 2014 are Johan Niemann (Evergrey) on bass & BJ (SOTO) on keys/backing vocals. Any and all proceeds from this recording will to go to suicide awareness. This is a way to remember someone who took their own life but at the same time increase knowledge about mental illness within the music industry.»
