Angel - "Calling St. Cecilia" (acoustic)

Οι Sahara Dust είναι η πρώιμη μορφή του συγκροτήματος Epica. Έδρασαν από το 2002 έως το 2003 (και κατόπιν μετονομάσθηκαν σε Epica). Μέλη των Sahara Dust ήταν και η τραγουδίστρια Helena Iren Michaelsen με τον drummer Steve Wolz, οι οποίοι μετακόμισαν στην Νορβηγία.

Με την επιστροφή τους στην Ολλανδία δημιούργησαν τους Imperia, οι οποίοι έχουν κυκλοφορήσει πέντε "ολοκληρωμένους" δίσκους (συν τέσσερα singles και μία συλλογή). Παράλληλα όλα τα μέλη της μπάντας δημιούργησαν (ως side project) τους Angel.

Οι Angel σχηματίσθηκαν το 2004 κι έναν χρόνο αργότερα κυκλοφόρησαν τον δίσκο "A Woman's Diary - Chapter I" (Ιούνιος 2005). 15 έτη μετά κυκλοφόρησε ο διάδοχός του. Τιτλοφορείται "A Woman's Diary - Chapter II" και "βγήκε" στην καρδιά του καλοκαιριού.

Το επόμενο βήμα δεν αποτελεί το τρίτο μέρος του "A Woman's Diary". Φέρει τον τίτλο "A Woman's Diary - The Hidden Chapter" κι αποτελείται από ακουστικές εκτελέσεις δεκατριών τραγουδιών από τα πρώτα δύο κεφάλαια του "Ημερολογίου της γυναίκας"...

Δελτίο τύπου: «ANGEL's "A Woman’s Diary - The Hidden Chapter" is another heartfelt and emotional album by Helena Iren Michaelsen. She already showed her emotional non-metal side with her previous albums "A Woman's Diary - Chapter I" as well as "A Woman's Diary - Chapter II".

Now she takes it even a step further and reduced the arrangements to only piano and vocals for an entire album. Helena is known for having a voice that can master all different kinds of styles and produce many different colors, from the most fragile and sensitive singing to aggressive grunts.

This acoustic album rather features the sensitive kind of singing, and it also includes several songs where she could use her classical soprano education. Oliver Philipps plays the piano on the album and it is carried out with the same sensitivity and emotionality that Helena has in her voice.

Most of the songs are cover versions, covering a wide range of genres from classics like "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" to Motörhead's "Don't Let Daddy Kiss Me". The songs were not chosen by style or genre, they are just songs that have had a story to them in Helena's life, so she relates to them and was able make them "her own".

Two songs are self-composed, "Little Ballerina" and "Keep Your Head Held High", and there is a piano version of "Let Down" from IMPERIA's "Secret Passion" album included as well. So, at first, this album may come with a very unexpected choice of songs, but it is yet another intense emotional journey Helena takes the listener on, hoping to touch the people's heart and soul.»
