Anette Olzon - "Parasite" (video)

Ο δίσκος των Anette Olzon "Strong"
Follow the tempter,
A tune for the new age
For the mindless and the numb
A monster that’s who you are
Twist the mind of them all
(who can save him?)
No warnings no signs -
A demon arrived
Smooth disguised
Fill ears with lies -
Came in from behind
Stealing lives

How could we not foresee it?
The signs were there to see it!

Open your eyes -
Time to take fight
Push the evil out of sight
Take off the blinds and
Leave him without -
Close down all rights
Terminate the parasite!

His ways - stole days
Took our rights
Dehumanized - constant lies
Twisting minds
(who could stop him?)
Again and again
Used women and men
Made them fall
Left trace and disgrace
Human erased
Mocked us all

How could we not foresee it?
The signs were there to see it?

Open your eyes -
Time to take fight
Push the evil out of sight
Take off the blinds and
Leave him without -
Close down all rights
Terminate the parasite!

Leave him out -
Close down all rights
We must end the hate
Push the evil out of sight
Take the blinds away
Leave him out -
Close down all rights
We must end the hate
Push the evil out of sight
Take the blinds away

How could we not foresee it?
The signs were there to see it!

Open your eyes -V Time to take fight
Push the evil out of sight
Take off the blinds and
Leave him without -
Close down all rights
Terminate the parasite!
Open your eyes -
Time to take fight
Push the evil out of sight
Take off the blinds and
Leave him without -
Close down all rights
Terminate the parasite!


Η Anette Olzon Blyckert ουσιαστικά συστήθηκε στο heavy metal κοινό μέσω των Nightwish, στους οποίους διατέλεσε τραγουδίστρια. Η αντικαταστάτρια της Tarja Turunen έμεινε στην Φινλανδική μπάντα μία πενταετία (2007-2012) κι εν συνεχεία αντικαταστάθηκε από την Floor Jansen.

Έκτοτε συμμετέχει σε μπάντες / projects όπως οι The Dark Element, οι Allen / Olzon και οι Alyson Avenue (το συγκρότημα που είχε πριν τους Nightwish κι επανασυνδέθηκε το 2015). Παράλληλα "τρέχει" και την προσωπική της καριέρα. Το 2014 κυκλοφόρησε το πρώτο της solo album ("Shine"). Επτά χρόνια μετά, τον προσεχή Σεπτέμβριο, θα "βγει" ο διάδοχός του υπό τον τίτλο "Strong"...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Current The Dark Element (and ex-Nightwish) vocalist Anette Olzon is set to release her new solo album, "Strong" via Frontiers Music Srl on September 10, 2021.

'Parasite' is a song about those who create disaster in this world with their lies, their schemes, their greed and hate. Hiding their intentions behind a respectable facade,” says Anette Olzon of the albums' first single.

Living in a world of a bit of chaos with a pandemic, crazy politics, violence, social media behavior and people venting their opinions upon others all the time is the foundation behind the idea of the lyrics for the album.

Musically, I wanted a much heavier album, yet with strong melodies and took my inspiration from bands I like such as Dimmu Borgir and In Flames,
” she continues. This will be Anette's second solo album, following 2014's "Shine," and offers a harder, faster musical offering compared to the debut.

More importantly, "Strong" stakes a claim for Anette’s well-deserved standing as one of the world's top female metal vocalists. The music for "Strong" was written and composed together with acclaimed Swedish guitarist and producer Magnus Karlsson.

Together, Anette and Magnus managed to create an outstanding collection of songs which showcase Anette’s enormous vocal range alongside Karlsson’s incendiary riffs. The songs are heavy, but still quite melodic and contemporary in their approach to the genre style.

Additionally, "Strong" is mixed by Jacob Hansen (Pretty Maids, Volbeat, The Dark Element, etc.). All in all, “Strong” is an album that masters the borders between heaviness and hookiness, all while showing an artist who doesn't rest on her laurels, but heads boldly into the future.»

  1. Νομίζω ότι αυτά που κάνει μετά τους Nightwish της ταιριάζουν περισσότερο.

    1. Έτσι δείχνει. Νομίζω ότι ήταν κακή επιλογή για τους Nightwish όχι τόσο λόγω φωνής, όσο στυλ. Από την άλλη σε καλό της βγήκε γιατί ακούστηκε σε μεγαλύτερους "κύκλους" το όνομά της...
