The Big Deal - 'Bad Times Good Times' (video)

You’ve been hiding the reasons
and things that should be said
You’ve been suffering treason
it led you to heartache
You believe that forever
and ever fate is sealed
Now you know that never
you’ll turn back the wheels.

And the God is gone and far away...

Hold on, hold on
HE is watching over you
Bad times, good times -
where all is leading to?
Hold on, hold on
The glow will change the blue
Bad times, good times -
one day you’ll pass it through...

You’ve been hiding the reasons
and things that should be said
You’ve been suffering treason
it led you to heartache
You believe that forever
and ever fate is sealed
Now you know that never
you’ll turn back the wheels.
And the God is gone and far away...



Στους Σέρβους metallers Alogia έχουμε αναφερθεί εκτενώς. Τρία από τα μέλη της μπάντας σχημάτισαν κι ένα συγκρότημα μελωδικού metal με το όνομα The Big Deal.

Αρχικά η μπάντα μας συστήθηκε μέσω διασκευών (σε τραγούδια των ABBA, Nightwish, Europe) και πλέον μας προσφέρει και δικό της υλικό. Πρόκειται για το ντεμπούτο των The Big Deal "First Bite" που κυκλοφόρησε χθες...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Frontiers Music Srl is thrilled to announce the upcoming release of the debut album from an extremely talented melodic hard rock band from Serbia, The Big Deal.

Their debut album "First Bite" is an absolute tour de force showcasing the outstanding talents of the individual members over the course of 11 tracks of infectious, hooky, memorable songs.

The Big Deal, featuring two outstanding vocalists, Ana Nikolic and Nevena Brankovic (who is also a highly skilled keyboard/piano player), offers up a catchy, driving sound that will appeal to a wide swath of rock and metal fans from lovers of melodic rock and hard rock to symphonic and power metal fans.

Guitarist Srdjan Brankovic, the band's producer and main songwriter, may be recognized by some fans from his work with progressive metallers Alogia, of whom drummer Marko Milojevic is also a member. The Big Deal first came together when guitarist, composer, and producer Srdjan and keyboardist Nevena, who is an academic pianist and singer, started working with singer Ana Nikolic.

Ana had spent the past few years fronting local bands, but after meeting Srdjan and Nevena, they started collaborating in the studio together on some songs. While working on some new ideas, Srdjan thought it would be interesting to include Ana's vocals in addition to Nevena's in the recordings they were working on.

After a couple of songs were finished, they were overjoyed with the results and thus some of The Big Deal's first demos were born. These would eventually morph into the music that was presented to Frontiers and ultimately got them signed.

To round out the lineup, the band brought in drummer Marko Milojevic and later, Alessandro Del Vecchio (Hardline, Revolution Saints) on bass (who was instrumental in introducing the band to the label). Both Srdjan and Marko are members of the most successful Serbian progressive metal band, Alogia.

Throughout his career, Srdjan has played on many festivals and tours, recorded and collaborated on countless studio and live albums, and opened for some well-known bands such as Whitesnake, Ian Paice, Apocalyptica, Savatage, and more.

He was also a member of Michael Matijevic's live band in Bulgaria. On his “Expedition Delta” and “Alogia” albums, he collaborated with names such as Tim 'Ripper' Owens, Mark Boals, Erik Norlander, Gary Wehrkamp, Fabio Lione, and Hansi Kursch, among others.

To introduce themselves to the world, over the course of 2021, the band released covers of songs by Europe, Nightwish, and ABBA as a precursor to debuting their original music.»
