BEGGAR’S BRIDE –
Now what’s this?? A project put to life by the Swiss producer and
songwriter, Holggy Begg.
I’ve never really
stumbled upon this guy before except that I know he’s the producer on
Oni Logan’s new album.
Holggy Begg-guy has assembled a couple of AOR/Hard Rock hotshots, among
others: Michael Voss (MAD MAX, CASANOVA, DEMON DRIVE), Marc Storace
(KROKUS), Aino Laos (LAOS) & Gary Barden (MSG, SILVER, STATETROOPER)…
call the music ”Desert Rock” and I can’t really figure out why
they’d use that term cos’ this ain’t ”dusty” at all… It’s
a pretty bizarre collection of songs though… A bit funny at times but
also rather interesting along the way…. Some of the tracks bear
resemblance to classic AOR but overall this is more strange than
beautiful, to put it straight.
If you want something
REALLY original and out of the ordinary then this CD is waiting for your
ears to embrace it! -:)
the all star line-up, but probably not a contender to Melodic Rock’s
Hall of Fame this year!
