is a studio project put together by Frontiers Records President
Serafino Perugino and L.A. based producer Fabrizio Grossi to display
the vocal talent of Chilean born vocalist Gisa Vatcky. Their goal
was to make an album with contemporary Hard Rock and Metal songs for
a female singer, and with the choice of Gisa Vatcky, who has worked
with such artists as Meat Loaf, Andrea Bocelli, Enrique Iglesias,
Placido Domingo, and Melissa Etherige among many; they have selected
a very gifted singer.
Backed by musicians like Fabrizio Grossi (bass, orchestration,
programming, acoustic guitars), Mordechai 'Mordy' Hauser (guitars),
John Macaluso (drums), John Teramo (keyboards, piano) and Tommy
Denander (guitars) the cornerstones are in place. And when you add
the singing talent of Michael Kiske and Mark Boals to the mix, then
you have a great rock album in the making...
The influences vary from the gothic opener 'All I Never Wanted' and
'Hear Me', through more rock based songs like 'Taken', 'Island' and
'Shattered Life', but there is also room for more atmospheric sounds
in the duet between Gisa Vatcky and Michael Kiske in 'Breathe in
Water', before everything is closed with the emotional 'Go'.
Gisa Vatcky is surely a talented vocalist, not that far from a
singer like Ji-In Cho (Krypteria), the songs are suited for her
vocal style, and the finished product is a good collection of
melodic rock songs that makes one look forward to the next step in
