Μάλλον η φάση τον έκαψε. Aπο εκεί που το ξεκίνησε για την ευχαρίστησή του, κατέληξε να είναι μια copy-cat αγγαρεία. Μόλις έβγαλε ανακοίνωση στο FB.
It's time to let Blazon Stone die.
For the last few years I've tried to find suitable band members that are both talented and passionate. I cannot find a singer. I cannot find a drummer. I have tried everything can no longer come up with any new ideas how to keep the ship above surface.
I also don't any longer enjoy the whole concept of Blazon Stone:
The whole idea from the start was just to record a "RW style" album for fun. As the song writing quality stepped up a lot with "War Of The Roses" and "Down In The Dark" (compared to the first 2) I felt like this can actually become something and I got ambitious... And then entered the nightmares of trying to actually have a functioning line-up. But the concept is the thing I like the least: There's nothing original about this project I can be proud of. It's just blatant copy of an existing band. There's individual songs I've written that I'm proud of, but that's not enough.
Of course I'm thankful for various temporary live stand-ins like vocalist Philip Forsell, both drummers Daniel Sjögren and Kalle Löfgren, as well as bass players Jimmy Mattsson and Kevin Crona, and let's not forget 2nd guitarist Emil!
But I can't go on like this anymore.
There's obviously no interest among any great musicians to join Blazon Stone for a real line-up. And I cannot afford to hire professional musicians for live use either, because there's really not a lot of money involved when a band is at this size. Bands like Sabaton or Hammerfall may be able to hire anybody they want to because they have big labels backing if needed. I don't have anything to save this sinking ship anymore.
Of course I'm thankful for all fans who has bought the albums, but I still cannot simply summon any talented musicians out of nowhere.
Now it's over.
I have given up on Blazon Stone.
There's nothing more I can do.
I have tried as much as I can.
Thanks for all /// C.
Πήγα να σε ρωτήσω γιατί το έβαλες στο heavy metal κουλτούρα, αλλά μόλις είδα ότι το άλλαξες, οπότε με πρόλαβες...
Ενδεχομένως η πιο ελιτίστικη και απροσπέλαστη μορφή τέχνης να περνά μέσα από λιτές απέριττες φόρμες. Αυτές που η πλειοψηφία θα αγνοήσει ή περιφρονήσει σαν απλοϊκότητα. Εκεί άλλωστε δε στηρίζεται και το 'αληθινό heavy metal'?
κρίμα γιατί είναι τεράστιο ταλέντο αλλά προφανώς και μεγάλος κάψας
The evil rite of the black and the light We now reveal to you
Ο τύπος το έχει. Πέτρα που κυλάει δε χορταριαζει.
The new incarnation of Rocka Rollas will be presented within a reasonable future. A new name has been chosen.
Keep your eyes open for updates!
Please be aware of that this is not just a simple change of name. It's a complete overhaul, from the ground up.
Production values, lyrical content, song writing, everything will be upgraded. I view Rocka Rollas as a "demo stage" at this point. I tried my wings in the metal world, and now I know what I can and cannot do. Life will always present new challenges and new lessons will be learned.
And yes, my new band will actually have it's own separate band page, imagine that!
While I cannot go into detail what I'm actually up to right now, I can safely say you shall not expect any childish garbage like RRs "The War Of Steel Has Begun" debut album.
This time I will make something I can be really proud of for the rest of my life, and I will take the time it needs to get there.
