Big City, melodiøse hardrockere med kontrakt

av yngve

Big City 17Kristiansandbandet har sikret seg kontrakt, skive kommer.

Det er gitarist Daniel som tipser Heavymetal.no om dette, noe jeg setter stor pris på. Jeg liker Big City godt, og har fulgt med siden de første låtene kom for noen år siden. Det er på tide at dette bandet får en større arena.

Det er det greske selskapet Roar! Rock Of Angels Records som har knyttet til seg Big City. Nytt album kommer neste år, det vil være et dobbeltalbum som også inkluderer bandets debut, Wintersleep.

Bandet skriver på materiale til nok et album, bassist Miguel ble rekruttert som fast medlem, og de planlegger å spille live for første gang i 2018, Heavymetal.no ønsker bandet lykke til og håper det tar av.

Sakset fra presseskriv: "Big City is a melodic heavy rock/metal band from Norway with tons of experience in the music industry. The members have been playing or still play in extreme bands as Satyricon and Blood Red Throne, but also the up and coming prog metal band Withem and many other bands.

The reason for Big City is songwriter Daniel Olaisen and his ideas throughout the last 10 years. He wanted to put his 80’s heavy riffs in a band and find suitable people to join him. Bandmate, Frank Ørland, also played with Daniel in Scariot (1999-2005, prog/thrash/heavy band featuring Communic members) and was an obvious choice to bring to Big City. Frank Nordeng Røe (Withem, Marathon, session drummer for Circus Maximus) on drums, was found when searching on internet. The band was completed with Jan Le Brandt on vocals and Geir Inge Olsen on session bass guitar. The debut album, Wintersleep, was recorded and released in 2013 digitally through Mayhem Music."
