Breaking Free er Forever Still’s debut EP og den består af 4 sange. Det er ca. et år siden EP’en udkom, men det er først nu jeg har fået tilsendt et eksemplar til anmeldelse. Bandets spiller gothic metal og i kraft af den kvindelige vokal vil jeg sammenligne dem med eksempelvis Lacuna Coil, Epica, Evanescence, Leaves’ Eyes og Within Temptation for bare at nævne et par bands.
EP’ens tre første sange ”The Key”, ”The Last Day” og ”Towards The Edge” er alle flotte sange, med gode melodier og så er de rigtig godt skrevet. Især anden skæring ”The Last Day” falder godt i min smag. Det er den mest varierede af de tre sange og det er også den sang der afslutter EP’en, men bare i en akustisk live version. Også her fungerer sangen rigtig godt. Read on..
Maja Schonning is the lead singer for the band Forever Still. They are a rock band that originated from the Copenhagen underground and are now one of Denmark’s most buzzed about bands. Their music is amazing because it is different then most rock music you will hear. It features gritty guitars and catchy melodies that are loud and heavy but can also be very light and smooth. When you listen to their music you can feel pure emoting pouring out through their songs. We had the chance to sit down and talk with Maja about why she likes music and she told us, “My favorite thing about music is the raw and honest emotion. It’s an escape for me, both listening to music and making it. Music allows me to be sucked into a completely different world and just linger there. Creating music is an outlet for all my fears, all my insecurities and it’s the way I heal myself. Music keeps you company when you have no one else, and now I’m able to bring that comfort to other people, which is truly a blessing.” Read on..
Forever Still are one of the most talented band of the underground area I’ve ever heard in my whole life. I discover this fabolous Dansk band on Twitter, more than a month ago, as you already know I’d like to work in music industry and I’m finishing an Uni dedicated about this area. Forever Still started to follow me on Twitter and my attention was caught by their name, first of all, I’ve never heard of them before, but as you know, once again, I love to discover new artists and listen to new music, so I followed them back and since that moment started a really cool journey discovering this amazing band. They shared with me their music, I was glad to listen it and I had to compliment with them for their power and their beat.
They are such really great guys, I usually tweet with them, especially with Maja, we share thoughts, moments and music. She’s definitely one of my favorite female vocalists ever.
By the way, a few weeks ago, I asked if I could interview them and share my very first interview here, on Buzznet, since communities and social networks are the best or the most used way for share something new.
I really hope you can enjoy my question and especially Forever Still answers and enjoy their music Read on..
