Nog eentje binnen het 'heavy' spectrum, maar dan geheel anders dan het vorige nummer dat ik online gooide. Siena Root grijpt terug naar de classic rock uit de jaren zeventig. Een greep uit de vele invloeden waaruit ze putten kan je hieronder terugvinden. Yep, ik ben een sucker voor de retrosfeer die opgeroepen wordt, waarbij de sound lekker vet klinkt, de orgel en gitaren alle ruimte krijgen en de drums lekker gaan stuwen. Iets meer moeite heb ik met de zang van Zubaida, die voor mij niet steeds even vast overkomt, but hey, al bij al is dit een detail. Een band die ik héél graag eens live aan het werk wil zien.
Revelation verschijnt op 24 februari januari 2023 via Atomic Fire Records.
The band explain, "This is the trailer for our movie, »Wheels Of Revelation« as well as the first track of the album »Revelation« and tells a story of fear one experiences when coming close to death and realizing the fickleness of life. Musically, 'Coincidence & Fate' is an all-analogue recording featuring dirty organ riffs and fat drums. That's where heavy rock tunes with female front vocals -- seemingly inspired by classic acts such as URIAH HEEP and JETHRO TULL -- meet SIENA ROOT's remarkable root rock sound. Enjoy!"
Founded in the late '90s, Siena Root have constantly been working on something new, ever-changing their approach and experimenting a lot - not only to keep their music fresh for fans but especially to challenge themselves. An open secret and one of the main reasons for the group being relevant as ever after all these years. Besides touring with acts such as DEEP PURPLE and DEWOLFF, the quartet -- longtime/founding members Love Forsberg (drums) and Sam Riffer (bass), completed by guitarist Johan Borgström and multi-talent Zubaida Solid (vocals, keys) -- have always been bringing their highly infectious performance to the stages of the world that gained them a very own load of die-hard fans around the globe.
Siena Root is group well known for its rainbow spectra of appearances, its many great guest artists, its broad musical range and its unique interpretations of classic rock music. Seven full length studio albums, one double live album, one DVD and three 7” singles have been released so far, each one marking the development and refinement of the bands spectra of music style. Siena Root has been touring frequently in Europe since the early 00's, and producing a wide range of genre-blending songs. Often their concerts featured prominent guest musicians. Live performances are the definite lifeblood of the band. Their shows often evolve into wild improvised live sessions from where they draw the ideas for the studio work.
The live act came to be an uncompromising show, using all the heavy vintage equipment that most bands lack the strength and passion to carry along. Even a full size multi-track tape recorder was brought all over Europe during the recording of their live album. With the immense dedication to do it all the way, Siena Root would always stand out from the others. A Siena Root concert is dramatic and exciting, visually, as well as emotionally. It's a dynamic root rock experience.
