    It Was Wrong to Do This
Can you imagine classic literature set to classic metal? Would you think, that poems fit well to rocking guitars and a singer, who sounds like the son of Rob Halford?
This is exactly what I do on my new album „Black riders part 2“, which is released on the first of November 2019, the day, when Stephen Crane was born 148 years ago. Crane is a famous american poet, who died at the young age of 28 because of Tuberculosis. I set ten of his poems to music. My compostional method is to notate everything before the recording starts. That means I work like the good old Beethoven sitting with a pencil and a piece of paper at a desk or in front of a computer monitor developing elaborate arrangements as detailed scores. And though I play Metal I am neither tattooed nor long-haired nor do I wear spikey leather-jackets or corpse-paint. You can imagine me as the friendly insurance-agent from the neighborhood wearing big glasses, being a husband and daddy, but as soon as I have a second of free time my mind dives into music.
This time I can proudly present a new singer: Giacomo Rossi from italy, whose skills and dramatic performance elevates my project to the next level.
