  • Very postive Alerion reviews & interview

    13. Okt. 2007, 16:03 von _se_bas

    Alerion is a Female Fronted / Progressive Metal band. The 2007 self-produced demo album Fledgling is fully available on Last.fm as a free download.

    Several reviews of the demo album Fledgling have been done, with more coming up. We are a bit overwhelmed by them actually, because they're all so positive. All reviews are listed on our website at http://www.alerion.nl/press.html

    For those who don't want to read all the reviews, I have listed some memorable quotes taken from them:

    "And after four songs I know, that ALERION is something different and maybe even special in a way. It’s hard to compare them to any other band in the overfloaded metal scene. Which is good and it means that they’re one of a kind. Mix heavy metal with prog metal and add some female vocals to it. Shake this very well and add some chili for the powerful flavour. Voila, the ALERION taste is ready."
    - Metalmaidens.com - February 19th, 2008.

    "Clearly, Alerion is a promising young band with plenty of potential. With the right vocalist, their strong musicianship now affords them the opportunity to better define their sound."
    - Femmemetalwebzine.com - February 8th, 2008.

    "En effet les titres sont bien composés et complexes sans tomber dans le coté démonstratif et ennuyeux. Un groupe qui a du potentiel, on attend l'album!"
    - Desfillesetdesriffs.fr - October 25th, 2007.

    "Overall this disc does a very good job of showcasing the versatility of the band and the diversity of their "sound". They have a great marketing strategy and good tunes. Those attributes, coupled with their youth and enthusiasm give them an opportunity for a real career."
    - Hardrockhaven.net - October 12th, 2007.

    "They have the chops and just need a little work on the chemistry. Keep your eyes open for Alerion in the near future... "
    - Progressiverockbr.com - October 4th, 2007.

    "Fledgling proves to be an excellent debut album recorded in only a short amount of time. Alerion is a band that should be checked out and closely watched."
    - Desolatehope.com - October 1st, 2007.

    "This band deserves your attention. This cd so happens to be a grower, so live with it and you will reap the rewards!"
    - Ravenheart Music - September 20th, 2007.

    "This is a must listen and if the band continue to build on this mini album they are sure to go onto good things."
    - Rockandmetaldomain.co.uk - September 16th, 2007.

    "This is an amazing debut demo and really a band to keep in mind!"
    - Digital-Steel.com - September 1st, 2007.

    "Daarom geef ik Alerion ook een mooie score van 9/10 en we verwachten binnenkort zekerenvast een full album!!"
    - Ashladan.be - August 31st, 2007

    Guitar Player magazine readers

    Best Slide Guitarist selection Sonny Landreth talks...
    "Theres so many different influences. ... I think blues is in the heart of it he says. I grew up with a lot of influences in rock and roll, jazz, blues, exotica.

    Landreth, who writes the majority of his own music, has acquired a following among peers and fans, and has been performing in the industry for decades. Eric Clapton has said he is probably the most underestimated musician on the planet and also probably one of the most advanced.
    Clapton is one of several guitar greats with whom Landreth collaborated on his latest album From the Reach Clapton also happens to be an all-time favorite for Landreth if he could choose one musician or band to go on tour with, thats who it be.

    Landreth admires many slide guitarists. He grew up listening to the Delta players and the Delta bluesmen, and later Ry Cooder and Lowell George, to name a few. As for the younger generation, I really love Derek Trucks.

    Unique technique

    Landreths unique slide techniques put him in a class of his own. They involve fretting notes and playing chords and chord fragments behind the slide which he puts on his little finger while he plays.

    Basically, the notes that you hear with the slide float above the neck on those strings, Landreth explains. Theres enough room to reach behind.

    Landreth also uses all of the fingers on his right hand for tapping, slapping and picking strings.

    I began learning finger style from Chet Atkins, Landreth says. I also found that theres a lot of different colors and sounds and things that you can do to affect sounds.

    His life in music began before he ever picked up a guitar. Landreth played trumpet while in school.

    I began playing guitar when I was 13, but I actually wanted to get a guitar much sooner, Landreth says.

    After getting his first guitar and listening to all kinds of albums and records, it was a while before he got to literally see people play slide guitar. When he first heard slide guitarists such as Robert Johnson, Landreth had to find out exactly how they got the sounds he was hearing.

    I didnt know what it was, and I started reading about it ... I began to become addicted to the sound%u201D and the vocal quality of it, Landreth says. What impressed him was How they use the sounds to support the lyrics of the song.

    Landreth cites Johnson as an example.

    The sounds he make, emulate marching feet, or the sound of wind, Landreth describes. It was more like a soundtrack to help tell the story.
    I just became aware of the enormous potential of slide guitar and creating lots of colors and sounds, Landreth says. Its a powerful way to interpret a song.

    Landreth began playing slide guitar with a metal slide, later trying out glass, even bottle necks and wine bottles. He typically uses a Dunlop in glass Pyrex to be specific slide during live shows. Leave it to Landreth to use a slide made out of a type of glass meant to be heat resistance to withstand all those sizzling slide guitar licks. "
