ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Debut Album from Austrian Vintage Progressive Power Trio.

SCARY NIGHT
(Music & Lyrics by Patrick Nagl)
A song about a dream with lyrical hints to Ronnie James Dio.
This was performed live by The Jaybirds earlier in this century but never recorded properly nor released officially... until now!

GONE TOO SOON
(Music & Lyrics by Christian Loebenstein)
Originally written and demoed in 6/8 time back in 2003, this is a tribute to Jeff, Steve, John, George, Phil (your guess!), standing for all the great musicians that have... gone too soon!

NEW FRONTIERS
(Music & Lyrics by Christian Loebenstein)
This song goes back as far as 1994, and a demo recording with piano, acoustic guitar, live drums and different lyrics was recorded sometime back in the day. Our tribute to the classic Jack Bruce/Pete Brown song Theme For An Imaginary Western in the style of Mountain.

STRANGERS WHEN WE MEET
(Music by Patrick Nagl & Christian Loebenstein, Lyrics by Christian Loebenstein)
A real collaboration, originally titled 'Go Away'. Patrick came with the music to a rehearsal one day, Christian changed the chorus and had a lyric that worked perfectly with the music. Trivia: Our first drummer, Thomas, never liked it! ;-)

THE EDGE OF LIFE
(Music & Lyrics by Christian Loebenstein)
Originally written and demoed by Christian in March 1995 and then re-arranged in 2001 this song features beautiful layers of Mellotron, ... and some Hammond! Also, note Patrick's jazzy octaving!
We'd like to dedicate this song to Mel Galley (1948-2008), founding member and guitarist of Trapeze. R.I.P.

CAN YOU HEAR ME
(Music by Patrick Nagl & Christian Loebenstein, Lyrics by Christian Loebenstein)
Another real collaboration between Patrick & Christian, we literally wrote this in the rehearsal room, combining riffs and musical ideas - verse & bridge by Patrick, chorus and solo section by Christian, lyrics by Christian - another old lyric that luckily was on hand and fits perfectly!

ANOTHER QUIET MILE
(Music & Lyrics by Patrick Nagl & Robert Wittman, additional Lyrics by Christian Loebenstein)
Arranged by Medusa
Our re-recording (Stefan loves to play this!) of the classic Music Apartment song, which was originally released on the Takin' A Detour Vol.3 CD-Compilation in 2006. Executed quite differently from the original, it has become a benchmark in our live-set.

A SECOND EARTH
(Music & Lyrics by Christian Loebenstein)
Our little Prog-Rock epic, 8 minutes long in its entirety. Originally written back in 1996, it consists of various parts and really shines in its studio version with lots of piano and keyboards added!

Just Dynamite
A very solid recording that was everything I had hoped for and considerably more. The album definately has Uriah Heep and Trapeze built right in, but there are also some prog moments, a little Kinks and even a hint of Deep Purple. I have been spinning this disc regularly, and you should too.

Medusa
A solid release that splits the difference between classic power trio Trapeze, early 70's Scorpions and Uriah Heep. Alternately progressive and jamming, without getting carried away. If you're lamenting the fact that they don't make bands like they used to, stop whining and give Medusa a spin. They deserve your support.
