"I have to mention that the making of Paranormal Paradise was amazing...quite fun actually...what an incredible time to be alive as a musician!"
The title may appear slightly misleading(and by the way, it ain't as scary as you might think).
Temporary Power's "Paranormal Paradise" doesn't really deal with science, nor does it investigate the paranormal.
Mike explains it best:
"The topic of this CD is the giant differences between science's weights and measures and religion's deeper meaning into the grand picture."
The CD's tracks seem to be a rather cool ongoing musical journey about the unknown.
"This CD is brought to you by the number 3; I get that there are three main communities when it comes to phenomena in general: "Goofy New Agers, who accept the paranormal in the context of an absolute thing in their broader quest for spiritual knowledge, wide eyed and naive parapsychologists, who define paranormal phenomena to include a narrow range of phenomena for which they seek a scientific basis and skeptics or non-believers, who adamantly oppose all paranormal beliefs and claims."
If you are anything like most music lovers, you are ready for a great imagination and mind adventure...so take it up a notch with the music of Temporary Power!
"Our rich American culture also has a huge sub or para-culture heavily into music. It is within this para-culture that these three ways of thinking construct our little worlds."
This is the daring and adventurous stuff you have been looking for that you can't always find just anywhere; music you can stimulate your imagination with as the one and only Temporary Power brings you an incredible world of wonder and speculation.
"I live for imagination fuel...I can't get over how great it is to make music and all these great feelings are just a mere listen away...this is what really excites and inspires me as a human being."
Excellent modern musical composition is the key ingredient in this cool mind blowing experience!
"I don't care what anybody says, there is only one way to KEEP IT REAL...work really hard...and do your art!"
You are invited to a world of music created with pure artistic intention in mind. Love for music, love for life, love for recording, love of the imagination and creativity and appreciation for the listener with the simple need to share great music with the world!
"I have poured my heart into this music project, driven from a place deep within to get these songs recorded and out into reality."
Many, many hours of practice and many sleepless nights and self sacrifice go into making a good recording dream a reality.
"No doubt being a musician is a rather strange experience at times and a sacrifice for family and friends, too, so I thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for trusting me with all that time I have put into my craft and the countless hours put in the studio...it is what it takes to make this happen."
Mike had been a part of the South Florida music scene for many years now, dedicated to playing bass and guitar in bands like Barabbas Conspiracy, Centurion 6 and Profacy.
"I hope you will enjoy my solo efforts in the Temporary Power projects, where I have found the priceless artistic freedom to create this very unique and powerful musical art form."
This unique musical offering to is a musical photograph, incorporating incredible guitar washes of tone and effects and the progressive song writing nature of Temporary Power projects.
"I've really enjoyed blending my love of sci-fi, the paranormal and progressive rock into this tightly woven musical journey and had to completely find that zone where we trust ourselves as musicians on this CD, daring to strike out into the unknown even more."
