Classic Rock AOR: “And that, dear reader, is the understatement of the year.”Classic Rock AOR: “And that, dear reader, is the understatement of the year.”

Rob Evans från Classic Rock AOR gjorde nyligen en kort intervju med Marcus, som publicerades nu i september-numret. Kanske Marcus första intervju?

Hursomhelst, det var minst sagt kul att läsa hur Rob beskrev bandet. Marcus avslutade en förklaring om vårat sound med att orden “…It’s a mixture of classic hard rock with pomp elements.”. Var på Rob fyllde i:

“And that, dear reader, is the understatement of the year. It’s infused with the kind of pomp keyboards that would make Royal Hunt seem mundane, guitar histrionics that make Malmsteen sound like a beginner, and a lush landscape of overblown harmonics that would grace any Journey album. Go and listen to The day of return, Capricious arrows or The fools realm and tell me I’m wrong.”

Tack för den Rob 🙂

Och, när vi ändå pratar om denna artikel så är det kanske bäst att förtydliga en sak. Jag måste ha varit lite svävande på målet när jag berättat för Marcus om bandnamnets ursprung. The Rockford Heroes HAR sitt namn efter Jim Rockford i Rockford tar över.

Den första inkarnationen av bandet var mycket riktigt ett punkband. Men det punkbandet var döpt efter Jim. Eller, egentligen är det lite mer komplicerat än så, men jag kan ta detaljerna någon annan dag. Istället tycker jag att vi njuter av de bevingande orden i färg:

Rob Evans from Classic Rock AOR made a short interview with Marcus recently, which where published in this month’s issue. Might have been his first?

Anyway, it was pure joy to read how Rob described the band. Marcus finished an explanation about our sound by saying: “…It’s a mixture of classic hard rock with pomp elements.”. And Rob continued…

“And that, dear reader, is the understatement of the year. It’s infused with the kind of pomp keyboards that would make Royal Hunt seem mundane, guitar histrionics that make Malmsteen sound like a beginner, and a lush landscape of overblown harmonics that would grace any Journey album.

Thank you Rob 🙂

And, while speaking of this article, I have probably been unclear while speaking to Marcus about the subject. The Rockford Heroes IS indeed named after Jim Rockford from The Rockford Files.

Yes, the first incarnation of this band was a punk band. But that punk band was named after Jim. Well, it’s actually a little bit more complicated than that, but I leave the details out today, ok? Instead, just enjoy those winged words in color:
