All artists that appear on this benefit album have in most cases written and recorded their songs especially for ‘Embrace The Sun’, and in a number of cases these tracks represent the first recorded output with new band line-ups i.e. Ashent (new vocalist Titta Tani), Astra (new vocalist Andrea Casali), Venturia (new vocalist Florine Acquisto and drummer Frédéric Marchal) and Iron Mask (new vocalist Carsten ‘Lizard’ Schulz and drummer Ramy Ali).

 

 

 

Milan Polak is joined by some special guests in guitarists Peter Lesperance (Harem Scarem) and Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (Guns N’ Roses), whilst Kip Winger (Winger) performs bass guitar and drums come courtesy of Dennis Leeflang (Bumblefoot / Lita Ford) for the track ‘End Of Time’ which is completed by background vocals from Harry Hess (Harem Scarem).

 

 

 

The album also showcases some home-grown Japanese talent in new label signing, progressive rockers Early Cross, whilst the direct influence of the aftermath in Japan can be heard on Jennifer Batten’s track ‘Sakura Season’ was written after her visit to the country in April 2011.

 

 

 

Virtuoso guitarists unite for the closing title track which sees solos from Milan Polak, Francesco Fareri, Daniel Palmqvist (The Murder Of My Sweet), Simone Fiorletta (No Gravity), Dave Martone, Borislav Mitic, Franck Ribiere (Double Heart Project) and Lars Eric Mattsson.

 

 

 

Elsewhere the album is full of excellent new tracks that run the gamut from heavy and powerful to tender and emotional across a number of rock and metal styles.

 

 

 

Millions have been affected by the tsunami following the massive earthquake off the coast of Japan and all artists involved and all staff at Lion Music hope that the revenue generated from this release will hopefully make some difference to those affected who look to ‘Embrace The Future’.
