Der verdammt prominente Schottische Sänger Doogie White (Rainbow, Michael Schenker Fest, Yngwie Malmesteen u.v.m.) und der schwedische Gitarrist Emil Norberg von Persuader haben eine musikalische Allianz geschmiedet. Das Ergebnis ist das gemeinsame „Isle Of Wrath“ Album, das am 06. August herauskommen wird. Entsprechend Doogies musikalischer Geschichte geht die Single ’Master Of Illusion’ in Richtung 70er bzw. 80er Hard Rock und Metal.
„As a big fan of the line of heritage from Deep Purple to Rainbow onwards to what Yngwie Malmsteen explored with that basic sound, I tried to tap into what made me love those albums growing up. Although impossible to copy, I took a shot at making my own interpretation of the sound of what I think are the best rock albums to date in my opinion“.
„I think working on this first Long Shadows Dawn album, something new and exciting, helped me get through the lockdown pretty much unscathed. Emil and I had no fixed plan other than to write killer tunes. We went out on a musical limb on some songs taking a bold view of the future and respectfully pulling from the well of the past. Lyrically it needed to be dark, but hopeful. Sad, but uplifting. I think we managed that. I hope it touches people’s spirits,“
