PostSubject: Pontus Norgren talked about the Humanimal album   Thu Feb 08, 2007 8:53 am

Ok, maybe you're fed up with Pontus N Laughing but not me, and I've found an interesting interview from Andrew at melodicrock.
The fact is that Humanimal the band(a gem for me you can imagine) wasn't for Jeff in the first time...

Full interview here:
http://www.melodicrock.com/interviews/pontusnorgren.html

Where did the idea for the album come from?
- I came up with the idea, and asked Marcel if we could write an album together. We meet up around Christmas last year, I had a couple of days of from the Lizzy tour. We wrote the whole album in only 12 days.

And the line up - did you have to give it much thought, or was it a natural decision to involved Thomas & Marcel?
-Actually, I knew Tomas would be the perfect drummer when Marcel and me started to write the songs. And also, he's the best drummer you can find!

Did you always have Jeff in mind to do all the vocals, I recall there was some confusion first up as to whether he would sing all tracks etc.
-No, from the beginning we planed to do a theme album with different singers. But after we recorded the first couple songs we heard that it would sound better with only one front man, so we contacted Jeff and he said yes.
And what can you say, it came out to be fantastic.


I am glad he did, as this for me is one of the best examples of Jeff's hard rock vocal ability. We all know he can sing anything, but this is the hardest and toughest I have heard his vocals in years!
Over what period did you write the songs for the album?

- The hole idea came up when Marcel and I met up for mixing some old Human Clay sons, that he wanted me to remix. I asked him, shouldn¹t we do an album together. This was early summer 2000. I went on tour with Thin Lizzy, and stayed out to late December. When we where about to finish the European tour Marcel called and said, we have to write an album now. so when I got back home for Christmas I had 12 days of, and you know the rest.

Was there ever a choice to call the band Talisman again, or in this case, with you as the man behind the project, was it better to start fresh?
- I wanted to try to do something new with some one I've never worked with before, and Marcel and I had never written together. So why use a name that's not related to a project.

The project´s original idea was that they want to make a hard rock record with 3 singers: Leif Sundin (Great King Rat, John Norum, Michael Schenker Group), Jeff Scott Soto and Mats Levén (Krux, At Vance, ex-Yngwie J. Malmsteen).

After some research they decided to go with one singer, Pontus and Marcel also thought it would be easier for the listeners if we only used one.

Thanks Simon! Wink

It reminds me of the Brazen Abbot CD's, the Nikolo Kotzev's project with a lot of killer singers, Glenn Hughes, Jorn, JLT, Vikstrom, Harnell, Martensson... Huge music, huge singers!!!! Very Happy

Have you heard of the Brazen Abbot cd's? Very Happy
