December 1, 2014

With "Eye On The Sky" the Finnish STARGAZERY already released their debut on Pure Legend Records. Almost four years later we’re proud to announce, that the successor "Stars Aligned" is finally ready to conquer.

The well-known trademarks also have been put down on the second album: melodic, keyboard-driven Heavy Metal, often very similar to Hard Rock. Idols like Rainbow and Black Sabbath (with Tony Martin on vocals) can be heard as influences very well. A clean, strong production, the sophisticated, melodic vocals from Ex-MSG-singer Jari Tuira and a Blackmore-inspired guitar refine all twelve songs into a masterpiece of melodic heaviness. As bonus we deliver the in their mother tongue recorded track "Tumma Nainen". Again, "Stars Aligned" will satisfy every fan of the mentioned classics!

Release: January 23rd 2015
Label: Pure Legend Records

Tracks: 1. Voodoo
2. Angel Of The Dawn
3. Missed The Train To Paradise

Laulajan mietteitä , " Sessio Stargazery "

Terve kaikille!

Ensimmäisen Stargazery albumin lead laulu sessiot ovat nyt ohi. Kaikkiaan 4 kertaa , jos oikein muistan, kävin Oulussa äänittämässä Jukan ja Peten kera vokaaleja ja raitoja kertyi 12 kipaletta. Studio oli mukava ja Jukan ohjauksessa mukava toimia. Aikataulu kyllä tuntui venyvän mutta kaikella on kait tarkoituksensa. Nyt jo entisenä Michael Schenker Group vokalistina , on itseasiassa kiva todeta, että duuni suomalaisten kanssa on kuitenkin se mitä halusinkin. Siinä on vaan enemmän hmm... sitä mikä pitää selän suorassa. Ja vähemmän sellaisia toimenpiteitä mikä sai ainakin mulle herneet nenään ollessani MSG:ssa. Toki huippuhetkiä MSG:n kera oli paljon enemmän. Siitä kiitos Michaelille ja kumppaneille. Sain nähdä ja kokea sen mikä kuitenkin on suurimmaksi osaksi haavetta useimmille.

No niin,
äänitettyjä biisejä on siis 12 ja ovat nimetty seuraavasti,

" How Many Miles"
- tämä oli eka biisi jonka demolauloin kauan sitten Tampereella.
osa lienee sen kuullut, diggaan kyllä kovasti, höh... " Headless Cross", Black Sabbath
- HAAA!!! nyt tempasi mukaan meikän ja pahasti. Tony Martin laulama biisi on kolissut mulle aina ilmestymisestään lähtien. Hevanderia niinkuin se parhaimmillaan vedetään. Miksi siis koveroitiin, no siksi että me tykättiin siitä ja aika maukas versio lauluja myöten saatiin aikaiseksi. Ja tietysti nykysoundit vielä erottavat alkuperäisestä. Modenisointia tässä mielessä. Tony on ollut huikea laulaja aikanaan.

" Puppet On A String"
- Nukke stringeissään. Jep jep.. Tarinaa vastentahtoisuudesta. Liittyykö elettyyn elämään? No totta kai ja mainio menopala siitä tulikin.

" Keep Your Eye On The Sky"
- nopea biisu ja oli hyvä meisinki tätäkin vetäessä. Tarttui kuin purkka tukkaan ja sain heitettyä maneerit syrjään ja olin vain Jari.

" Murder In The Sky" Gary Moore
- toinen laina on Karilta ja pelaa, pelaa oikein hyvin. Hieman tuntematon , luojan kiitos, mutta tunnetulta kitarasankarilta. Sen huomasin että tuon kultaisen kauden kaiffareilla punainen lanka on ollut läsnä. Hyvä on ammentaa nykynuoren :)

" Jester Of Kings "
- viimeisimmästä sessiosta taasen tarttuvahko , lievän metallinen perinteinen heavyrock biisi. Sanomakin on vaffa ja ah niin tosielämästä kuin voi. Oikeasti.

" Everytime I Dream "
- Hidas kipale jota on aina nautinto laulaa, sitä on siis esitetty livenä, kahdesti.

" Dying "
- julkaistu myös nettisinkkuna. Uudelleen äänitetty myöskin. Jotkut lienee kuulleet tämän.

" I..m The Night "
- jumankeka, en olis ikinä kuvitellut että bändin nimeltä Scorpions vois liittää tähän mutta nyt kyllä jonkinverran todella soundaa siihen suuntaan.

" S.O.S. "
- Now your SOS is real !!!! Mietippä ,niin mietin ja tein myös . Ekan session äänityksiä ja viimeksi kun kuuntelin tämän niin totesin että ei ole lisättävää. Hyvä näin.

" Judah "
- siellä mennään mikä on minulle ollut aina inspiroiva lähde. Taivaallisia/ mytologisia teemoja alkuperästä, mikä on ollut ja mikä on oleva. Tämä on sitä heviä.
Tämä on heviä minun kirjoissani.

" ? "
- tästä biisistä ei vielä puhuta mitään.

Siinähän sitä. Onneksi se on nyt osaltani ohitse ja voin todeta että kyllä tässä taas kaikki laitettiin peliin mitä oli. Vilpittömästi, mikä ei liene aina paras vaihtoehto. Levystä on tulossa tosi hieno debyytti ja ehkä aikanaan sitten keikkailemme tältä pohjalta. Paljon on vielä tekemistä mutta hyvää kannattaa odottaa. Oulun poikien viimeistellessä omia raitojaan voin paneutua nyt soolo albumini detaljeihin. Sami Ala- Lahden, tuottaja, kanssa olemme kaikessa rauhassa tehneet JTF- albumia ja myös tässä on lauluäänitykset ohi mutta laitan oman blogin tästä myöhemmin. Erinomaista tulossa myös tästä.

Kohtaamisiin

Terveisin
Jari Tiura

And not to worry, English translation is on the way... :)
