Marc Vanderberg : “Higway Demon” CD 7th September 2017 Darksign Records. German Hard Rock/ Heavy Metal guitarist. This time Marc decided to choose one singer Raphael Gazal to sing all the song except one which is instrumental. If you have listened or bought the singles recently spread other the net you will love the whole album for sure! Starting by an awesome song “Bad paradise ” that kicks straight from the first note .
Second track “Blue Eyes” is on the same line with vocal melodies that gets you in love with the songs, solos ripping it out your heart it’s just a pure masterpiece. It is all written within the strong lyrics how the song were created. The title album “Highway Demon” is the third track and keeps you shaking there is no time to stop you are on the highway driving with rockin tunes and melodies, was created 25 years ago by Oliver Deleker and modified by Marc to get a new life.
The fourth track gets down the mood to a kinda ballad “how do you feel” about cancer once again changed other the years and the voice of Raphael puts a tear to you, very emotional song. The last song has Stefan Lindholm playing a solo the song called “you’re a poison” getting a Alice Cooper touch.
The instrumental song ‘total eclipse’ is inspired by Nita Strauss ‘s “pandemonium” track you can check on utube.
