Delain/Evergrey/Kobra and the Lotus at O2 Ritz Manchester UK


It was a crisp late fall afternoon on Saturday, November 12, 2016 as I, along with my girlfriend, made our way to The Ritz in Manchester England for the triple threat bill of headliner Delain, Evergrey, and Kobra and the Lotus. We arrived fairly early as I had an interview scheduled with Kobra Paige of Kobra and the Lotus. I made contact with the tour manager and we were led into the venue as Evergrey were doing their soundcheck. I waived hello to my friends, vocalist Tom Englund and guitarist Henrik Danhage who saw me from the stage and we were led into the backstage dressing rooms to conduct my interview with Kobra. It had been a year since I had last interviewed the lovely Ms. Paige when she was the special guest vocalist on Kamelot’s U.S. tour in support of Haven. As aways, Kobra was charming, engaging, and extremely wonderful to speak to. Sadly, our interview ended abruptly as Kobra was called to the stage for their soundcheck. Due to the fact that the band were unable to have a soundcheck at their previous two performances on the tour, it was imperative that Kobra joined her bandmates on stage to make sure everything was perfect for the nights show.

Kızıma…


IMG_1664Saat: 8.41 … Tam 1 saat önce doğurmuştum seni.. 14 yıl önce bugün bu saatlerde “Bebeğinizi hemen yıkayıp getiriyoruz” diyen hemşirelerin bir an önce dönmelerini bekliyordum… “Hadi artık çabuk olun.. Kızımla benim vaktimi çalmayın”..

Sonra sen geldin… dünyanın en güzel pembesini o sabah gördüm.. kundağa sımsıkı sarılmış miniminnacık bir bünye, dışarıda sadece pembe bir kafa, kendisine ait değilmiş gibi görünen bir tomar da simsiyah saç.. Hahah daha o zamanlardan havalıydın… 🙂

Sonra o kokun!!!.. Tarif edilmez, cennetten çıkma o kokun… içine çek çek bitmiyor, anlatılmaz!

Woyzeck izledim yine…


Erdal Beşikçioğlu ve Süleyman Bağcıoğlu isimlerinin aynı cümle içinde bulunduğu bir yapıt karşısında saygı duruşuna geçiyor insan tabii, ister istemez. Ama iddia ediyorum, bu iki inanılmaz sanatçıyı istediğiniz kadar tanıyın, sevin, hayranı olun; hiçbir şey sizi Woyzeck’in üzerinizde yaratacağı etkiye hazırlayamaz!

Bugimen’in İlk Albümü Nemigub, OnAir Media Reflex Etiketiyle Piyasalarda!

Bugimen’in İlk Albümü Nemigub, OnAir Media Reflex Etiketiyle Piyasalarda!


2014’te kurulan Bugimen, Nemigub adını verdikleri ilk albümlerini  OnAir Media Reflex etiketiyle yayımladı. Üç üyesinin de hem enstrümanist hem de vokalist olduğu grup, albümlerinde trajik beş kahramanın gözünden hikayelerini seslendiriyorlar:
Tüyleri için yolunan bir kaz, savaşta çalışmak zorunda kalan bir cerrah, kendinden nefret eden bir obez, ailesi tarafından öldürülen bir eşcinsel ve bir çocuk gelin…
Hikayelerin yalnızca müzikle değil, seslerle de anlatılması gerektiğini düşünen Bugimen, her parçaya bir de intro ekliyor. 10 parçadan oluşan albümün kaydını Rage Records Stüdyoları’nda yapan grup, miks ve mastering için yine Rage Records’tan Genco Kulaksız ile çalıştılar.
Yönetmenlik ve kurgusunu Bugimen’den Gurur Bozkurt’un üstlendiğin ilk klipleri Büyümem’de, kamerada Özgür Özer, ışıkta Buğra Bağış, makyajda Melis Taze’nin yardımlarıyla Bugimen, albümdeki karakterleri canlandırıyorlar.
Söyleyecekleri, gösterecekleri çok şeylerinin olduğunu düşünen grup, bu trajedileri taşıyacakları sahnelerine hazırlanıyorlar.

Büyük Birader’in “Yol” Albümü Müzik Marketlerde

Büyük Birader’in “Yol” Albümü Müzik Marketlerde


Buyuk Birader 2“YOL” son zamanların en iddialı rock gruplarından biri olan Büyük Birader’in tamamı kendi bestelerinden oluşan ilk albümü. 10 şarkıdan oluşan albüm ONAIR etiketiyle raflardaki yerini aldı.

Bora Biçer’in akustik düzenlediği şarkılara Ulaş Tercan’ın çello ve bas tecrübesiyle ve Gerçek Dorman’ın davul ve perküsyon setiyle eşlik etmesi, yeni bir tarzın oluşmasını sağlamıştır. Enstrüman zenginliği bakımından eşine az rastlanır bir trio olan Büyük Birader, hem elektrik hem akustik setle farklı bir enerji yakalamaktadır. Grubun tarzı genel olarak rock tınlasa da içinde yer yer funk, blues ve country tarzlarından da esintiler hissedilmektedir.
