News from RR: New Album and New Keyboardist.

Post by NeverendingAbyss » Mon May 24, 2010 9:02 pm

From Blabbermouth-
REVOLUTION RENAISSANCE, the band led by former STRATOVARIUS mastermind Timo Tolkki (guitar; ex-STRATOVARIUS), has set "Trinity" as the title of its forthcoming third album, tentatively due in the fall via Napalm Records. The CD, which is once again being engineered by Santtu Lehtiniemi, follows a more "power metal" direction than its predecessor, last year's "Age Of Aquarius", although it will not be a clone of Timo's previous efforts with STRATOVARIUS. The vocals and the drums — which are being handled by REVOLUTION RENAISSANCE's Brazilian contingent, consisting of Gus Monsanto and Bruno Agra, respectively — were recorded in Brazil. According to Tolkki, the new CD will sound "very organic and natural, but also very modern."

In other news, REVOLUTION RENAISSANCE has tapped FIREWIND's Bob Katsionis as its new keyboardist. The band's current lineup is as follows:

Gus Monsanto - Vocals
Timo Tolkki - Guitar
Magnus Rosén - Bass
Bruno Agra - Drums
Bob Katsionis - Keyboards

REVOLUTION RENAISSANCE in October 2009 parted ways with bassist Justin Biggs and keyboardist Michael Khalilov because it "became evident to everybody that REVOLUTION RENAISSANCE was not the right band for the guys," the group said in a statement. "Justin is more of a thrash guy and Mike expected the music to be something totally different. Out of these reasons the decision has been made that it is better to go separate ways."

REVOLUTION RENAISSANCE recently signed a three-album deal with Napalm Records.

Recorded over three months in Finland, REVOLUTION RENAISSANCE's sophomore album, "Age Of Aquarius", was released in March 2009 via Scarlet Records. It was described in a press release as "by far the darkest, heaviest and most symphonic album that Tolkki has ever been involved in."

Power Metal 8)
And Tolkki os back on track!

Also, i wouldn't blame him if it has a Strato-sound sometimes... I mean, most Strato songs were composed by him, it's just his way of making music. We'll see how this comes in the end. :D

Evrything is and was always "strange" in RR.

It was never hacked, eproctolagniac. :roll:
He deleted the account himself in a desperate bid for attention :puke:

The A family created a new account with the same name. :viking:

Then the corpulent composer seized the opportunity like the last sandwich at a deli, and the maschalophilous musician placed the blame upon the humble and misunderstood A's. :cry:

There was a guy on Myspices,

He was hacked in smaller and smaller pieces,

And what sort of a devil,

And could you believe this shit,

His Harvesterpersonallity did it,

Peed on his art,

And that was the start,

Of the Statements so tartelitart.

And that was not so very smart....

Well, finally some nice material, let's hope so :)

So now it's definite, such a great keyboardist!

Thanks for this news

It is bad to see good musicians getting sucked into Tolkki's crazy drama.

It's been a long time since there was any RR news. Would be cool if TT could tell the fans what they've been doing lately.

Tolkki said it would be in september but just like every other record it will most likely be a bit later.

I heard the album will be delayed because his cheese-factory job is taking up most of his time. A co-worker of his had received this link from him in an email titled "The Revolution has begun!"
