FROST
« on: Fri, 2005-09-30, 08:29:59 »
I don't know if you already know this.
FROST is a band (I don't know everything about it) with John Mitchell playing the guitars!
on their official website you can download some examples!

In fact, I find it very new, and I'm not sure about that genre...

I will follow this "Million Town" project anyway.

Regards,

Paco

Whoa, cool. I like what I hear, extremely! This sounds very promising!

Who's Jem Godfrey?

I don't know who Jem Godfrey is... Never heard of him...

Anyway he's singing on this one.

There are other samples on this website than there was before...

By the way, I'm liking this more than I did at first.

*BUMP*

I begin to like this more and more now.
It almost sounds like something similar to Kino. (But Frost is heavier).

Even the front cover for Frost's Milliontown is designed by Paul Tippett who also did the cover for Kino's Picture!!



The album is being mastered on February 3rd.

There'll be an epic song that lasts 23 minutes and 45 seconds!!
And when I listened to No Me No You sample I thought I heard John Mitchell sing! It's so similar. Maybe he does backing vocals too.

Promising stuff.

Yes John did sing for this

Anyway, this afternoon before I staggered off home, I managed to capture the voice of John Mitchell who's added his lovely rasp to a couple of the tracks.

It's really fun to read the blog on FROST's site!

I digged into the archive and found something funny:

That's for the people who like Genesis!

There is now an almost finished version of Black Light Machine (10:05) with opening vocals by John and loads and loads of really great/magnificent/awesome guitar also by John, check it out at the link above.
I've got to say i'm really liking where some of this modern prog is going!

I've been listening to this song for the last couple of weeks. At first I thought: 'What the %!^#&' but now I am totally into it. Great track! Looking forward to the album.

Arena is one of the bookest bands I ever came across. Of course not as book as Genesis which still remains the bookest band on earth.
By the way, I think it's also very book outside nowadays.

How dare you say Genesis is the bookest band on an Arena-forum! Shame on you! You obviously think you are book, but guess what: You are not!  :P ;D ;)

Book down, book down! ;D


Anybody heard anything new about the album?? I can hardly wait...



EDIT: This is soooooooo hilarious!
Jem Godfrey's rendition of a Genesis classic, "All In A Mouses Night" sung to the tune of "Fit, But You Know It" by The Streets.

"C'mon baby, let the poor thing go..."
"I'm not sleeping with that fucking thing around here, no!"
LOL

*written by Tony Banks*

So hilarious.

Have a read of Jem's blog for some more little tasters of Milliontown and the work involved in getting it on the road.

I've been listening to the full sample of Black Light Machine for weeks now, I'm totally blown away and convinced: I HAVE to buy this, it's amazing.

Jem Godfrey will be doing something on the next KINO album too!

Who's Jem Godfrey?

Jem Godfrey played keys in a band called "Freefall"
http://www.lazygunrecords.com/freefall/freefall.htm

The release of "Milliontown" is planned for the summer 2006, followed by a tour in autumn. Look for the "Frost - Milliontown" topic on the IQ forum website.

Cheers, Michael

I've put Black Light Machine on a CD a few days ago and found myself listening to it nearly everyday.
It's just an amazing song with a lot of odd twists and an absolutely BRILLIANT guitarsolo.

Does anyone have heard something by Freefall? I don't know it. But it's not prog is it?

The music of Freefall was a mixture of prog and metal elements: http://www.gepr.net/fm.html#FREEFALL
You can turn to the IQ-Forum at http://www.gep.co.uk/iq/ and try to contact Jem Godfrey (Nick: Jem) for further informations.

I'd suggest that the easiest way of contacting Jem is via his blog http://www.milliontown.blogspot.com/, as commenting has recently been turned on.

Looks like Milliontown will release July 24th generally in Europe, but July 21st in Germany for some reason, and July 18th in the US, all on Inside Out Records.

Why first the US? And then Germany?? And then Europe? Which means UK gets it last. Jem lives in UK but it's the country which get it last...

Strange.

Ahh it's just a matter of a few days.

I guess it's the logic of a predominatly US distributor who works through different channels in different regions, though why Germany is not in Europe I can't fathom out, and at this point I'll save you all the Euro rant ;)
