This is a great record and a sign of the things to come! Seeing that Jono is still a relatively new band, there is still quite a bit of their style development left for them to uncover. Finally, the rhythm section is pretty tight, with drummer Enrico Fabris providing oodles of energy behind the kit. As far as references go, the lead vocals, as well as some theatrical flairs and occasional arrangements and lead motifs, emphasizing that association, Queen and Freddie Mercury are names that come naturally as far as associations go. Jury is still out on Jono, but I bet these guys are good live. The sound on Flies and Lies is very energetic save for the slower ballad-ish track Finally Me , with upbeat drumming and all sorts of melodies flying around in the mix. While the material on Flies and Lies is a bit monotonous, you should really consider giving it a listen. The material consists of shorter tracks, none of which goes beyond the 5 minute mark, featuring strong melodic hooks and distinct vocal approach from Johan Norrby who, to me, sounds like a mix between Freddie Mercury, Russell Mael of Sparks and Matthew Bellamy of Muse.
Some riffing and quirky moments can remind about fellow countrymen A. I am happy to announce that this is not the case with Silence where every single composition feels like it has been performed by the same collective. In 2015 is scheduled for release on May 22 via MelodicRock Records. It has been a long time since I found a rock band of this kind of music style that could get me excited. The album is launched in two different formats: a standard edition with eleven tracks, and a strictly limited edition with 3 bonus tracks and alternate cover artwork available only for the pre-orders submitted on the official label's website. The general mood is uplifting but also offers a healthy amount of depth. The other issue is that after a few listens, this album seems kind of repetitive.
Since then Jono has evolved into a real band. In November 2013, due to the very good feedbacks received from the melodic rock community, Charming Grace was signed by Japanese-based label Rubicon Music for a release in Japan official release date: 18 December 2013. I want to see and hear more. Raintime is a band from Pordenone, Italy, formed in 1999. Life is another great piece of the puzzle in the Jono discography.
The album features a clear ambition to unify the many sides of the band, in some cases within one and the same performance. The music is setting the scene for incredible voice to lead the way towards a shore. The first thing that struck me was the captivating vocals of Johan Norrby. Compositionally, their album 'Requiem' gives a nod to the past, while its feet are planted in the present. Puts me in a good mood. The rest of the compositions are all quite enjoyable and well-paced but I feel like they never top the two highlights that I've mentioned previously.
To be honest, I think that a few songs like To Be Near You and especially Trust could have been trimmed just a little bit. But even though these shorter and quirkier compositions manage to build the groundwork for an excellent album, it's actually some of the quiet moments that make this album a true gem for fans of progressively inclined rock music. But this doesn't take away from my overall enjoyment of this album. I have been mesmerized by this band's ability to constantly create high quality melodically driven compositions boosted by equally skilled musicianship. They demonstrate an admirable command to exhibit a fantastic soundstage. Silence is good when it's loud, but it may be better in the quiet moments. The guitar riff, which dominates most of this track, is highly addictive and you'll probably catch yourself humming it a few days after hearing it.
A record was made released in 2006 , involving some of the members of todays band setting. This is not necessarily a bad thing for a new band that have not yet found their own sound, so I'm not holding these moments against JoNo. I really like that this transformation has managed to make their music influences less prominent and thus making their material sound a lot more original. Anyway, this was an exceptional find - Thank you, Jono! Bluntly, whoever mixed this did a great job. Thus being signed to a record label that expects them to keep a specific style might not be the best thing for the band. But this is really no complaint as much as personal wishful thinking.
Definitely, Jono has what it takes to catch many, many ears. Posted Wednesday, January 22, 2014 Review 1117771. They then recorded an instrumental demo entitled Jump in the Past. Silence has quite a few of these moments scattered all throughout the album with Wasting Time, Your Bread and The One To Blame being the most obvious examples of instantly recognizable tracks that one just can't stop listening to. Even though I highly enjoy all sides of the band's repertoire, there was a lack of coherency between them. Leo Olsson - also a busy musician - joined the band in 2015.
Unlike the debut album that was in fact a solo record by the band's front man Johan Norrby, Requiem features arrangements and recordings that were clearly made by a band. Creed: From Zero to Platinum. Sailors kicks things of with a mid-tempo guitar riff and the overall structure of the composition reminds me of the previous album opener Man Of Misery, which is a nice way of saying that Jono is back and the band is sounding as good as ever. While the songs are written well, most of them are samey in the riffs department, and not many adventures are taken in their structuring. This was of course pure speculation on my part, luckily this release turned out to be another keeper! Downside is another peak from the album as the composition goes through many twists before delivering one of the strongest choruses of the album.
Monti appears in it once again as drummer and main songwriter, and for the first time in the role of co-producer, supporting the work of. The band's second compilation album, , was released in November 2015. The overall impression is that here is a band at the very top of their game. This album is definitely a continuation of those two albums but there is definitely a feeling that Jono are beginning to uncover some new ground for themselves and it wouldn't surprise me if their next outing is going to be a career defying masterpiece. Remember that this album is far from the team effort and thus does not yet feature some of the instrumental prowess that is shown later on. In December 2009, the band's live video album was released.
