Looking for info on Mark Weitz


Recommended Posts

Hey guys. I was wondering if anybody knows of anything Mark Weitz has done other than,

 

Eyes - Fullmoon and,

Ramos - Living in the light

 

I've always loved his voice but can't find anything other than these two. I find it hard to believe he hasn't done anything else.

I've tried google, wiki, etc, but to no avail.

Sorry mate, got no answers, but wow, I never knew the same guy on the 3rd Eyes album sung on the Ramos album. There's something new I have learnt today. Thanks for the info... cool little fact I never knew.

No worries mate. Apparently he was with "Americade" briefly, but didn't record anything and i've read elsewhere that he was with the bands "Malice" and "Odin" at some point but again, i can't find anything from those bands with him included. It's a long time between drinks between "Eyes" and Ramos". Maybe he took a break from the industry. I don't know.

Malice and Odin were definitely a lot more screechy and metal than Eyes or Ramos... would have been interesting. Good luck in your search!

 

There's some very good vocalists from that whole era who basically disappeared without a trace, or a very faint trace. Biggest one for me was always Rory Cathey (or whatever he goes by these days) from Cold Sweat. What a shame he didn't put that magic voice on more stuff.

Mate, are you fan of Impellitteri? :tumbsup:

 

Because, allegedly, Chris recorded some tracks with this dude and they were shelved. I'm looking forward to listen to them.

 

 

Once I've tried to get an intierview with Chris for a fanzine I was writing for but he never responded.

 

Nowadays, I don't care, I only use spotify.

Yeah, i read he sang with impellitteri also , but as with the above mentioned bands, i can't find a thing. That would have been a killer combo!

My father is actually Mark Weitz. He still records and sounds just as good as always. If interested let me know.

Very, very interested!!!

Tell your Dad he's an absolute legend.

I've been listening to this style of music for a long time and his voice is right up there with the best of them.

One of the most underrated and under used voices in the business.

Any info on any other recordings he's done would be very much appreciated.

Thanks for posting mate and please thank your Dad for giving me many years of listening pleasure.

I sent a PM to Mark's "son" when he posted. I'm still waiting for a reply. The "Eyes" Full moon demo album is still one of my favourites. I love this track. "I took a long hard look through my little black book and she's the only one with "disinfection"..". beautiful stuff.

Also here is a link to Mark singing in Malice. He sounds so much like James Neal, it's scary. I went to jr. highschool with Mark. Really cool dude. Great singer.

    • From FaceBook   Midnite City     · IT'S OFFICIAL! We have now started work on what will become our fourth album which will be coming your way in 2023. The songs are written and the work has begun. As with our previous albums, it's never a quick process. We have a long journey ahead of us, but the work starts now! Look out for lots of studio updates
    • This is a good one. The Deluxe Edition from MelodicRock Classics looks interesting. See below:  
    • New songs. From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is thrilled to announce the upcoming release of Perfect Plan's third studio album, "Brace For Impact". Over the course of their first two albums, "All Rise" and "Time For A Miracle", the Swedes have quickly established themselves as a new gold standard in not only the Scandinavian melodic rock genre, but the melodic rock genre as a whole. "Brace For Impact" does nothing to slow that momentum and fans should do exactly as the album's title says in preparation for their latest opus.  Produced by the band, songwriting started in August 2021 for "Brace For Impact" and was wrapped up by the end of the year. The band then spent January of this year working on arrangements and pre-production work before starting the process of recording in the first week of February. Asked about the musical direction of the album, vocalist Kent Hilli says, "Well, hard question...we didn’t think too much about that when we started writing as we want everything to come naturally to us. All we focused on and wanted to do was to write really great melodic rock songs with great riffs and melodies. But I think we have more ”rockers” on this album than before. I would say that it's melodic rock in general, but maybe slightly harder than our previous albums. But much like our second album, ”Time For A Miracle” we have a great mixture between hard rock, melodic rock, and AOR in there...and some songs even have some elements of progressive rock and some bluesier elements mixed in also. And we have just one ballad on this album. Our goal when writing an album is that it should feel like playing songs on a jukebox and I think we have succeeded with that on this album. Everything sounds like PERFECT PLAN 3.0, really! I think we have definitely pushed everything up a notch from songwriting and lyrics to arrangements and overall performance and sound. With the addition of the great Tobias Lindell who does the mixing…everything sounds really big and majestic I think!" Sometimes the stars align and create a perfect balance of talent within a group. A band like Perfect Plan is the “perfect" (pun intended) example of that: a superb singer, a well-oiled band of experienced players, and a great songwriting talent with a knack for unforgettable melodies and driving rhythms. Add to that the right single released at the right time and Perfect Plan’s emergence as immediate rising stars on the melodic rock scene is no surprise. The song that “built” their reputation is of course the awesome “In and Out of Love,” the first single/video that kicked off the promotion of the band’s 2018 debut album “All Rise,” released on Frontiers in April of that year. The band followed their debut album with the sophomore release "Time For A Miracle" in 2020. Hyperbole aside, it was a major step forward across the board. Opting for a slightly heavier and more “in your face” sound, Perfect Plan matured and created an outstanding balance of melodies and energy, with the obvious references to the sound of the classics (think Foreigner, Survivor, The Storm, Giant, etc.) and Scandinavian AOR with a recognizable and personal feel. So, after a stunning debut and sticking the landing with their second album, what does Perfect Plan have up their sleeve for an encore? Well, all we can say is..."Brace For Impact”! Tracklisting: 1. Surrender 2. If Love Walks In 3. Can’t Let You Win 4. Gotta Slow Me Down 5. Stop The Bleed 6. My Angel 7. Devil’s Got The Blues 8. Bring Me A Doctor 9. Still Undefeated 10. Emelie 11. Walk Through Fire Line-Up: Kent Hilli - Lead vocals Rolf Nordström - Guitar Leif Ehlin - Keyboards Fredrik Forsberg - Drums Mats Byström - Bass   https://perfectplan.se facebook
