Art Of Melody Music & Burning Minds Music Group are proud to announce the digital release of "Like A Dragonfly", official debut single of female AOR vocalist, Maryan. The song, written by Pierpaolo "Zorro" Monti & Davide "Dave Rox" Barbieri (with the support of British novelist Peter Darley in the lyrics department), talks about a sadly widespread problem in today's society.

Songwriter and producer, Pierpaolo "Zorro" Monti says: "This is, without any doubt, one of the deepest and important songs I've written in my entire career. It talks about a person who's fighting against anorexia, facing those demons that try to kill the hearts, minds and souls of those involved in this hard and agonizing battle. Some people think that subjects with anorexia (and other eating disorders) use it as a way of getting attention. However, this is so far from the truth. They find themselves fighting, alone, against one of the most evil conditions that can strike a person. I really hope this song will help people become sensitive to these types of difficult disorders and be ready to offer their help to those in need".

Maryan adds: " 'Like A Dragonfly' was inspired by a searing subject, so I wanted to approach this precious work with deep respect from the beginning. Then, I discovered the strong emotion I was feeling while singing every single word of the lyrics. This song also speaks about me. I think it speaks about all of us when we search for the strength to be free from our self-made chains. It was a really intense experience for me".

"Like A Dragonfly" has been mixed and mastered by Roberto Priori @ Pristudio, while the the digital art for the single has been designed by Aeglos Art (Airbound, Raintimes, Michael Kratz, Alchemy, Wheels Of Fire). Official video clip thanks to Moviedel Productions, starring Melissa Di Cianni, Maryan & Alessandro Quadrelli. Make-up by Alessia Bossi Makeup Artist.

Maryan will perform "Like A Dragonfly" live on June 8, 2019 @ Dedolor Music Headquarter, during the second awaited edition of the "Rock Temple Festival". The recordings of the full-length album are taking place under the artistic supervision of producers Pierpaolo "Zorro" Monti and Davide "Dave Rox" Barbieri. The official release date of the album will be announced in the forthcomings months.

    • 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
