Nordic Hard Rock For Peace (feat. Goran Edman, Matti Alfonzetti, Pontus Snibb and others)


Recommended Posts

Nordic Hard Rock For Peace's first single, "Hellbound Train" (Art Of Melody Music/Burning Minds Music Group), is available for streaming and download on all digital platforms.


The Nordic Hard Rock For Peace initiative was instigated by Peter Hermansson and Martin Jepsen Andersen, during writing sessions for the follow-up to Hermansson’s acclaimed solo album, "Second Glance", which was co-produced by Andersen himself. Exactly in the middle of the songwriting process, the two Scandinavian musicians (Hermansson from Sweden, Andersen from Denmark) happened upon the foundations of what was to become the song "Hellbound Train". While the duo was working on the song, Russia began its aggressive invasion of Ukraine, and, impressed with the song's potential, Hermansson came up with the idea of turning it into an all-star, ensemble-cast song commenting on the present, horrible situation in Ukraine.

Later, with the gracious help and participation from friends and colleagues in mainly the Swedish hard rock scene, "Hellbound Train" has seen the light of day. All proceeds from the release will be donated to the Red Cross and their relief efforts for the people of Ukraine.

I know their heart is in the right place but I kinda really hate the whole political/charity all star release thing. It dates the music and kinda sucks the enjoyment out of it. A pass for me on any of these "I support the current thing" songs.
