Melodic Revolution Records and Amadeus Awad are proud to welcome the internationally renowned bassist and songwriter Kristoffer Gildenlöw (Solo & Pain of Salvation). Kristoffer is recording bass and holding down the rhythm section with Marco Minnemann for a upcoming Neo-Prog release due out this summer.
Here is what Kristoffer Gildenlöw said about this collaboration:
“Amadeus has made some great progressive hard rock/metal and keeping up with Maco is a great way to stay sharp, coz that man’s all over the place. Amadeus asked me to lay down my “signature” fretless playing so that’s what I’m working at right now. Digging in to it, making it sing, slide and bend. Playing progressive music on a fretless and making it sound fretless is actually much more difficult than with other music genres due to the speed, accuracy and composition. You really have to plan your playing carefully and play much more intense and over exaggerated in order to get the right effect and feel. Guess that’s a reason it’s not being done as much. It’s really hard work!”
Both Amadeus Awad and Kristoffer Gildenlöw are endorsed by Mayones Guitars & Basses
