Back from the US where he spent 12 years playing with great musicians from New York and New Jersey, Freddy Mazzucco (guitars, songwriting & production) decided to return to the French Riviera and form his own band. Together with rock vocalist Nathalie Pellissier, bass player Christophe Canto and drummer Rob Hirons he founded the Classic Rock group Isis Child. Their first release ‘Ailleurs”’ was recorded in 2008. A year later, in 2009, Isis Child started to record their first English album called ‘Strange Days’. This record was completed in 2011 and now features 12 songs with performances by Alain Rinallo, Hugo Adamand Mathias Lechartier on bass and David Zecca and Chris Droiun on drums plus Robert Geoffroy and Julien Spreutels on keyboards as well as Magali Luyten (vocals coach plus background vocals on the song ‘Stop Looking Down On Me’) and Alex from the band Orion (background vocals on the song ‘Even If’).
The recording was handled by Gerald Jans at Noise Factory Studios (Belgium) and the mixing and mastering by Pelle Saether, singer from the band Grand design and owner of the studio ‘Underground’ in Sweden. Designer Mike Lombard was in charge for the cover artwork.
Well ok lets focus on the album which is an EXCELLENT example of an AOR / Melodic Rock mixture at its best. The fantastic voice of Nathalie Pellissier is the peak of this album. But a good voice means simply nothing if the songs are not good right? Well the songs of this release would stick int your mind from the very first time you would hear them. Focus on them and you would hear some really fantastic guitar main melodies and lead parts. It is obvious that the song writing is one of the most inspired capabilities of this band. This pure talent case closed.
Well do not ask em to pick some specific titles form this album, this album plays form the beginning to the end! Great stuff!
