Colour Journey is the phenomenal second
solo album from Sun Caged guitarist Marcel
Coenen. Colour Journey will take the listener
on a voyage through many musical landscapes
that will captivate its audience. Unlike
Marcel’s debut solo instrumental album
Journey’ features a range of vocalist
who has each put their own stamp on their
respective tracks. ‘Colour Journey’
is an album to suit many moods and please
fans old and new.
the music Marcel comments:
The music is very diverse; I tried to make
an album which showed my song writing skills
more then my guitar playing skills. Of course
there are songs where I shred (New Race)
but mainly the songs are catchy and easy
to listen to. "Waiting" is a more
power metal orientated song with Mike Andersson
from Cloudscape on vocals. "Abstract
Impact" is more of a Satriani like
grooving song, and is the first instrumental.
"Patron Saint" is a prog metal
song, sort of in the style of my band Sun
Caged. It also features the drummer, keyboard
player and singer of Sun Caged. "La
Bella Mira" is an instrumental ballad
and is dedicated to my girlfriend; A beautiful
song with long passionate notes. "Traumatized
To The Bone" is the heaviest song on
the record, and even features Death Grunts.
There are 4 different singers in this song
ranging from a female voice to death metal
Factor" is an instrumental fusion track,
which also has a bass and drum solo, a very
groovy and funky track with jazzy elements.
"That Moment" is another ballad-ish
song, with a high POP music groove. The
song has been sung by Colleen Gray, a great
female singer from the USA. "The Shrink"
is the only song from the album I have not
written myself but is written by Hans In
T Zandt and a guitarist he met while he
was in the USA. This guitarist also plays
a guest solo in the song, and I re-arranged
the song and played all guitars and keys.
"V(erbal) D(efense) M(echanism) brings
back memories to bands like Alice In Chains
and Soundgarden while "New Race"
rocks your socks off, being a true 80's
metal song with high shredding guitars.
The last song on the album "Still Bleeding"
is a very atmospheric song with female vocals,
being a more gothic alike song with sympho
» Second solo album from Sun Caged guitarist
» Great varied selection of vocal and instrumental
» Guest performances from many well known
names in the metal/progressive metal field.
