The mighty Pete KingBaltak from BattleGod Productions in Sydney. Siam discussions...
SIAM. There is a New Age Calling.......
After what is really 17 years, since Siam's second album, 'PRAYER' was delivered, I think it's time to stamp the book and produce one final album from the band and its members. And the members have expanded, of course. And I think that's a good thing. Many, 'Signals Of Intuition', 'Languages of Menace', Interactions, Christians, and God knows, there have been many 'Nightflights to Heaven' and 'Last Sunrises', that's for sure. And the less said about, 'Animus', the better.
But, so be it. They may never forgive us on Cato St.
There is an, 'Unfinished Business' in this, as Steve Harris would say, so I intend to finish it.
It was a formidable band, but somehow never saw it's complete fruition..
The third and final album ensues, with members of Siam from the 90's and other fine and talented musicians that also deserve to vent such passion and depth of soul on this closure.
Progressive metal ?
I dont know whether we had heard of that term between 1992-6, but we didn't care anyway.
Regardless, SIAM 3 is under the tip of the pen and being written. 17 years or not, it still doesn't matter. Rock music is timeless, whatever genre you want to label it.
Gary Moore Tribute, Stopp Pressen, Oslo.
Tore St.Moren; a shot from the Gary Moore Tribute evening, it was great to play Gary's songs, for us, the guy is very much still alive. We hope to play some more shows to honour Gary's work in the near future.

15 February, MUSICFLEKKEN, SANDVIKA.
Now the single is all but complete, I have to settle on a competent mix engineer to complete the job !!! There are so many talented people available, it's difficult to know where to start, but in the meantime, it's back to writing and there's a lot of it to do. We have press and camera crew in studio today and then a hop to Trondheim for a sizeable function.

A great day today filming and recording with TNT and Ivar 'Ravi' Johansen for the forthcoming show, 'Hidden Treasures'/ 'Skjulte Skatter', to be broadcast on TV3 in March this year. A lot of fun, digging all sorts of crazy stuff out of our past to lay in front of the public for auction. A superb production team at Ronni Le Tekro's 'Studio Studio', in Nyhagen.
