â€œW.E.Tâ€ is the acronym for the bands comprised of this sensational new project. Introducing Robert SÃ¤ll, guitarist of Work of Art, Erik Martensson of Eclipse and Jeff Scott Soto, singer of Talisman.
What do these three guys have in common? They share the love for great Arena Rock Music, big melodic hooks, fiery guitars and of course the feel for magical melodies.
Why did these 3 individuals come together? These artists all part of the Frontiers Records family, who had the vision of putting two of the most promising Swedish songwriting talents around (Säll and Martensson) together with one of the most entertaining and exciting singers that has graced World stages the past few years: a force who's worked with Yngwie Malmsteen, Axel Rudi Pell, Soul SirkUS and of course US AOR legends, Journey. When asked to comment on the songs the two talented Swedes had written, JSS said "Quite simply, this is the Journey album that could have been had I continued with them!".
Enough about the who & the why, what counts most isâ€¦ how GOOD is this album really? The answer is in 13 songs that melt together with ease, influenced by Journey, Talisman, Whitesnake and Giant in a grandiose sound with a contemporary production and arrangement that is as current as the Top 10 artists around the World!
With a little help from friends such as Miqael Persson (songwriting), Magnus Henriksson (songwriting and guitars) and Robban Back on drums, W.E.T.'s debut album is served hot and ready for the release.
To compliment the CD is a DVD including 3 music videos for the songs One Love, Brothers In Arms & Comes Down Like Rain & an EPK video interview with the guys. Appearing in the videos are members of all 3 bands listed above (including recently deceased Talisman bassist Marcel Jacob), respectfully comprising one, W.E.T.!
