Amen-Ra goes acoustic with Ovation
I am more than excited to tell you that I am now part of the Ovation acoustic guitar family! In the early days of Lordi, we didn't want to have any acoustic or clean sounds on our albums. We just wanted loud electric guitars. Little by little, we started to add some clean sound here and there, but you probably won't even hear those all! And yeah, years and albums went by, and then we reached the point where we were even ready for an acoustic guitar solo! (»Granny's Gone Crazy« from the album »Babez for Breakfast«). When we were working on this new release, »Lordiversity « (7 album box set), we found out that we needed more and more real acoustic guitar sound. Then with the big help of Nalle, Gewa Music contacted me and after few meetings with Thomas Neuhierl (from Gewa), I signed the contract with Ovation guitars. I could not be happier with this opportunity to work with this legendary company! I have always loved the Ovation guitar design - it's something different and that's what I like, standing out ;) Those guitars are also great to play for a guy like me who has a strong electric guitar background. I will talk more about the sound later, but I tell you this - it is exactly how I want the acoustic guitar to sound. You will hear it on the new albums and someday live too!
Woah, this is crazy - me being part of the Ovation family - life can be adventurous and this is the trip I feel honored to take!
Stay safe, love <3,
