Hello, my dear friends! The recording sessions for a new possible album continue very soon. As soon as the fan is working again and as soon as I have gathered more money :) Cheerio
Moin, ihr wenigen treuen Freunde! Die Aufnahmen zum möglichen nächsten Album werden bald fortgesetzt. Zuerst jedoch benötigt es einen funktionierenden Ventilateuuuur und auch ein bisschen Kohle

(Engl/Deutsch) New "just for fun" recording session with continuing UPDATES!!!! (Last Update May 16th)

ORIGINAL NEWS IN English & Deutsch!
(ENGLISH) Back in studio, recording a brand new track, which comes out soon. I release this just for fun.
All the other tracks I have recorded within the last years need more time. But it looks good
(DEUTSCH) Zurück im Studiolein. Ich nehme gerade ein neues Liedchen auf, welches außer der Reihe bald rauskommt. Einfach so zum Spaß.
All die anderen Lieder, die in den letzten Jahren aufgenommen wurden, benötigen noch etwas Zeit

(Engl.) The mood is so good that I am already working on 3 new tracks....Looks like its going to be an EP

(Deut.) Die Stimmung ist so gut momentan, dass ich bereits an 3 neuen Stücken arbeite.
Schaut wohl dann doch nach ner EP aus.

UPDATE 2  (May, 16th 2018..late at night)
(Engl.) I didn't expect the recording sessions to go that well. In the meanwhile I have started to work on Song Nr. 5, so we all can expect a new album instead of only one song.
The songs are partly rough, dirty, honest, reduced bluesy and rocking..whatever. I feel very good about it and in the end that's the main important thing.

(Deutsch) Ich hatte nicht erwartet, dass diese "Fun" Recording Session so gut verläuft.
Es macht richtig Laune, die Ideen fließen und mittlerweile arbeite ich an einem fünften Lied.
Aller größter Voraussicht nach, wird es also dann doch ein eigenständiges Album werden.
Die lieder sind teilweise roh, schmutzig, ehrlich, bluesig, reduziert und oder so. Ich fühl mich gut dabei und darauf kommt es an!
Also geht die Aufnahme Session in die nächste Runde :)

Review for my album "To Bring to Light" by Blues Blast Magazine

I am grateful for the review by Steve Jones in Blues Blast Magazine.
Maybe some people may have different views regarding what is #Bluesand what not, but that's really not important
Thanks for a fine review of my album!
I salute you!

Album Review
Ralli Rock & The Moan of the Sky – To Bring To Light
Artist URL:
Ralli Rock & The Moan of the Sky are an angst filled, big time rock band with a throw back sound. Ralli Rock is gravelly voiced vocalist with pipes filled with anger and emotion and a heavy hand on guitar. It’s mostly solo work as he fills in on drums, piano, bass, organ, and synthetic strings. He gets some help from Mr. Bowman on drums, Se Linder on bass and backing vocals, and R,J. Schrey on keys. Borther in law Ralf Rabenborn is also credited with unspecified assistance.
More of an EP than LP, the seven songs run 36 minutes which is longer than many rock albums of my youth. The venture begins with “Healer,” a rock cut with a moderate beat and howling vocals and guitar. The second cut is “Walk on Water Again,” a cut about despair and hope. Another passionate mid-tempo rocker, Ralli Rock demonstrates his prowess as a guitar slinger once again. “Swallow the Bait” is a huge rocker with some stinging guitar solo and work on top of impassioned vocals. More despair in the rock ballad “2nd Soul” follows. The synthesized sounds add an almost church-like effect to the piece.
Side B begins with “The Blues Within,” which approaches being a blues song but really is a heavy blues rock cut. Slow blues in a way, but the vocals, guitar and piano make it a more of a rock feel. “Black Hole Blues” uses the “B” word again, but it’s a hard rocker styled after 1970’s rock. Larger than life vocals and effects, strident, heavy guitar feel more like Black Sabbath than Muddy Waters. “Let a Little Light Shine In” concludes the set and begins with a simple piano intro. Ralli Rock comes in with a solemn vocal line and organ and gives a glimmer of hope in the lyrics. The song builds and goes into an extended guitar anthem-styled solo to conclude with.
The album is a dark themed, hard rock album. The influence of the blues is buried deeply within; certainly Ralli Rock’s style of singing and play say rock. It’s heavy and dark stuff and if you are looking for that then this is your album. Ralli has distorted effects layers into the vocals witch play into the desperation discussed in the lyrics. The guitar attacks and adds to the deep and dark feeling of the songs. It pretty good in that respect, but once again it’s not blues at all.

New album to come 2018 and additional clever remarks

New album "The Devil's Meal" featuring pre-"Ralli Rock" area tracks (originally recorded around 2012) and songs recorded after the debut "To Bring to Light" (around 2014/2015) to come in 2018!

It's less bluesy than the debut. First I wasn't sure, if I should release it, but the people who have already listened to it already, said:
"That's a damn fine album. Release it. Don't care for "genres" or for the narrow minded guys or the blues-police."

The album will feature one of my personal favorite tracks "Drops of Symphony" (which is to me a blues song, even if it doesn't sound that  much like a blues song, if you know what I mean)

My big love, the dirty honest blues (that comes from the soul), will always play a major role in my life and there are many new blues songs to expect from me in the bloomy future of this strange existence..

I keep you updated.

And always remember: Our blood is always red, despite all the different skin colours.
Keep the good conscience alive and don't let anyone instrumentalize you.

And blues, btw,  is a life experience, a feeling deep inside of you and not necessarily a music genre!
I know, I have mentioned it before ;-)

Stay open minded, my beloved friends
