Blind Ego 22/9/16
We first came across RPWL following a brilliant cover of Steve Hillage's (not Hackett - that's another story) 'Sea Nature'. Anyway RPWL guitarist Kalle Wallner (aka Blind Ego) has taken seven years to complete his third solo effort 'Liquid' - which is today's Vid Of The Day. While 2007’s debut 'Mirror' sounded smooth and almost melancholic, the Freising-native Bavarian utilized the figurative steam hammer on 2009’s 'Numb' and served the audience with a tough as nails monster of Hard Rock heavily influenced by Metal. 'Liquid' now fuses the two earlier approaches without merely being a thrown together sum of its parts. In fact the elements were organically merged – and the result contains nine pieces of music that offer everything: from mighty Hard Rock melodies to brutal Heavy Metal riffing action all the way to emotionally charged passages.
