Product Notes

About the style: "The special about the music of Ally the Fiddle: the violin is no additional instrument with a unique sound color, but the center of the compositions and live performance. In the past there have been various bands in the prog rock genre containing the sound of a violin; that had always been interesting and beautiful, but the violin remained a stranger or the pieces, where the violin did appear in a manner, where she could show everything she was containing, had been only a few ones. With Ally and her band it is different. They play a unique music and make an impressive live show. The violin as central instrument of Ally-the-Fiddle is played with the highest skills and combines on one hand the power of rock, the complexity of prog rock, the emotionality of folk and the hardness of metal. In the compositions the violin doesn't disappear as an ornament, but becomes THE instrument in focus, congenially connected with the classical instruments of rock music." About the album: During the past years "Ally the Fiddle" found more and more to their own style, so they see theirselves in the prog rock genre. Starting with the single "The Crumbling Autumn" (2011) this development is now fixed in the new album of the northern Germans. Aditional something new: band leader Ally is now singing, after she started the band as a pure instrumental project and the plan to cover folk tunes with a metal coat. For the new album she wrote only own compositions. Nearly all by herself, but the progressive guitar riffs and the unique style of Robert made these compositions perfect. The album ends in a composition of guitarist Diemo, where he left violin and voice and wrote it only for 2 guitars ans the bass. As guests the band proudly mentions Thomas Zöller ("Asps Von Zaubererbrüdern"), who played arabic woodwinds for the song "Don't wake me up" as well as Le Comte Caspar ("Coppelius"), who created a distorted clarinet in a solo for the song "Lost at the Gates". By the way: arabic and non european sounds play a huge role in the new album. Regarding the sounds: After a couple of years Ally could hold a new handcrafted and five stringed violin in her hands. Built by Ralph Müller, who is crafting guitars and basses in a second profession and used to make a matching instrument for each of a new tour of band ASP. Why now a five stringed violin? Such an instrument receives an additional string in the depth. So it becomes a hybrid between violin and viola. Ally's new violin now has an especially warm and round sound and shows instead of a snail a beautiful seahorse. As in the band's logo. As Ally was wishing the violin "Nautiolin" is covered with a red shellac varnish and is now incomparable with any instrument of this kind. This wonderful instrument is now playing the first time in an album. More about the track list: 1.
