FEATHERSTONE - Northern Rumble (Showcase)
Swedish melodic rock act FEATHERSTONE was founded by songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/producer Rikard Quist in 2012. After writing for and playing with bands including Gypsy Rose, Don Patrol, Last Autumn´s Dream, White Wolf and Bangalore Choir for several years, he decided to focus his efforts on creating a masterpiece he could call his own.
Collaborating with friend and talented singer Lars Boden (Appearance), and with the addition of heavy drummer Niklas Osterlund (Headplate), Rikard found the melody and power needed and FEATHERSTONE quickly found its feet. More importantly it found its sound and, with the addition of British lyricist Jon Wilde (who Rikard had written with previously), the songs found their words.
The FEATHERSTONE album was written, recorded and produced by Rikard Quist in his own studio ”Eastern Palette Studio” in Gothenburg. Niklas and his thunderous drums were added thanks to the recording talents of Daniel Granstedt at Don Graniolo Sound Studio. The final mix and incredible mastering work was made by renowned and skilled engineer Martin Kronlund at JM Recording Studio.
The debut album ”Northern Rumble” from FEATHERSTONE contains 10 strong and timeless melodic rock songs filled with epic choruses, soaring melodies and ample overdriven power to keep you coming back again and again. It’s a musical journey from the 1970´s, the 1980´s, through the 1990´s right up until today.
