The Night Flight Orchestra – a trip back to the 70’s!

DSC00137They have been mentioned as a Supergroup with band members from Soilwork (Björn Strid: vocals, David Andersson: guitar), Arch Enemy (Sharlee D’Angelo: bass), Von Benzo (Richard Larsson: keyboards) and Mean Streak (Jonas Källsbäck: drums). For all of us at the Tivoli this night the moment of seeing them together is strong. Growing up with and learning good music during the 1970’s meant musical discoveries as Deep Purple, Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin. Many in the crowd this evening made references to early days Deep Purple. The Night Flight Orchestra’s only album so far ‘Internal Affairs’ (Coroner Records, 2012) got really good reviews in local press. It was mentioned as a candidate to ‘Best hard rock record of the year’. When the vote was there for 2012 they were nominated in certain press, but didn’t go all the way. All the members in the band give proof of strong musical competence and to hear them play so well together is a pure joy. As a dedicated Soliwork fan it’s in particular gratifying to have Björn Strid singing more traditionally just confirming the great singer he is with a bandwith of infinite capacity. Thanks to The Night Flight Orchestra and thanks to Goran Raber of ABF and Amnezia for making this Festival happen. We can only wish for a repeat next year! This town, this region is so metalsouth!! Let the pictures speak for themselves!
