New Year’s Music Resolutions for 2014: Chapter 7

Well hello again dear readers and welcome to our “lucky seven” chapter of the New Year’s Music Resolutions; I’m glad that you are still with us and I should let you know that we appear to be at the penultimate chapter of this years feature. Now before I get too wordy let’s get this party started.

1. Mark Jansen (Epica/Mayan): My New Years Music Resolution for 2014 is releasing at least two albums, one with MaYaN and one with Epica and perhaps one for Laura Marci’s solo project. I hope that we can play many live shows with Epica and if there’s some time left I’d love to do some with MaYaN as well Besides that I hope that there will be many other good releases from other bands coming out in 2014!!!

2. Syka: Is to write the most emotional hardcore music of my career and branch out touring to different parts of the US!

Music Luminaries Share Their New Year’s Metal Resolutions for 2012: Part 4

So as we hit the three days left in 2011 mark let me ask you something. Did anyone else think that the year flew by us at a record pace? I know it did for me and perhaps this instant society we are living in with the Internet being such a core of our daily happenings and Facebook/Twitter addictions being par for the course are the reasons. Whatever the case may be here we are once more in our presentation of the “New Year’s Metal Resolutions for 2012” from some of the finest musical people that I have had the opportunity to interact with. Please enjoy our fantastic fourth chapter.

Johnny Kelly (drummer for Type O Negative, Seventh Void, A Pale Horse Named Death): Not sure if I have a resolution or not. My first one isn’t music related and that’s to stop smoking! My musical one though is to keep working hard to be able to do something that I still love doing. I want to see great things happen for APHND and I want the new Seventh Void record to come out in 2012!

Steve Blaze (lead guitarist for Lillian Axe): …to become a better, more patient human being. This will enable me to become more well rounded and pure iin all aspects of what I feel are the important elements of a truly great musician. Talent is one aspect but the soul and spirit are what drive it to its limits.

Margarita Monet (lead vocals for Edge Of Paradise): My New Year’s Metal Resolution is, besides writing the best song ever made, to further solidify and spread the heavy sound of my band. It’s not very common these days that bands have their own sound distinguishing them from thousands of other bands, like Black Sabbath or Iron Maiden have, when you hear their songs, you instantly know that it’s Sabbath! So this is the New Year’s resolution, to strive to create epic music with a sound that’s unique to ourselves and of course to tour the world and make everyone hear it 🙂
