This weekend there was great activity in the Grand Design camp! Rehearsals and photo session with the band featuring our new bass player Stefan Westerlund and drummer Joakim Jonsson. The new line-up ROCKS!! Finished mixing two more songs (only two songs left!). The album is almost ready!

Saturday’s official opener was GRAND DESIGN. I know I’ve questioned the band’s shameless Def Leppardisms, but I can’t deny that their songs are good and they work well live. Vocalist Pelle Seether is an old-school frontman with a classic mikestand ”choreography” and his unique high-pitched voice really does sound similar to what you can hear on GD albums.
The band’s multilayered harmonies were somewhat enhanced by backing tapes, but that’s quite understandable. They should have had a dozen singers on stage to totally replicate them! The whole band did sing their hearts out though.
I consider Grand Design as one of the winners of RWAOR – since the gig I’ve listened to their music more than ever before.
