Additional info
On March 11, 2011 one of the biggest natural disasters hit the country of our close friends in Japan. The earthquake, the tsunami and the nuclear devastation and the resulting inapprehensible pictures on TV left us in sadness and depression and caused a feeling that something needed to be done to help.
The original idea by the label AOR Heaven simply was to release a Melodic Rock/
Hard Rock charity album for Japan and to donate all profit of the sales income of this CD, which you are holding in your hand right now, to the Red Cross in Japan. An e-mail was sent to some bands in order to find out if any of them would be interested in participating in this project. From this point on, the idea started to move and caused massive feedback. Within the first 24 hours after this message had been sent, more than 20 highly profiled bands and artists from all over the world already had offered to take part by contributing previously unreleased material each.
Since many of these bands have got a long history which is heavily connected to the Japanese country and it's loyal friends for these special kinds of musical styles, this participation means a lot for them. The songs you can hear on this record come deeply from their hearts and even though this seems to be just a small thing that can be done, all these little pieces - and this also includes the income of this project and the donations as a result of it - will be one part of an over-all big puzzle that may help in the end.
