Sometimes the most unusual combinations produce the best results – in colors, in cooking ingredients, and why not, in musical partners. Evidence of that can be heard on the new collaboration between Anette Olzon (ex-Nightwish, The Dark Element) and Russel Allen (Symphony X, Adrenaline Mob, TransSiberian Orchestra). Entitled “Worlds Apart”, the album showcases their powerful voices both in solo tracks and in duets, and is a fine example of how artists with such diverse backgrounds can work so well together.
The songs on “Worlds Apart” were written by acclaimed Swedish guitarist, songwriter, and producer Magnus Karlsson (Primal Fear, Magnus Karlsson’s Free Fall), and are in the same vein of Russell‘s collaboration with Jorn Lande. If you’re a fan of symphonic metal, with catchy choruses and high-soaring vocals, this is right in your wheelhouse.
Sonic Perspectives collaborator Rodrigo Altaf had the chance to talk to Anette Olzon about the creation of the album, and the two of them also discussed her other endeavors, her challenges with raising a family whilst maintaining two careers, and much more.
