After four or five years of discussions about a possible collaboration with Frontiers Records, renowned German producer, guitarist, and songwriter Sascha Paeth agreed to join forces with the Italian label and launch his new band, Masters Of Ceremony.
The resulting and recently released album “Signs of Wings” (you can check our review of the album here) is much more than a solo album. Sascha put together a great group of musicians including Felix Bohnke (Avantasia) on drums, André Neygenfind (Avantasia) on bass, Corvin Bahn on keyboards, and the awesome American singer Adrienne Cowan (Seven Spires). Offering a wide range of styles within the metal spectrum, from aggressive and straight-forward metal songs, to more melodic and symphonic track, this record has a bit of everything and is certainly going to strike fans of Sascha‘s as one of the most inventive, complete, and exciting releases in the metal genre in 2019.
To label Sascha Paeth a multi-talented producer, engineer, musician, and songwriter might not quite cover his full set of skills and achievements. The Wolfsburg-born German multi-musician has produced countless bands including Avantasia, Kamelot, Rhapsody, Epica, Angra, Heaven’s Gate and more. Having worked on, produced, and engineered over 200 albums since 1988, it’s fair to say he has a reputation for being at the forefront of shaping the European melodic power metal sound.
Sonic Perspectives “working man” Rodrigo Altaf had the chance to catch up with Sascha and they spoke about the album, the relevance of a producer in the current state of the music business, their common love for Andre Matos music and legacy and many other interesting topics.
