BRUCE SOORD with JONAS RENKSE - Radio Star (Live) (audio)

#wisdomofcrowds #brucesoord #jonasrenkse #rockfile
The leaders of two of my favorite bands, Bruce Soord (The Pineapple Thief) and Jonas Renkse (Katatonia), released an album together earlier this year and it is definitely in my personal Top 10 for the year. Now, they have released this audio from their debut live gig July 2013, as they get ready for a European tour in December.

Eclipsed 8/10

"...Soord demonstrates that he has become a serious songwriter"
Metal Hammer 6/7

"Soord created with nearly every song a small cosmos which is complemented by Renske congenial... an album that can`t be missed"

"...a fusion of the best qualities of the both frontmen... the melancholy of Katatonia... the airiness of Pineapple Thief... catchy from the first listen"
Sonic Seducer

"For sure a candidate for album of 2013."

"the resulting music is hypnotically sublime"
"...both a stimulating and mesmerizing listening experience."
8.5/10 www.metal-discovery.com

"It's the kind of music that would make a fine soundtrack to a long drive through the unending darkness of night."

"The stylistic adventure succeeded completely" "keeps up with Renske`s main band when it comes to the songwriting."
Rock Hard 8/10 (DEU)

Album of the Month
"a suprisingly versatile record, which will reveal its subtlety over time: a spendid album which requires a follow-up".
Rock Hard (FRA)

"Bruce Soord and Jonas Renkse star in one of the jewels of 2013"
9/10 noizzwebzine

Originally written with Renkse's voice in mind, Soord sought out the acclaimed Katatonia vocalist to complete the compositions and release the music to the masses. Despite the rigorous schedules of The Pineapple Thief and Katatonia, the two musicians were eventually able to connect.

Both artists are currently enjoying unparalleled success with their main bands.

The Pineapple Thief have just completed a successful European tour following the release of their latest album, All The Wars in September. Rocksound described All The Wars as "an album of Muse-like, slow burning guitar anthems", while Classic Rock stated it was "the sound of a band reaching the height of their powers" and Prog argued it was an "elegant, sophisticated work... moody and meaningful, introspective and universal."

Katatonia also released a new album last year. Dead End Kings was released on the Peaceville label in August and reinforced their position as "one of the most consistently fascinating bands in modern heavy music." (Metal Hammer, 9/10). The album featured heavily in the album of the year polls of magazines around the world and was also nominated for a Grammy in the band's homeland of Sweden.
