New Music Review: CORELEONI “The Greatest Hits Part 1”

Who is CoreLeoni you ask? It is a project founded by none other than GOTTHARD guitarist and founder Leo Leoni to pay a very personal tribute to his ROCK & ROLL past!

 

In Leo’s words: “On the 25th Anniversary of the release of the first GOTTHARD album, I wanted to pay tribute to songs like: DOWNTOWN, FIREDANCE, HIGHER, HERE COMES THE HEAT, IN THE NAME, RIDE ON…, LET IT BE, and ALL I CARE FOR. Songs that with Gotthard we have kind of left aside. We have re-recorded, refreshed, and “re-brushed” them in a respectful way. These songs are very dear to me and they are part of a period that will remain forever with me.”

 

Joining Leo Leoni on CoreLeoni are:

Ronnie Romero (Lords Of Black, Rainbow): vocals
Hena Habegger: drums
Jgor Gianola: guitar
Mila Merker: bass

 

The album will also include a new song, “Walk On Water”.

 

“This “CoreLeoni” project made me feel so many emotions and memories, filling my heart with joy. I hope hearing these new versions gives all the Gotthard fans, especially the ones who knew and loved the band in the early days, the same great emotions that it has brought to me,” concludes Leo.

 

The band will also appear live in Switzerland for the following shows:

 

21.12. Temus, Agno
22.12. Musigburg, Aarburg
23.12. Harley Heaven, Dietikon
30.12. Piazza, Lugano – Radiofestival
