AOR Heaven release 'Rock For Japan'

AORHeavenrockforjapancover
Just over one month ago, 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 ensuing nuclear crisis, linked to the incomprehensible pictures on TV, left all of us extremely sad around the world, but just some of the artists who had been touched by the immense generosity and wonderful friendliness of that country’s people felt beyond anything, that something needed to be done to help.
 
The original idea from the label AOR Heaven simply, was to release a Melodic Rock/ Hard Rock charity album for Japan and to donate all profits from the sales of this CD, to the Red Cross. An e-mail was sent out to just some of the bands mentioned here in order to find out if any of them would be interested in participating in this project, but what came back from the international community was astonishing. Within 24 hours of the message being sent, more than 20 high profile bands and artists from all over the world had offered to take part by contributing previously unreleased material… and the replies just kept coming and coming.
Since many of these bands have got a long history, which is heavily connected to the Japanese country and to it’s wonderful people who have often become loyal friends to many of these musicians, it’s time to release this special album that shows that a simple song can convey so much. Participation means a lot for all of these artists. The songs you hear come deep from their hearts and even though this seems to be just a small thing, it is hoped that all these little pieces – and this also includes the income from this project and the donations as a result of it – will be one part of an over-all puzzle that may just help in the end.
This double CD release will hit the stores in Europe on the 29th of April and is released here on May 9th.
