“‘Parasite’ is a song about those who create disasters in this world with their lies, ploys, greed and hatred. Hide their intentions behind a respectable facade ”, says Olzon. “Living in a somewhat chaotic world with a pandemic, crazy politics, violence, social media behavior, and people voicing their opinions about others all the time is the foundation of the idea of the words of L ‘album. Musically, I wanted a much heavier album, but with strong melodies and was inspired by bands that I like like DIMMU BORGIR and IN FIRE. “
Anettethe second solo album of, after that of 2014 “Radiance”, is a harder and faster musical offering than the first. Most important, “Strong” made a claim for Anetteis well deserved as one of the best metal singers in the world.
Music for “Strong” was written and composed with the famous Swedish guitarist and producer Magnus karlsson. Together, Anette and Magnus managed to create an outstanding collection of songs that showcase Anette’s enormous vocal range alongside Karlsson‘s incendiary riffs. The songs are heavy, but still quite melodic and contemporary in their approach to the genre. Besides, “Strong” is mixed by Jacob hansen (PRETTY SERVANTS, VOLBEAT, THE DARK ELEMENT).
