MERIDIAN – The 4th Dimension (2022)

MERIDIAN - The 4th Dimension (2022) - full

Let’s go back to the 80s. Back then, there was no style boundaries. You were either into heavy metal / hard rock or you were not. Bands like Scorpions, Pretty Maids, W.A.S.P. or TNT gathered a legion of loyal fans around them looking for the thrill of screaming guitars and epic melodies. More than fans, we were family. The heavy rock family.
Many bands have, since then, tried to capture the feeling of those days. Many have failed miserably, but others have succeeded to give us a glimpse of that golden era. Among the latter, Danish collective MERIDIAN is one of the most brilliant.
Their upcoming new album “The 4th Dimension” from the Danish five-piece comes, musically, with a wide variety of songs, from real heavy numbers (“The Road Back To Hell”, “Warning Shots”) to really melodic rock / AOR (from which “Say That You Want Me” is a perfect example).

Not forgetting epic songs (“Dreamers”) and fast tracks like “Remove Your Crown”, “The 4th Dimension” showcases the Danes versatility. As in the 80s, no boundaries, no overthinking.
“The attitude was ‘Everything is possible and anything goes’”, guitarist Marco Angioni comments about the writing process. “If a song is good and we all like it, it goes on the album”.
Again, an attitude that screams “Eighties” from the top of its lungs.

Produced, mixed and mastered by Angioni (a renown producer himself, with bands such as Tygers Of Pan Tang, Steel Inferno and Iron Fire in his resume) and recorded at his own studio between October 2021 and January 2022, “The 4th Dimension” is one of those album impossible to dislike.
