New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Having previously worked with a variety of artists (Dr. Alban, E-Type, the Poodles, etc.), singer Martina Edoff is ready to return to where her original musical love - classic hard rock - with the release of her solo debut, 'Unity' on October 16th via Into Records (distributed by Cargo
Records), and will embark on a US tour from September
18th through October 3rd on a bill that will feature headliners Epica, as well as Eluveitie and the Agonist.
'Unity' was recorded at the legendary Bohus Sound Studios in Sweden, whose long list of clients since the start 35 years ago includes both ABBA and Status Quo
(who recorded their hit album and best-selling single "Rockin' All Over The World" in the same studio). Martina's producer and sound engineer, Tobias Lindell, has previously recorded, mixed, and produced bands such as Europe, Mustasch, and Hardcore Superstar
at Bohus Sound.
Martina describes the material on 'Unity' as "uptempo rock," but several ballads help even things out.
Standout tracks (and their creative inspiration) include:
"It´s a wake up call for those who only seek satisfaction in the material world. The true wealthiness begins from the inside of ourselves."
Never Let You Down
"A proposal to someone who has been through bad relationship experiences."

"Today in the western world we spend more time in front of a screen than we spend time in nature or with loved ones. Life passes by quickly without really noticing it. If we don't open our eyes to the real world we might miss what really happens."
"To all the young ones out there who has their lives in front of them. How valuable they are and to tell them how fantastic they are."
I am Mining
"Ones that seek shall find. Its about to find whatever you are searching for and never give up even if it seems impossible."
Love Keeps Turning Away
"The game of love. Even if you fail you got to try it again."
Moment of Truth
"It´s about being in a relationship where the truth came out about lies and betrayals."
This Love is Crazy
"Someone is playing with your emotions and you realize you gotta get out of it."
Argentina-based fans will get an opportunity to catch a performance by not only Martina, but also by Tarja
Turunen as special guest support, at their show in Argentina on the November 14th, at Estadio Malvinas Argentinas:
