Classic hard rock act Wonderworld, featuring Labyrinth vocalist Roberto Tiranti, signed on with Sliptrick Records for the release of the new album "Wonderworld III," expected later this year. More information on the album is expected soon.
In March 2013 (during the recording of a Ken Hensley & Live Fire album in Alicante), Norwegians Ken Ingwersen (guitar) and Tom Fossheim (drums) met Roberto Tiranti (vocals and bass) for the first time. Within a few hours, the guys hit it off both musically and personally. The possibilities for the power of the new band band was massive and the process moving forward was very easy and fun. Within a year, the band had recorded the first album, simply called "Wonderworld," which was released in October 2014.
This was followed up in 2016 with "Wonderworld II," which was put together throughout 2015, in-between gigs, despite the fact that the singer/bass player was based in Genova, Italy and the drummer and guitar player were in Norway. 2017 saw the band in the studio again, this time to record the third album, the upcoming "Wonderworld III."
Wonderworld is influenced by many of the bands from the 70’s era, which include a lot of jamming, energy and fun. As musicians, the guys have all been a part of the recording processes where you record one person at a time, doubling all parts, huge background vocals, keys, sound replacing drums, auto-tuning the vocals etc, etc. So for Wonderworld, it was important to stay away from that path and get back to the roots on how classic rock bands recorded music. But even though there is a bit of Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, AC/DC and Rush in the mix, the band has it's own sound musically and have created a solid combination of old and new influences sprinkled with their own spices to forge a melting pot of rock music.
