Description

In the summer of 2015 guitarist Dennis Heltorp and drummer Henrik Zetterlund formed the rock band The Senior Management. Together they have been involved in different music project since the late 80’s. During the first half of the 90’s they collaborated in the band Y.M.I where they reached the finals in the Swedish championship of rock music. In the mid 90’s Y.M.I played at a rock festival and was warm up act for Billionaires Boys Club who was headlining. Billionaires Boy Club was Jörg Fischer (Accept), Anders Johansson (Yngwie Malmsteen) Göran Edman (Yngwie Malmsten, John Norum) and Magnus Rosén (Hammerfall). Magnus was at the time in the beginning of his career and that later would bring him to several successful years with Hammerfall. Göran had recently left Yngwie Malmsteen band when he replaced Marc Boals in Billionaires Boys Club. During this rock festival, it was the first time we all met and none of us had any idea that we 20 years later would team up together as The Senior Management. Dennis Heltorp: “In order to find our sound, we did some demos with different voices like Tony Martin from Black Sabbath and Jeff Scott Soto (Talisman, Soto, Sons Of Apollo). However, all pieces fell into place after the first demo run with Göran. He finally added with his voice and amazing vocal harmonies the missing piece to complete our sound.” Some listeners say that The Senior Management sound like a blend of The Eagles and Thin Lizzy. Others have said they sound like Journey or Bon Jovi. Dennis continues: “What we wanted to achieve with this album was to create something new. A new sound where we blend classic hard rock with country rock and still be in the area of album-oriented rock. We followed a rule that, when we don’t have any idea of what to change to improve the song. Then we know it’s finished. We wanted every song to have the quality to be a single, so if we didn’t think the song was good enough then we threw it in the bin. In order to get the best possible sound quality, we worked with the best engineer. When we started the recording process we contracted Mats” Limpan” Lindfors which was the obvious choice to combine hard rock and country. Very unfortunately, Limpan passed away and all his work went with him. R.I.P Mats Lindfors. We had to start over again and had the luck to finish the work with Ronny Lahti. Interesting is that one of the first jobs Ronny did as a young professional was with ABBA and Voulez Vous.
