TANIA KIKIDI - "Rock & Roll Paradise" (Teaser Promo Video)

 

 

· reviews ·

What Alessandro Del Vecchio is to Frontiers Records Stavros Papadopoulos is for USA-label Grooveyard Records. Stavros has some four band/projects on the go for the label (amongst them Super Vintage and King Mountain). He also produces solo-material and produces and writes for other artists that are connected to Grooveyard.

The Greek maestro and multi-instrumentalist’s latest project involves female Greek singer Tania Kikidi. Stavros provided the songs, the sound and production. But not only that. He also delivered a shitload of guitar riffs and solos to make Tania’s record ‘Rock & Roll Paradise’ a real joy to hear. As Tania as a singer brings it across as well with a very decent range, enough melody and some serious power in her pipes. She is not only a stunning woman to see but first and foremost a singer that can sing different genres as well. Just listen to how she handles the ballad "The Last Goodbye."

Luckily on `Rock & Roll Paradise’ Tania sings pure hard and heavy rock and does that with conviction. On several songs, like "Walkin’ On Badlands," she reminds me of a certain Sass Jordan. But in general on this record her style is a lot heavier orientated.

Thanks to the crunchy and overwhelming classic guitar sound by Stavros and a couple of other Greek guitar slingers invited to lent their talents to this album, ‘Rock & Roll Paradise’ matches up with its title.

If you like stuff in the style of Saraya, Chrissy Steele, Sass Jordan etcetera, have a listen to this record that has straight forward hard rocking songs with tonnes of guitar masturbation. Pretty sure Tania will reel you in with her voice and her hard rocking attitude. Yes people, they do know how to rock in Greece!

Tania Kikidi from New Artaki, Greece, released her debut album "Disi Anatoli" together with Dickens Zoo in 2007 and it was followed by: "Piso Olotahos" (2012). "Run Through The Night" (2012) and the EP "Silent Partners Project" (2021) and on July 31, 2021 the album "Rock & Roll Paradise", which contains 12 songs and was released as a CD through Grooveyard Records. The band consists of: Tania Kikidi - vocals and backing vocals, Stavros Papadopoulos - lead guitar, bass guitar, piano and keyboards and Chris Lagios - drums and is assisted on this album by: Antonis Panagopoulos - lead guitar (track 1, 4, 5, 6 3 and 10), Antonis Vogiatzoglou - lead guitar (track 2, 3 and 8) and Joan Kolia - backing vocals (track 3).

The album starts with the title track "Rock & Roll Paradise", in which Tania Kikidi plays an excellent uptempo hard rock song, which has a catchy swinging rhythm that makes you dance (listen to this song via the youtube link below the review) and followed is led by "Queen Rider", a great swinging uptempo rock song, which has subtle tempo changes and contains a danceable rhythm, and "Freedom Highway", a solid swinging uptempo song with a catchy rhythm. This is followed by "Night Burner", also an uptempo rock song, which swings and has subtle tempo changes, "Daughter Of The Wind", a wonderful swinging rock song, again a great uptempo rock song and "Walkin' On Badlands", in which the band plays another nice to listen to hard rock song. In "In The Eye Of The Storm" Tania Kikidi lets me enjoy a fast rock song with a catchy rhythm, in "Feel My Soul Rockin'" I hear a song in a medium tempo, which has a danceable rhythm and in "You Keep Me True" the band again presents me with a swinging rock song, which has a fairly high tempo. Next up are "Save Me", a medium tempo song with subtle tempo changes and a catchy rhythm, "Escape", a delightful swinging uptempo song with a danceable rhythm and "The Last Goodbye", a beautiful song with a slow tempo. , which encourages shuffling and a worthy closing of this album.

"Rock & Roll Paradise" by Tania Kikidi is full of excellent uptempo hard rock songs, which are inspired by 80s hard rock and will certainly appeal to fans, but the highlight of this album for me is undoubtedly the ballad "The Last Goodbye ".
