Passionately hard rock 80's!
   Thanks to Andy REISERT (see review ANDY REISERT Natural Disaster) I found this Japanese guitarist. Andy participated in the making and provides vocals on four songs (which he also made the English translation).

If you like the Hard Rock 80’s played without pretension but with feeling very talented and I recommend this CD. You will find the atmosphere close to MSG, OZZY, MALMSTEEN or Gary MOORE...
to Andy singing is a compromise between Gary MOORE and OZZY. Of course some people will find a little "retro" style and manner of play, the production is a bit tight. But we are dealing here with musicians of more than forty years that seek to be happy and share the fruits of their passion with those who want it. The musical quality is impeccable and catchy compositions, they allow themselves to listen from beginning to end, quietly and calmly, without giving the impression of having to make a "guitar hero " who wants us to (unnecessarily) eyeful and ears. KOUICHI OGAWA and Andy REISERT are a sort of quiet strength that brings us back in the middle of 80’s for the pleasure (for those who wish to return back).

For information re 2009 edition of this CD release and a new album! Please visit the website KOUICHI Ogawa!

Pour information une ré édition 2008 remastérisée de ce CD est effectivement sorti. Mais l'eau a coulée sous les ponts; depuis Kouichi Ogawa s'est entouré de nouveaux acolytes et semble avoir conquis Osaka et également une grande partie des métaleux du Japon, voir quelques fans des states. Un album est sorti en 2009 sous le titre de "Kingdom Saga", titre qui est désormais le nom officiel du groupe. Un album bien acéré et plaisant d'ecoute. On reconnait là, le touché du maestro Kouichi et des vocaux surprenants qui ne laisseront pas insensibles les heavy métaleux. Le groupe vient également de sortir un album en 2010 de karaoké doté de 2 titres (chanté et musical), car n'oublions pas que là bas, au pays du soleil levant, les fans de karaoké semblent toujours très demandeurs et insatiables. A noté que les couvertures de ces albums sont crées par un français, ce qui n'est jamais négligeable de souligner. A suivre.....
Comment by Raskal : Thank you KRAKAL for these precise details! Figures you whom I have just received l' album of KINGDOM SAGA on behalf of Kouichi ! With the first listening c' is indeed a tone with the top and I will put soon on line the chronicle.
