After their successful second album “Due” (Dynamit! on Rock Hard, 12/15 on Legacy magazine, Hot album on Metalitalia.com in Feb. ‘21) Blue Hour Ghosts return with a powerful and classy cover of the dark and experimental Queen masterpiece “I’m Going Slightly Mad”. The track is once again produced by Giuseppe “Dualized” Bassi (Fear Factory), and features a guest appearance of the talented multi-instrumentalist Jørgen Munkeby of Shining (Nor) on saxophone. The cover song is meant to honor the great Freddie Mercury on the 30th anniversary of his passing.
The band comments: “Despite our influences draw from a very wide spectre of metal, rock and pop subgenres, Queen have always been a major influence for all of us, and fully embody the spirit with which we make music: no boundaries, no clichés, total freedom, eclectic and elegant, while keeping themselves extremely effective, enoyable and accessible. We wanted to honor the 30th anniversary of Freddie’s passing with something special, so we dared to give our take on one of the darkest, most sophisticated and enigmatic songs of Queen’s discography. We were joined in this endeavor by none less than the great Jørgen Munkeby of Shining (Nor), who graced the song with a stellar performance on saxophone. And, more than ever before, this time our producer Giuseppe Bassi acted as our seventh Ghost, and helped us giving the track its unique, twisted and modern feel. We hope that all of our fans, and all Queen fans all over the world will enjoy our tribute to the One and Only.”
