Taboo Voodoo - Something's cookin' 2002

Format: flac + cue + log
Genre: Progressive/Fusion
Original Release Date: 2002
Label: Lion Music Finland

One of the characteristics of progressive rock is that many musicians are involved in more than one band and also in several projects, to find an outlet for their growing creativity. This is also the case for drummer Mike Terrana (Rage), who has played with people like Yngwie Malmsteen, Rage, Axel Rudi Pell and Tony MacAlpine, but wanted to play something else than the simple "balls to the walls metal" as he has been doing for some time now. Interesting is that this amazing drummer is inspired by big band and jazz music and at home he listens a lot to Frank Sinatra and Buddy Rich. As Mike himself says: "I think it's cool to make heavy metal music swing and groove." So although being a full time drummer in Rage, he found time to team up with the French guitarist Cyril Achard and they formed Taboo Voodoo.....
