“Twelve” is the debut album from female fronted band Last Union which features Symphony X bass player Mike LePond. The album also features guest vocals from Dream Theatre’s James LaBrie on three tracks and it was released on 21st December via Rock of Angels Records (ROAR!). The single “President Evil” was included on the Friday NI Rocks Show on 21st December.


 

Last Union was initially founded in 2007 by vocalist Elisa Scarpeccio, guitarist Cristiano Tiberi and keyboard player Claudio Feliziani and they were originally called Blazing Ice. Over time the latter departed and Scarpeccio and Tiberi worked with a number of session players until they were joined by former Helloween and Masterplan drummer Uli Kusch and eventually by Mike LePond from Symphony X on bass.


James LaBrie from Dream Theatre was invited to sing on the tracks “President Evil”, “A Place In Heaven” and “Taken”. The latter also features a guest appearance from Masterplan keyboard player Axel Mackenrott. There are 11 different tracks on the album, with Scarpeccio providing the lead on the eight tracks not featuring LaBrie.

About “NI Rocks Recommends”

The simple idea behind “NI Rocks Recommends” is to acknowledge and promote some of the great music being submitted to Rock Radio NI. The albums that I’ll be recommending are those that you’ll hear me playing tracks from on my shows. I'll not be giving marks or ratings or analyzing the tracks in great detail; just telling you something about the artist and the album. It’s a personal recommendation to go check something out, not a traditional “review”!
