MODEST MIDGET Putting Final Touches On The New Album Called “Crysis”

Modest Midget

Imagine trying to create a salad based on pickles, olives, chocolate, honey, hummus, jam and feta cheese. This is exactly what Lonny and his gang are doing with their music. Different styles and genres that have little in common meet each other under one roof, offering a repertoire of pure fun alongside profound seriousness.

This band is on a mission; to freshen up the music industry, and to bring their audiences both friendly & attractive tunes as well as complex compositions and arrangements. A shake that this milk has needed for years.

After having released The Great Prophecy of a Small Man – the debut album that Lonny produced and published in 2010 and three European tours the band is now completing the ir2nd album; Crysis. They are now offering you a taste from it. Rocky Valleys of Dawn, the song with the strongest ‘straight Rock’ flavor which is now out and available through iTunes and Amazon.

The first album has received unanimously fantastic reviews from dozens of music magazines around the world, including among others Music Maker and Oor Magazine – the most prominent music magazine in The Netherlands. Several publications nominated it as one of their top 10 albums of the year, some went as far as calling it the best debut of 2010.

Crysis is the name of the new album the band is now working on. An album which dares to be yet more excentric and extreme in its diversity, created under the pains of personal life-happenings as well as movements inside the band,  in a world that in its own is now facing great historical challenges.

The album is about the nature of the life span, the end and the start of a new chapter, the pains and the great joys that take place, and the hope for a new and better future in the life of an individual, and of mankind in general. Lonny Ziblat is still the main composer with three tracks written by other composers, among them bass player Maarten Bakker.

Ziblat has composed and arranged music for different orchestra’s, ensembles and productions, working with among others Holland Symfonia (the Dutch opera & ballet orchestra), and artists like Wouter Hamel. He orchestrated music for the Oscar nominated feature film Footnote (2012). He still works with different artists and composes music for film and TV.
