Axel Rudi Pell in his own words:
Another 7 years passed by after the release of the ''The Ballads III''. Seven years of writing, recording and collecting even
more emotional and melancholic songs.
To keep our tradition, we decided to record 3 brand new tracks for this ballad compilation. Here is a short introduction to
every new song in the specific running order:
1) WHERE THE WILD WATERS FLOW - My own composition in the true ARP ballad style.
2) HOLY DIVER - As everybody knows, my soul mate and friend Ronnie James Dio sadly passed away last year. It was
very clear to me using one of his songs to pay him tribute. Of course the original track isn't a ballad, so I decided to
re-arrange the song completely and we made a Piano version out of it, featuring some Orchestra - strings, a Cello and
a clean and melodic guitar solo
3) HALLELUJAH - One of the best ballads
around. Originally written and released by
Leonard Cohen in 1984, it wasn't his version
giving me the idea to cover this tune. Actually
it was all the good and bad performances
of some TV casting show participants, who
gave me the real kick to create one of the,
hopefully, ultimate versions of this song.
