Magnificent. Simply magnificent.
"Brilliant! I've listened to so many bands who 'claim' to be hard rock and I end up listening to pop crap...
To date, Project-43 has created over fifty original Rock & Roll songs that have an amazing quality that would challenge even the best industry professionals to know that these people have never played in the same room together. Their debut CD, "Silence the Quiet", released in 2007, contains a collection of tunes in the hard/heavy rock genre.
Steve Mann - Guitars, vocals, mix
The Heavy Metal Edges of the Internet...
The band is:
Dee Heikkinen: lead vocals, guitars
Steve Mann: guitars, keyboards, vocals
Mika Lassuri: drums
Craig Erickson: bass guitar
Christopher Bell - lead guitars
Project-43 formed among the stars in late 2005 as musicians met and came together over the Internet. Initially, it was just an effort to refresh their playing skills and learn a little about home recording, but they quickly realized it could be much more. From it's humble beginnings, Project-43 would go on to become one of the first bands to record, mix, produce and release a rock music CD completely over the Internet, with none of the members ever having met in person. All while being separated in three difference countries and five locations around the globe.
Craig Erickson - Bass guitar
Antti Heikkinen - Lead vocals
Their follow-up CD, "Ticket To Infinity", released in January of 2008, also contains a bit of a mix, but is certainly more 'metal' and modern. The combination of these two CDs, plus the third release "Man or Machine", makes it easy to see why their slogan, "Project-43: The Future of Classic Rock", may be more truth than marketing.Type your paragraph here.Type your paragraph here.
The P43 collaboration soon enlisted the vocal talents of Antti Heikkinen from Finland. Antti gave the project a truly special touch that made the music come together like never before. His vocal talents should have landed him a major recording career long ago, thus eliminating any chance he could be part of the team.
But, for whatever reasons, the stars were aligned and he was available for the project. That was a very fortunate set of circumstances for the band and fans alike. Christopher Bell came aboard later to add his New York styling on lead guitar. Most recently, Craig Erickson and Mika Lassuri came aboard to lay down those foundation bass lines and drum beats that support the whole collaboration.

Musicianship to image to art. Flawless!
This CD has songs that are very reminiscent of old-skool Iron Maiden and maybe some Queensryche..
