Intermission is a compilation album by power metal band Stratovarius, released on 26 June 2001 through Nuclear Blast. The album consists of covers, live and bonus tracks, as well as four new tracks. It charted in the top 100 in four countries.
AMAROK's style is quite different from the current Spanish Progressive rock movement, thanks to their tone. Led by multi-instrumentalist Robert SANTAMARIA, this mainly acoustic band uses a variety of instruments, like the guitar, oboe, violin, piano, didgeridoo, tabla, saxophone, organ, drums and percussions. Mireia SISQUELLA's clear voice creates soundscapes recognizable for their simplicity and quietness, making her the counterpart of Portuguese singer Teresa SALGUEIRO (MADREDEUS). Some keyboards rhythm sequences are the basis for the superb melodies pictured by the vocals, in a peaceful atmosphere between ENYA's acoustic new-age, L'ENSEMBLE RAYE's minimalist chamber rock and IN THE LABYRINTH's ethnic musics (Apart from the Indian references).
Deluxe two CD Edition of her ace 2007 album features a bonus disc that includes remixes and non album tracks. The album was written and conceptualized during 33 months of touring and was recorded in just two weeks in a 200 year old manor house on the outskirts of Paris with players including Gonzales, Jamie Lidell, Mocky and Erik Glambek Boe (Kings Of Convenience), and includes 'My Moon My Man', with it's sucker-punch melody tumbling over hard-soul piano chords and live favorite 'Sea Lion Woman'.
