Vocalist David Reece, formerly of German metallers ACCEPT and currently of melodic rockers BANGALORE CHOIR, was interviewed on the latest edition of “Rich Davenport’s Rock Show”. The program can be streamed using the Mixcloud player below. (Note: The Reece interview begins around the 21-minute mark.)
BANGALORE CHOIR released its third album, “Metaphor”, on April 27 via AOR Heaven. The group currently consists of original members David Reece (vocals; ex-ACCEPT), Curtis Mitchell (guitar) and Danny Greenberg (bass), alongside German guitarist/producer Andy Susemihl and drummer Rene Letters.
According to a press release, “Metaphor” features some collaborative efforts as well. David turned to old friends Rikard Quist, who collaborated on the tracks “Silhouettes On The Shade” and “Scandinavian Rose” on the new CD and also worked with lyricist Jon Wilde, with whom David had shared songwriting credits on his Reece-Kronlund release.

BANGALORE CHOIR‘s previous studio album, “Cadence”, was released in September 2010 via Metal Heaven Records.
BANGALORE CHOIR‘s “On Target” LP was released via Giant Records in 1992 — on the same day as NIRVANA‘s “Nevermind”. Shortly after, BANGALORE CHOIR disbanded after being released from the label.
After several years under the radar on a ranch in Montana, Reece (ex-ACCEPT, DAREFORCE) was contacted by Escape Records in 2007 to see what the chances would be for him to go to Sweden to sing on Swedish band GYPSY ROSE‘s next release. Soon after that David found himself in the studio for the next year recording and writing for the new GYPSY ROSE CD, “Another World”, which was released in June 2008.
While touring and doing the Sweden Rock Festival in June 2007 and opening for AEROSMITH in Europe, Reece regained his passion for music, deciding he wanted to put BANGALORE CHOIR back together. Reece reached out to guitarist Curt Mitchell and bassist Danny Greenberg and asked them if they would like to make a new record. Both of them eagerly accepted the challenge.
