ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
OZ KNOZZ (pronounced Oz Ka-nozz'), is a Progressive Rock band from Houston, Texas, and has been on the Music Scene for many years, touring and opening shows for the likes of Supertramp, Kansas, Peter Frampton, Point Blank, and Judas Priest, to name just a few. In addition, they have headlined many of their own shows, building an almost fanatical fan-base over the years.
OZ KNOZZ is pleased to announce the release of their new CD, "10,000 Days & Nights". This project is the culmination of over three years of work, recorded and produced by the band, mixed by former Diamond Recording Studios Engineer Gregg Gill, and mastered by Award Winning Master Engineer Jay Frigoletto. The CD contains eight original tracks, full of the signature keyboard sounds OZ KNOZZ is known for, as well as powerful lead guitar, full vocals, and a driving rhythm section.
The eight songs on the CD are all different from each other, from the more "commercial" sounding "You Can't Win", through the progressive "arena rock" sounds of "Graven Image" and "Hear What I'm Saying" to the hard-driving "Hi Fi" and the heavy "Who's The Hero", which is slightly reminiscent of Ronny James Dio. The band even evokes some of Queen's vocal harmonies in the middle section of "S/M Woman", but make no mistake, every song is pure "OZ KNOZZ".
This project started out as a way for OZ KNOZZ to archive some of the music they have written and performed over the years, but as the band spent more time and effort with the project, it seemed to take on a life of its own, and the new CD is the end result.
The title "10,000 Days & Nights" comes from the amount of time that has passed between the first OZ KNOZZ album, "Ruff Mix" and the current release. "Ruff Mix" was released in May of 1975, and incredibly, is still enjoying sales worldwide! Hopefully, "10,000 Days & Nights" will achieve the same level of success!
The members of OZ KNOZZ are;

Milton De Coronado; Lead Vocals and Keyboards

Duane Massey; Keyboards, Lead and Backing Vocals

Robert Guinea; Guitars and Backing Vocals

Bill Massey; Bass

Marty Naul; Drums and Backing Vocals

Just Great
10,000 days and nights is a classic work. The songs are true to the bands early roots but at the same time are contemporary. Great music. You won't be disappointed.

Polished Progressive Rock CD
“10,000 Days & Nights” is the impressive new release from Oz Knozz, a polished progressive rock band from Houston, Texas with a radio-ready sound. Their approach is highly melodic and characterized by heavy synthesizer work, hard driving guitars, solid grooves and wonderful lead and harmony vocals. The commercial “You Can’t Win” is a great example of their captivating hooks, great vocal harmonies and powerful guitar riffs. The production is very professional throughout, producing a refined, marketable sound. “Hear What I'm Saying” and “Graven Image” are further illustrations of their signature keyboard sounds, multi-layered guitars and full, melodic vocals. The aggressive “Hi Fi” features the drums upfront, with a strong bass line and muscular guitar work providing a forceful, heavy groove. Fans of progressive and arena rock from the likes of Kansas, Europe, and Emerson, Lake & Palmer will definitely enjoy this release.

OZZ Knozz
What can I say ! :-) This album are just what all of us lovers of classic 70`s Pomp/ aor have been waiting for years. It`s 2008 and the music sounds like it was released in the 70`s, but away from that the sounds are up to date of what you will expect from a band who have a album out in 2008. ...Just get this awesome cd.

REVIEW
OZ KNOZZ ’10,000 DAYS AND NIGHTS’ (OZ KNOZZ MUSIC/TWO SIDE MOON PROMOTIONS)

OZ KNOZZ is a band with a long past behind them, although this CD is the first recording I am personally aware of. The band is coming out of Texas, USA and they are playing a mix of Classic Rock, AOR and Progressive Rock, sort of like ENCHANT meets Q5 meets WHITE SISTER meets IAN PARRY and although described as Prog, the Pomprock influences are really very present here. Quite a surprise actually as this sounds also like updated mid 1980s uptempo Pomprock. Their CD sounds really impressive, keeping in mind they have performed with acts like KANSAS, JUDAS PRIEST, POINT BLANK many years ago and this new CD is the follow-up to an album they released in 1975! Opener “Telephone” is a pretty good Melodic Progrocktrack a la ENCHANT, but with “Hear what I’m saying” it’s like we have stepped in a timemachine back to the year 1985, a superb uptempo powerful Pomprocker with keys and harmonyvocals straight outta the WHITE SISTER first album book, also TOUR DE FORCE is a good comparison here. Then I am not even talking about the pure late 1970s SPY/TOUCH/ROADMASTER/STYXish midtempo Pomprocker “You can’t win” that has a pumping beat that could have been on a mid/late 1970s STYX album. This song is sounding really TERRIFIC, with amazing harmonyvocals and keyboard/guitarwork and a pure STYX chorus, a MUST-HAVE for all Pomprockfans. Besides the fact the songs are superb, the musicianship is really amazing, with superb vocals of the 2 lead singers MILTON DE CORONADO and DUANE MASSEY, who also both play the keyboards, how AOR/POMPROCK can you get! The fantastic guitarwork is provided by ROBERT GUINEA, while the rhythm section is provided by bassist BILL MASSEY and drummer MARTY NAUL. The song “Graven image” with it’s dut-dut keys and superb lead vocals (not sure who of the 2 sings here, but here the vocals sound from AOR HEAVEN a la ALLIANCE/FRANKE AND THE KNOCKOUTS) is going for a more pure 1983ish uptempo AOR sound like FOREIGNER meets AXE. After these 3 supersensational songs, it’s time to get some breath for a more modest midtempo heavier tune titled “Hi Fi” that is a bit 80s Metal mixed with GREGG GIUFFRIA/ANGELish keyboardwork, so good instrumental work here, but songwise less interesting than the 3 previous Pomprock/AOR masterpieces. Anyway, final 3 tracks are “Midnight Mambo” (a somewhat bluesier midtempo track a la BOBBY KIMBALL fronted TOTO), “Who’s the hero” (showing the band’s diversity as this lovely midtempo epic Progmetal tune is sounding like a mix between DIO, BLUE OSTER CULT (“Godzilla”), URIAH HEEP and SAVATAGE, with heavy riffs and powerful vocals, a superstrong chorus and fantastic guitarwork) and “S/M Woman” (a sorta experimental piece like BLUE OYSTER CULT doing something together with the old QUEEN, ending up sounding like CITY BOY/THE TUBES). I did not expect that OZ KNOZZ was such a impressive band, especially on the the first couple of tunes that sound like something you don’t hear everyday and all together the 8 tracks on this CD are a must to hear and it really is something special if you consider the fact that the band was formed 40 years ago and have until now been undiscovered! Be sure to check out this band asap at: www.ozknozz.com and www.myspace.com/ozknozz and www.sdcd.com
