Meet the vocalists, pt.VII: Nick Holleman

We're highlighting each and every one of the 17 vocalists you'll hear on the new albums, up next is Nick Holleman (Powerized)!

Tom Tee: The sheer number of phenomenal bands, releases and shows Nick has been part of is almost too many to count by now. From blistering Metal albums to television performances and international tours, Nick has pretty much done it all already :) On this particular release, I knew I was going to need a vocalist with a crisp, clear and energetic voice and high vocal range, like you hear on many of the classic European Power Metal releases. Nick immediately sprang to mind, and I was delighted to hear he was totally up for appearing on these records! Also, Nick had a big surprise in store for me... While I mostly had lead vocals in mind, Nick totally floored me by adding in an almost surreal amount of layered backings and choirs throughout the songs, which made his parts sound even more rich and grand than I had even thought possible. And to boot, he's simply one of the nicest people to work with, ever! 
Thanks, high-fives, libations and cheers to Nick and Powerized (check these guys out!!) for making this dream come true, yet again!
