Title: MAX MARTIN - from Hardrock to Bubblegum Pop and back...
Post by: a|wH!L on January 12, 2007, 02:35:54 AM
Max Martin started off in a rock/metal band named ITS ALIVE and released a (demo-)album with the same name under "Mega Rock Records" in 1991 which was limited to 1000 copies only. That makes this release the probably rarest collectors item for Max Martin fans!!
Back then Max used the artist name "Martin White".

The album was first sold in Sweden and later on given away as free sample CDs along with magazines in the UK.

After a tour as a support act of the Swiss band Gotthard Its Alive was signed to Cheiron Records, since Denniz PoP decided he also wanted some 'heavier' music among his label. They released their second album "Earthquake Visions" in 1993 on Cheiron Records and got quite some radio play in the UK. The album is entirely recorded & produced by Its Alive @ Cheiron Studios 1993.

When Denniz PoP decided to do a remix of an Its Alive song he got to know "Martin White" and was blown away by his songwriting capabilities. He invited Martin to join Cheiron. The rest of the story is POP HISTORY...

My favourite It's Alive song is There's Something and I also love Pretend I'm God.
