“I just wanted to do something a little more creative than getting up on stage and singing “Hot Cherie”.”

Classic Hard Rock meets European Metal is how vocalist Johnny Gioeli describes this latest project ENEMY EYES. Gioeli harkens back to his pre-HARDLINE roots and adds a theatrical aspect to separate ENEMY EYES from the pack. Joining Gioeli on this new venture is Marcos Rodrigues (RAGE), Fabio Alessandrini (ANNIHILATOR), and Alessandro Del Vecchio (EDGE OF FOREVER).

Their debut album History’s Hand drops on November 18, 2020 through Frontiers Music. The new album also marks Gioeli’s 100th music recording release. I had the chance to speak with Johnny Gioeli ahead of the album’s release.

Highlights include:

-How ENEMY EYES is different than his other projects
-Recruiting Heavy Metal veterans into the band
-Discussion of debut album History's Hand
-Songwriting dynamics
-Stories behind the singles
-His 100th music release
-Touring plans for ENEMY EYES
-Playing double duty with HARDLINE & AXEL RUDI PELL
-Playing overseas vs. USA
-Discussion of CRUSH 40 project
-The next HARDLINE album
-Possibility of a 1992 HARDLINE line-up reunion
-Upcoming music projects
-And much, much more
