Biography

There are several artists with the name Mistral.

1) Mistral is a disco group from the Netherlands.
2) Mistral is a one-man metal band.
3) Mistral is a dance music producer.

1) Mistral were a disco ‘studio group’ formed by Robbie van Leeuwen and Mariska Veres (both members of Dutch rock band Shocking Blue) and Rick van der Linden in 1977. They released three singles: Jaime (1977), Neon City (1978) and are best known for their last single ‘Starship 109’ (1978). The group split in 1980.

2) Mistral is more like art to Henrik Ryösä than a band - a vast range of soundscapes and moods he wishes to explore. A unique songwriting talent, he has penned songs in most genres of modern music since the mid 90’s. His approach to music hails to his roots as an artist in that he is more confident about experimentation. He recognizes music fans can be more fickle, but with Mistral, Henrik believes he never abandons his own style, he just spreads his canvas wider than most.

Mistral began in 2001 as the band Sapientia dissolved after a brief 3 year existence. Henrik made the decision to move forward on his own with the production skills he had gained during his time working with the band. The first song produced for Mistral was not an original but a cover of “Threatened” which appeared on “A Tribute to Living Sacrifice”.

Over the last 5 years Henrik continued to write and record tunes as he refined his vision of what was to become of Mistral. Moving from Canada to Sweden in 2004, he took a short break to regather his thoughts, acquire some new gear, and make new acquaintances.

    The promo is interesting. I could do without the industrial influence though.
