DRIVE, SHE SAID is a melodic metal duo that has recorded 6 records. Having started out on CBS in the U.S., made up of Mark Mangold and Al Fritsch, D,SS is known for their stellar vocals, anthemic songs and scathing musicianship
Mangold, a renowned keyboardist, and his creative partner in Drive, She said, the amazing singer/multi-instrumentist Al Fritsch, met in 1988 and started writing and paving the way for their acclaimed first album Drive, She Said on Columbia records. The band toured extensively, playing with such bands as FM, UFO and others, and performing at numerous Festivals.
In 2003 Mark and Al joined with drummer Jonathan Mover to create the album “Real Life”.
According to Mangold “When we started it was important to carve out an original sound, and hopefully also have a “hit. We have always wanted to make our music totally over the top! One of the favorite records we ever did is “Real Life” but the original release never sounded the way we wanted it to. It has the walls of vocals, and musicianship, and hopefully anthemic, and sometimes progressive, songs we enjoyed doing and I am ecstatic that we were now able to remix and release it the way it was meant to be. I am also happy that Al’s legacy is preserved as to listen to this record is to be surrounded by Al Fritch’s voice, playing and energy.”
