The stunning coverart was created by Elisa Kääriäinen.
Tornado stated on “Livin’ It Up”:
“Livin’ It Up” sounds something like Guns’n Roses meets Faith No More (quote from a fan). Borrowing from the ‘80s Stadium Rock era “Livin’ It Up” takes you on a rollercoaster ride into the satin nights. Hold nothing back, seize the moment and LIVE IT UP BABE!”
Just recently Keith Clement from Metalheads Forever conducted an in-depth interview with GENTLE SAVAGE’s Tornado Bearstone and Theo Van Boom, talking widely about the band’s debut album “Midnight Waylay”. In case you missed it, watch the interview here: https://youtu.be/Dz3B57GrbTQ
Tornado on “Midnight Waylay” album: “Midnight Waylay depicts a ‘taking it easy in the daytime, turning into a beast at night’ kind of lifestyle. Just like a hunter strikes from the shadows, ruthless and silent, these songs can without warning rock your world. As a concept the album Midnight Waylay is best appreciated when served whole, but each song has its own character and works well independently. Find your own adventure, let yourself loose!”
Kimmo Kuusniemi, Godfather of Finnish heavy metal, on Gentle Savage’s debut album “Midnight Waylay”: “Listening to Gentle Savage reminds me of Deep Purple! That’s not bad at all!”

Tornado stated on the album coverart:
“TWO SIDES TO EVERY STORY
Isn’t it strange that when you get something really big done you are at the same time relieved and a bit confused?! That’s how it feels like right now.
Our debut album is ready for release, coming out on June 17th via our Bandcamp page, and now we are proud to reveal the MIDNIGHT WAYLAY album cover to the world.
The cover art was created by our friend, graphic art wizard Vin Valentino. Vin and vocalist Tornado created the Midnight Waylay world based on Tornado’s visions of a Rock Band descending down to earth using a ‘stairway to heaven’. That’s Tornado’s way of showing his gratitude to the old great ones who showed the Rock’n Roll way for latter generations to roll. “
