must admit that I wasn’t familiar with the music of Fair Warning before I received this album; I only knew them by name.
Fair Warning was formed out
of Zeno & V2 and debuted with their self titled album in 1991 and it
sold very well in
but not as well in Europe. To make a long story short, this Melodic Hard
Rock band from
released 3 more studio albums before disbanding in the year 2000.
band reunion took place at the end of 2005 and the resulting album
entitled “Brother’s Keeper” is finally scheduled for release on
Frontiers Records on August 25th 2006. And while we wait for
the brand new album their two first studio albums has been re-released
on Frontiers Records. But that’s not all. A concert held in Club Citta
in Kawasaki, Japan
back in 1993 can be enjoyed in a DVD which lands on the European markets
for the first time ever…also on Frontiers Records.
is their debut album and a pleasant surprise. Melodic Hard Rock with
catchy hooks and catchy choruses packed in a good production. We get the
whole spectrum that we normally would expect from this genre, from
ballads to Melodic Rock songs and more hard rocking tracks.
music is very 80's and 90’s sounding, but I don’t find it dated.
Fans of Foreigner, Whitesnake, Survivor, Def Leppard and Nightranger
should give this album a listen.
Maybe the majority of Heavy Metal-fans won't exactly
dig this album, but if you are into the more melodic side of Rock and
hard Rock, this album could be just right for you. Do your self a favour
and check this album out when it hit the stores?
