Call of the Wild
Style: Hard Rock
Release date: April 27th 2007

Decoy is a collaboration between the Danish songwriter and guitarist Torben Enevoldsen (Section A, Fatal Force) and Swedish singer Peter Sundell (Ex-Grand Illusion). Decoy is completed by drummer Thomas Heintzelmann and their debut album I’m sitting here with is called “Call of the Wild”… a quite good Hard Rock album. 

Musically we get everything from Melodic Rock to Hard Rock and even traditionally Heavy Metal and this really shows the variability of Decoy. So, there’s something for almost every fan of Rock and Metal to be found on “Call of the Wild”. 

Well, the first time I threw it in my hard-tried CD-player I wasn’t exactly thrilled but after 3-4 listens the music slowly but surely began to grow on me. The guitar riffs sounds simple and are very memorable and Peter Sundell’s voice are a little rougher than what I’m use to from Grand Illusion. The guitar solos from Torben Enevoldsen are great… he is not overdoing it. You know, some guitarist tend to get a bit monotonous when it’s nothing but nine minutes of guitar shredding… but it’s not the case here, the solos are short but very memorable and never boring or to self indulgent. 

My favourite tracks are the harder tracks; “Heavy Metal Thunder” (not a cover of Saxon), “Make a Stand” and “My Religion”, however the more melodic side of Decoy is great too, the whole album just need some time to grow. 

“Call of the Wild" comes with 11 tracks and a fine production so do check it out when it hit the stores in April.
