Firewind/Uli John Roth/Metalium-drummer Michael Ehré started this power-project back in 2009. The bands debut came the same year and it's called 'Brace for Impact'. On '2 Big 2 Fail' Michael has gathered his forces again and created a top-class piece of work. Amazing vocals from the Italian powerhouse Jan Manenti and with big fat guitars and groovy melodies this album is full of tasty tracks right in the mouth to fan's of bands like Masterplan, Firewind, Whitesnake and Rainbow.

The first half in '2 Big 2 Fail' very awesome, cheeky and have many energetic tracks. Good tempo and brilliant choruses brings out my air-guitar and especially in 'XTC', one of the introductory songs on the album, which is a must track on the rock party's. 'Burn the Night' is a classical German power metal song with a strong voice and fast drums. In 'The One', 'Restless Heart' and 'Home' the tempo is slower and that fit's Jan's voice really, really well and it's a nice interruption in contrast to the faster songs. The heavy 'The Great Escape' is a uneven song with lighter parts and strong and powerful choruses, (and a nice guitar solo in this song). 'We Fall' doesn't sound as if it's the same band, so the skip button is pressed. Love.Might.Kill's album have a strong emphasis on strong guitars and great vocals with well stacked melodies and is a nicely packaged delivery of well-produced hard rock.

The two closing tracks are also strong melodic metal tracks that is in a level above middle score. The other half is not at the same high level and intensity as the first songs and my overall score of the album do they reach a rating in the 80s.

Love.Might.Kill is a very nice acquaintance.
