Sorry, but this was the first time I listened to music of this band. That is
strange if I tell you that they have already existed for 20 years and have 2 self
released albums on their palmares. The band has only three members, guitarist
Dennis Brown also is responable for the singing and does a good job. He has a
warm and powerful voice, which takes the music to a higher level.
musical style is a combination of symphonic (NWOBHM) metal, AOR and melodic hardrock.
If I didn't know that the band hails from the USA, I would have guessed that
they were UK based. The foundation of the music is rather Iron Maiden like, with dominating bass lines and guitar melodies and some galopping rhytmns. On
top of that they have a rather old school sound reminding of the eighties, which
doesn't mean that the production is bad, no it just sounds a bit old school. All
in all they don't sound very modern and for some that is a blessing, for others
it is too ancient sounding I guess. Besides that they also use a lot of
keyboards reminding a bit of the seventies. Perhaps that is also why they
covered Deep Purple's "Stormbringer" and as always the original...... (you can
fill it in yourself). I think this album will be liked by a lot of melodic old
school heavy metal fans who like adult oriented rock as well.
me it all sounds a little too ancient, but that doesn't change the fact
that this is a nice piece of music.
