German melodic rockers disbanded in the year 2000 after they had released 4 studio albums but they reformed at the end of 2005, and they about to release a brand new album called, “Brother’s Keeper”.

While we wait for their new album Frontiers Records has just re-released their first two studio albums, “Fair warning” and Rainmaker”, plus a concert DVD filmed back in 1993 in Japan .

Their debut album was a pleasant surprise in my opinion containing first class melodic Hard Rock but sadly Fair warning can’t keep the high level on album number two “Rainmaker”.

The first problem I have with this album is that I find the music a bit softer than on their debut album. The next problem is; - Where are the memorable songs? A few of them are great, especially “Burning Heart”, but most of them are not above average in my book. OK, so the songs are well written and played, but they hardly grip you and there also are no innovations whatsoever.

The production is very good and I think you should at least give it a listen if you are into Melodic Rock music.
