Fair Warning
Style: Hard Rock
Release date: 27 May, 2013
Playing time: 61:14

This rocks! Fat guitars, groovy rock tracks and a vocalist that has the right tone and rasp in the throat. It tastes very much as an American barbeque hard rock.

The German band 'Fair Warning' has made a mega strong album with 'Sundancer'. After more than twenty years in the rock business and six studio albums and three live productions under their belt, their new album 'Sundancer' is a magical and tasteful fourteen tracks disc, created to entertain all the classic hard rock/AOR fans!

Tommy Heart on vocals sounds better than ever and with a strong opening track 'Troubled Love' it's very easy for me to write nice stuff. And when 'Keep it in the Dark' fills my worn ears, my heart starts to hammer in my chest. Superb guitars, splendid vocals, very tasty and well built rock-songs packed in a great production, what more can you desire?

The clean, melodic rock is maybe to simple for many metal fans, but if you like band like Jaded Heart, Bonfire, Gotthard, Harem Scarem or Tesla you will surely like this. The long track list contains both smooth ballads and stiffer up-tempo rock songs and everything is made at a high quality level .I've been listening to 'Sundancer' over and over again and I'm sold. This is good. Really good. One of the best melodic hard rock albums this year (so far).

My thumb is up and this is an album to play loud as hell this summer! A given purchase.
