One helluva fist in the stomach!! That's how it felt when I first listened to Sea's 'Sorry To Be Sane'. Heavy as a sledgehammer on a solid steel anvil. New vintage rock bands with sound from the glory 70's is popping up now and then and Sea is a mega interesting Danish project. Their sound has shades, which recalls from bands like Baroness, Rival Sons, Alice in Chains and elder bands like Thin Lizzy, Blue Oyster Cult and Kansas.

Strong guitars and a singer in world class is a foundation for high score from me. Anders Brink sings like a mix of Bruce Dickinson, Robert Plant and Mats Levén in Candlemass. 'Cry' is a groovy rock n roll track with sharp guitar sound and heavy drums. It feels like Black Sabbath was an inspiration to this mega heavy song. 'Eyes of Sedona' and 'Another Song to Sing' are two sensational tunes with clear influences from Iron Maiden mixed with some psychedelic 70's rock and it steams of vintage rock packed in a 'deluxe' package. Maybe the strongest tracks together with 'Sorry To Be Sane'.

The tasty 'House of Air' is a heavy up-tempo rock track. 'Aeon' is an epic and breath-taking little song before the stiff 'Ride On' begins. A very catchy and swinging track with Led Zeppelin taste. The closing track 'Battle To Be Seen' is a half progressive rock track with charming guitars and captivating vocals. Just over 30 minutes of classy hard rock and this is a given purchase to all fans of vintage/70's hard rock.

Sea is heavy as lead and the music is performed by very talented musicians. Check out this band!
