This album is the love child of GNR, Shinedown, Def Leppard, Breaking Benjamin and Muse on hard rock steroids. With lyrics like, “you look better with the lights out”, you get the gist of what this album is all about.
If you like the hard rock of Led Zeppelin and the blues rock of Bad Company, Whitesnake and Led Zeppelin, you will love this album. Doug Aldrich on guitar is a force to be reckoned with.
The vocalist is Simon Collins, the son of Phil Collins, who also formed the band with David Kerzner. This is great prog without all the technical mastery wrapped around a concept story about a traveller of dimensions and galaxies.
Great EP. I just heard it today. The new album “Mercury” will be released in October 2013. I think I am overdosing on DIY modern rock artists. Think Sevendust, Staind, Digital Summer, Breaking Benjamin and Three Days Grace.
“Misery Loves Company” kicks it off, with a classic metal sound. Very surprised. They are from Sweden and they are into their 5th album release. If you want to relive the Eighties, then the first eight tracks will suffice.
The album cover skeleton head resembles “Eddie” from Iron Maiden. Redline is from Birmingham, England. It’s a good listen and it doesn’t disappoint. Everything is kept simple and the sound is classic heavy rock/metal, however nothing stands out as memorable.
I am finally hearing this album today. Rain is a “supergroup” of European melodic rock/metal bands with Michael Bormann on vocals. It’s hit and miss as it tries to capture the arena rock spirit of 1986.
