Unique album that combines the different artistic characters of the band members in a very harmonic way. Melodic, powerful metal with a beautiful female voice will be lifted into a new dimension with this album of Beautiful Sin. "The Unexpected" is an excellent surprise! Highly recommended! Nowadays this band is history.
2006 solo album by this hard rock vocalist who fronted Badlands, Artension and, most recently, Royal Hunt. Features musical assistance from Chris Caffery and Jeff Plate from Savatage.
7 is the 7th and last studio album by hard rock band Talisman released on 20 October 2006 on Frontiers Records. It was recorded under the working title of "BAR", which stood for "Bitter-Angry-Resentful", basically a joke referring to the guys’ outlook on certain life events. It was dropped in the end in favour of the more immediate "7". "7" is an album that encompasses several music styles, but keeping intact the elements of the Talisman trademark rhythms. The Swedish bass player and songwriter Marcel Jacob (ex-Yngwie Malmsteen, Europe) teamed once again with US vocalist Jeff Scott Soto, formally of (Yngwie Malmsteen, Soul Sirkus and Journey), drummer Jamie Borger (Treat) and guitarist Fredrik Åkesson (Currently a member of Opeth) to give birth to the recording…
The project had its inception from the great esteem that both Andre Andersen – keyboard maestro and mainman of ROYAL HUNT – and Paul Laine – formerly singer of DANGER DANGER – had one for each other. After the first recording sessions Andre felt the desire to expand the project to another powerful and strong vocalist he had the chance to admire for some time, that is to say PINK CREAM 69 shouter David Readman.
For a huge army of fans around the world, the classic line-up of Whitesnake which recorded albums such as 'Ready An' Willing', 'Live In The Heart Of The City' and 'Come An' Get it' was the definitive rock band of the late 70s and early 80s. There is something unique about the combination of musicians who built Whitesnake's success that cannot be replicated, and the songs that they wrote and recorded together are still incredibly popular.
This collection features rerecorded versions of some of the Manhattan Transfer's best-known songs, including classics like "Embraceable You," "A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square" as well as their inspired reworking of Weather Report's "Birdland."
"The Duke" is the fourth full-length studio album by Jørn Lande. It was released under his stage name Jorn. The album features Jorn's collaboration with two guitarists Jørn Viggo Lofstad and Tore Moren for the first time together. The two had worked with Jorn before, although separately. While Moren played on Worldchanger, Lofstad played on Out to Every Nation. The album also features former TNT and Vagabond bassist Morty Black and former The Snakes drummer Willy Bendiksen. The Duke certainly features some very strong moments, something that Jorn Lande fans have become accustomed to over the past few years.
Fair Warning return after a break some fans thought might be permanent. The band broke into two side projects - Dreamtide and Soul Doctor - both offering something a little different from the traditional FW sound. A strong European melodic hard rock release and a solid comeback for the band. The album doesn't deliver any real surprises, but at the same time, there is no unwarranted style or direction change which often frustrates fans. ’Brother's Keeper’ is purely and simply classic Fair Warning.
The Spirit of Ukko was a real spine-snapper of a debut, turning the traditional concept of Scandinavian power metal up on it's head and sprouting a dozen extra arms in the process in order to maneuver the countless disparate styles being utilized. The lack of adherence to any single songwriting avenue turned out to be Kiuas' trump card, and they certainly controlled the board more often than not…
