Described by the press as ´one of the most impressive new names on the melodic rock radar` this young,
British quintet fronted by current T.N.T.-vocalist Tony Mills are riding a resurgence in melodic rock.
Originally founded in Wales around the talents of keyboard player Gareth David Noon, guitarist Christopher Gould and bassist Gareth Vanstone,
the band were keen to capitalize on their burgeoning reputation and returned to the studio late last year to begin recording their follow up.
Playing an unashamedly keyboard led, yet guitar infused brand of hard rock, the band have once again teamed up with producer Sheena Sear (Magnum)
and her crystal clear production on "Living and dying in high definition" has captured the muscle and melody the band display live.
Keyboards and breathless vocals provide the opening of "Deep Down (There's A Price For Love)"
Serpentine makes an immediate impact with this song...
"Philadelphia" is one of the highlights, a keyboard driven melodic rocker with a catchy chorus and heavenly harmonies.
"Dreamer" will delight fans of Journey an epic track with galloping guitars and great vocals by Tony Mills.
On the midtempo "Where Do We Go From Here?" the band sounds very british reminding you of Heartland....
The ballad "Love Is Blue" sounds natural and from the heart.
Emotional is the word to describe "Best Days Of Our Lives", while "Cry is like an AOR breeze to your ears.
The band then offers something different on the rocking "Nuremberg"
The album ends on a high note with the long and melodic epic "Forgotten Heroes", a track with fantastic variations and instrumentation.
Tony Mills shines on his best performance in years, and although he's no longer the band's vocalist (replaced by Matt Black)
He will be contributing to the band on one way or another in the future.
