Avenue Of Allies is rapidly turning into Frontiers Records as everybody is doing it with everybody else around there. Collective talent not always spells great product, though. But in the case of Laneslide it does.
The line-up was put together by Italian songwriter / guitarist Bruno Kraler (Brunorock) and it includes superb vocalist Frank Vestry (Marcello/Vestry, Last Temptation), the inevitable Alessandro Del Vecchio (Hardline, Lionville, Edge of Forever) on keyboards, John Billings (Rick Springfield, Donna Summer, Lancia) on bass, Dominik Hülshorst (ex-Bonfire) on drums, as well as Lino Gonzalez and Bobby Altvater on guitars and Erik Mårtensson & Michael Bormann on backing vocals.
And although this is by no means a quiz in spelling, you all know what this little get-together of all these talents spells, don’t you? It spells AOR with a healthy dash of melodic rock here and there. No surprises, not too much modern technology, no rapping, no funky bass slapping, just plain but very well executed hard rocking songs with sensible melodies and recognisable build-ups and arrangements. It is like catering to a starving crowd, you just know there will be no questions asked, there will be no hard feelings if the odd tune wonders over to the wrong side of cheesy. No, this is another collection of craftily penned, easy-digestible rocking tunes and we love it! Yes, we do!
