A must for fans of Classic Hard Rock.

Wonderworld return with their sophomore release simply entitled 'II'; the follow-up to 2014's self-titled debut release. Wonderworld evolved from being Ken Hensley's (Uriah Heep) backing band and take their name from one of the Heep's classic tracks. The power trio consist of Italian vocalist Roberto Tiranti (Labyrinth) and a talented pair of Norwegians; guitarist Ken Ingwersen (Street Legal) and Drummer Tom Fossheim (Live Fire). Ingwersen was also responsible for the albums production and he was ably assisted by engineer Jock Loveband.

The album kicks off with the Bluesy Hard Rocker 'Forever Is A Lie' and gives the listener a definite taste of what is to come. Tiranti's deep vocals are really top-notch and deliver both a raw and emotional feel; also standing out is the fantastic arrangement which gives Ingwersen's guitar work a huge presence, and this is just the start. The tracks gain in momentum as you travel through this release and you pick up the bands influences as there is a definite Whitesnake/Badlands vibe to the music. The songs are a great showcase for the trio's talents who are, on current form, on top of their game.

The ballad 'It's Not Over Yet' is a personal favourite and features an emotionally charged vocal from Tiranti, this would have been a radio smash a couple of decades ago. Other standout moments are 'Echo Of My Thoughts' which contains some fabulous fret-work again from Ingwersen, 'Evil in Disguise' with its up-tempo sound, and 'Memories' which again highlights the trio's intense but yet controlled power.

Wonderworld's 'II' is a fantastic slab of Hard Rock, chock full of outstanding guitar work, a superb vocal performance from the highly talented Tiranti and not forgetting the fantastic rhythm section gelling the whole project together. The band have been touring for the last eighteen months and this set of songs is the result of their labours, long may they continue. Don't be afraid to visit Wonderworld; it's full of great musical rides and you won't regret it. A must for fans of Classic Hard Rock.
