The solos are great, the singing is glorious and the backline is gargantuan.

"Ewwwrrrrrr, what a rush!" – Michael Hegstrand aka wrestler Road Warrior Hawk. When you have an adrenaline rush, it will often have a marked effect on the body. The one above, formed by Tave Wanning and Erik Mårtensson (W.E.T. and Eclipse), might be said to produce a similar feeling. Their self-titled debut was good enough to make people eager for this one. This one is a bit smashing as well.

They have a secret weapon you see, vocalist Wanning. She lounges on the cover and is seen wearing band-named leather trousers and pushing her hind quarters to the camera on their website, but forget that (I said forget it... okay, I can wait). Right, moving on, this is truly about her voice. It nestles among the raucous guitars and heavy bass like Stevie Nicks. Yes, Nicks, and that sweet, smoky feel is a lovely counter to the Hair Metal stylings found here as riffs scythe through, beats are big, and the bass is ballsy.

Fireworks - The Ultimate Magazine For Melodic Rock Music

They were thought of as Melodic Rock, but this large statement dispels that. For the record, the symptoms of an adrenaline rush are – 1. Increased Strength: heads down Rocker 'Love Like Poison' may make you ball your fist and pump it repeatedly (steady now...) – 2. Heightened Senses: Bouncy opener 'Adrenaline' has a sing-along chorus which will cause your cochlea to sit up and beg – 3. Increased Breathing: 'Wild Side' doubling a solo and then breaking out to a triumphal scream may make you gasp with delight.

The solos are great, the singing is glorious and the backline is gargantuan... all great! Honestly, rush to hear this when it comes out.
