If your looking for a British rock band that play fantastic, intelligent sounding melodic rock, then Faithealer could just be right up your street.

The name Ivan Gunn will probably ring a bell with many of you who read Fireworks and Rocktopia. Keyboard player and songwriter for the likes of Pride and Balance Of Power, Ivan is a man who has, shall we say, over the last few years kept what can only be described as a very low profile. Though thankfully that situation has now been rectified with the release of this brand new album/band/collaboration called Faithealer. Faithealer is basically Ivan and ex S.I.N/Forever vocalist Jason Marks plus a lot of Ivan's old band mates, who have joined together to put out one fine slice of melodic, pomp tinged rock. Though what I like most about this album is the way it sounds, the production is strong, clear and dynamic and has a love for all things that are rock, and British rock to boot. So forgive me if I go a little bit over the top with this album review but I think we have another wonderful British rock act to boast about.

So what then of the music and songs? Well, if you think that a bombastic blend of first album Balance of Power, mixed with bits of Pride, topped off with a generous dose of Heartland, UFO and early US pomp rock keyboards sounds good, then believe me when I say it is, and then some. Rarely does an album by a British band grab my attention quite as much as this CD has. Yet that is just what Faithealer have done, grabbed my attention with their infectious pomp filled songs and now they refuse to let me go. Take the song 'Stronger' as an example, a catchy as hell song with a hookline strong enough to land an elephant, plus some rich sumptuous keyboards that I had long thought assigned to history, all join together to give you a track that assaults your senses in all the good ways possible. And when you continue this assault with another ten cuts (plus one bonus) of the same high quality then you know that your listening to something a bit special.

So if your looking for a British rock band that play fantastic, intelligent sounding melodic rock, and who can take on the rest of the European rock acts and beat most of them into a cocked ha,t then Faithealer could just be right up your street.
