CD review EUROPE "Walk the Earth"

(8/10) The announcement of a new Europe longplayer is definitely a moment that’s exciting, immediately connected to discussion about how the new album could/would sound. At least these were the thoughts I had when I heard that “Walk the Earth” is on its way to the record stores.

“Walk the Earth” is Europe’s eleventh studio release, following the excellent “War of Kings” record from 2015. After having had their huge success in the 80’s the second era of Europe, which began in 2003, showcased a band that evolved their sound. Not only that the band members could gain a lot of life experience compared to the young and wild “Final Countdown”-days, also the music evolved over time.

Europe’s latest releases were very much influenced by classic rock and blues, something that fits the band very well. The mentioned predecessor “War of Kings” reflected these influences in perfection while still keeping the Europe trademarks more than alive.

No doubt that Joey Tempest’s voice is a crucial ingredient to Europe’s success, not to forget the awesome guitar play by John Norum. It’s the cooperation between the two that creates a lot of magic when it comes to Europe’s sound, heavily supported by the other three band members (John Leven, Mic Michaeli and Ian Haugland).

What’s another asset when it comes to Europe is the consistency in the line-up. These guys know each other for so long, which allows them to focus on songs and the density of those. The new studio album “Walk the Earth” reflects this in a good fashion. All trademarks of Europe are present from beginning to end. This album is a delight. It sounds like an homage to bands like Led Zeppelin (“Haze”) and Deep Purple while having a very present Europe expression included in each of the tunes.

The most interesting number on the new album is entitled "Pictures". At least I can't remember having heard a similar song from Sweden's finest. If you merge David Bowie and Pink Floyd you get close to what this song sounds like. Keep in a moderate pace the tune is a gently swinging one with a lot of feel that comes with it. 

"Kingdom United" instead includes some Thin Lizzy while the uptempo "GTO" reminds of the faster classic of a band like Deep Purple. What sounds like a lack of inspiration still comes with a lot of Europe being embedded, giving the tracks an own identity. Europe still sounds like Europe, regardless what influences one of the biggest influencers in rock music.

Europe added with “Walk the Earth” another pearl to their discography. It might be that some of the earlier releases were shining a little bit more but this longplayer is still far better than most of what you get served from other bands these days. “Walk the Earth” is mature hardrock rooted in the 70’s, benefiting of the technical possibilities of the 2010’s.

Live review EUROPE / TAX THE HEAT, TivoliVredenburg, Utrecht, 14.11.2016

Veröffentlicht am 15. November 2016 von Markus W. in Europe, Tax The Heat, Hardrock, Blues, Heavy Metal, News, Live Review, Classic Rock, Rock

I think that the summer of '86 was one of the peak moments when it comes to highly melodic hardrock. Bon Jovi released their mega-seller "Slippery When Wet" which was something to expect since the guys had already some hits on the first two albums. The bigger surprise came from Sweden and was called Europe. Actually it was also their third release but the band was less known than Bon Jovi. Europe's earlier records have been harder than what they released on "The Final Countdown", an album that reached the masses by combining excellent hooks, some rocking guitars and big melodies, all built on a solid keyboard foundation. I don't know how often I listened to this release that shared one of my tape with Dokken's "Under Lock and Key" masterpiece.

Now, 30 years later, Europe takes the opportunity to celebrate this awesome album with 'The Final Countdown - 30th anniversary tour 2016' and one stop was in Utrecht, The Netherlands.

Before the crowd could enjoy of what they came for it was up to Tax The Heat to start the evening with some rock and blues influenced hardrock. To be honest, I haven't heard of the guys earlier and therefor I was looking forward to see them live.

Four British gentlemen, that joined Europe already for some dates of the "War of Kings"-tour, entered the stage. Nicely dressed in suites they reminded a bit of The Hyves eventhough the music was slightly difrerent. After the drummer took off his jacket and took place behind the drumkit a 40 minutes rock'n'roll show started. Tax The Heat plays hardrock that comes with a lot of blues. The room was filled already with quite some fans who became more and more enthusiastic with each song played. And also the band had a good time, ending with a sing-a-long part and the whole band gathering around the drum kit for some heavy riffs. A good band and a well chosen opening act.

Live review EUROPE / TAX THE HEAT, TivoliVredenburg, Utrecht, 14.11.2016

Then it was time for starting off 100 minutes of hardrock performed by one of the spearheads of this genre. Europe built their set on two albums only. Next to the classic from 1986 the guys also played the entire "War of Kings" album this evening, including the instrumental "Vasastan".

Having a setlist with songs from 'only' two albums is a brave decision. Most bands would have chosen for the classic album and a 'best of...' set - but not Europe. In my opinion it was a good decision since the latest studio release "War of Kings" belongs to the best records of the five-piece, packed with great songs that shows a band that grew over time and became more mature. Each of the tunes was performed highly enthusiastic with Joey Tempest being the frontman and entertainer as he's known for. Next to his stage presence he's also still a great singer and it's again the magic between singer and guitarist that makes the difference.

Talking about the six string, watching and listening to John Norum is a pure enjoyment. His guitar play is one of Europe's main characteristics and each of his solos was spot-on. Of course I should not forget to mention the tight performing rhythm section with John Levén and Ian Haugland. It's obvious that these guys make music together since many years in which they constantly provided an exciting groove. Last but not least Europe wouldn't be Europe without keyboards. Who on this planet doesn't know the keyboard sounds in the beginning of "The Final Countdown", provided by a cheerful Mic Michaeli.

After the last tone of "War of Kings" faded away the room got dark and the countdown began. Time was turned back on the two big screens, showing the different releases in a reverse order till reaching the classic from 1986.

The mentioned keyboard flourish filled the room and the crowd got even wilder than before. The title track of Europe's masterpiece was celebrated by the fans, most of them knowing the band probably already since 30 years. "Rock the Night" kept the energy level high and also the following eight songs have been very much appreciated by everybody in the room. Loud singing fans, an excited band, a good sound and awesome songs made this evening to a special one.

"Love Chaser" was, as not expected differently, the closer. However, Europe can't leave the stage without "The Final Countdown" and that's why the played a few notes again as being the final chords that have been performed that night.

The last releases showed that Europe still belongs to the big players in melodic rock and metal. something they confirmed again that night in rainy Utrecht. A night to remember.

CD review KEE MARCELLO "Scaling Up"

Veröffentlicht am 19. Oktober 2016 von Markus W. in Kee Marchello, Europe, News, Hardrock, Melodic Metal, Melodic Rock, CD Review

(7/10) Kee Marcello is a well known name in rock music since the guy enriched Europe's sound between 1986 and 1992, being part of records like "Out of This World". But next to this period in time and next to many contributions to records of various artists Marcello also worked on several solo records of which the newest one hits the record stores as you read this review.

"Scaling Up" is Marcello's 4th solo album and it comes with twelve songs, all melodic hardrock songs that are, what a surprise, coming with a strong guitar focus. "Scaling Up" is built on a good production and it was Marchello himself that gave this longplayer a well-crafted sound. Next to his role as producer, the guitarist also took over the vocal duties and did the keyboards too (except "Wild Child").

Talking about the songs on the album, it's the mentioned "Wild Child" that belongs to the highlights on "Scaling Up" and also "Scandinavia" sound pretty good. The latter comes with a catchy chorus and rocking guitar in the verse, a combination that works very well for this tune. The soulful moments are present too and "Don't Know How to Love No More" is one of them.

In general I must say that there is no really bad song on the album. But unfortunately there isn't an outstanding one on this longplayer either. "Scaling Up" is a good hardrock album, but not more than that. Sometimes I got the idea that things sounded a bit old-fashion with songs very much referring to some earlier highlights in Marcello's rich history. This is per se nothing bad, it just didn't give me the real shivers.

CD review TREAT "Ghost of Graceland"

Veröffentlicht am 20. April 2016 von Markus W. in Treat, Hardrock, Melodic Metal, Classic Rock, News, CD Review, Europe, Rock

(8/10) It happened in the wake of Europe success with "The Final Countdown" that some more Scandinavian melodic rock bands got extra attention too. Treat was one of these bands, celebrating with "Dreamhunter" from 1987 one of their biggest hits. But things didn't stay on a sky high level and reality took over again step by step, something that led a disbanding in 1993.

It took till 2005 when a compilation sold very well, something that can be seen as the take-off for Treat part II. Surprisingly it was and is almost the original line-up that found some common ground again. The only change happened at the four-string, done nowadays by Pontus Egberg. The rest of Treat, which is Anders, Robert, Jamie and Partick, have been part of the band already in the early days, something that guarnteed a certain continuity in Treat's sound. It feels like the guys found again some fun and passion for melodic hardrock, something that became obvious already with the 2010 album "Coup de Grace".

In the meantime 6 more years went by and Treat used the time for working on their next punch called "Ghost of Graceland".

The new record features twelve brand new songs, all showing that the five-piece is still hungry for well-done melodic metal music. Each of the tracks combines hard rocking guitars, a strong rhythm section and a good sense for melodies into a mixture that is beyond a lot of bands in this genre. The experience, the guys can build on, is paying back on "Ghost of Graceland".

And also today, I can see the parallels with Europe. Maybe not that much when it comes to the sound of the two band, knowing that Joey Tempest and has gang discovered the blues for their music. No, it's more about releasing a longplayer that sound mature and still energetic. "Ghost of Graceland" stands for melodic hardrock that is mainly beyond genre stereotypes, combining classic rock roots with a contemorary sound.

And the album also got a very personal touch. As Anders Wikstrom describes, it is his take on the world. The title track, as one example, is a metaphor that stands for "paradies or prison" and also the toher tunes are about current issue from politics, economics and relationships.

If you like melodic metal you should have listend to "Ghost of Graceland", an album that became surprisingly good, bringing Treat again in the spotlight after having been away for too long.

CD review FATE'S RIGHT BAND "Smile" EP

Veröffentlicht am 11. November 2015 von Markus W. in Fate's Right Band, Hardrock, Rock, Blues, News, CD Review, Europe

(7/10) It wasn't too long ago when Swedish Fate's Right Band released their latest EP "Knucklebuster Hits". Now the guys from Umeå are back with a new five-track EP. "Smile" is a logical next step for the band, meaning that Fate's Right Band continues with their passionate hardrock.

"Black Heart of Stone" is the opener that feels in the beginning like a Guns'n'Roses inspired rocker before the Europe influences come more up to surface. It's a pretty cool bluesy rocker that sticks immediately.

"I Wasn't Ready" is the next track. It isn't that easy going as the opener and has some Styx-like melody lines in the verse. It takes a while to get into this track that is less catchy as the opener.

The swinging "My World is Falling" instead is build on a steady beat and a swinging melody. This tune is easy going and touches the fields of AOR. Good that the title track "Smile" is harder again before with "We Can Fake It" kicks in and rounds off this EP.

"Smile" is another good album from Umeå that should be checked by hard-/bluesrockers. Fate's Right Band don't reinvent the wheel, but the know damn good how to use it to roll on.

CD review STASH "A matter of time"

Veröffentlicht am 13. Juli 2015 von Markus W. in Stash, Europe, Hardrock, Melodic Metal, Heavy Metal, News, CD Review, Rock, Classic Rock

(7/10) The title of this album couldn't be chosen better. "A matter of time" is a perfect match with the real situation of Stash; or better said, their debut.

Stash is from The Netherlands and the line-up consists out of Alfred Kers (b), Gosse Nieuwenhuis (d), Roel Nottrot (g), Edwin Woltering (key) and Bert Kivits (v). The five-piece worked on some songs and demos in the second half of the 80's but didn't get further than this.
Stash gained a certain status in the melodic metal underground. That was it and the band disappeared from the scene rather quickly.
I think what Stash will get famous for is the time spent from forming the band in 1985 to the moment when they managed to release their debut. It took them 30 years. I think, this is a world record. And in all meanings of the word it was 'a matter of time'. It's just the question if the time is right for this kind of music in 2015.
The debut will see the light of day as we speak and it will contain 10 songs; embedded in intro and outro plus a prelude. Some of the numbers are re-recorded demo tracks while others are new. In addition Stash put the old demo song versions on the album too which makes it to a quite extensive musical experience.
The music of Stash is typically 80's melodic metal/rock. It was the time when Europe had it's first peak with their mega hit "The final countdown". Having this in mind and adding a bit of the Pretty Maids "Future world"-sound to it to it gives you a good idea about the music of the Dutch five-piece. We are talking about  highly melodic metal where Rocking riffs are build on a powerful keyboards foundation. This is the general pattern of the songs. This makes the numbers catchy but not cheesy. 
What stands out are the genre-typical vocals done by Emerald-singer Bert Kivits. His wide vocal range includes the high pitches that are a substantial part of 80's melodic metal. 
When it comes to the production of "A matter of time" I have to say that it is an authentic one. What I mean is, that the guys kept the sound of the eighties and didn't over-produce the longplayer. But actually, in my humble opinion, it could have been a bit of a more modern sound that would have helped the album even more.
All in all fans of Stash will be happy that there is finally a debut of the Dutch melodic rockers and supporters of melodic metal should give this longplayer a chnace too.

CD review EUROPE "War of kings"

Veröffentlicht am 8. März 2015 von Markus W. in Europe, Hardrock, Rock, Classic Rock, Heavy Metal, News, CD Review

(9/10) "War of kings" is the new album from Europe and is already their tenth studio release in their career. As almost no other band the five guys can reinvent Europe again and again, giving their sound always a slightly new expression by constantly sticking to their trademarks.

Regardless if we talk about the hardrock days from the beginning ("Wings of tomorrow"), the commercial rock times with "The final countdown" or the very blues and classic rock influenced last record "Bag of bones" - all those longplayers had their charm and could have been easily identified as being Europe releases.

A crucial part of Europe is the chemistry in the band. Joey Tempest, John Norum, John Leven, Mic Michaeli and Ian Haugland are playing together since almost the beginning of the band. They have grown together during time and the latest releases have presented a band that got mature by still being young at heart.

But it's especially the combination Tempest and Norum that is very important for the band. Singer and guitarist working together is the success factor of many great bands - like Europe.

The new album goes a bit away from the bluesy expression on "Bag of bones" and sounds more rocking again. Joey Tempest said, that "War of kings" is the album that band always wanted to creta wheh they have been kids and listened to bands like Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath. I think they succeeded. 

Already the title tack, which is also the opener, reflects this very well. The track sound sharder than the ones on "Bad of bones", showing some Zeppelin melody lines a heavy riff from Norum. It's a cool entry into the album.

The Purple references can be heard in tracks like "Second day". It's a pretty releaxed song, build on a great melody and an organ that is so much classic rock. For me a highlight on an album that is full of great songs.

The blues comes back in "Praise you" and John Norum's gentle singing guitar make the track really special. And also "Angels (with borken hearts) is a bluesy tune that  Whitesnake couldn't write and perform better. That's the way a soulful ballad needs to sound. It gives you the shivers.

"Days of rock n roll" promise in the title what you get in the song. This is rock'n'roll from the seventies with a galloping rhythm and a cool riff. Joey Tempest's vocals are just outstanding and the song is another pearl on "War of kings". 

"War of kings" adds another tinte to Europe's sound palette. It is one of the best albums the band from Sweden ever wrote and released. Yes, "The final countdown" is for the masses, but "War of kings" is the band at their best. It's a longplayer of a band that got mature over all the years and enjoys the ease of making rock music. Thank you for this album.

CD review LYNX "Caught in the trap" re-release

Veröffentlicht am 1. März 2015 von Markus W. in Lynx, Europe, Rainbow, Hardrock, Classic Rock, Deep Purple, News, CD Review, Melodic Metal, Ro

(8/10) If you google 'Lynx band' you will find many many results. But it's just a small amount links that brings you to Lynx from Sweden. This has to do with the fact that the band existed in the 80's (pre-internet times) and released only one album. "Caught in the trap" came out in 1985 and was the only album from the five-piece band.

Lynx is Mats Eriksson (v), Per Larsson (g), Mats Hermasson (key), Kauno Vaattovaara (b) and Carl Moser (d) - all of them having a faible for good melodic metal that is based on Rainbow and the early Europe. But also Loverboy and TNT could be cross references for the sound of Lynx.

The result of their work is/was suprisingly good and nothing sounds like rip-offs from the before mentioned bands. Lynx has their own sound that combines melodies with a certain heaviness. The keyboards build a strong foundation for many songs ("Win or loose" or "Don't fool me") but the guitars riffs are never pushed too much into the back. Just listen to the excellent "Fingers crossed". Dokken have not written better songs even in their "Under lock and keys" days. "Fingers crossed" is a thrilling hardrock anthem that has an irresistable hookline and a power that puts a spell on you. For me the best tune on the album.

Another song that's worth to be mentioned is "Final race". The organ reminds to Deep Purple's releases in the eighties and the drums are merciless pushing this song. And also "Nightwaker" with its mystic touch has a lot of identity. 

I could continue this way since there is no single filler on the album. It's great that No Remorse re-released this pearl of melodic metal. I wonder how I could miss this album in the 80's since it contains great music and will be loved by fans from the above mentioned bands. Melodic metal can't be played much better.
