Excellent First release of the band, It has everything, melody, overblown melodic lines, tasty vocals, keyboards that elevates the album, a few steps at the evolution scale, dressing the song, not as backing music, roaring guitars, hooks, power, passion, precision. Production crystal clear.
This is addictive, melodic hard rock, for the ones who enjoy music.

Auras - New Generation - [2010]

‘New Generation’ captures a lot of the typical eighties A.O.R.-influences and especially influences from Journey, Survivor and Toto are easily recognizable. These aren’t exactly the least references of course and the quality level of the total offering is therefore also quite high. The songs are just great and the sound of the album is crystal clear. I myself am quite charmed by the voice of Gui Oliver, who reminds me in certain parts quite a lot of Steve Perry and Hugo Valenti. ‘New Generation’ proves to be a very enjoyable debut album of these Brazilian guys, which will definitely be capable of finding its way to the A.O.R. fans.

N.O.W - Force Of Nature - [2010]

There are many great melodic tunes on Force Of Nature and just as many rockers but the key element here is Philip Bardowell, and the writing ability of Alec Mendonça. Philip Bardowell is sensational and really adds life to the songs.

Human Temple - Murder Of Crows - [2010]

Absent since 2004, Finland's Human Temple returns with their sophomore release Murder of Crows. This album continues their deliberate melodic rock course with some interesting twists to their repertoire, solid AOR melodic rock standards with efficient use of catchy riffs, harmonies and hooks, strong second effort from a polished and creative band with some tricks up their melodic rock sleeves. Very recommended.
