FAHRENHEIT ‘Chain Reaction’ Perris Records (2004)

Here's a band I have heard touted on for quite a while now, without ever bothering to check them out. Out of this recent bunch of promo's from Perris Records, this is one of the better ones.

This 5 piece from Chile, heavy 80's influenced by the likes of Kiss, Bon Jovi and Europe. The party rock David Lee Roth era Van Halen jumps out at you, during opener, 'Prom Nite', and from then on, it's pretty much safe played 80's metal.

The lyrics of course are forgettable, the music is tight, well played and catchy. Several of the songs have choruses that stick in your head and are quite memorable.

Half way through, the ballad, 'Be Mine', is a welcome break from the more uptempo songs. A classy ballad, that highlights, singer Chaz Thomson often Jon Bon Jovi esque voice. Throughout the album, he doesn't do a bad job at all, holding things together quite nicely. Quite why there is a 1 minute 36 second guitar solo on a 40 minute album is quite puzzling. Guitarist Javier Bassino barrage of notes offers nothing new or spectacular and ultimately is filler.

A decent effort and one for followers of the above mentioned bands, but obviously not a match for them in the class department.
