FAITH AND FIRE Accelerator Metal Heaven (2007)

Faith And Fire

The name may not mean much to you but the band members certainly will as they include Riot's Mike Flyntz and Tony Moore (he sang on Riot's classic 'Thundersteel' album) plus bass player Danny Miranda, ex-Blue Oyster Cult now part of Queen's touring band.

This album reminds me so much of latter day Blue Oyster Cult, with Moore's vocals at times sounding like BOC's Buck Dharma on the quieter tunes such as the lighters aloft ballad 'Angel'. 'Ready' sets the standard perfectly - hard rocking riffs, powerful vocals plus anti-Bush lyrics.

Very Riot in sound but with more emphasis on the harmonies, both guitars and vocals (something that prevails throughout the whole album). 'Radio Superstar' and the title track could easily gain airplay on rock radio, as both possess strong choruses and again great guitar parts.

Don't let this little gem getaway as it is a must have for fans of Riot, BOC and lovers of well crafted hard rock/classic metal.
