ON THE RISE (Frontiers 2003)

A new AOR band with a line-up consisting of Terje Eide (vocals/guitars), Bennech Lyngboe (vocals), Zsolt Meszaros (drums), Jan Martin Kleveland (bass), Asbjorn Vie (keys) and Roy Bjorge (keys). There are hooks a plenty and plenty of harmony vocals, none more so than on the opener ‘Beat of Your Heart’. ‘Lift You Up’ features Journey like harmonies, whilst ‘Pride’ is a prime time slice of mid-tempo AOR - think Skagarak meets Survivor. If you want a bit more rock then ‘Running In The Night’ has some heavy riffing but still keeps melody to the fore. Other tracks worth a listen include ‘Sadness Hits Like A Stone’ and the 70’s rock tinged ‘Stranded’.

If you like the classic AOR sound then this is one of the best albums to come along in awhile, which along with the new Departure album has got the year of to a cracking start!

***** Out of this world | **** Pretty damn fine |
*** OK, approach with caution unless you are a fan |
** Instant bargain bin fodder | * Ugly. Just ugly
