My Music Review · Personal blog

With a long history since the early 90s the currently band line up is

Ian Salpekar and Will Glover.

To describe their music is easy....great! But that would be a little too little to say about these guys.

The music is fantastic, classic hard rock with a twist, cool guitar riffs, brilliant vocals and groovy melodies is what makes them sound traditional but in a modern way with their very own style.

They released the EP "Resurrection " in 2016 and the debut album

"PastLife" is planned to be released for the end of 2020.

The new song "Love Caught Me Out" is re-released and one of my favorites but I can say without hesitation that I love them all.

It's not a wonder that they make big waves on radio stations all over the world.

Have a listen, the music is available on all major platforms and enjoy great rock music!
