Without fear, we are able to see more clearly our connections to others. Without fear, we have more room for understanding and compassion. Without fear, we are truly free.
"Through the Storm" is the twelfth studio album by American heavy metal band Riot. It was released on August 26, 2002. It is the only Riot album to feature drummer Bobby Rondinelli, best known for his work with Rainbow and Black Sabbath. We're in 2002 and, 25 years after their first album, they are making almost the same music as in their first years. It's evident they are not the most innovative band in the world but, people who like classic Heavy and Power Metal will be grateful for records like this one in the XXI century. Japanese edition of this album has an extra track: Somebody. And the CD has two cover songs "Only You Can Rock Me" of UFO and "Here Comes the Sun" of The Beatles.
The Storm's debut album, self-titled and released in 1991 by Interscope, was produced by Beau Hill. It rose to #133 on the Billboard album chart, scoring two Mainstream Rock radio hits with the #6 “I’ve Got a Lot to Learn About Love” (which also reached #26 on the Billboard Hot 100) and the #22 “Show Me the Way”. Their follow-up album, Eye of the Storm, was recorded for Interscope Records in 1993 but never released by Interscope.
The Storm was an American supergroup rock band, formed in the Bay Area of San Francisco during the early 1990s. The band is best known for their first single, the power ballad "I've Got a Lot to Learn About Love", which peaked at #6 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and at #26 on the Billboard Hot 100. The band featured three of Journey's former members (two of whom were founding members) - Gregg Rolie (original lead vocalist and keyboardist of Journey) on keyboards and lead & backing vocals, Ross Valory on bass and background vocals, and Steve Smith on drums. Kevin Chalfant, who had a #12 rock chart hit in 1982 as lead vocalist with AOR band 707 , was the lead vocalist, and Josh Ramos (who cited Journey founder and guitarist Neal Schon as a major influence) was the lead guitarist. Ramos had previously replaced Journey guitarist Neal Schon in one of his other, non-Journey groups Hardline.
