Ex-Danger Danger vocalist Ted Poley and his partner in crime, Gerhard Pilcher, are back after "Long Way From Home" album. Their "on-off" relationship with the Frontiers label seems to be "on" again, and the first result of the renewed partnership is "LoveMetal". "LoveMetal" is a concept album about the ups and downs of love, and indeed nine of its ten songs (one instrumental not withstanding) deal with relationships. Excellent follow-up to a less than stellar debut offering. "Summer Nights", "Lovemetal" and "I'll Never Break Your Heart" are great melodic tracks. This is better than the debut but still lags behind the Poley days of D2.
Ted Poley, former Danger Danger and Bone Machine vocalist, has delivered one of his finest performances with "Melodica". Forget anything BAD you may have read or heard or even THOUGHT because this album DELIVERS! Ted has returned with a collection that is a wonderful example of melodic hard rock at its finest.
Works for violin and piano are an important part of Cyril Scott’s chamber music. This disc presents three sonatas which span his output. The capricious and ruminative First Violin Sonata ranks among the most convincing and successful of his earlier large-scale compositions. Sonata Melodica is a more relaxed yet equally quixotic work, while the Third Violin Sonata is one of the most inventive from his later years.
According to Anglagard‘s own discography, playing at Progfest in 1993 was one of their earliest live gigs. The young group at work had just released their first album Hybris and what you hear is a young group at work whose ambition and hunger steamrolled over their few deficiencies. This debut album and its follow up Epilog were two of the first to light a fire under what was a growing revival in the symphonic progressive rock of the 70s…
"…There are several songs on the album that do showcase the group at their best…" ~allmusicguide
