Profile Here is the very scarce debut by the Swedish melodic hardrock band Quil formed in the mid 80s. In 1986 they released a 4-tracks demo cassette and the single “Read It in Your Eyes / Hiroshima (When Will It End)” in 1987 before their first full lenght album “Out of Blue Corners” in 1989 throught the Danish Bums Records, playing pure melodic hardrock in the scandinavian tradition in its finest form. The band later changed name to QUILL and the music went in the so called stoner direction…Released only on vinyl in limited copies and one of the rarities that worth your attention.

Profile Parallels is a 4 person band from Kansas City, Missouri. There is little else known about the band. Lead vocalist Ron Rogers has vocal pipes that bands would wish for – able to rock hard and sing passionately as well, lead guitarist Dominick Grimes provides shredding guitar work. The production on this rare Indie is incredible. I hear elements of Queensryche. Another holy grail indie comes to mind when I think of this band – that is “Uncertain Future’s” Shock To The System release. All Hard Rock/Metal bands would drool over this album. Soaring vocals and great axework make this is a record that you’ll enjoy thoroughly.  Very hard to be found nowdays…
