Profile A.N.D. is a hard rock outfit coming from Birmingham formed in 1985. A.N.D. debut album is so titled because just 100 Hours to record. Recorded in July 1989 at Mad Hat Studios, Bridgnorth, produced by Paul May and Paul Hudson, came out in 1990 by World Wide Records and saw success throughout Europe in the early 90s. The opening “Rejected” is a soaring rocker song having a harmony tune, great guitar riffs and a darkin’ voice prefigures you for what will follow. “Stone In Love” is another highlight with great bass line and my personal anthem coming with “Time Will Tell”, an amazing number with pulsing keyboard change, fuzzy guitar power chords and a very memorable chorus.

The feast continue with “Mystic Lady” a killer song that rocks hard with highlight here the drums and the pompus keyboard solo in the middle. The opening key solo in “Destiny” make space for another great song with tones of guitar riffs to be bombarded you and last but not least “Brave New World” is a hard rocking metal track with great guitar and driving rhythm throughout and a great way to close the album. A unknown gem to many rockers out there that not to be discovered. My only objection here is the weak production and the vocals in some songs sounds like coming from the pit. If you like bands in the vein of The Charlatans, Hard Rain, Hodson, Janus and Ten check these guys…
