Profile “Constancia” is a new outfit on its first release; the band is put together by well established musicians such as bass player Michael Muller (“Jaded heart”), lead singer David Fremberg (“R Anderson’s Space odyssey”), lead guitarist Janne Stark (“Planet alliance”), drummer Pete Svensson and Michael Rosengren on Keys. It is very likely that the name might mislead you in thinking that this is an AOR project which is far from the truth. “Constancia” is a proper hard rock band with rough lead vocals intense drumming and aggressive guitars.

What separates “Constancia” from the other melodic hard rock bands mentioned above is that “Lost and Gone” is filled with lead guitar melodies and extensive guitar solos that go beyond typical hard rock; furthermore it seems that the whole album is actually built around the guitar parts which are as much in the spotlight as the lead vocals. The overall sound of the album comes closer to classic “Danger Danger” being both catchy but also exhibiting long scale guitar solos.

“Constancia” demonstrates undeniable potential and could develop into a first class melodic hard rock act if band members decide to put out more album of this short. If you miss Hard Rock with ripping guitar melodies and flamboyant solos count this as a must.
