Profile This is a must for every fan of early Gotthard, Pink Cream 69 and Pretty Maids. I was pretty surprised by these guys, they really have a good sound here. This is totally European flavored hard rock, with a very minor touch of progressive thrown in. Not quite Dream Theater mind you, but plenty of twirling keyboards and a few good time changes to break songs up. There is also a healthy mix of US stadium rock in the sound. Big traditional hard rock songs, with punching guitars, huge choruses and hooks a plenty fill this album.
