Profile This mega rare 10-track album was released in 1993 on MSB Records of Germany and is self produced. With a rougher sounding Bon Jovi or Johnny Lima like vocals, DISCOVERY play some excellent AOR/melodic hard rock. The band uses some great keys along with some nice guitar work, plus alot of catchy melodies and hooks. The album opens with a bombastic intro: great guitar fills and bombastic keys here. Then the first track “Magic Nights” starts with a cool lead guitar and swirling keys – wow! this is how AOR should sound like! With a huge hookline this song sounds very close to Robert Louden meets Michael C. Dragon. It goes on with an awesome ballad that could’ve been taken from Kirka’s “The Spell” and the great up-tempo track “Back To The Start Again” that comes along with a perfect mix of smoking guitars and full blown keyboards, reminding of Shelter. It’s an extremely rare release that is deserving of a place in your collection.
