Profile This band hails from New York and they released this album in microscopic numbers over 20+ years ago on their own label.  A true undiscovered hair metal treasure where each song is infectious, especially the track, “Sunday Morning” as it reminds of a song that wold be on the Mr. Lucky or Wildboyz.  The ballad, “October Soul” is a heartfelt ballad, with cool guitar work.  “Rats In The Cellar” goes back to the hair metal roots, with glam style vocals and incredible chorus.  “Show Me The Way” is an AOR gem of a track, with breathtaking guitar solos and a sing-a-long chorus.  “Blue Skies” features some acoustic guitar, while the closing track, “Heart Of Stone” is an AOR lovers dream.  Every song is memorable.  Major collectors are unaware that this record even exists.  Certainly for fans of Mr. Lucky, Wildboyz, Aria and White Eagle.  Another Melodic Rock band that should have made it big! The band lasted a few years but fell by the way side and split. Dustin Bonz would later become 151.
