Profile This mega rare 10 track album was recorded over the years and finally released in 2005. Stunning hair metal/melodic hard rock from this Illinois based band. It took EXIT quite a few years to finish but the result was worth the wait. Though this was finally released in 2005, it disappeared very quickly. Basically EXIT is playing a mix of 80s and some early 90’s mainstream melodic hard rock mixed with keys. A mix between Firehouse, Tesla and Slaughter seems to be the best comparison but other songs you’ll hear Jet Red and White Sister. At the start things are very early 90’s, with as best song “Towards The Sun”, a great melodic rocker like early 90’s Guardian, Tesla meets Bon Jovi, with a really good strong catchy chorus.

However, the best songs on the record are definitely the catchy uptempo 80’s songs like “Runaway Missy’, “You Feel Right” and “Sea of love” that sound like a mix between Jet Red, White Sister and Danger Danger. The band’s 5 members have played professionally for numerous years. Throughout the bands career they have played countless clubs, concert halls and stadium events. They have opened for act such as, The Guess Who, Head East, Foghat, Black Oak Arkansas, Blackfoot, Jackyl, 38 Special, Bad Company, Great White , Tesla, Rick Derringer, Ronnie Montrose and Kansas. The lead vocals of singer Mark Lee are high pitched and are more in the Shy area.You’ll be super impressed with this hair metal/AOR/melodic hard rock gem.
