Profile Rare melodic rock released came out in 1992 from Big Note Records in very limited copies and produced by Carsten Bohn. Don’t let the bizarre name throw you off from getting this brilliant AOR rarity! This band plays catchy, melodic AOR that’s packed keys. It reminds of bands like Dominoe and Daytona. The musicianship and production are outstanding. Starting with the fabulous track “Gordon” that comes along like a mix of Jojo meets Seasons in Color, with big keys and a cool chorus, and the ultra catchy “Landslide” in the vein of Rescue, the first two tracks will raise your expectations higher and higher – and it gets even better: “Out Of My Reach” is a true AOR killer even Fahrenheit couldn’t do better and “Fed Up” offers you great guitar work and huge keys, imagine a mixture of Rescue and Surprises. With the wonderful atmospheric ballad “History Of Mankind” you’ll get some typical Magnum elements (great background vocals arrangements) when they had their best of times, back in the 80’s.
