Profile Heidi’s Years is one of those albums belonging to the category of rare. Music for Heidi started as a hobby at a young age. She started with piano and violin but soon chenged to clarinet  which was supposed to become a career. She studied classical music and rock and roll while she started to sang only for her pleasure in the band of her older brother, whο was initiate in metal and melodic rock music scene. With the help of her brother Pekka she released her first album titled “Years” 1991. What about the album? Well the songs were sang in English the melodies are outstanding, powerful and memorable with tight production.

The tunes varied  between melodic hard rock to aor and pop blend with pompus keys, great riffs, some really blowing choruses and crunchy vocals reminds a mix between Bonnie Tyler and Pat Benatar. Hightlights here are “Angel’s Eyes” with great bass line, the rockin’ “Crazy Night” with a powerful and catchy chorus that will stuck in your head with the first heard, the mid-tempo “Touch me” having great rhythm guitars, amazing lyrics and a very touchy refrain, the ballad “Help” is another gem with passionate vocals you will repeat it again and again and definetely the powerpop anthem “My Endless Love” with great guitars, harmony backing vocals and one more catchy chorus.  EMI became interested in them, and it would have been quite ready to take them abroad, but it became as it turned and the band broke up shortly after…If you ever find this hidden gem don’t pass it!!!
