Profile Another super rare slice of hair metal/melodic hard rock released first time on cd through Retrospect Records. Originally independently released only on cassette in limited quantities back in 1988. The band hailed from Seatle formed in 1987 and were active till 1991. Before vocalist Sullivan Bigg joined the band he was member of the New York hard rockers “Wild August”.

With the trademark of big backing vocals, blistering guitar solos and memorable hooks, gave as a very good album and definetely a second release would have given the band a more solid sound because talent they had.. As for the song “Heartbreaker” opens the album as a highlight,”Bad Girls” is a cool track,not too relevant though,”Faithfully” is a nice ballad (do not be mistaken by the same song of Journey!),”One Night Stands” rocks good,”I Like” is a fave along with the AORish one “By My Side”,”Line Of Fire” is a catchy one and also is “Don’t Say Goodbye”.
