COUNTRY: USA

STYLE: Melodic Hard Rock

PROFILE: As soon as this five song EP begins I hear the Bon Jovi coming through.   I wonder if maybe I have made some sort of mistake.  Is this a reissue?  Was this originally released in 1989?  I check my facts and realize that this is in fact a 2012 release and I have not gone back to the future.

DALLAS is the brainchild of Bryan Dallas, a 26 years old musician from Castro Valley, CA, whom composes all of the music and performs the vocals and all the instruments in his debut EP “Over The Edge”.

Freshly formed in the beginning of 2012, Dallas recruited 4 local musicians to help spread on stage his gold old fashioned good time rock and roll. But the songs of this recording were written some years ago by Bryan alone, and recorded in different studios totally produced by himself.

Keep in mind, this is for fans of straight up rock n’ roll. Wailing vocals, soaring guitars, and larger-than-life songs. The way it used to be done, and the future release of this indie rut we’ve been stuck in for way too long.

Five tracks of bombastic anthemic stadium rock choruses that bound to be a big summer hit, blaring out of cars everywhere. Just in time for summer, Dallas is bringing back glammy, hooky pop metal. If the mega-overdubbed choruses of Def Leppard’s Hysteria still do it for ya, you’re gonna dig this dude. Bryan Dallas resurrects here the super-slick, catchy anthems of the late ’80s when a zillion Def Leppard clones emerged trying to cop Mutt Lange’s songwriting and production techniques.

On “Over The Edge” Bryan Dallas has nailed the ’80s commecial super-produced pop metal sound with incledible results. Considering he is the only responsible of the production duties, this young musician is more than a great promise for the Melodic Rock genre in years to come. He has the skills, not only behind the desk but also the ability to write catchy tunes.
Give it a listen, you’ll love this.
