Profile Red Sea was a one time project by vocalist Robin Kyle Basauri (Joshua,Die Happy), guitar shredder Chris Howell (Fear Not) along with Badlands bassist Greg Chaisson and drummer Jeff Martin. Their one and only album came out in 1994 via Rugged Records and produced by P.K. Mitchell. The album consist of very well done heavy, blues, rock music. What you basically get is a band that sounds very much like Badlands but also with lyrics dealing with Christian subjects. Howell may not be as technically proficient on the guitar as Jake E. Lee, but he definitely can get the job done. Basauri’s vocals are raw but can also be melodic. I have never heard of him before, but he reminded me of a cross between Ray Gillen and Steve Snyder from Arch Rival. If this disc was released today we would all say it was an awesome hard rock record. It is timeless. Sounds as good today as when i first heard it. Definitely worth checking out.
