Profile 1989 was the best year ever for the Melodic Rock / AOR genre. The most precious records appeared at that time and unfortunately many bands without a major label support promoting their releases get sunken into oblivion. One of these was Swiss ULTRANITE only album “I Want My Own Planet”.

All members from Ultranite worked previously in central Europe on different bands and writing songs for others, as Andy Boulton’s Tokyo Blade or Andy Marc. The type of Melodic Rock crafted by Ultranite has many points in common with the Scandinavian scene, especially in the AOR keyboard infusions into the music.

We have some great, melodic fist-pumping anthems like “Hot As The Summer”, “Thank You” and ” Long Live The Nite” (featuring Krokus’ Marc Storace guesting on vocals) akin Zinatra, Aidean or Fate. There’s diversity as well, as on the little Hi-Tech “Little Angel” recalling Germans Craaft, and nice Swedish power ballads in “Streets Of Rome” and “Lost For Ever”.

Very rare and hard to find on CD that worth your attention!!!
