Profile FRANCE is a San Diego based hard rock band formed in the late ’89 by Sammy Carini (Skinny, Fafners Lair). “Lay It On Me” is the only work from the band releasd in 1990 and produced by the band and Josquin DePres, offered us four killer tracks. Three are rockers with the fourth being one of my all-time favorite ballads ever……”Dangerous Waters”. If you like big guitars and drums that pound out the beat with every catchy chorus then this is the album for you. While the trio of rockers on this hair-metal indie are perfectly fine in their own right, it’s the power ballad “Dangerous Waters” that totally steals the show. Whoever wrote that song was definitely on their A-game that day, no doubt about it.

 Imagine hearing a cross between great party/glam bands like Rock Candy, Helix and having them play a few sets with early Bon Jovi. The band never came up with a full release and continue as a cover band. They changed lead singer, their name to  Scoundrel but also their sound into more metal paths released an album in 1995 titled “Tell Me If This Hurts”. If you haven’t scored this album for your collection, simply do it…
