H.E.A.T – Into The Great Unknown [2017]

H.E.A.T return with their new album featuring lots of their trademark rocking intensity along with a stronger keyboard influence and a few interesting twists and turns. Produced by Tobias Lindell and featuring the return of guitarist Dave Dalone, Into The Great Unknown sounds absolutely stunning with a huge sound and lots of electronic soundscapes that bring life to these already big songs.

Despite the excellent production, a few of the songs do suffer from a lack of uniqueness and a slight “heard it all before” feeling but the energetic vocals of Erik Gronwall is what keeps things going. Highlights include the intense energy of opening rocker “Bastard Of Society” that sounds as good as anything these guys have done before, the eighties influenced synth rock vibe of “Redefined” that shows off the first of a few twists in their sound, the big melodic ballad “Eye Of The Storm” that has a great guitar solo and noticeable Danger Danger vibe to it, and the signature H.E.A.T. stylings of “Blind Leads The Blind” featuring a big guitar riff and energetic production that leads into a huge sing-a-long chorus.

The Japanese version includes the tongue in cheek bonus track of “FYI Miley” that boldly and brashly closes out a solid melodic rock offering. Despite a few too many generic euro rock tunes, Into The Great Unknown is still a solid album which unfortunately falls a little short of the quality delivered by their last two amazing albums.
