Issa – Run With The Pack [2018]

Norwegian singer Issa Oversveen has returned with her brand new, fifth solo album “Run with the Pack”. The new release is a hard rock fans dream come true with huge vocals and soaring melodies! This time around, Issa partnered with Alessandro Del Vecchio to work on her new album and to mix things up, brought in the excellent Simone Mularoni of Italian progressive metal giants, DGM to play guitar. The line-up was rounded out by Andrea ToWer Torricini (Vision Divine) and Marco Di Salvia (Kee of Hearts) holding down the rhythm section for what is arguably Issa’s most fully realized musical offering yet!

The entire album is performed by a totally heavy rocking band, solid guitar riffs, flamboyant solos, thick bass lines (even distorted at parts), dynamic drum attack and AOR-ish keyboards. Subsequently, not only are we looking at a hard rocking album but also one with an 80s orientation. Most of the album moves from standard-tempo to mid-tempo AOR featuring three ballads in “Talk to your Heart”, “Bittersweet” and “Everything to me”. Still the more up-beat rockers of Issa’s tend to leave a lasting impression namely the opener “Am I Losing you” the video single “Come Back Again”, “How Long” and “Sacrifice Me” offers a special treat in the form of a duet with Deen Castronovo 9Revolution Saints, The Dead Daisies, ex-Journey).

The most significant improvement in comparison to the previous album is clearly the production. So, we are looking at a much thicker sound while the mixing process ensures that no instrument is left in the background. The rhythm section is finally up-front making the experience more intense and the album more enjoyable. Issa has indeed moved from melodic rock to heavier sound which makes for a fresh sounding fifth solo album.
