Album: The Road To Hell
Label: Frontiers Music srl
Genre: Hard Rock, Melodic Rock
Release Date: June 8, 2018
If you are ready to take a trip back into authentic melodic hard rock, look no further than Sunstorm‘s latest release ‘The Road To Hell’. An authentic melodic hard rock album featuring Joe Lynn Turner on vocals with insane mastering from Hardline’s Alessandro Del Vecchio and added guitar wizardry from DGM’s Simone Mularoni.
This is a lineup of musicians who can completely wrap you around their little finger. With the mixture of JLT‘s raspy melodic vocal tones, keyboards that blend through each track with the feel of an organ or traditional keys, wailing guitar riffs and intense tempos coming from the drums and the occasional heavy throbbing bass riffs, ‘The Road To Hell’ takes listeners through a nostalgic rollercoaster.
‘The Road To Hell’ is littered with one great track after another. Such great technical ability in each of these musicians shines through allowing the listener to sit back and digest the music as it unfolds before them. Thoughtful writing from the instrumental music to the lyrics delivers a solid release that was clearly not rushed and deserving of a public release.
The album has a great push and pull of fast tempo tracks and then slower tempo ballads that pull the listener back and forth in an emotional tug of war. As the album starts out with the first track “Only The Good Will Survive” on an upbeat tempo with tons of great organ sounding keys, the listeners will instantly get a taste of the rest of the album to come. The organization of the running order of the tracks will immediately suck you in and keep your attention.
One of my favorite tracks on this album is “My Eyes On You”. It gave me this feel of old school Survivor that whipped me back to the early 80’s. Joe Lynn Turner‘s vocals were truly channeling Jimi Jamison circa ‘Vital Signs’ (1984) on this track. It was really cool to hear that because of how much I really enjoyed that era of the band and to hear that in his own vocals was unique, giving me an instant love of this track.
My impression of ‘The Road To Hell’; it was written for fans of true melodic rock. It’s singable, melodic and will have the fans wanting to hear more when it ends. This album is definitely one for the music lover. I don’t think you can go wrong with adding this one to your collection! So go grab your copy today! It’s available now in CD and LP (Gatefold).
