Issa – “Crossfire” (2015)

Label: Frontiers Records

Review by Tony Cannella

The Norwegian queen of melodic hard rock is back with her 4th album. Issa Oversveen released her debut album “Sign of Angels” in 2010 and through her following albums and up to her latest release (“Crossfire”) she has continued to carve out a steady path in the world of melodic hard rock.

Like her previous releases Issa presents an album full of up-tempo, melody heavy melodic hard rock. I have always said that it is impossible to be angry or in a bad mood while listening to Issa’s music and “Crossfire is no different. The bouncy “Crossfire” gets us off to a high energy start that is heavy on the vocal harmonies that will stick in your head long after you’ve heard it for the first time. “New Horizon” is next and instantly became a huge favorite.

Moonland feat. Lenna Kuurmaa – “S/T” (2014)

Label: Frontiers Records

Review by Tony Cannella

Sadly, it gets harder and harder to find good melodic AOR music these days. Songs with catchy hooks and punchy choruses are scarce these days, but thankfully the fine folks over at Frontiers records have that covered and they’ve brought us a good one with Moon Land featuring Lenna Kuurmaa. Lenna Kuurmaa is an Estonian singer who some fans might know from the all female band Vanilla Ninja. With her new project, Moon Land she has joined forces with some talented Italian musicians to produce a 12-song, 52-minute slice of AOR heaven.

Lenna Kuurmaa has a soaring vocal style which fits like a glove with the music that is being played. Continue reading »

Italian label Frontiers Records  is synonymous of good quality for the hard rockers/AOR fans and it’s not the first time that Frontiers commits in discover and promote new and exciting bands. A blatant example is Sweden’s Adrenaline Rush  whose debut album was produced along with one of the best talent of this recent years, Erik Martensson from Eclipse and W.E.T.

Adrenaline Rush – “Adrenaline Rush” (2014)

Label: Frontiers Records

Review by Tony Cannella

From Sweden, Adrenaline Rush is a band with a sound that harkens back to the 80s. Not that it’s a bad thing, to the contrary it is always cool to hear a band that has an influence from the 80s, and as long as it’s done well – with power, conviction and integrity – than all the better. With their self-titled debut, Adrenaline Rush pretty much nails it.

Adrenaline Rush is an album that is sharply produced and comes fully loaded with a great sound and solid performances. Heavy guitar riffs abound, starting with the opening track “Black n’ Blue” and continuing on with the infectious video track “Change”. This one in particular is an instantly memorable song thanks to a catchy hook, a great guitar driven groove and an unforgettable chorus. Continue reading »

Heart – “Fanatic Live From Caesars Coliseum” (2014)

Label: Frontiers Records

Review by Tony Cannella

For me, Heart is one of those bands that it is easy to forget how many great songs they have. Everyone knows “Barracuda”, “Crazy on You”, “Straight On”, etc. etc. but the fact is, their catalogue is so much stronger that just the classics that get played on the radio. With their new live album “Fanatic Live…” the band shines a light on some of their lesser known songs in addition to the aforementioned classics. And oh yeah, there is Ann Wilson who continues to have one of the best voices in all of rock.

From the opening of “Fanatic” taken from their last studio album and then “Magazine’s” “Heartless” the band takes the listener on a rock and roll journey that spans their career. Continue reading »
