melodic hard rock

Pamela Moore - Behind the Veil

Pamela Moore is best known to the metal crowd as Sister Mary due to her involvement in Queensryche’s monumental concept album “Operation: Mindcrime”, as the eponymous character. Since, but also before that she has a rather unspectacular solo career and did some guest performances.

Michael Schenker Fest - Resurrection

Michael Schenker, guitarist extraordinaire and former wildman, has seemingly mellowed and sobered down in the past few years and was even able to build up from the ruins of his latest exit from UFO, with the Temple Of Rock vehicle, which did release a number of pretty solid albums, with Doogie White (ex-Rainbow, etc.) at the vocal helm.

Find Me - Dark Angel

Find Me is one of those bizarre Frankenstein experiments that happen in Frontiers offices, somewhere in the south of Italy, where famous musicians are combined with others to create new projects, but their debut, “Wings Of Love” really silenced all critics by being a fine melodic rock release, that effortlessly combined the best aspects of pompous AOR with soft rock, in a delicious concoction…

Shy - Unfinished Business

I was really thrilled when I listened to “Unfinished Business” for the first time back in 2002 and writing a review was the least I could do for this magnificent album. Of course, I made a mistake back then… I should have rated the album with half a point more but I wanted time to tell whether my judgment was right or if I was just overexcited because I hadn’t heard from the band for over ten years plus, they had been and still are one of my beloved hard rock bands.

Shy - Unfinished Business

Who would believe that Shy would be back again after so many years with the original singer, Tony Mills, in the band again? Who said that hard rock music is not on the rise again? Only a fool can believe such a thing, especially after listening to Shy’s new comeback album! And for those who don’t know Shy, it’s better to stop dealing with rock/hard rock music. I can only say they are missing an important part of hard rock music and that’s a pity!
