Hard to believe it’s nearly a decade since the last full length Dante Fox album! The guys (and gal) appeared in 2012 with a quality EP, so it’s nice to see them back now with a full 50 minute ops.
As expected, there is some quality melodic rock to be heard here. The band keep everything you loved about their sound from the first three albums and the EP, but give it a slightly more complex twist. I wouldn’t want to say progressive, as it doesn’t go that far, but you can hear the growth in the musical arrangements and the delivery of the tunes.
 
Delivering some sublime keyboards throughout the album is Eric Ragno, whose parts add a lot of texture and quality to some already fine songs.
 
This is the pure definition of British melodic rock. The opening anthem Young Hearts has to rate as one of the band’s best songs. Break These Chains has a kind of Dare influence to the mood; the ballad Broken Hearted Man has a great vocal melody and some fine piano parts mixed with Tim Manford’s quite wonderful mix of electric/acoustic guitars (plus the remix at the end of the album showcases the vocal even more so) and Love Affair is big almost symphonic ballad that impresses.

Very consistent, very enjoyable, even if it does take a bit of listening to get to know and work out the melodies and songs. Very produced too.

AOR Heaven Next Releases Announced: DANTE FOX & MISS BEHAVIOUR

Artist: 
 
Germany based label AOR HEAVEN will release the new album “Breathless” by DANTE FOX on August 26 and “Ghost Play”, the new album from Swedish Melodic Rock sensation MISS BEHAVIOUR on September 2.
 

Product: Miss Behaviour - Ghost Play
Release date: 02.09.2016
 
 
 
10 years after releasing their debut album Heart of Midwinter, Miss Behaviour is back with their 4th studio album Ghost Play. With Ghost Play the band is ready to take their career to the next level.
 
The breakthrough came with the album Last Woman Standing (2011). In spring 2011 Miss Behaviour competed in Swedish national radio with the song Till we meet again, making the premiere live performance with the current lineup in front of 400.000 radio listeners. Late 2011 the album Last Woman Standing won the Melodic.net ”Best AOR album of 2011” readers poll, and got fantastic reviews from magazines such as Classic Rock (UK), Sweden Rock Magazine (SE) and more. UK Magazine Classic Rock picked Cynthia as one of the best tracks in 2011, and featured the song on the compilation Classic Rock Buzz.
 
The band promoted Last Woman Standing with two successful tours in the UK, 2011 and 2012.
 
The follow up album to Last Woman Standing, entitled Double Agent was released in August 2014 on AOR Heaven. Once again the reviews were great - Classic Rock, Sweden Rock Magazine and Aftonbladet (SE) all praised - and this also earned them a slot on Stockholm Rocks Festival in November.
 
Ghost Play
Together with producer Patrik Magnusson (Crashdiet, Mick Mars among others), Miss Behaviour spent the entire 2015 writing and recording. Ghost Play is classic hard rock, with a great production and a great variety of songs. Everything is presented in a way that always been the essence of Miss Behaviour. Great melodies are in focus. This time it is presented, however, with a more powerful sound.
