More new talent and I can only say that is a good thing – this scene needs new blood to survive, but we need really great talent for any longer term benefits.
Looks like King Company is one of those bands. Yet another Scandinavian outfit, these lads from Finland deliver classic 70s hard rock with a heavy dose of Deep Purple and Rainbow with organ to match and the extreme Joe Lynn Turner like vocals from Pasi Rantanen.
This album rocks with a rhythm section ready to crush ears and a guitarist that knows his way around a fretboard.
The classic meets modern feel of this band is going to deliver them fans, no question.
The sonic blast of Shining and In Wheels Of No Return are bombastic hard rockers with killer hooks and Coming Back To Life is prime 1980s Rainbow.
There’s some vocal similarities to Mats Levin too – and his band Dogface.
Tracks like Wings Of Love and Holding On are hard, heavy and melodic enough for all rock fans to appreciate.
Dramatic, heavy throughout, commercial enough to contain some very good hooks and performances from these veterans of the Finnish scene that really blow the roof off when cranked.
A thoroughly fabulous debut and one for fans of classic rock and the likes of Heaven & Earth to get hold of.
