Escape Music www.escape-music.com
Norwegian band formed from the ashes of Winter Parade and they feature Tore Meli (guitars/keys), ‘PB’ Riise (bass/keys) and Coldspell’s drummer Perra Johnson, who has also recently appeared on the Love Under Fire album. The man at the mic stand is Shy vocalist Lee Small, who is building a reputation for himself in melodic hard rock circles (check out his solo album ‘Jamaica Inn’ also available on Escape).
The keyboards and guitars on ‘Don’t Drive Me Home Tonight’ are simply immense. One for a highway with the top down in the summer in the US (it doesn’t seem to sound so romantic if you say for example Hanley). ‘Wolf’s Liar’ again builds on keys and guitar, whilst the ballad ‘The Vesper Bell’ rounds the album off in style. This song adds a little epic sound to the proceedings and features the guitar solo of the album.
Lee Small is an undoubted star of the album and sounds uncannily Glenn Hughes circa the Hughes-Thrall album.
‘Jack Of Diamonds’ and ‘Wolf’s Liar’ can sound a little AOR by numbers, although they are still stronger songs than found on some other recent melodic rock releases.
For high quality tunes that are keyboard led look no further as Snowfall will delight you. Be even better if this band could get onto the stage as live I feel they would delight fans of FM, Firehouse and Giant. ****
