”Bleed For Passion” is the new album from Faithsedge, the band comprising of former Dokken guitarist Alex De Rosso, Timothy Gaines (formerly of Stryper) on bass, drummer Matt Starr (Ace Frehley/Mr Big) and vocalist Giancarlo Floridia. Produced, mixed and mastered by De Rosso, the album is metallic, melodic and one that you can leave on repeat and just keep listening.
The powerful vocals of Floridia are nicely complemented by the guitars and a rhythm section that most bands would kill for. Oh, and can I just mention again the guitars, I feel I should as it is these that are the driving force here.
“Back From This”, “Acceptance”, “Reflecting A Voice”, “I’ve Changed” and “Through The Scars” are the tracks I would suggest heading straight to. “I Know I Need To Let You Go” is the albums ballad and very good it is too, however, the overall winner here for me is “Angelic”.
Fans of bands like Skid Row, Megadeth, Mr Big, Dokken and Stryper will all find something to get their teeth into here on “Bleed For Passion” and if Faithsedge is a band you haven’t heard before, then I can thoroughly recommend having a listen. ****
