We introduce a new Brazilian band in 2016 called Adellaide. They've just released a three track EP which sounds pretty good to these ears. From Sao Paulo, Adellaide have all the ingredients which makes for a great AOR band, without sounding like the cookie-cutter releases coming out of Europe these days. Adellaide are full on with pompous keyboards and razor sharp guitar work, just the way many of the GDM regulars like it!

The Songs
Just the three songs here, opening with the glorious 'Save Your Love', this band have got it on a string. Daniel Vargas has a voice tailor made for our favourite sub-genre of rock, and everything just clicks into place. 'Heroes' is slightly more restrained at the start, though you can tell this song could take off at any minute (like the warplane on the album cover), and it surely does. Another terrific dose of melodic hard rock/AOR. The third track 'Edge Of Feelings' has all the makings of a power ballad. Leading with some intricate piano work, the song comes alive soon after, the urgent rhythm section delivering the power of a turbo engine which allows guitarist Ale Nammur to fly over the top with the precision of a guided missile.

In Summary
This short EP has got me wanting more from this great new band. According to the band's FB page, a full length CD is in the works and is scheduled for a 2017 release courtesy of Lions Pride Music. Joining the band recently is new keyboardist Leandro Freitas, who was previously with Horyzon, another Brazilian band on the Lions Pride roster. The new Adellaide album should be on everyone's 2017 watch-list. In the meantime, track this EP down and take a trip to Adellaide!
