Here's an interesting new project from Italian band Kings Of Broadway, who cross reference back to fellow Italians: melodic power metal band Secret Sphere. Is it coincidental that that band also has a brand new album due out shortly too, so there will be two projects from this branch to look out for. Guitarist Aldo Lonobile is the main guy here, bringing the project to life in 2011. He wanted to do a hard rock project away from the prog metal of Secret Sphere, and bought along a few friends for the ride. Drummer Cartasegna is also from Secret Sphere, while vocalist Tiziano 'Titian' Spigno also sings with Lucky Bastardz, and bassist Andreaone has also played with the band A Perfect Day, a band previously signed to Frontiers Records. In their own words, KOB operated in the shadows before signing a deal with German label Pride And Joy at the start of 2017.. and here we are.

The Songs
I like the aggression on display on 'Kings Of Broadway'. It's a pumping form of hard rock which should appease many GDM'ers. There's no keyboards, a dual carriage-way of guitars from Lonobile and Messeri. It's usually the first couple of tracks which sets the tone for the album's appeal, and that's certainly the case on 'First Day Of My Life' and the first single 'Beserk', which also got a video too (check below). Other tracks to stand out for me include the melodic 'Never Enough', the robust 'Dancing On The Edge Of Time' and the groove-laden power pack of 'Hit The Ground'. The band chuck in a cover version of One Republic's 'Counting Stars' to wrap things up, which provides an interesting twist.

In Summary
'Kings Of Broadway' was recorded by Tancredi Barbuscia at GreenRiver Studio, while the vocal production was handled by Michele Luppi at MiLu's RockLab II and Roberto Priori at PriStudio. Release date for this album is tomorrow: Friday 28th April 2017. Check it out.
