RATING:


Background
From Sweden, these guys hit the G spot with an album abundant in melody and the right amount of heaviness. Stormburst are in the dead-center of the Goldilocks zone; not too light not too heavy, just right as the three bears found out. Signed to AOR Heaven, Stormburst are Georg Siegl's best release for ages, and they have a formula that will have GDM listeners and AOR fans all over the globe seeking them out. The familiar name in the band is well known to the GD audience, and that is guitarist Thomas Hansson, previously with GDM favourites Coastline who were popular a decade or more ago. Stormburst are a different entity altogether though, muscular melodic rock delivered with power, melody and finesse, which will please followers of both pure AOR and those who like a harder edge.

There are many highlights among the fourteen tracks. The opener 'Show Me The Way' is on YouTube (see below), and immediately let's listeners in on their secret now made public. 'Say You Will', 'Show Me A Sign'All I Want Is You' and the rather glorious 'Restless Hearts' all veer on the super-melodic side. 'Never Too Late' sounds all flash and shiny, and is vastly different to the raw demo version which Thomas let me have a listen to back in 2014. There was just the single ballad 'Touched By Love', complete with a mournful violin, and sounding like something Fair Warning might write. Overall for me, this makes 'Raised On Rock' an album I want to listen to all day. Great vocals, superb guitars, frilly keyboards and a solid back end. What more can you ask for? Get in like flynn!
