Product Description

Twenty years ago, David Reece returned to Los Angeles after a successful stint with Accept. He was looking for a group of musicians that he felt shared his vision of what he wanted in a band, driven on writing an album s worth of material and to obtain the elusive major label deal . Not long after his arrival, Bangalore Choir was formed. After a short time paying dues on the Sunset Strip, they were signed to Giant Records and On Target was recorded. Produced by Max Norman and James Jimbo Barton, the album was the essence of what was selling big at the time. With contributions from Jon Bon Jovi, Aldo Nova and Steve Plunkett (Autograph), and major label backing, the album should have done well. But alas, the Seattle invasion worked its way down the Coast and by the end of 1992, the masses were looking for a fresh, raw sound that the big hair bands of the mid to late eighties were not delivering. After an 18 year hiatus, David Reece reached out to original Bangalore Choir members Curtis Mitchell and Danny Greenberg to test the waters on the possibility of recording some new music and playing some live dates. After a few brief phone conversations between the States and Germany, the three founding members were all were on board and Cadence (AOR Heaven, 2010) was the byproduct of the reunion. David had been working with guitar phenomena Andy Susemihl (U.D.O.), and he was officially welcomed into the band. Andy s talents are endless and as a result, he not only played guitar tracks along with Curtis, but mixed and produced Cadence as well Metaphor features some collaborative efforts as well. David turned to old friends Rikard Quist, who collaborated on the tracks Silhouettes on the Shade and Scandinavian Rose on the new release and also worked with lyricist Jon Wilde, with whom David had worked with on his Reece-Kronlund release.

By Mr. H TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 19 May 2012
Format: Audio CD
No-one was more surprised than me when "Cadence", the comeback album by Bangalore Choir ended up in my Top 10 of 2010. Since then vocalist David Reece has put out an album with Gypsy Rose bloke Martin Kronlund, but has returned to Bangalore Choir for another crack.

Fellow original Bangalore Choir members Curtis Mitchell and Danny Greenberg are still on board alongside guitarist Andy Susemihl (ex U.D.O.), but does see the arrival of a new drummer in the shape of Rene Letters. And it's a good album. Not as instant as "Cadence", but it's still chock full of quality, powerful melodic rock.

Mr Reece is still in fine voice, and the guitar work is of very high quality. And when the songs match the performance as they do on 'All The Damage Done', 'Don't Act Surprised' and 'Always Be My Angel', then it's a mighty fine romp indeed. Unfortunately, there are a few songs that don't work out with 'Scandinavian Rose' and 'Catch An Angel Fallin' the biggest offenders. I don't know, perhaps David Reece is spreading himself a bit thinly these days with this other projects.

That's not to say this isn't an enjoyable record. It is. I just don't see it ending up as one of my albums of the year, unlike its predecessor. But if you're looking for a fix of eighties melodic power rock, then this may be for you.
