Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 11 September 2009
German guitarist and producer Michael Voss likes to keep himself busy. When not twiddling the knobs for others, he's resurrected his own band, Mad Max, and found time to craft a follow-up to the well received "Voices Of Rock" album.

And he's aimed even higher this time, with an outstanding array of vocal talent including ex Black Sabbath man Tony Martin, former Rainbow / Deep Purple singer Joe Lynn Turner and the every busy Rob Rock, topping the bill.

Tony Martin kicks things off with the powerful, heavy riffing 'Into The Light', and it's by far the best thing he's put his name to in years, showcasing his still fabulous voice. Things get a bit more melodic with ex Vengeance man Bert Heerink before Joe Lynn Turner turns up on an outstanding 80s style AOR tune called 'Tonight'. It's a real highlight and would have been a massive US hit two decades ago.

My favourite, however, is 'Rock Me', with former Rough Cutt / Quiet Riot singer, Paul Shortino. It's an epic, melodic rock pounder, the kind of tune I grew up on, replete with immense chorus. There aren't any real clunkers, although the ballads don't match up to the rockers. However, the other gem is Mitch Malloys turn on 'Lay You Down To Rest', a sleek beast of a tune. The biggest surprise, though, comes from ex Accept vocalist David Reece, whose charms have previously passed me by. Here, however, his bluesy take on 'Dirty Games' is a real head turner.

A truly excellent album, that all melodic rockers should be snapping up.
