Autodrive - St 1991 (Pomp Rock) Canada

Very good US band that played atmospheric MR/Aor, with hints of prog and pomp. Perhaps this is understandable since most of the band, at one stage or another have been involved with Marillion. I also believe this Long Island cd, is a re-issue of the album that originally came out in the 80's.For fans of Canuck bands such as Boulevard,Regatta, and a Refugee. John Wesley was also a one time member.

The Broken Homes - Wing and a Prayer 1990 (Power Rock/Glam) USA

I hear 80's flavored party rock all over the place, from THE CULT style to BRYAN ADAMS, to ROXETTE. Typical 80's rock that was produced by Andy Johns.(delbert)
Yes you're right. This album is mix of the 80's. Sometimes i think i'm hearing Quireboys or Georgia Satellites, but in some songs they change to a more pop/rock feeling like a more rocker INXS. Anyway, there are very good party rock songs here and you also can find it cheap on ebay or in a record store. I bought it (with shipping included) for less then 2 usd.(ppfinder2)

Baloney Ponyz - St 2003 (Hard Rock) USA

Good/Ok HardRock, Good Production and some cool Riffs. "Get Off" could easily remind you of Limp Biskit Catchy riff on "Earth Is Chokin'" that reminded me of "War Machine"(famous Kiss song). Some Southern touches that reminded me of Black Crowes.(juan carlos)

Rain - Stronger 2006 (Melodic Hard Rock) Norway/Germany

Rain was founded in 1997 by Lars Forseth and Sonny Crow and released their debut album back in 2002.
“Stronger” is a very solid album from start to end , heavier than the debut, with great melodies great vocals and production .
The music of the album is somenthin’ between ,.early Bon Jovi with Def Leppard meet Jaded Heart (IV era).
For the history …. Lars and Sonny met Bormann in the biggest live venue in Rhodes Island (Greece) , the Colorado Club, they saw and heard Michael Bormann and ask him to join the group.(melodic)

Collision - St 1992 (Hard Rock) USA

Info Here.

Shari Ulrich - Talk Around Town 1982 (AOR) USA

Shari Ulrich, an American, based in Canada, has a number of albums under her belt of which "Talk Around Town" is her 2nd. The first two tracks are quirky Aor that reminds me of John Paul Age and really seem quite out of place and strange choices for openers.But the real quality of Aor on offer really kicks in with the killer 3rd(and slightly pompous) track "Mad Money" and continues right on until the end of the album. Plenty of guests on this album with Mark Leonard, Robbie Buchanan (Maxus), Mike Baird (everyone!) and Nancy Nash (Agent /solo).

Haven - St. 2000 (Melodic Rock/AOR) USA

Talking about girls, Pamme(the singer) has a beautyful voice. She sings like an angel. If you like HEART check this out. They are brave enough to start the cd with four very good power ballads, But there are also some good hard rocker like Strange premonition, Hold on, Forgiveness and Show them, my favorite song togheter with Can u hear us. This is an 8 out of ten in my book.(Federico)

Pompei Nights - Midnight Mistress 2011 "Single" (Hard Rock Sleazy) Sweden


Sweden continues to be the hard rock capital of the world, and the latest upstarts driving that point home are Pompei Nights. Their full-length debut is due later this year on Street Symphonies Records, but until that time they have released a two song single to give listeners a taste of what is to come.
With Crashdiet guitarist Martin Sweet handling production details the young guys of Pompei Nights have a nice clean and professional sound. However these guys aren't Crashdiet clones -- there are enough of those out there -- instead they sound a lot like Australia's Hansel. Minus the tongue-in-cheek looks and silly outfits that turned some people off Hansel, Pompei Nights appear to be taking themselves seriously all the while retaining those catchy-as-hell choruses. It is the type of 'big' sound that Crazy Lixx is finding success with, keeping things memorable without resorting to gimmicks or outrageousness. The two songs here are interchangeable, but both are great slabs of glam influenced rock.
This single release may just be a teaser until their full-length debut comes along, but what a way to introduce a band! If Pompei Nights can write ten songs that sound like these two they will be exactly what fans of fun glam and melodic rock will be looking for -- not to mention one of the hottest bands in Sweden.

Falcons - Dangerous Life 1994 (AOR/Indie) Canada



7 Hours Later - St. 2003 (Hard Rock) USA

Link Here!
Modern hard rock with a twist in the tradition of bands like Bon Jovi, Collective Soul & Matchbox Twenty, Seven Hours Later are the real deal. Former Tainted Angel guitarist & AMF recording artist, Lynn Edward Glezen has put together a great line-up of musicians to bring this album to life. Featuring eleven well composed, melodic rock songs that truly smoke!! “It’s About Time” is an album to span the decades past with the present day mixed in for good measure!! Las Vegas-based 7 Hours Later is the brainchild of Glezen and features vocalist and bassist Rusty Wilmot as front man and Dana Grubbs on drums. Stepping in as co-producer and guest drummer on three songs is none other than Mr. Robert Sweet of STRYPER!! Jamie Rowe of Guardian and AdrianGale, has stepped in to lend a hand on lead vocals on two songs and is featured on some background vocals as well. This one is a must!!
