Faith Circus, Turn Up The Band, 2014
About time to do another Melodic Rock Records release! This time it is the latest Faith circus release Turn Up The Band. And as the label´s name already hints at, this is melodic rock. Plain and simple! This is all about catchy choruses carried by the pleasant vocals of Marc Ferrano, loud guitars and flashy solos from Marius Mörch and all is expertly held together by the bass of Christer Ottesen and the drums of Baard Nordvik. And as is mandatory in this style, all the guys sing backing vocals. Guesting is Tore Risa on keyboards.
The production is as big as it needs to be, with room for everything to be heard. And with the energy the guys put into their performances, the thing really comes kicking the speakers. Which is of course a good thing! Yes, some will say this is nothing new, but afficionados will still like this no mater what. This is done with style and conviction. The songs are memorable and have you tapping your feet or head along in seconds.
Another nice touch is that you get the previous album as a bonus, so you will have 23 songs instead of 10, for the same price. Awesome deal and the band deserve you checking it out. Great album to rock out to!
