Ferreira, Better Run, 2010
Despite the cover suggesting you’d indeed better stay away from this album, this is definitely one for al lovers of melodic hard rock. The quartet of Marco Ferreira (vocals, guitars and keys), Patrick Sebastian (guitars and backing vocals), Gus Monsanto (bas and backings) and Alex Ferreira (drums and backings) serve 10 songs with enough staying power to withstand the depicted horrors 😉
Yet don´t expect something new. This is quality melodic hard rock material though, with enough surprises to hold your attention during playback. It´s in the details. Like the double kick in the finals of opening track Secret Damned Society. Or the processed lead vocal in Set My Devil Free. And the variety between the tracks does not hurt either. I Want Out is a ferocious rocker and Knocking On My Door is a spine tingling ballad with a heartfelt lyric. So worth picking up!
