Out now on Frontiers
Burning Rain was always my favourite of Doug Aldrich‘s bands, with its high octane approach on both albums. After more than 10 years, Burning Rain is back with a brand new album.
Let me start off with the negative : it’s less intense than the first two. That doesn’t mean it’s a snoozefest like so many reunion albums turn out to be. It just lacks some of the mania of the older material.
And… that’s it as far as negatives are concerned. This is a great album with quite a big Zeppelin and Whitesnake influence. Doug’s killer guitar playing pervades every song and the band is tight as ever. The slightly more old school approach suits Keith St John’s voice very well.
No complaints about production either.
