Road To Hell
(Frontiers Records - 2018)
Joe Lynn Turner doesn't need any introduction, for decades he's active and well-known in the hard rock community. Sunstorm was a project initiated by JLT and Frontiers' boss Serafino Perugino and Road To Hell is the 5th album. The self-titled debut saw the light of day in 2006.
A balladesque tune is My Eyes On You, but if you expect a cheesy ballad, then you'll be disappointed. Heavy riffs and keyboard build the playground for the emotional vocals of JLT. For Everywhere they slow down and the vocals are only accompanied by keyboard - at least for awhile -, later it becomes a slightly bombastic ballad. An up-tempo rocker is Resurrection which shows that JLT can still rock!
One of my faves is Blind The Sky, a guitar-driven rocker with great vocals. Excellent. Another one is Resurrection. Actually you can pick any two songs to get an idea about the new Sunstorm album! There is no filler!
Highly recommended to all fans of AOR and hard rock!
Emotional Fire is the 3rd album of Joe Lynn Turner's Sunstorm, but it's different. This time Joe Lynn Turner remembered his past and choose to cover songs where he did backing vocals for other artists - among them Michael Bolton and Cher. Additionally there are songs written by Soren Kronkvist (Crash The System, Issa), Tom and James Martin (Vega, Sunstorm, Khymera) and Daniel Palmqvist.
