Silver Step Child

Silver Step Child
(Massacre Records - 2000)

The British trio is more or last the band Balance Of Power who just toured with Axxis and Pink Cream 69. For that tour BoP had to find a new bassist and Tony Ritchie jumped in. It worked pretty good and Richie and drummer Lionel Hicks realized their project. USM was in their minds for quite a while, but now their time was coming.... Silver Step Child offerers the melodic songs of BoP and a certain heavyness. The trio offers melodic metal / hard rock in the tradition of bands like Giant or White Lion. This classification just shows you the genre they belong to, but they doesn't sound like that bands!
Personally one of my favourite releases of this genre in the new millennium so far, beside Alliance's Missing Pieces!
