Let's hope there are many more chapters to come from this all-star group. Level 10 plays traditional hard rock and heavy metal in the vein of Dio/Tony Martin era Black Sabbath, Whitesnake and Blue Murder. The band is led by prophetic powerhouse Russell Allen (Symphony X, Adrenaline Mob) and features Mat Sinner and Randy Black (Primal Fear), Roland Grapow (Masterplan, ex-Helloween) and Alessandro Del Vecchio (Hardline). The pace is mid-tempo with stirring soulful vocals and a heavier sound that leaves it just south of AOR renderings. Strong, powerful and crafted with emphasis on great songs and arrangements. The Frontiers label wins again.
