Company: Mighy Music
Release: 2017
Genre: Hard Rock

French hard rockers capturing the spirit of 80s melodic hard rock
COMMENTS:
Archange was established in 2013 with the intention of capturing the 80s melodic rock sound. The French act does a good job capturing that, creating smooth, driving rhythms with an upfront bass (hear "Machine Gun") within the pocket drums. It is formulaic, somewhat retreading in prior footsteps but is polished with enough precision to sound convincing. Highlight for me is the faster, punchier track "The Ride" with singer Dan Pallas' resemblance to Scorpions' Klaus Meine.
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
Cannon, Bonfire, Scorpions, Shakra
