Vescera
Beyond the Fight
Company: Pure Steel
Release: 2017
Genre: Traditional
Reviewer: Eric Compton
Published: 3/29/2017

Pure melodic US heavy metal in the vein of 80's Shrapnel
COMMENTS:
Fan favorite Mike Vescera (Obsession, ex-Loudness) has formed a new band with ex-Nitehawks musicians. Simply titled Vescera, the group release their debut album, 'Beyond the Fight', for Germany's Pure Steel label. It's a great home for this sort of melodic pure heavy metal. The guitar tone is similar to Axel Rudi Pell's playing style and I can't help but pinpoint 80's staples like Racer X, Project Driver and CJSS as comparisons. Highlight for me is 'In the Night' with its vocal harmonies and big hook. Probably the best thing Vescera has done in decades. 'Beyond the Fight' weighs in as a winner.
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
Racer X, Rob Rock, CJSS
