Fury is a lost Canadian classic from 1994-ish. I really don't mind when some albums surface, as long as they have the goods. Fury definitely has the goods.
In fact this is a great, good fun, hard rocking throw back to the good old days of American stadium rock n roll.
The bio compares the band to Coney Hatch, Triumph, early Dokken and maybe Skid Row.
If the lead track is anything to go by, then that's dead on.
I'd also like to add comparisons to Tora Tora and Silent Rage.
Add to that Kick Axe, with the band's Larry Gillstrom co-producring the album.
And that is one of the great things about this album - the production.
Why on earth was this not released originally?
The production is major label and the backing vocals are simply sensational. Rich, thick and layered.
The guitar sound is heavy, crisp and clear and the lead vocals are dominating to say the least.
A great album for fans of fist pumping, speaker blowing, in your face, old school North American hard rock.
A special note for the backing vocalists - [including Paul Laine, Chrissy Steele (Headpins), Jim Vallance, George Criston (Kick Axe, Paradise), Dave Hopia (The Distance)] - they certainly make their presence known.
