The guitar sound hits you smack in the face, with it\'s dual guitar assault.
Breaking The Silence is a fast paced hard rocker, that quickly establishes Jekyll & Hyde\'s intentions. The production is worthy of any major label release, with sharp vocals and a mix that gives each player their share of the limelight.
Jekyll & Hyde\'s style is varied and original, but one could say that if there was to be a re-established Los Angeles hard rock/sleeze scene like the late 1980\'s, these guys would be leading the pack into the late 1990\'s.
Not bad considering that they are Scandinavian!
In Your Dreams is the first track to slow things down even a fraction, with some nice harmonies on an acoustic driven song.
These guys have a knack for sounding modern and very 90\'s, without sacrificing the essential ingredients of the past, that have lead us to shun \'modern rock\'.
Peace Child is another great assault on the senses. A grooving verse into a more traditional hard rocking chorus.
Blood On My Hands is another lowing of the pace, to shift to a moody acoustic backed mid paced ballad.
Other highlights include the infectious hard rock of Point Of No Return, and the big bluesy ballad Ten Years Gone.
To pickout best tracks is hard, as they are all strong well written and consistant.
I suggest you head towards the Showcase and have a listen to it yourself.
An album for rock fans who love the traditional hard rocking sound of LA\'s best, yet have being hanging out endlessly for a new band to carry the torch into the next era.
