Finnish classic rock purveyors engage a pair of famous pipes for their first missive to the world.
It’s a bit of ironic, to have an outside singer perform on your debut single, but then – given it’s a showcase for an album titled "Chasing Rainbows" – roping in a former RAINBOW frontman turns irony into art.
The cut Graham Bonnet came in to deliver with his usual swagger is a fine slice of heavy blues-rock with a powerful groove that sees the band build tension reservedly yet resolutely, so there’s almost orchestral finesse in the rhythm section sway and guitar lines. More so, it’s infectious, if full of drama, which makes the familiar voice a nice addition to the song rather than its main feature.
A precious piece of an old-school value.
