RED MOON RISING by Perfect View
(Avenue Of Allies)

Italy's Perfect View returns with their sophomore release, 'Red Moon Rising'. Max Ordine (vocals), Francesco Cataldo (guitar, backing vocals), Pier Mazzini (keyboard, backing vocals), Frank Paulis (bass, backing vocals) and Luca Ferraresi (drums, backing vocals). The band combine the best elements of music giants like "Journey", "Toto" and "Styx" subsequently crafting an admirable collection of melodic rock tunes; each song has clearly defined personality while the performances support the compositions to the greatest extent. For that matter you can expect to find groove laden tempos, keyboard harmonies, piano melodies even guitar shredding, depending on the requirements of each track. Highlights: "By My Side",with Michele Luppi (Secret Sphere, Los Angeles, ex-Vision Divine) on background and harmony vocals. "Room 14", and "Slave to Empire", featuring Giacomo Gigantelli (Danger Zone) on background vocals. For the rock ballads lovers out there the band offer up, "I Will Remember". The band also serve up their take on  Toto's "Home of the Brave". This is a superb recording filled with very high energy songs that make you want to drive very fast! Not one moment on 'Red Moon Rising' is wasted. Your ears will smile with listening glee. And your brain will recall a time when all music was made to be remembered. Bottom line; this is a must-have melodic rock album any way you look at it. - Highly Recommended
