DIVAK by Soto
(Ear Music)

Jeff Scott Soto returns with the sophomore effort under the Soto moniker, 'Divak'. Just like it's predecessor, 'Inside The Vertigo', the musical direction is dark and heavy. While not as strong or hard hitting as their debut,  it still contains strong musical rhythms, hard guitar rips, and great vocals.  Jeff Scott Soto (vocals), Jorge Salan (guitar), BJ (keyboards, guitar), David Z (bass) and Edu Cominato (drums). Jeff Scott Soto, is a musical visionary always finding ways to take his musical vision to new heights and with this new album he has certainly done that. From the opening instrumental, "Divak" that draws you in, then segues into, "Weight Of The World" hits you senses like a sledgehammer! The lead off single, "Freakshow", is up next, a pulsating rocker that has a killer hook. Other highlights include, "Unblame", "Cyber Masquerade", the mid tempo, "In My Darkest Hour", "SuckerPunch". "Time"and "Misfired, are two great tracks as well. Jeff's vocals drips testosterone, hot and raw. Paired with Jorge Salan's powerhouse riffage, this is a recipe for pure rock bliss. 'Divak' is so refreshingly varied. It's chocked full of big riffs, memorable choruses that makes it a joy to listen to. This is an album by an amazing singer/songwriter who is not just a great rock singer, but a great singer, period. There is absolutely no question that Soto have definitely hit a home run right out of the ball park with 'Divak'.  - Highly Recommended
