HARDSHINE is a new Brazilian Melodic Hard Rock group initially started as a side project for guitarist Pedro Esteves and drummer Anderson
Alarca, both from the metal band Liar Symphony. When Pedro met singer Leandro Cacoilo (Soulspell) at a workshop in 2009, they decided to fully develop the venture focused in a genre quite different from their metallic main acts: eighties / nineties MHR, the music they grow up with.
"So Far And So Close" is Hardshine's debut to be distributed in Europe and USA soon.
During the vocal recordings, Leandro showed the basic tracks to bassist Bruno Ladislau (Andre Matos Band, ex- Angra) who
immediately joined the band and through his contacts is negociating
Hardshine's international deal.
"So Far And So Close" is a mature, traditional melodic hard rock album
with a modern edge and an European sound for the most part.
The songwriting is clearly early nineties structured and the
musicianship tight and solid, driven by melodic riffs and a potent
There's muscular yet sonically polished numbers on "Do You Believe", the
'80s US oriented title track "So Far and So Close" (reminds me Baton
Rouge) and the groovy "Pay Your Sins", but the rest of the material is
much more melodious.
As example, "Now And Forever" sounds like nineties Alien, the ballad "Hard Way" brings to mind Pete Sandberg solo works, and the Scandi-like
melodic rocker "Don't Leave Me Now" is adorned with very nice keyboards
in the background.
Same with "If You Wanna Fly", the other US-styled tune here impregnated
by some Tyketto via acoustic guitars, pianos, a toneful solo and soaring
Talking about Leandro Cacoilo, his singing is one of the highest values on this recording. The guy owns an
educated, accent-free register warm when needed and dynamic on the
uptempo numbers with some winks to Johnny Gioeli.
Apart from the solid and well arranged songs featured in "So Far And So
Close", what I really liked about this novel band is the really good, professional sound obtained via a crisp production and mix, above the bar for an indie release.
If you dig the European (spiced with some American) melodic hard rock
from the beginning of the nineties, you will be pleasurably satisfied
with Hardshine's debut. Fans of second-era Alien, Pete Sandberg bands,
Hardline, Tyketto and alikes need to check this one.
