|The Order - 1986 (2012)] [80s Hard Rock] |
Hailing from Switzerland, THE ORDER have already three albums in their history book.
With the title of their just released fourth album the band gives you a clear idea of what their music is all about; "1986". If you didn't catch it yet, take a look at the CD cover...
The Order plays classic Eighties American Melodic Hard Rock with enthusiasm and no excuses. "1986" is a time travel back into the great '80s featuring straigh forward melodies and focus is on strong vocals and kickin' up-tempo tracks.
Gianni Pontillo is the frontman and singer and his voice got the right rasp and tone for the genre. Bruno Spring on guitar is riffing and hooking with a potent valvular sound, while the rhythm section is solid and smashing, specially hard hitting drummer Mauro Casciero.
All members have been playing in various bands since the nineties and they glue truly well.
The great intro track "Power Of Love" is pointing the direction for the rest of the album. The true love to rock music from the '80s is overwhelming for these guys and the strong melodies with a tight production is really a blessing to listen to here.
The well balanced songs are juicy, bloody, fat and spicy barbecued pieces of hard rock meat to put on the hot grill this summer.
"Long Live Rock 'n' Roll" is a catchy tune to play air guitar to and with the easy to learn chorus makes up a song that I like. Not cheesy at all... just rocks hard.
In the Van Halen inspired track "Generation White Line" Gianni really sounds in a voice tune just like former Van Halen singer Mr. Sammy Hagar.
They go pretty heavy on "Lonely Nights" reminding me Riot, while follower "Fire It Up" is extremely melodic sporting a massive and catchy chorus.
Even a ballad can be found here in "A Kiss Under The Rain", solidly structured and performed. It's that kind of metal ballad that has real power, in the vein of Baton Rouge. Killer tune.
"1986" resurrects Classic Eighties Hard Rock with style, power and quality.
If you like good straight forward, energetic hard rock music as used to be in golden decade, with great sharp guitars and vocals in top class then I am sure The Order is band you will curse yourself that you missed out on earlier.
These guys are truly professional, their musicianship excellent and they know how to write a killer song, trust me. Production is excellent for this kind of music, tight & sharp, and polished at the same time.
The Order is still quite unknown, but with this mega strong album in their back these Swiss gentlemen do really deserve to make it to the bigger scenes and public.
