“Desire And Truth” is the follow-up to 2006’s “Demented Honour”, which received rave reviews globally and cemented Erol Sora’s reputation now as a lead vocalist as well as guitarist and ended up in melodicrock.com‘s Top 10 New Artists of that year.
To match the success of his debut album, the ex-John Lawton Band guitarist took his time to work on the songs for his sophomore record. His goal was to recapture the spirit and sound of great British bands from the late 70s/early 80s such as MSG, Whitesnake, Rainbow, UFO and Gary Moore. “Desire And Truth” is heavier and more guitar oriented than the debut, yet still very melodic in terms of vocals and songwriting. The album includes some of Erol’s finest work to date like the in-your-face opener “Taste of Rock & Roll”, a heavy bluesy Whitesnake influenced song. The aptly titled “The Storm Has Just Begun” is equally rocking and features a stunning guitar solo. The Schenker influenced Melodic rocker “Diamonds In The Wind” and the tongue-in-cheek “Rock & Roll Dog” are more examples of Erol’s diverse songwriting skills and influences. “When You’re Gone” a heartfelt ballad, and the haunting “When You Gonna Love Me” deliver the quieter moments of this fascinating new album by a fabulous guitarist and vocalist.
“Desire And Truth”, release date Feb 26th 2010, has already received some great feedback around the world, including an 86/100 rating in the Feb issue of the well respected Japanese Burrn! Magazine.
