Frontiers Records is excited to announce all details related to LEVERAGE highly anticipated second album entitled “Blind Fire”.
Leverage is a Top Level Melodic Metal band which came out of nowhere in 2006, causing a stir with the release of their debut album “Tides”. Their blend of modern metal sound and old school melody-based songwriting earned rave reviews from the media and created a fanbase both in Finland and throughout the rock community in many countries.
One highlight of the ratings was melodicrock.com naming ‘Tides’ as the best Metal/Prog album of 2006, with 2 songs at the top of their heavy rock song listing. The band’s frontman Pekka Heino (also singer for Brother Firetribe) was also named the vocalist of the year!
“The warm welcome for ‘Tides’ was a pleasant surprise for us” says the band’s guitar player and main composer Tuomas Heikkinen. “We got good radio airplay in Finland, even climbed to the charts, all before our very first gig with our own material! Since then, we’ve played throughout Finland at clubs and festivals. Our music has been described as melodic metal or melodic heavy rock, which is fine by us”. Rock and Metal lovers will easily recognize influences from Rainbow, Magnum, Stratovarius and Masterplan with a light Progressive Metal edge.
“We wanted to plan the second album and the second step of our career carefully” continues Heikkinen “ As a big part of that, we were happy to sign with Frontiers. The songs were all written between the release of ‘Tides’ and entering the studio in July 07. Right from the first demos we knew that the second album will be a great step forward for Leverage. Here’s why: we’re tighter as a band, we know what our own style is and what we might be capable of, and we’re busting our butts to make as solid music as we ever can. We recorded and mixed (Torsti Spoof and Jari Mikkola) the album at Studio Audio, Jyväskylä, Finland between the beginning of July and halfway of September. It was mastered at Chartmakers, Helsinki”
“Blind Fire” will be released in Europe (minus Finland) on Frontiers Records on January 25th 2007. The first reactions to the material are enthusiastic and there are already plans for the band to play live outside their homeland.
Tracklisting of “Blind Fire” includes:

“All in all, we are really proud of ‘Blind Fire’” concludes Tuomas Heikkinen. “We worked hard to make the most of the relatively short time between ‘Tides’ and the new one, and we feel we accomplished what we set out to do”.
Frontiers will also release at the same time of the new album a new edition of “Tides” which will also include two exclusive bonus tracks: Superstition (live) and Twilight Symphony (live). Click here to enjoy a sample of “Superstition” from “Tides” !

With so much great sleazy glam rock coming out of Sweden it’s a pleasant change to find something like this coming from the US. I’m not sure where to start with this delicious sleazy offering from Californian band, Dirty Penny. If I compiled a list of my top CDs for 2007 this would be high at the top of that list.
Think Crashdiet leaning more towards the dirty side of sleaze.
Things start off in suitably suggestive style with the first track “Midnight Ride” and follow with tunes that are all perfect slabs of glam rock just the way it should be. At first I thought “Black n’ Blue” was a bit out of place on this, it’s almost jazz rock n’ roll but even that fits. “Vendetta” is probably the cream of the crop. Hell, all of these songs are gems. The disc closes with an acoustic version of Sleeze Disease. It’s a fantastic rendition and sounds like a completely different song to the heavier version.
Binge Daniels has a voice made for this type of music, the backing vocals are massive and the hooks huge.
If you are looking for lyrics that resemble complex rocket science, you won’t find it here. The lyrics are simple and sometimes cheesy, (“Take a Bite” being a classic example of this) but perfect for what this music is about. “Scream and Shout” may be the exception to the cliché lyrics that the rest of the tunes have; but this kind of rock is meant to be mindless, sexy and fun and Dirty Penny deliver exactly that.
Although nothing is perfect, I can’t find a filler or dud song on this. This is worth every Dirty Penny you have and simply a must have for sleaze rock lovers. Absolutely killer.
