You see, to me it’s the biggest disappointment in 2013 so far. My former melodic metal heroes have developed in the totally wrong direction. Guys, please put the epicness and your darker/modern approach aside and bring back the great melodies and all the metal anthems you’ve written in the last seven years.
The name Kelly Keeling is pretty known in the Hard Rock/AOR world, yet sadly not as widespread as it should. Since his days fronting Baton Rouge in 1990 he has become synonymous with some of the best singers on the scene, like James Christian, Jeff Scott Soto, Jimi Jamison and countless others. No matter what band or recording his name is attached too you can bet that it is going to be a strong album, at least vocally. I have been a fan for a long time now, and can’t think of an album off the top of my head that he sang on that I wasn’t a pretty big fan of; from Baton Rouge to John Norum to King Kobra- his soulful voice has always entertained me.
