Picture this!!! Holland and the first Dutch metal band, is the image that first comes to mind. If youre not familiar with Picture, they we’re the very first Dutch hard rock band with a “record deal”. They went on to record 7 albums and toured extensively through Europe with the likes of AC/DC, Saxon, Ted Nugent to name a few. They return 30 years later with “Old Dogs New Tricks” and trying to show a new sound but not forgetting their trademark sound.
The band clearly marked they’re path during the 80’s as so many bands did. The difference was as a progressive entity they manage to evolve with each offering adding a refreshing sound and building they’re own pattern for the way melodic hard rock should be played.
