What kind of monster do you create when you take two of Italy’s most predominant power metal and progressive bands and put them together in one room? Hard Rock ala 80’s? Really? I didn’t see this one coming out from by rear view mirror at all, I mean Avenue of Allies always releases good bands in Melodic Rock/AOR but to have this interesting set of talent together in one project?
DOWNCOUNT have quite an interesting story about the beginning of the band back in 2007. Lead vocalist DOUG KENDALL started out as the host a very political radio show that had listeners around the globe. He asked a local metal band to come and play live on the radio show and instantly hit it off with the guitarist ERIC FLEMMING, finding that the two of them shared many of the same views on world politics
