VEGA --- ONLY HUMAN
Another hard rock gem from the unrelenting Frontiers records label. This time it is VEGA, a Melodic hard rock band hailing from the UK. "Only Human" is the bands 5th studio album. The most immediate impression is that VEGA is hands down one of the best sounding bands I've heard so far this year. Melodic hard rock, with a dash of modern aor, mixed with radio friendly vocals. This band, VEGA, is the best of all possible hard rock worlds. At times the vocals remind a little bit of the late great Ronnie James Dio.(Yes he's that good).Guitar shredding abounds but contained within a tasteful melodic approach. Check out the lead on "Mess You Made." This album rocks from start top finish. I can hear some serious DEF LEPPARD and maybe even a BON JOVI influence.Especially on "come Back Again". and " Standing Still"
