Half a decade after The Roaring Of Dreams, the American melodic rock duo are back in business with third album Pride Of Lions.
Pride Of Lions: Immortal
More than just melodic hard rock pussycats.
The liaison between Jim Peterik and Toby Hitchcock has become a little less prolific, though Immortal proves that the remarkable chemistry between the ex-Survivor guitarist/songwriter and his considerably younger apprentice (now an acclaimed solo artist in his own right) remains undiminished.
Revelling in his reputation as a master tunesmith, Peterik provides exquisite material for Hitchcock’s four-octave vocal range. Highlights include album single Delusional, a dreams-can-come-true slice of blue collar rock, heart-rending power ballads Sending My Love and Everything That Money Can’t Buy, and Vital Signs, a surging little beaut conceived yet unfinished as the title cut of Survivor’s 1984 masterpiece of the same name.
This wonderful album could provide their breakthrough.
