Hmmm…no comments on this one…shame because this is quite decent 80s flavoured hard rock with some good guitar riffing. I really hate comparing bands so I won’t….considering the cost on Ebay it is well worth tracking down ….

————————————————————————————————–

The guitars are the definite highlight of this album, the riffs are outstanding and some of the hooks are BIG, though in fairness the album does fall flat in a few places and those looking for originality might not be as impressed. I think the male vocals are stronger than some have indicated for this band, though the dudes range is fairly limited. Check out the first track “Tricky,” an excellent up-tempo commercial MHR song, and the opening to “Book Of Shadows” is right out of the “Dio- Holy Diver” playbook (very cool)…..The online price, unfortunately, isn’t so cheap anymore but it is a nice addition to the collection if you can get it for under $30 IMO……Jeff.

the girl who sang the very nice ballad “Alison” is quite good (Noomi Stragefors )…and now about the songs,the second half of the album is the one that brings the bands best shots starting with “Alison” and followed by “Coldblooded Lover”(nice song too),”Sleepwalking”,”Born Yesterday” & “In The Heat Of The Night”(if we are talking about AOR then these tracks are the closest to it)…”Tricky”,”Blue Collar Proud” & “Hypnotized” are the “rocky” ones…90/100

VAGH is here to make you remember the 80s. The sign is definitely catchy hooks. We love the sound of roaring drums, screaming guitars and slick keyboards, all in a mix with a lot of choruses to sing along with. AOR with heavy metal guitars !!!

Apreciable debut de esta nueva formación sueca liderada por el guitarrista y compositor Robin Vagh y secundada por el vocalista ex-Majestic Jonas Blum. Vagh practican un hard rock melódico con una orientación evidentemente ochentera deudora de bandas europeas de rock melódico como Europe o Treat y añadiendo unas pequeñas gotas de metal clásico de los 80.Tiene indudable mérito atreverse con un estilo en clara decadencia comercial desde hace bastante años y que en la actualidad no arrastra demasiados fans pero que seguramente algunos de vosotros apreciareis. La razón principal es que “Sands Of Time” aglutina suficientes argumentos para echarle un vistazo.
Canciones pegadizas, bien elaboradas con gusto y clase y acomodadas en una notable producción, sobre todo si se tiene en cuenta que es su primer
lanzamiento. El power- pop de “Tricky”, que abre el álbum, se te introduce rápidamente en la cabeza y poco a poco van cayendo los restantes 9 cortes a cada cual más pegadizo. “Book Of Shadows” tiene una base eminentemente metálica a lo Sabbath/ Dio aunque los matices la acaban orientando hacia el rock melódico. “Sands Of Time” es una de mis favoritas, rockera con un estribillo muy pegadizo (una virtud casi permanente en la mayoría de los temas), huyendo de la influencia europea y acercándose al AOR yankee.
El medio tiempo “Alison” introduce un cierto aire a lo Heart, debido principalmente al toque femenino que le imprime la vocalista Noomi Stragefors que interpreta integramente el tema. “Coldblooded” o “Born Yesterday” con una preciosa melodía de guitarra también consiguen enganchar a la primera escucha. Sin duda alguna, la aportación del teclado en el álbum es decisiva y necesaria, relegando a la guitarra a un segundo plano en gran parte de los temas y dotando a los temas de una mayor musicalidad.
De todas formas personalmente echo en falta algo más de potencia en algunas de las composiciones de la banda (aunque esto es gusto personal) y en el plano técnico algo más de intensidad en los solos, que en ocasiones se quedan a medio camino, pero nada que objetar a las melodías de guitarra que están realmente bien. Por lo demás, “Sands Of Time” dejará satisfechos a los amantes del rock melódico de toda la vida y apunta en letras grandes a Vagh como una de las bandas que más tiene que decir en este estilo.
