The Reece in question is, of course, David Reece, who is probably still best known for his brief tenure in Accept after the departure of Udo Dirkschneider. He only sang on one album, "Eat The Heat", but has kept busy since then, lending his talents to the likes of Bangalore Choir, Lillian Axe and Gypsy Rose.
This, however, is his first ever solo album, and one that sprang from an encounter with uber producer Michael Voss. It sees him joining forces, in fine small world fashion, with former U.D.O. guitarist Andy Susemihl and ex Holy Moses bassist Jochen Funders on an excellent album of melodic hard rock. And that's very definitely rock, more than metal. For sure, there are plenty of meaty riffs and piercing solos, but it's always rooted in melody.
Reece is in good voice throughout and anyone who has enjoyed his earlier work will find a lot to enjoy in tracks like 'Before I Die', 'Fantasy Man' and 'I'll Remember You'.Buy at Amazon
