The Melodic Hard Rock sextet from Finland FREE SPIRIT have ready their second album 'All The Shades Of Darkened Light' to be released world wide next February 28th.
"Hysteria" (an original composition, not a Def Leppard cover) and "Living Tatoo" are the just presented advanced singles from this new recording that promise to be even better than their melodious first effort.
Indeed, their debut from 2009 Pale Sister Of Light gained them a high praise as 'the new Brother Firetribe', a majestic and soaring collection of songs in the best Scandinavian melodic tradition.
But if these songs were great, wait to listen "Hysteria" and "Living Tatoo". Free Spirit now sounds even more anthemic, infectious and biggerrr!
Vocalist Sami Alho sings up a storm on these new songs, and given the attention to the vocals overall, the choruses are to die for, while the dual guitar work of Vesa Yli-Mäenpää and Marko Haapamäki is simply awesome.
"Hysteria" is receiving a lot of airplay in Scandinavia, and it's featured at the end titles of the Finnish movie 'Anselmi, Nuori Ihmissusi' (also included on the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack of the film).
Judging the quality of the advanced singles, the new Free Spirit album easily could be amongst the best Melodic Hard Rock releases of the year. Can't wait...
If you missed the already terrific debut, you have it here as well in its entirety.
