I had such high hopes for this band. Let’s face it, three of the guys – guitarist Vivian Campbell (Def Leppard, Whitesnake, Riverdogs, Shadow King), bassist Jimmy Bain (Rainbow, Wild Horses) and drummer Vinny Appice (Black Sabbath, WW III) – didn’t only play on but also helped to write the classic Dio albums Holy Diver (1983), The Last In Line (1984) and Sacred Heart (1985) and they were joined by big voice Andrew Freeman (Devil’s Hand, Lynch Mob, Hurricane) so it wasn’t any wonder my expectations on this project’s/band’s debut album Heavy Crown (2016) shot through the roof. Unfortunately, that album didn’t live up to my sky-rocketing expectations. Maybe I had set them too high because it wasn’t a bad album, I was just disappointed because I had thought it would be a real earthshaker. But it wasn’t.
