Confession time: When I saw that Burning Rain’s new record had landed in my mail-box, I wasn’t the least intrigued. Why? Well, this band (project?) have never impressed my the least. The fact that their style of music usually is right up my alley – melodic Hard Rock with big influences by bands such as Whitesnake, Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin mixed with a more 80’s-laden sound – made it even more clear that this band just wasn’t for me. Their self-titled debut from 1999, Pleasure To Burn (2000) and Epic Obsession (2013) were to my ears both bland and underwhelming where no song really stuck out and everything sounded like every other band in that genre – Burning Rain never lasted at all with me, despite containing great musicians and a damn fine vocalist in Keith St John (Kingdom Come, Montrose, Lynch Mob, Quiet Riot among others) who worked in the school of David Coverdale.
