My relationship with Gotthard’s music hasn’t been the same since their very talented singer Steve Lee bit the dust back in 2010. Fact is, I was never much a fan of the band from the beginning. Sure, I saw some of their videos on MTV’s Headbanger’s Ball back in the day but I never found them that interesting. It would take up until 2005 and the amazing Lipservice album, an album that still gets me fired up on all cylinders when I hear it. The two follow-up’s, the almost as brilliant Domino Effect (2007) and Need To Believe (2009) turned me into a real fan and I decided to give their older albums a shot again. My judgment to pretty much all of them is still that they’re good but they couldn’t hold a candle to three mentioned records. When Steve Lee passed away, Gotthard was very close to finally get their long-awaited major break-through but instead they now had to focus on whether they would stay together or not and if they would, who would be the singer?
