Ultra rare indie gem from US that most collectors don’t know this exists, others that do can’t find it. The band’s only release contain 11 songs cross between hard rock and metal with lots of harmonies for fans of late 80s hard rock scene. Easily as good as the more well known hard rock indie but tons more rare.

This hyper rare 9 track album was released in the late 80s on the band’s own label. Extremely rare mid-west sounding AOR-pop indie flawlessly played to perfection. Loads of hooks, great vocals and tight musicianship this indie should appeal to fans of lightweight AOR-pop.

Mega rare US indie release from 2001 on Blue Dot Records. Another worthy female fronted hard rock band, a little too polished and produced but Jude’s voice and the songs make up for it. They play hard rock with some country influences reminds bands like Phanotm Blue and Femme Fatale.

Both albums gained highly positive reviews with Gaetano Di Falco‘s wonderful art making striking covers. 2015 also saw the release of the ‘Dragon And Saint George‘ EP which contained 3 exclusive bonus tracks. ‘Albion‘ now completely sold out.

Nothing bad to say here, this is a solid EP from a straight forward rock band. Listen to ‘The Hourglass,’ if that chorus, those vocals and for the love of guitar gods, if that solo doesn’t win you over, I’m at a loss. I have no clue why this band is not more well known than they are . . . just buy it.
