I'm looking forward to hearing what this one sounds like.  I enjoyed the first three albums, but the last one had a change in style and overall was a step down in quality, to me.  I'm hoping this is more in line with those earlier releases.

NEW SONG & VIDEO ALERT: Sunstorm feat. Joe Lynn Turner will release their new album, "The Road To Hell" on June 8th! Today, the title track has been unveiled for your listening pleasure! Enjoy the video!

Any hardcore fan of hard rock will certainly be no stranger to the story of Joe Lynn Turner’s career. From his early days with Fandango to his successful stints fronting Rainbow, Deep Purple, and Official Yngwie Malmsteen and through his heralded solo career, the New Jersey-born singer has had his vocal talents on display for decades now.

Joe Lynn Turner says "The key to a great song is in the writing, performance, melody and lyrics. Anyone who loves melodic hard rock will not be disappointed with the first song! Personally, I love the positive message that it conveys to the listener...and the chorus is extremely memorable...The music is tight and compelling and played brilliantly. Turn it up loud and enjoy a great kick off to a rocking summer!!!"

Years ago, Turner got in touch with Frontiers’ President Serafino Perugino and after discussions between the two, the idea of unearthing some classic melodic rock gems to craft the definitive Joe Lynn Turner AOR album came about. This brought about the release of the first SUNSTORM album in 2006, and then came “House of Dreams” in 2009, “Emotional Fire” in 2012, and the definitively more hard rocking “Edge Of Tomorrow” in 2016.

The new album, “Road To Hell”, once again featuring production from Hardline’s Alessandro Del Vecchio and guitars by prog metaller titans DGM’s Simone Mularoni, continues in the same hard rock direction that was started on “Edge Of Tomorrow” and that JLT’s vocal talents shine so brightly in when performing this style.

Not their best song but still good.  Looking forward to the rest of the album.

As the promo write up indicated the new album is similar to the last release rather than a return to the AOR style of the first few albums.  Joe Lynn Turner still sounds good and the guitar solos are well played.  The songs themselves are all pretty good but there weren't any tracks that I found myself wanting to hit the repeat button on.  And I guess that tells the story for me.  While I like it slightly more than Edge of Tomorrow,  I still prefer the first three releases which each had a few standout tracks.

I agree, but I'm enjoying it for what it is.

Having listened to the whole album more, only the title track really stands out for me.  It's a solid effort, one I certainly enjoy listening to, but not an all-timer for me.  The title track, however, is fantastic.  I definitely like it more than I did a month ago now that I've had a few more listens.

Fairly standard material and just an OK album for me, nothing really stands out. The debut is still the best album IMHO.

    • Is this getting a general release, rather than the very pricey version from his website?
    • Not a bad tune.. It's a pretty good album in general 
    • Brilliant album  and one of the best of it's type. so if you haven't got it before, now is your chance.
    • From FB back in May: Hi All!
      This time we have a little heartbreaker for you called "I'm loving you"
      It's our 7th song,
      i'm very tempted to put out few other's but i want there to be some surprises for the album but who knows maybe we will throw one more out in near future.
      We still have a lot of work to do,as we are working on our own and we are on and off 3 member band at the moment,
      but i can tell you there will be 12-13 songs on the album and i have songs to fill up quarter of the next album.
      I can't wait for the album myself and i know there will be no fillers.
      Depends on taste,but these days for me is hard to find a decent album which has more than 2-3 very good tracks,so i have to stick with the old school AOR mostly.Still some stuff to discover though. This track,like all the others is mixed and mastered by our very good lead guitarist Mick T
      and i can be blamed for the lyrics & music as usual. And again big THANK YOU for listening etc.We will work harder to get further and i hope the future will look bright for us
      Cheers!

    • I'm going to go with this one.
      Opener off the album and I thought it was ok on first listen, since them has grown a lot on me  
    • Starting over at the age of 57. Watch the documentary 'Queen of Scream' down below. From AOR Heaven: She is one of the finest Canadian Rock singers, she fronted for 36 years celebrated melodic rockers Headpins recording 3 albums, and she did backing vocals of countless '80s records. In August 2016 Darby performed the last gig with Headpins and from this date she's now under her own monicker. The "Flying Solo" stuff is a compilation of songs recorded by Darby Mills during the '80s / early '90s, released under the 'Darby Mills And The Unsung Heroes' moniker, long time out of print. All the material has been digitally remastered for the first time, and it sounds million bucks. Easily among the best female fronted AOR ever recorded, all the songs on this CD are fantastic and simply utterly essential for really every AOR lover !  Get it from her website (CA$ 25.00 incl. shipping): http://www.darbymills.com/store
