Really tricky mystery album,,, Anyone?

Hi all,

 

I know this might be impossible but you guys on this board usually knows alot and are like the twin of old Sherlock. Here's the question.

 

I found an album in one of my regular record stores in the middle of the 90-ties. It was quite new at that time. The odd thing about it was that it had a metallic box. I can't really remember the cover but I think it was a person (boy) with a guitar in one of the lower corners on really blue background. The music was really good melodic hardock with hints of acts like Steeelhouse Lane. I think it might have been from Italy or some other south European country. It also might have been a guitar players project since I remember the album contain several instrumental songs.

 

I know this is a long shot but if anybody here around have a clue it might be awesome. I can't believe I didn't buy this cd. I had it in my hands so many times but I always bought some other albums instead. And the day I was finnaly going to buy it the sucker was gone.

 

Take care

Ali

It might not have been a boy. But the background was blue and it was a metallic Jewel case. That is the biggest clue.

 

I know my description isn't the greatest.

Pretty sure this is the cd in question. It has about a 50/50 mix of great melodic rock and instrumentals ala Yngwie...

 

As you look at the description in this Amazon add it appears it came with a metal slip sleeve. Mine is a Japanese issue on Fandango Records. (No metal slip sleeve and it is "Sample-Promotional Use Only, NOT FOR SALE!)

You are a god mate! :headbanger::banger::banana::drink:

 

You are spot on. That is the cd. I know that someone on this board would figure it out.

 

Is it hard to get?

 

It would be nice to finally listen to it again.

 

Cheers to everyone that helped me

    • ....If we have something negative to say we will surely let it fly
    • Still waiting for the  2 inch dick Chinese to be held responsible for giving the world the plague.POS Biden Admin and their pussy diplomatic boycott - forget the entire d@mn thing.Send NO athletes.
    • Unless your beathing and lungs are so fucked up you have to be put on a ventilator.  So sorry I inconvenienced hospital staff. 
    • The morons who go to the hospital are just as ridiculous as the people who rail on them for not being vaxed, maybe it's Darwin's theory and who are we to interfere? I begrudgingly went to the hospital, they told me I had Covid, to come to the hospital, I went in they checked my kidney function, gave me some strips to pee on every 7 days, if the strip turned red then to come straight in, then I went home, I think that's pretty common sense, when you make the decision to not get vaxed, don't you kind of assume the risk if it's real? they cant do anything for you, so whats the point in going there? everything they can do you can do at your house, I am firmly in favor of a waiver you need to sign if your not getting vaxed that waives the hospital of any of their duties to treat you, I always spout self accountability rhetoric, that's my olive branch to a vax that's about as trustworthy as the communists pushing it, in my opinion.
    • Who comes out on top in these singer vs singer match-ups. All random. No real rhyme or reason.  
    • Hour Of Doom - Cornerstone 
    • Steel Glove - Accept ( a collection of songs pre " Balls to the walls " )  
    • For some reason the first song's melody reminds me so much of Last Christmas by Wham.
    • From Escape Music: Bite The Bullet were originally formed in 1986 by singer songwriter Mick Benton and drummer Graham Cowling. They met in 1984 when they both joined West London rock band “Mother’s Ruin”. Thanks to the legendary Greg Lake, Benton managed to secure a solo deal with Atlantic Records and he asked Cowling to play drums. Its good to see that their collaboration is still strong to this very day. In 1986 “Bite the Bullet” were formed and the music played was in the style of Foreigner, Toto and Mr. Mister, an album was released in 1989 to some quiet success. The music was warmly received and the band earned themselves some radio airplay. However, britpop was coming into the forefront and a cancelled support slot with the mighty ELO saw the band disheartened and whilst they never really disbanded there was a long period of inactivity. Benton and Cowling always remained friends and they still played in pubs and clubs over the years which brings is up to 2019 when their debut was reissued on CD. It ignited a flame in the two men and brought the original recording back to the forefront again and old fans reappraised the album whilst new fans joined in. In January 2021 the year started with “Black and White” (ESM349) and the band have gone from strength to strength. They combine Mr Mister with Asia to produce a nice smooth rock pop sound. Mick and Graham Have continued writing new material and here we are with an exciting new third release “End of the Line” and the result is amazing; the new songs have given the band a new fresh sound, bringing us into 2022. What a way to start the new year!   Release Date: 21 Jan, 2022  Catalogue no: ESM361  1 Quicksand 4:20  2 Over You 4:26  3 End of the line 3:49  4 Cold Wind 3:45 5 Roundabout 4:20  6 Lost for Words 4:12  7 September Sun 4:03  8 Band of Brothers 4:35  9 Let it Go 3:56  10 Camaraderie 5:02  11 Base Jumping 4:11  12 Sunflowers and Roses 4:08 Line up Mick Benton – Lead Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards Graham Cowling – Drums Malcolm Jones – Guitar
