Voodoo Circle - Broken Heart Syndrome(w/David Readman)

Recommended Posts

Anyone else spinning this one? I think it's incredible and blows the debut away. While the debut was much more Malmsteen like with Alex Beyrodt shredding this disc is much more melodic with Alex doing his best Blackmore. I can't say enough great things about this. With Readman's involvment it's hard not to hear some PC69 and that sound is present on a few tracks.

 

 

"King of Your Dreams" - Very Deep Purpleish

"Devils Daughter" - MKIII Deep Purple meets Whitesnake

"This Could Be Paradise" - Similar to PC69

"Don't Take My Heart" - Very Rainbow

"Blind Man" - If you slow bluesy amazing guitar playing

Wes, i spun it again yesterday and I'll say it's much better compared to my first impression. I think the classic rock comparison is spot on, a bit Malmsteen on his solo, 2-3 weaker tracks, but the rest is solid as hell :party421: .

 

any place to buy this for a decent price ?

I got my copy through AmazonUS for $14.99 and I think NEH here in the States has it for $15.99. There was a seller or two on Amazon that had it for around $10 but not sure about the shipping price.

Yeah, I think I listened to the debut once before I banished it from my ears forever. This new one, however, ain't bad at all. Probably not quite as excited by it as you are, Wes, but it's a good 'un.

i'll watch the market patiently and wait until it drops to $10 for a catch.

I love how they combine heavy metal, some classic Hammond organ, bluesy hooks, and everything, and I'm surprised that Readman's vocal is very close to Coverdale, don't u think ? he never sounded better like this when he's in PC69 i guess.

Yes very Coverdale and with Alex doing his best Blackmore I hear a huge Deep Purple MK III vibe on several of the songs.

The first one was much more Power Metal(ish) although I like it a lot this one is better and to be honest I'm surprised you like it. Usually you don't like to much of the classic and bluesy rock sound but there are at least 5-6 songs that are more in your tastes.

I think it's a pretty solid release to be honest, but I also really liked the debut as well. These guys work well together

    • Imagine a world where Andrew Wood didn’t die and Mother Love Bone was still creating awesome music!
    • “My Icarian Flight” featuring the one and only ADV 😜  
    • lol, this was my thought process too. What about Confess?! I like both bands, but not at the expense of one of them. 
    • I do have to give him credit for sounding exactly the same as he did in 1989...
