SteelRush - Through The Night EP


Recommended Posts





From FB:


SteelRush got together with a motive to bring back the melodic 80’s rock - A great influence on their music. With their melodic guitar solos and catchy hooks, SteelRush, intends to give the listener a taste of classic melodic rock in all its glory, while maintaining a characteristic sound that is truly theirs.

The band technically started in 2011 when the guitar player Aham Saxena met singer Apoorv Chouhan. Fueled by a mutual interest in 80’s rock, the two began recording original material at their home studio. It became clear right away that they had something worthwhile after the first few demos, and they knew the time was just right to bring back the classic sound. After an array of lineup changes, SteelRush decided that it was best to continue writing their music as a two-piece band, while performing with session players when they went live.

I greatly appreciated this post from Stefan, even though silently the first go round, and now that the EP (x2) arrived on my stoop today I am thoroughly playing the code off the cd.


EXCELLENT DISC and shame on us all for not commenting.


Here is a third of the 4 cuts on the EP:

Posted up my thoughts on this one





Stefan gave you some props' there in as well hope you don't mind.


Nice. I don't mind. :)


BTW, your review is posted on the band's FB-page.



This review will more than likely end my tenure at SR. Probably for the best as the temperature around there is unstable at best.

    • New song 'Fans Of The Dark'.    
    • Shadows of Yesterday - Vinnie Moore
    • Sorry, that wasn't really what I meant. What I was really going for is that the songs on other albums seem to me to have more of a similar feel to them, like you can tell the songs for Freedom Rock were pretty much all written at the same time. I'm not saying that the songs on Force Majeure don't sound like H.E.A.T (even though I maintain it's not as good, based on the first few spins, as their previous efforts), but that they sound, to me, more "scatterbrained" than the selections from other records. That's not an easy thing to explain, but "direction" was the best word I could think of.    Again, I probably could explained my point better. I wasn't advocating for more guitars so much, but for more variety in the guitars we get. One of the best things for me about the first two H.E.A.T albums (less so for Address the Nation, but still there) was the subtle trade-offs between Dalone and Rivers and the solos that switched between them (good examples of this include the guitar work on "Late Night Lady," "Danger Road" and "Tonight," off the top of my head). Simply because Dalone and Rivers played different set ups and had some variance in tone, you could tell the difference between their playing (though admittedly there were times where Eric Rivers was completely underutilized and overshadowed). Because of the the combination of this record's production and the guitars being all Dave, you don't have as much of that, and that's what I was trying to convey.
    • Agree it reminds of earlier material, but I'm much less of a "Hang Tough" guy and much more of a "What A Shame" kind of guy.
    • Skid Row Nelson Steel Panther Harem Scarem WASP Van Hagar Saliva Joey Tempest Michael Sweet White Lion Mr. Big ... are the easy ones for me. Possibly Warrant as well come to think of it. Some other popular ones listed taht I don't agree with would be Slaughter - 2nd album pipped it GNR - always preferred either UYI albums Tuff - really only had 1 1/2 albums so don't count    
    • and the lyrics tick tock time to rock don't make you cringe?? if it was 1986 and I was 16 it might have been just passable but now, no. 
    • Another release that seems to have been completely overlooked here on HH... check out those vids for "Give It Up" and "Love Will Not Let You Down". I swear both tunes sound like something you'd hear from AdrianGale!  Compassion | Akiba Music (bandcamp.com)  
    • I might stone thrown at me, but hear some Scorpions.
    • "One Voice", which is a demo, is the only one I hear the tape "hiss" on...
    • Is that cassette tape hiss I hear at the start of the song? Is the whole album like that or only the demo tracks?
  • Create New...
