I enjoyed the prior album from this project and was always surprised they didn't put out a follow up, until now at least.  I'm hoping this one is as good the first

First song released from 'Rise'.

The song has a pleasant chorus and vocals sound good, but rather mellow for a lead single.  It sounds closer to Wilson Phillips than the debut.   I'm still interested in hearing more though based on the strength of the prior release.

Out now.

From Frontiers:

NEW RELEASE ALERT: Two Of A Kind's sophomore album, RISE is out now! Buy or stream it here: http://radi.al/TwoofaKindRise

Two Of A Kind is a melodic rock band from Holland, whose self-titled debut album was released by Frontiers in 2007. Fred Hendrix, better known as main songwriter and singer for the Melodic Rock masters TERRA NOVA, heads up the band. Back at the turn of the century, Fred had become more and more interested in production and songwriting, so he started looking for new and fresh talent to develop. Following several suggestions from Frontiers Records’ President and A&R Director, Serafino Perugino, Fred hooked up with not one but two female singers, Esther Brouns and Anita Craenmehr.

After a few writing sessions, Fred submitted the plan for a new band with a great melodic rock edge in the style of Boston meets Heart style to Frontiers, who liked the material and signed the band in late 2005. Recording of the self-titled debut album was completed during the Summer ‘06 with Fred’s TERRA NOVA bandmates Gesuino Derosas (guitar), Hans in't Zandt (drums), and Fred's brother Ron Hendrix (keyboards) joining the proceedings.

“TWO OF A KIND” was met with a warm reception from fans and critics alike and now the whole gang is back together for another album! Long overdue follow-up, RISE is sure to please melodic rock fans around the globe with the performances of all members even more electric than on the debut.

Rubbish album. I can't remember if I've checked this band out before, but are they always this bad? Nothing at all I like about this album. :(

By chance I heard their previous album the other day (their debut?) and it's actually really quite good. I'm amazed at the difference in quality of the two albums. What on earth happened that this current album is so terrible after a good previous album?

Seemed like all the same members were involved, so outside of the passage of time not sure what happened.  Not terrible, but a significant drop off in song quality compared to the first album.

    • TBH, Bonfire are generally hit and miss with me anyway. Doesn't matter which version.
      Not a band I sit on the edge of my seat waiting for a new release from.
      But at times i really like their stuff, which is why this is a bit of a disappointment in that they are covers. But then I am kind of specific with my covers.
      Was just going through The Treatment and the only cover I kept off Running With The Dogs was No Matter What, others were boring. For me, you either improve on the original - that usually means updating a much older song with a cleaner and heavier sound.
      eg: Radar Love Or you change the original to a different version, while still respecting the original.
      eg: Walk This Way These Bonfire ones for me are the worst kind of covers, they are basically just re-recordings
    • I'll get back to you in a few years with my opinion haha, imma try to get this one soon and be part of the discussion as it happens for a change....
    • In a word.... dreadful. Why couldn't he have done a "Is This The Way That You Want Me" style album??
    • I cannot get enough from it! Pure silky AOR uncork champagne  anthems! They did it again! Of course, I wouldn't mind if they indeed searched for the punchy Crossfire sound. As long as the songs are great. 
    • I really love 2 songs + the styx/kansas worship song. Won't buy it. 
    • Yeah I like it and it is more metal. some more info: Skull Fist - Way of the Road 01. You Belong to Me
      02. No More Running
      03. I Am a Slave
      04. Witch Hunt
      05. Way on the Road
      06. Heart of Rio
      07. Better Late Than Lever
      08. Don't Cross Me
      09. Stay True    
    • Yeah if only he had stuck to something akin to the first two H.E.A.T releases  
    • ones 85%, ones 84%  You get my point yeah. Pointless discussion going on. 
    • I get Steve Perry's reasoning on doing a mellow album, what's Kenny's.?!
    • Yeah for me this is awful,a real waste,he's got a good voice would just have loved a bit more uummphff from the music,it never really gets going...all pretty plodding and samey for me
