Artist discography


I remember when I heard World Trades first album back in 1989. I was completely blown away and I still consider the album as a masterpiece. The follow up  from 1995 "Euphoria" was alson good but quite far from the qualities from their debut. Now - after 22 years since their latest album and 28 years after their debut they're back with a third album titled "Unify" and featuring the original line-up of Billy Sherwood, Bruce Gowdy, Guy Allison, and Mark T Williams. So damn cool! My exeptations for this album were huge when I heard that the original line up was back again so what about it then? 

Well - what is there to say more than a big bloody B R A V O. The guys have done an album that other bands in the genre just can dream of doing 2017... It's filled with high class progressive hi-tech AOR and a great production and performance by the guys. Add songwriting that we only could dream of and you probably have the album of the year in the genre called AOR. Just listen to songs like Pandoras Box, the titletrack Unify and my absolute fave on the album "Gone All The Way". Impressive album and a must buy.

Did you know that?

The name "Minus the Bear" comes from an in-joke among the band members, referring to the 70´s television program, B. J. and the Bear. "A friend of the band had gone on a date,” explains singer-guitarist Jake Snider, "and one of us asked him afterwards how the date went. Our friend said, ´You know that TV show from the ´70s B.J. and The Bear? It was like that... minus The Bear.´ That’s the straight truth."
