Steve Grimmett (ex. Grim Reaper, Onslaught) strikes back with his Lionsheart and releases a brand new album called "Abyss". Lionsheart?s line-up is the same that has been together for the last three years including Ian Nash on guitars, Eddie Marsh on bass, Steve Hales on drums, keyboards and of course Steve Grimmett on vocals.
It?s been quiet around Steve Grimmett for some time now but he released an album on Z Records a few years ago but now they are back with a true guitardriven melodic hardrock album.
If you?re familiar with the other Lionsheart albums then you know what you will get from "Abyss", there is nothing new under the sun and to be honest I think many of the songs on this new album is pretty boring and uninteresting. Very much in the same style as their previous albums.
Steve Grimmett has a powerful and strong voice that reminds very much of Damned Nation?s Thomas Thors?n but the songs don?t have enough hooks or memorable choruses to catch the attention of the listener. Maybe If you?re into Lionsheart?s other albums and stuff like Saxon and Damned Nation (not as good though) has done but take a good listen before you buy it.
No, I?m really sorry to say that this is an album that will be forgotten pretty fast.
