DarkHorse is the new vehicle for Canadian vocalist Paul Laine and his band. Its country driven, but the heart of the album’s songs remain melodic rock. "Let It Ride" is mature enough musically and someone can find that out by listening at least two or three songs at random. The compositions are simple, without much fanfare and are flowing gently in the ears of the listener. Laine shows once again what a gifted singer he is reminding the glamor of the past and takes the songs to a high level. He is flawless throughout and especially good on the ballads of the album and also the faster compositions as well. Similar artists: Bon Jovi, Keith Urban.
The project had its inception from the great esteem that both Andre Andersen – keyboard maestro and mainman of ROYAL HUNT – and Paul Laine – formerly singer of DANGER DANGER – had one for each other. After the first recording sessions Andre felt the desire to expand the project to another powerful and strong vocalist he had the chance to admire for some time, that is to say PINK CREAM 69 shouter David Readman.
1991's Recycled is the third and final album by the melodic hard rock band Prophet. Like its predecessor (Cycle of the Moon), Recycled featured former Surgin' main man Russell Arcara on vocals. Appropriately, Recycled follows the same formula as Cycle of the Moon. The album is a straightforward melodic hard rock release, with big guitar hooks, prominent keyboards and of course a couple of ballads.
After having released the first album, Fasano and Poley left the band. Poley joined the group Danger Danger as its lead vocalist and bandleader. Prophet then invited Russell Arcara (vocals) and Michael Sterlacci (drums & vocals) to join. During this period the band was managed by Noel Monk, who previously managed Van Halen. This lineup recorded the band's second album Cycle of the Moon for Megaforce/Atlantic. This album is considered the most important by the group and peaked at 137 on the Billboard 200.
The Best AOR / Pomp album of all times? For many people, PROPHET's self-titled debut it is. A fusion of '80s AOR and Melodic Rock with late Seventies bright progressive / pomp rock, this album is pure gold from start to finish. As in most albums of those mentioned styles, keyboards / synths play a fundamental role adding to the complexity of the song structures. Vocal duties are handled by no less than three of the band's members, and one of them is Ted Poley (who of course would later front Danger Danger), who actually is the drummer of the band here.
