GATHERING OF KINGS - DISCOVERY

“Discovery“, the highly anticipated second album of the Swedish Allstar Project, easily manages to meet expectations.

It’s a brilliant hybrid of bands like ECLIPSE or H.E.A.T. and BOSTON and MAGNUM. Using different vocalists – like in AVANTASIA – works perfectly. Songs like “Lorelei“, “Heaven On The Run“ or “Moonlight“ will leave you speechless.

The fact that the songs are basically written by Victor Olsson (SAFFIRE) works very positively in terms of tightness of the material.
