The future is bright, the future includes AOR! BRONZ return with their latest release CARRIED BY THE STORM.
This album is a slice of AOR heaven. The AOR genre tends to be dominated by bands from the US but Bronz have done the UK proud with this gem. Guitarist Shaun Kirkpatrick has rebuilt since the original line up split up back in 1984. This album was recorded years ago but the label went into receivership and it is amazing how new and fresh it sounds now that it has finally seen the light of day.

Opening track Can't Live Without Your Love kicks off with a Bon Jovi/Europe-esque feel. I have to say I love songs with keyboard parts that are neatly integrated and really enhance the sound.

Man Girl Machine could have been lifted from a lot of 80s movie soundtrack with great guitars and big horns too. Taking things a little lighter Bronz dish up a lovely Foreigner vibe with Carried By The Storm.

If you have a penchant for AOR then this album is definitely worth checking out.

Standout tracks:
Carried By The Storm
Man Girl Machine (just for the 80s groove that it carries)
One More Time
