PREY - THE HUNTER - MAUSOLEUM
This Swedish band's name and album title may sound like one belonging to a heavy metal band, but Prey is a melodic rock act with a long history behind it. Everything started circa 1985 when the band was influenced by Saxon, Accept and Scorpions. Now featuring Yngwie Malmsteen drummer Patrick Johansson the band has issued an album that is more like the bridge between Europe and Dokken on the one side and pop rock on the other. The album begins with a razor sharp guitar sound that could have belonged to George lynch, but soon goes into bubblegum territory with touches of Europe and Journey and goes on to have a keyboard presence. The tunes I Am and Beside Me are kind of a dull, while Liar or Angel No. 9 (song number 10 actually) moderately make up for them. The band's music is not bad and this type of rock and hard rock are always appreciated. Still, the vocals of Thomas Nyström are flat and the guitars seldom bother to flourish. The problem with bands like Prey is that the style's forefather were so darn good that matching their level is nearly impossible. Yet, hope springs eternal. - Sheila Wes Det
