With four successful releases* under his belt, hard rock singer David Reece reunites with the man that brought him back to the music industry, Swedish guitarist/producer Martin Kronlund. “Solid” is the joined effort between the two musicians and another slice of powerful melodic hard rock. Reece and Kronlund first collaborated in 2008 when the guitarist requested that the singer fronted his band “Gypsy Rose” on their second album; so why this collaborating did not come under the “Gypsy Rose” band name is anyone’s name.

“Solid” is a fair mixture of standard and up tempo melodic hard rock also inducing a substantial amount of AOR to the compositions. The album opens on the intense “My angel wears white” (a direct contrast to “Bangalore Choir”s “Angel in Black”), followed my the epic-melodic “Samurai”, an immense delivery on David’s part sounding mature and aggressive at the same time, indeed the album’s strongest moment. From there onwards you are treated to such heavy (metal) hitters as “Animals and Canibals” and the furious “Paint the mirror black”. One has to also address the AOR sensation that is “Remember you”, an almost balladic melodic rocker where the duo uncovers a great deal of their artistic class. The album closes on the condemning “The dead shall walk the earth” indeed the best way to close a release of this kind.

For fans of up tempo, aggressive but also melodic, hard rock “Solid” is one of the best propositions of this fall. If you are a fan of David Reece you really can not go wrong with the “Reece Kronlund” debut.
