LYNOTT - 11.09.2019 -
"Line Of Fire" is the third opus of First Signal, a combo that symbolizes one of the solo lives of Harry Hess, the vocalist of the Canadian melodic hard rock band Harem Scarem. He is on this work associated with the Swedish drummer Daniel Flores (The Murder Of My Sweet, Find Me) who also plays keyboards and was in charge of the production, and offers us, what he knows best, an opus filled with beautiful melodies carried by gently rocking hard rhythms. 

The number of such opus has increased in recent years. The Frontiers label is the main responsible for this frenzy and fans of the genre are perfectly aware, with each new production, of having to sort out the wheat from the chaff. Indeed, if an abundance of goods does not harm, the fact remains that the huge number of bands, and therefore albums, flooding the market inevitably generate opuses of lesser, even poor quality. But this is not the case with this "Line Of Fire", and far from it. It must be said that Hess has accustomed us, whether with Harem Scarem or on the occasion of his various solo escapades, to work flirting with the remarkable. If you add to this constant the presence of the aforementioned Swede, who knows what clean production means, and that of his compatriot Michael Palace, who is far from being a six-stringed zero, you leave little room for fear a musical disaster. 

So of course, no one will be able to argue that the ten titles proposed here do not have a little bit of a déjà vu look. But what do you expect, melodic hard rock has its codes and their certain immutability rarely gives rise to original attempts. So, once this evidence is swept away, there is still the pleasure of listening to that damn man Hess and letting him take us by the shoulder to push us to sing with him the unstoppable choruses that populate this "Line Of Fire". Between scores that Harem Scarem would not have denied and songs that Bon Jovi would have liked to play, this album is an FM tube factory. Those who sing their favourite melodies in the shower will have to pay a water bill that will inevitably skyrocket! Among them, but that the choice is cornelian, we can partially install on the podium the unstoppable "A Million Miles", the galvanizing "Tonight We Are The Only" (Jon comes out of this body!) and the addictive "Need You Know". 

Here is an album that will delight fans of the genre and especially those of the Canadian with the golden voice. In line with everything the gentleman has proposed since Harem Scarem's birth, he can only satisfy his groupies. Those who don't know his works and appreciate melodic hard rock must hurry to catch up, as for the refractories of measured sounds and ritorns that could have their place on FM waves, you can go on an another way, this Line Of Fire is not for you. But nothing prevents you from giving it as a gift!
