SCREAM ARENA – Forever [single] (2011)
Rock music has been well served by the British Isles over the last four decades.
Most of the prime movers down rock’s flamboyant history have been from UK and this makes the relative scarcity of quality British hard rock acts over the last decade a puzzle.
Scream Arena is one of the bands intending to get British Hard Rock off the ropes and back into the ring is cause for good cheer.
Hailing from York, England, the band was formed in 2005 by vocalist Andy Paul, bassist Nick Daniel, guitarists Christian White and Simon Gillott and an enigmatically named drummer Stix.
After a self published EP-demo, Scream Arena have just released their debut single, “Forever” b/w “Another Night In London Town”.
Taken from their self-titled upcoming album due this year, the single (and album) was helmed by renowned LA producer / artist Paul Sabu.
Scream Arena style is traditional Hard Rock, influenced by classic acts such as Def Leppard, UFO and the rockier Queen, as well as giving a nod to American bands Ratt, WASP and Icon. I can hear some The Cult hints too, specially on the vocals.
These rockers know how to mix solid rhythms paying attention to melodic choruses and persuading structures of the songs.
Interesting and rockin’ advance waiting for the full length album.
