TALISMAN – Vaults [Deluxe Edition Remastered] Full Digipak Version

TALISMAN - Vaults [Deluxe Edition Remastered] Full Digipak Version

Swedish label Sunhill Productions started a few years ago a “Deluxe Edition” Reissue Campaign for all TALISMAN albums, the super-group fronted by talented Jeff Scott Soto. All these remastered reissue CD’s were already featured here on the blog.
But one that has been claiming a re-fresh, this time in its luxury Digipak version is “Vaults“, the double-CD featuring rare recordings, demo / early versions (and different singers as well) never heard before from this great Scandinavian Hard Rock founded by talented Marcel Jacob.

TALISMAN was the pride & joy of talented bassist Marcel Jacob (RIP) who always dreamed with his own band after play and record with the likes of Yngwie Malmsteen and John Norum.

But the genesis of the band saw many musicians in-and-out before the first stable line-up was conformed. In the meantime, various Jacob’s friends lent their voices to record some demos of the new songs.

Apart from Jeff Scott Soto – who finally was Talisman’s frontman, we have Swedish master Goran Edman (Malmsteen, John Norum, Kharma), Matti Alfonzetti (Jagged Edge, Skintrade), Thomas Vikstrom (Talk of the Town, Candelmass, Brazen Abbot) and Stefan Berggren (Company Of Snakes).

“Vaults” is essential for all Talisman / Jeff Scott Soto fans, but also for any Scandinavian Melodic Hard Rock aficionado. Especially the demos with Goran Edman are pure gold.
The tracks were originally well recorded, and now cleaned with a proper remastering the sound obtained is really, really good.
