ALPHA SOULS – Carousel Of Emotions (2020)

Tomorrow is the release date for ”Carousel Of Emotions”, the debut album from he new melodic hard rock band ALPHA SOULS. Mentioning as inspiration the ’80s sound of the genre and bands like WHITESNAKE, WINGER, SKID ROW, etc, after first listen I can tell you can hear these influences, and some British AOR acts from the same decade too.
This Spanish band wanted the proper vocalist to perform their English-lyrics songs, and the chance to have Greek vocalist Manos Fatsis (OYSSEY DESPERADO, HIDEAWAY) completed the circle. Fatsis has the perfect pipes & style for this type of material, and fits ALPHA SOULS’ music like a glove.
And the music is bright melodic hard with a polished sound and detailed production, where I would mention too similarities to Mr. BIG, ADRIANGALE, early NEWMAN and more.
Surprisingly mature and powerful band, a Highly Recommended listen.
