FORTUNE – The Gun’s Still Smokin’ Live (2020)

To celebrate the release of their then comeback studio album, American melodic rockers FORTUNE traveled to Milan, Italy for the 2019 edition of the Frontiers Rock Festival to play a rare live set. A milestone performance, which happened on April 27, 2019, the set will now be released as a CD/DVD on August 7, 2020, titled ”The Gun’s Still Smokin’ Live”.
Fortune are known for their pristine sound, and while ”The Gun’s Still Smokin’ Live” is live recording, it actually does stand on its own two feet. Yes, like the band’s sound, it’s a bit clinical, but it does capture the polished essence of Fortune: the crisp vocals, the carefully crafted melodies, the intertwined guitar melodies, the combination of lightweight, memorable choruses and dark crunching bottom end that exemplifies well-crafted AOR. An exemplar of this particular genre at its most accurately portrayed.
A unique, and rare, performance, this is a must hear for all AOR fans.
