BADSTAR – If You Were Dead You’d Be Home By Now +3

Listening to “If You Were Dead You’d Be Home By Now“, the debut album by Australians BADSTAR, there’s one thing that never stops to amaze me from this modern age: if you have Real talent, you are able to create a very good album at your own basement.

But for a band that initially got together a decade ago for the purpose of “infrequently jamming together for pure enjoyment”, that debut and its success was an unexpected surprise that took three years so it should be little surprise that once again, Sonic Divide took the slow, patient route in creating the follow up.
Fans of Sonic Divide‘s AOR drenched debut that tied in somewhere between ’80s bands like Survivor and Journey and European melodic hard rock, stand to be even more blown away this time around…
