Some six years after their debut, the German/Greek collaboration between Redrum and former Jaded Heart, Rain and Bonfire singer Michael Bormann finally released a new album with ‘Victims of Circumstances’. It took maybe some time but then again the result is real piece of work. Just like their debut Redrum brings heavy melodic rock with a fine mix between great guitar riffs and symphonic keyboards. And although the songs have a much harder edge than Jaded Heart, it suits perfectly the soulful and slightly hoax vocals of Michael Bormann. This record contains 11 great catchy and at times bluesy songs which grow on you with every spin. The fine arrangements and powerful production are proof of a bunch of talented musicians who knows who to write a good song from head to tail. Additionally a superb cover of John Farnham’s ‘You’re The Voice’ was added.
Redrum bring perhaps nothing new on the table but are masters in what they do. So if you like good old traditional hardrock like Dokken or Gotthard, this is certainly gonna be your cup of tea.
