FIGHTER – Bang The Drum +3 unreleased [Digitally Remastered] *HQ* Exclusive
Some time ago we featured here the first FIGHTER album ‘The Waiting’ in its remastered reissue version, now it’s time for the band’s second CD, 1992’s “Bang The Drum” including 3 previously unreleased tracks.
Led by talented vocalist and principal songwriter Amy Wolter FIGHTER played arena style melodic hard rock / AOR plenty of hooks and melodies galore. The distinctive element in FIGHTER’s style was the trade-off vocals between Wolter and male singer & drummer Sean Murphy. Dual vocals proved to work great for them and provided dynamics not seen in other bands of this ilk.
“Bang The Drum” is slightly more melodic hard rock than AOR compared with Fighter’s debut, more crisp in the guitar sound.
When “Bang The Drum” hit the shelves in 1992 rock business in America was changing, but Fighter didn’t changed their musical style in favor to the trend of the moment. This is one of the last female fronted melodic hard rock albums released in the USA at the time, and a very good one.
The album has been completely remastered and also contains 3 unreleased bonus tracks, unreleased songs from the early ’90s professionally recorded – still with a ‘rough mix’ but with very good sound quality despite of being demos.
