H.E.A.T – Extra Force (2023)
After hymns of praise from media and fans for their latest album ‘Force Majeure’, Swedish heirs of ’80s Melodic Hard Rock H.E.A.T promise to deliver more of the same catchiness with their follow-up “Extra Force“, to be released next September 1st. Everyone who has seen them live knows these guys give everything on stage. “Extra Force” feature 2022 live recorded tracks capturing the energy of their dynamic live performances.
The release also contains two unreleased studio tracks – the empowering anthem “Freedom” and the sentimental ballad “Will You Be”. Last year’s most significant change to the band’s line-up is the return of original singer Kenny Leckremo – “Extra Force” for the first time includes tracks previously sung by Erik Gronwall now with Kenny on vocals.
No doubt among the best Melodic Hard Rock acts out there, H.E.A.T never disappoints.
The new studio tracks are killers, a proof that H.E.A.T with Kenny Leckremo on vocals is the real deal. Kenny’s new versions on ‘Rise’ and ‘One by One’ also showcase the H.E.A.T songwriting perfectly fits his pipes.
The live recordings capture the band in full ‘force’, as usual with H.E.A.T, performed with attention to detail and polished, clean sounding. The digital download version of “Extra Force” includes as extra three tracks from the previous studio album.
