Taking Dawn - Time to burn (2010)

How often does it happen that Roadrunner records sign a band that plays 80´s metal? Taking Dawn´s debut "Time to burn" could´ve been released in the late 80´s, the guitar harmonies bring thoughts to Scorpions while the vocal performance belongs in the same neighborhood as Ratt, LynchMob and Rough Cutt.
Typical L.A hardrock so to speak, I really like this album even though many songs soundalike but the opening track "Time to burn" is a killer and their cover of Fleetwood Mac´s "The chain" is right on spot.
Another great song is "Endlessly", that chorus is a winner for sure.
The special edition features the bonus track "Black diamond", yeah that´s right, the classic Kiss tune!
