- New Album Piece Of Cake
To Be Released In October; Details Revealed
Dutch rock band VENGEANCE
have announced the release of their latest album Piece Of Cake:
"People can expect what to my ears is the best Vengeance album to date,” declares guitarist Timo Somers.
"Tthe songs are a nice blend of old school Vengeance
(think Arabia) and some more modern sounding songs. This time the instrumental side of the band is really outspoken, it features a lot of nice intros, solos and instrumental pieces. And to top it off, Leon sounds better than ever."
Somers promises eleven gripping new compositions: "'Raintime' is the fastest song on the album. The song kind of sounds like an YNGWIE MALMSTEEN
song with Leon on vocals. Double bass, big chorus and a fast guitar solo are the keywords."
The most typical song is the title track 'Piece Of Cake'
. Somers comments: "We needed a party song for the album and we wrote this together in about an hour in the studio. It`s this typical AC/DC thing with Leon going nuts and some VAN HALEN
The most unusual song is 'Back To Square One',
a blues rock ballad in the vein of GARY MOORE.
"I don’t think a lot of people know this side of Vengeance,” Somers suggests, “but it showcases our more soulful side."
