Best From… Hart – The Conqueror
Today, I would like to review the debut album “The Conqueror” released a two months ago by Norwegian band Hart.
“Hart” was formed this year by: Rock Hart, Julian Angel and Steen Larsen (all from SEKS band), initially their album was planned to release under “Neon” title, but they decided to choose something more proper.
Their official website:
- Goin’ Down
- Lay It On Me
- Hotter Than Hell
- 25 To Love
- Untamed Heart of Rock N’ Roll
- Neon Dreams
- Love Crime
- Wide Awake
- Scream and Shout
- The Conqueror
- Rock Me
- Anchorage (only on physical CD)
- Wild Streets (only on physical CD)
My most favorite track from this album is “Untamed Heart Of Rock n’ Roll“. It is hard to say, which element is best in itself: rebellious lyrics or rather chorus mixed perfectly with melody and guitars (very good guitar solo, by the way). After you would hear all songs, I am certain that you will notice that this song is much different musically from the rest (at most: faster tempo and chorus).
As regards, title track – “The Conqueror” which is my number #2, I like the balance between vocals and heavy tones. What is more, the tough vocals that begins this song make this track more exciting.
Besides the “Untamed Heart Of Rock n’ Roll“, there is also another song that is much different than rest, I mean “Wide Awake“, I am not certain if I should call it pure 100% ballad, but it is very calm and relaxing and I appreciate as it makes the whole album diversified.
To conclude, the first reason why you should buy this album is the vocal style of Rock Hart, secondly if you like tough, “slightly decadent” music influenced by 80s metal – it will be a perfect choice. Let’s see what tomorrow brings, and I am waiting for their next album, hope good as least as “The Conqueror” is!
