SUPARED - Supared - CD - Noise Records

review by: Roberto Martinelli

Supared is the new band of Helloween's most famous and talented singer, Michael Kiske, who, with the release of Helloween's Keeper of the Seven Keys series in the mid-80, is largely responsible for influencing countless kids who would later form power metal bands. And while it would be understandable if you thought that Kiske's glory days were long behind him and that Supared would suck, think again.

Supared is a rock band that plays super solid rock music. So naturally the make or break point will be the singer. Now, you're not going to get the constant, straining highs common to Euro power metal on this album, but you will get soaring vocal melody after another on a record whose 14 songs each have something to offer.

Of course, Kiske would be nowhere without a good band to back him up, and the other members of Supared are all top notch at laying down perfect grooves and rhythms. Kiske is one of the greates voices rock has ever had. You can be sure to find this record on my best of list next year.
