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
