The project has since involved several other musicians such as Jimmy Bain and Tony Franklin among others with Wallner and Vain performing all guitars and vocals respectively. Every single track here is well- written and Will Walner is the true guitar hero here when it comes to some solid soloing and riffing! This guy is so talented and his style reminds me a mix of Randy Rhoads & Jake E. Lee without loosing his own personality! Most of all, the duo performs some true 80's heavy rock stuff that will not dissapoint any fan of this gerne! No modern stuff, just pure hard rock music that is played with heart and soul! Some of the album's highlights are "Miles Away", which features Vinny Appice & Rudy Sarzo, the heavier "Indestructible" with Wallner's huge guitar work, "Soul Monster" and my personal favorite tune of "Streets Of Rage".
Bottom line is that Wallner-Vain's debut album is a really solid album with some strong moments in it. It has power, attitude, solid songwriting, great performances and some impressive guest list! I'm looking forward for the duo's future works!
