REVIEW : T3NORS, Naked Soul (Frontiers Music s.r.l. Release: 10 February 2023)

T3NORS is the brand new and exciting project from Frontiers Music that features three amazing singers ; Robbie LaBlanc (FIND ME, BLANC FACES), Toby Hitchock (PRIDE OF LIONS) and Kent Hilli from the fantastic Swedish super-group of Perfect Plan!

The story behind this record actually dates back quite a few years ago as Frontiers wanted to do a “three tenors” type of record for quite some time. Given the extremely high level of AOR/Melodic Rock vocal talent that the label has worked with in the past and continues to work with today, the idea never really lost steam. The issue was always finding the right pairing of three singers and the timing for the individual singers to have holes in their schedule to record. 

So, the time is right for pairing these amazing three singers and the result is entitled "Naked Soul". The debut opus is out through Frontiers Music and the certain thing is that will please all the fans of pure AOR/Melodic Rock sound. 

Except Kent, Toby and Robbie this project consists also ofAlessandro Del Vecchio (bass, additional keyboards, guitars, and backing vocals), Francesco Savino on guitars and Jacopo Martignoni on drums. The production is carefuly handled by no one else than Alessandro Del Vecchio. 

The overall sound here recalls to the sound of the glory mid 80's U.S. AOR scene with a more updated 'pinch' that makes the final result an extremely pleasant music ride. The voices of all three amazing singers 'bond' perfectly together and there's plenty of highlights for your ear pleasure. Overall, I would dare to say that T3NORS's "Naked Soul" is a true hell of a record that each and every single Melodic Rock maniac sould add to his collection asap.
