Title: TunguskaLabel: Frontiers Music Srl
their reformation back in 2006 and two critically acclaimed
studio album and a great live album, Treat are back with
their brand new album ‘Tunguska’, named after when an object
from space apparently exploded in the atmosphere above
Siberia. The explosion killed reindeer and flattened trees,
in what has become known as the Tunguska event.
what an event this new ‘Tunguska’ truly is.
The band have kept up where their superb 2016 release
‘Ghost of Graceland’ left off and shows that after some
30 years, the band still have the hunger to produce great
music and believe me, ‘Tunguska’ will fill even the
emptiest of rock bellies.
The album gets underway with the ‘Progenitors’ and from here on in the album doesn’t look back, as each track outshines it’s predecessor. This band come out of the gates like thunderous champions on the race of their life and with this collection of songs and stunning production, how could anyone be anything other than left speachless by this release.
band mix great hard rock with a touches off classy AOR, with
the likes of the excellent ‘Always Have, Always Will’
that has anthem written all over it and just begs to be
heard live. Then we have the simply stunning ‘Best of Enemies’, the rocking
‘Creeps’ and the epic feelings of ‘Overboard’.
Then throw in the ballad ‘Tomorrow Never Comes’
and the no holds barred rockers ‘All Bets Are Off’ and
‘Undefeated’, and what you have here is the perfect Rock
I certainly don’t come across many albums of this calibre these days and highly recommend you check out this release. I sure hope the UK festival promoters do and we get to see a lot more of this band on UK shores in future.
