I like it, both songs released so far. Sure that Diego dude goes out of his way to sound even more like the late great RJD, especially when it comes to phrasing and vocal melodies. His voice have some of the same characteristics as Dio, so I guess he was carefully picked. Do I care about the copycat tendencies - no not at all, being that 3 of the 5 guys involved have a long standing history with the band they follow in the footsteps of. Could Goldy's guitar solos have been better - sure they could, not up the the standard of Resurrection Kings. But when the rest of the package is that good I'm not too bothered about it.
To my ears this sounds promising, so I hope to hear more songs of this calibre when the album arrives in a couple of months time. As these two tunes doesn't stand back in terms of quality to Last In Line, which quite frankly was a bit of a letdown with only a few redeeming tunes. I hope LIL prove me wrong second time around, as the debut felt patchy at best
