It's a good album but it does feel like there's potential for it to be better

Metal guitarist Tara Lynch releases her debut album at the beginning of March. She not only plays guitar on the album, she also sings – she also can also plays bass, drums and piano but has guest musicians on this album. She’s got some great musicians working with her on the album…

Vinny Appice (Dio, Black Sababth, Last in line) – Drums
Mark Boals (Yngwie Malmsteen, Dokken, Raiding The Rock Vault) – Vocals
Björn Englen (Yngwie Malmsteen, Tony MacAlpine, Soul Sign, Dio Disciples) – Bass
Tony MacAlpine (Planet X) – Keyboards
Glen Sobel (Alice Cooper) – Drums
Phil Soussan (Ozzy Osbourne, Billy Idol, Last in line) – Bass
Brent Woods (Vince Neil, Sebastian Bach, John Waite) – Producer, Synthesizers, Background Vocals

The album kicks off with the title track, “Evil enough” which features Mark Boals on vocals.

Check out the video for the first single – “Antidote”..

Antidote is the first song with Tara Lynch doing the lead vocals. It’s a good melodic metal track.

“Exit the warrior” is the first of four instrumental tracks on the album. It’s a really enjoyable instrumental and it’s not purely an extended guitar solo with a bit of padding around it as you see from some gutiarists – this has as much from the keyboards as from the guitar and it feels like a song rather than a solo.

It’s a good album but it does feel like there’s potential for it to be better – a really fast heavy hard rock song would have added some much needed variety to the pace. Listening to the album just feels like driving a high performance sports car and enjoying it but never red-lining it to see just what it can really do.

“Evil enough” will be released on 1st March 2019
