I guess we're supposed to be so impressed that this is all played on bass with no guitars that we don't notice it's a bunch of AOR radio crap music. This is a project by that smilin' kraut Markus Grosskopf, and it's just a big pile of nonsense.

Ignore for a moment the whole "Oooooohhhhh! No guitars!" gimmick and just listen to this. It's pretty much a bunch of lame KISS/Cinderella-type hard rock crap with bad vocals (often overlaid in nauseating three-part harmony) and even worse songwriting. Lame is what this is, right down to the Helloween cover tune, just so you don't forget what band Markus used to be in — if you ever cared. I cannot get my head around the pitch for this, because this is seriously just bad rock/metal with... no guitars. Ummm, does that sound good to anyone? No? Me either. Ye gods get this thing out of my CD player.
