Most members of the band Angel Heart are part of the established Norwegian heavy metal band Highland Glory and have musical roots that go back to 1980’s hard rock such as Judas Priest and Queensryche. The group’s line up consists of the clean, crisp voice of Trine Elise Johanson, keyboards and guitars by Lars Andre’ Larsen, drums by Morten Faeovig and bass by Oystein Aaseby Pedersen, and together they make an amazing band. They released their debut album on 18th May 2018, the self-titled “Angel Heart”.

This album has lots of great qualities. Trine’s voice is just outstanding, so clean and crisp and just one of those voices you can listen to, close your eyes and drift off to another world. The guitar riffs keep you wanting more with every song and with a drum beat that has you playing air drums, what is there not to like with this album? It’s fun, it’s punchy, it’s emotional and it’s packed with energy from start to finish. Even if you’re not into rock music, this album is catchy and such a great listen.

The stereotypical rock music from Norway seems to have to an assumed persona of harsh looking and gruff sounding, but this is like night and day to what you think it is going to be. The intense lyrics of ‘She Is Strong’ chill you to the bone, and, being a mother myself this hit a chord with me. It is very much a girl power song, a real anthem to us ladies, and with power melodies “angel’s face and angel heart,” the intensity of the music brought a tear to my eye.

Then there’s ‘Rock Friends’. The guitar riffs that start this off are just amazing. And hey, we all have rock friends. I can see this being sung loud and proud at any concert about true friendships and being there for each other, and the lyrics “we’ll be friends until the end” sums up most rock friendships.

Worth the Wait? Yes, it has been as I can’t say one bad word about this album. It has everything you could want in a rock album; a knock out rock beat, amazing guitar riffs, and such outstanding vocals. The songs have so much meaning behind them, they are catchy, and you will know the words in no time. Rest assured you will soon be singing along with them at the top of your voice (and this is where I say sorry to my neighbours!)
It’s very rare to find an album where there isn’t at least one track you’re not into, not sure of or don’t like. Well, this is one such album as I love every single one of them. The listener is transported from Hard Rock to Soft in a heartbeat and without losing any of the enjoyment.

The last track ‘Sailing Against The Wind’ is very emotional, a story of loss but remembered always in dreams, compared to the rest of the album. This is an emotional roller coaster and if you have ever lost anyone special this will certainly hit home.
If this is their debut album, then I hope they are already writing new material for the next one as I will be waiting for it. Just brilliant!
