At Vance – “Facing Your Enemy”

At Vance – “Facing Your Enemy” (AFM Records)

Germany’s At Vance essentially play melodic hard rock led by master guitar magician and composer Olaf Lenk (ex-Velvet Viper) and vocalist Oliver Hartmann (ex-Centers), whose voice could be a dead ringer for Dave Coverdale’s! And AOR Whitesnake is a pretty close comparator to where At Vance are at, with husky rock vocals, heart breaking melodies and sultry keyboards defining songs like ‘See Me Crying’ or ‘Don’t Dream’. I used to think that At Vance were sorta power metal and funnily enough they offer a neo classical instrumental in ‘March Of The Dwarf’ but it seems strangely out’ve place both in terms of its title and style compared to the rest of this album, which is a fine one for crooners rather than rockers.
