MENCHEN - IN THE LIGHT (Final Axe/Titanic)
RAR8000: Four Panel Full Color Digipak The debut 2008 Menchen release, Red Rock, was a special project including the contributions of vocalist Ken Redding (His Witness), Robert Sweet (Stryper) and bassist Tony Franklin (Whitesnake & Blue Murder) to produce a creative hard rock sound. Musically, In The Light (Retro archives Edition) trends towards a darker, weightier and all around heavier, more metal influenced sound than Red Rock. The project gives rise to a traditional classic metal feel along the lines of Judas Priest and Black Sabbath with occasional doom-like moments thrown in. Redding is back on vocals showcasing his deep, rich mid-ranged vocal style that sounds like a cross between Jimmy Brown (Deliverance) and Eric Clayton (Saviour Machine) but with a touch of Geoff Tate (Queensryche) added. Drums continue to be top-notch with Stryper's Robert Sweet at the helm once again! The 2012 Retroactive Records version has been mastered by audio guru, J Powell of Steinhaus!
