Lance King once again utilizing his wide vocal range. After leaving Gemini, He formed this band with Dave Barilla. Musically they are a cross between Queensryche and Alice In Chains. Lance later joined Balance Of Power and is currently their lead singer. Ex lead vocalist Tony Ritchie took over on Bass. This CD has very good production. Sometimes a little overboard with the effects, but still worth a listen.

What can ya say? Lance is an amazing vocalist and good song writer, just 18 months behind from setting the trend as opposed to following it.

Lance King was behind the times way back in 1986. He's only now about a decade behind. 7th Heaven wanna be? Even they knew enough to leave town about 13 YEARS AGO!!!! By the way, Lance opened a show for us back in 95' at the Fine Line, he and his band were the most untalented,egotistical,uneducated fucks I have ever met, or heard. My little sister wouldn't give this band the time of day. Todd Lund is the greatest guitar player ever!!!! He must've been high to join King's Machine. He'll grow up.

And you or your band is featured on how many cd's or is still going strong today? Case Closed

From: Steve Date: June 16, 2004 at 19:37
I just saw this cd in the store but it says that Mike Vescera is the vocalist. What the story? Who's actually singigng on the CD Lance or Michael???

Don't waste your cash on this one....friends don't let friends buy bad music. This just did absolutely nothing for me. Balance of Power is a 15 out of 10 compared to this album. 30/100
