|Average Hard Rock band. Nothing really special here. Best songs are The 7th Day and Fall From Grace and the rest are fillers at best. The guitar playing is not bad. If you can pick this up cheap go for it but don't send big bucks on this. I rate this 5/10 just for the two songs mentioned.

|Some guy on ebay, right now, is selling High Voltage - Edge of the World. The track listing is Fishin, Platform Zero, Spanish Wells, Messiah, Remember, and Home. This apparently is the same band 'cause it too has Nick Catanese in it. Never heard of it, and it has none of the tracks from their S/T release from 1991 on it. I've got the Retrospect Written In Stone with: Troubled Eyes, King Soul, Written Soul, It's Raining, 7th Day, Fall From Grace, Fire Dancer, Hi Time, Night Alone, (cont')

|(Cont') and I'll Give You The World. Those last four were from the S/T. Can anybody help me? I also asked the guy about it, and he told me it was the only issue they had. So now I'm quite confused! Anyways, I like this album (Written in Stone). Nothing fantastic, but Troubled Eyes is okay, King Soul is good, Written Soul is okay, It's Raining is a good ballad, 7th Day is a great rocker as is Fall From Grace. From the S/T: Fire Dancer and Hi Time are okay, Night Alone starts off cheesy (cont')

|(Cont') but smartens up into a fair ballad, and I'll Give You The World is another decent ballad. All in all I gave it a 7.5! Like the guys above don't spend too much on it. I recommend getting the Retrospect Records issue, 'cause you get the four extra tracks and it's cheaper.

|is it right it's the michael bormann's first band in early years his career? does anybody would to share it?

|Technically-proficient but kind of underwhelming melodic metal with some covert Christian undertones (not a negative in my book, but it needed to be said). What the band really needed was a better songwriter, because with some bigger hooks, most of these tracks would be pretty solid, but as they stand now, they're missing the catchiness factor that a song needs to be memorable. This is harmless stuff to throw in the stereo once in a blue moon, but nothing you're going to reach for on a regular basis. Bottom line, these guys don't deserve to be stoned to death for this album, but they don't deserve any kudos either.

|These guys originally formed out of the Pittsburgh area around 1986 with a lineup featuring Josh Holmes (v), Nick Catanese (g),Mike Mizia (b), & Wayne Walnoha (d). It's unclear if the 199 4-track recording was a Demo or an official EP as well as the members participating, although the above lineup was together until at least 1988. Wayne would then be replaced somewhere along the line by John Karbowski on drums as well as John Fuechslin being added as a keyboardist (Josh Holmes originally handled these duties with lead vocals). The new lineup would release "Written In Stone" which was a slight improvement over the earlier material and grows on the listener with some shimmering keys that brought some AOR elements into their Melodic Rock style. I would compare them musically to the New Jersey-based ZIAD although some more upbeat material could've benefitted them. There would be another EP in 1994 ("Edge of The World") although I'm not sure who contributed aside from Nick on guitars.....

|...It's also unclear if they were actually a Xian act or not, as I've seen them labeled as such as well as reading some information stressing that they were not. Both original pressings of their EPs fetch anywhere from $80-$100+ dollars with the out of print "Retrospect" reissue also fetching around $50+ dollars nowadays. I think these guys were a little bit better than they may have been given credit for though.
