We´re definitely in a new supergroup era with bands like The Winery Dogs, California Breed, White Noise Owl, KXM and now we can add Red Zone Rider to that list as well.
Red Zone Rider are Vinnie Moore - Guitars (UFO), Kelly Keeling - Lead Vocals/Bass (MSG, King Kobra) and Scot Coogan - Drums/Vocals (Lita Ford, Ace Frehley). They deliver bluesy hard rock the 70´s style where my thoughts go to Led Zeppelin, Trapeze and Whitesnake.
You can expect some really great shredding from Vinnie Moore but the good thing is that the music ain´t all about riffs and solos, we also get strong choruses that suits Kelly´s hoarse voice just fine.
Highlights : "By the rainbow´s end", "Cloud of dreams"
