RELOAD is a Melodic Heavy Rock / AOR band from Greece. The band was formed in in Larissa in the summer of 2012. They started recording their debut album called "Hotter Than A Bullet" with the famous Greek musician and producer Bob Katsionis (FIREWIND, OUTLOUD),which is going to be released in August 10th 2014 by ROAR! Rock of Angels Records.

The beautiful "Comeback" has an unbelievably catchy chorus with energy singing, great, spacy guitars guitars, clear drums and it is so easily memorable. They sound like the biggest rock stars bands! Brilliant guitar solo and fabulous guitar work with melodic chorus gives a strong AOR vibe. Another highlight on album is "Survive" with powerful, heavier riffs, catchy sounds and melodic singing! Great guitar solo and riffs strongly remind me of EUROPE! Opener "Give into the night" with heavier guitars in DOKKEN style and melodic chorus has also gentle AOR vocals and excellent guitar soloing!

Fantastic building ballad is "Prince of steel" where gentle acoustic guitar accompanies vocalist Kostas Tokas and his wonderful singing with higher style and guitars remind me of SCORPIONS. Amazing melodic riffs in "Longin' for your love" has little commercial echoes and DEF LEPPARD and BON JOVI influences and I really like this track a lot. Stronger, catchy & powerful riffs with keys are awesome in "Higher". This is a catchy track in a GOTTHARD style and oozes mood ! Catchy track with rockin rhythm and influences of such bands like EDGUY and HELLOWEEN is "Superhero".

Also worth to listen are: energetic "Fight" with fine chorus, clear rhythmic section, heavier riffs and thick vocal mixes, "Alone" with heavier guitars and melodic in '80 times with catchy choir and "Candle in the night" with crazy rockin riff.

The style of RELOAD is Melodic Heavy Rock, verging on AOR. The production of this album is on a high level and the experience of the musicians is obvious; their music is played very well and it is melodic & energetic. Their compositions are so catchy and enjoyable during each and every listening. Each listening can uncover new beauty in the music. After each spin, my rating of the music on album grew... Everyone who loves Hard Rock and AOR surely will love the sounds of these Greek Rockers too!
