World Fire Brigade have an album out called Spreading my Wings. It is a mixture of good old hard rock, some touches of metal, and a few tracks that are quite "modern". Not surprising considering it is made up of members of bands like Fuel, Smile Empty Soul, and Candria It all works quite nicely together and produces a decent collection of tracks.
Finally I want to mention David Watt Besley, which I spaced including in last week's column. This is not metal at all, but soft rock-tinged outlaw country or country-tinged soft rock, if that suits. Hopeless Romantic is worth seeking out for those more mellow moods.
Stay safe all and keep dry if in the way of Issac.
