The Rock Pit Review – “Bonrud: For Lovers of Classic Rock”

“Bonrud: For Lovers of Classic Rock”

When I was asked to review this band and album I had no idea what to expect, so with some researching and belting out a few tunes, I can honestly say that this album has totally blown me away and has already given me consideration of being in my top 10 albums for 2012.

‘Bonrud’ who are established in Minneapolis, might be a strange name for an American band, giving the impression of AC/DC’s legends ‘Bon’ Scott and Phil ‘Rudd’, but the reason is quite simply that the band is named after its main figure – namely, the guitarist Paul Bonrud and he is joined by the talented vocalist Minneapolis’ Rick Forsgren, well-known for his four octave range.

Paul Bonrud engineered and co-produced the album with six-time Grammy winner Keith Olsen (Fleetwood Mac, Foreigner, Ozzy Osbourne, Sammy Hagar, Rick Springfield, etc.).

The US rock band Bonrud return with album number two, the first in eight years ‘Save Tomorrow,’ and if you are into tasty and accessible melodic hard rock, then you can’t go wrong with this one. ‘Save Tomorrow’ album is a great mix of melodic & heavy rock, thrown in for good measure are some catchy songs that are going to please a wide variety of music fans, especially the massive choruses and perfect harmonies…
