Prey: The Hunter

Sweden has been a real hot bed for some of the best hard rock and metal the world has seen. Formed by long time friends Thomas Nystrom (vocals/ guitar) and Peter Baecke (bass), Prey is one of the latest bands from this Scandinavian country to throw their hat into the ring with their debut CD, The Hunter. The band's sound can best be described as melodic hard rock and although drummer Patrick Johansson's main claim to fame is that he's played with fellow countryman Yngwie Malmsteen don't expect any similarities in sound. The band has been honing their music now for quite awhile and while they have produced an above average sounding CD, courtesy of Anders 'Theo' Theander, recorded at top notch recording studio Roasting House, the end result produced less than average results. Nystrom's guitar playing is worth mentioning and you get the feeling that he's a skilled enough player who can rip when he wants to, however the slick and commercial sounding songs rarely call for much in the way of solos so he doesn't get many chances to show off his chops. As for the songs themselves, there's nothing new or ground breaking musically or otherwise on this disc, if you are a fan of hard rock that doesn't push the envelope or stray far from the norm then this will be right up your alley.
