HARDREAMS - Calling Everywhere (2004)

One of the few spanish bands playing Melodic Hard Rock / AOR nowadays.
And they're good.
'Calling Everywhere' was their 1st album recorded in Barcelona between 2002/03, and released a year later through an independient (now defunct) local label.
Real warriors fighting practically alone in the iberian peninsule trying to appeal they fellow countrymen into this genre.

English lyrics, 80's feel, straight production and nice guitar riffs.
Some songs have distinctive twists, due to the mixing of styles involved (some lite prog / bluesy touches).
Maybe the lack of more strong choruses let down a bit the interest throughout the album, but this is real grower, give it a try.

Here I offer the hard to find original spanish edition, recently was reissued plus 3 bonus tracks, if you like it, BUY IT, support the band.

They have multiple user options that will truly bowl you over with the range of activity and speed on offer. Then when you send or receive a fax, you get a confirmation in your web interface and/or by email. Dial the number and press send. Lastly, business is all about competition. Over the years, the reliable old fax machine has become the standard way of sending faxes in most offices and workplaces.
