Vandenberg. A name with an illustrious past. Led by master guitarist Adrian Vandenberg, the Dutch foursome released three quality albums during the early to mid-'80s, namely, the self-titled 1982 debut, (spawning the US hit single 'Burning Heart') 'Heading For A Storm' ('83) and 'Alibi' ('85). They achieved commercial success and earned much acclaim. The band toured the US, Japan and Europe playing with the likes of Ozzy Osbourne, KISS, Rush, Scorpions, Michael Schenker and more.
The guitarist pulled a master stroke by bringing in Chilean bornRonnie Romeroon vocals; who's forged a formidable reputation over the past few years with Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow. “I needed an incredible singer in order to make the use of the Vandenberg name make sense and Ronnie more than fits the bill. We got chatting through Facebook, and I asked him if he'd be interested in being in the band. It turns out he is a big fan, as I am of him, so we met in Madrid, where he lives, to see if we could get along, and we really connected.”
The rhythm section for the new line-up features bassistRandy van der Elsen(of NWOBHM heroes Tank) and drummerKoen Herfst, (Bobby Kimball (Toto), Epica and Doro). Vandenberg says, “Koen has been voted Holland's best hard-rock drummer now for several years. He has the sort of fire in his belly that would make any greats such as John Bonham and Ian Paice smile. Randy was highly recommended to me and has a lot of experience. Like Koen he is a brilliant musician.” There are also two celebrated guests on the album, namely bassistRudy Sarzo(Whitesnake, Ozzy Osbourne, Quiet Riot, Dio, Queensryche) and drummerBrian Tichy(Whitesnake, Ozzy Osbourne, Foreigner, Billy Idol).
The album was produced byBob Marlette(Black Sabbath, Alice Cooper, Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie).
