Dreamer - Full Metal Racket (Image) 1991
Former Daniel Band vocalist Dan McCabe formed this short lived band after the demise of Daniel Band. Unfortunatley, this type of "classic" heavy metal sound was out of vogue in 1991 as thrash and/or glam had taken over the scene, so the disc didn't do real well for him. "Full Metal Racket" disappeared almost as fast as it was out. Still, the music isn't really bad at all. Straight forward heavy metal with clean, soulful vocals that is similar to McCabe's old band, if not a bit heavier and more aggressive. As with Daniel Band, McCabe's riffs aren't overly technical or complicated, but they work well. Some of the guitar work here reminds me of Dokken. "Full Metal Racket" is a solid, Canadian, hard rock album.
