English:

Q5 was founded in 1985 and established its reputation with, a year later, the release of ‘Steel The Light’, but they never became big. Later, the singer and the guitarist founded ‘Nightshade’, but from 2009’s Headbanger’s Open Air and especially 2014’s Sweden Rock; it became clear that there still was an interest in Q5. 2016 is the year of the come-back with three members from the original line-up, raw shouter Jonathan, guitar wizard Rick and bass player Evan.

The opener is a mid tempo heavy warming up with a chunky guitar solo, but ‘Hellas’ is a shining epic heavy metal piece. A bit further, the title track is also a catchy piece with epic nature. ‘Tear Up’ speeds up, ‘Hell’ has a catchy hook, while the long ‘Prisoner’ is dark and brooding. In ‘Unrequited’ there’s a passage of pure Ostrogoth. ‘One Kiss’ is a bit cheesy, but ‘Fear’ is a speedy piece again. After the great guitar in ‘Setting Sun’, the acoustically starting ‘Warrior’ is another fine song. An enthralling instrumental introduces the closing of the album with the catchy ‘Get Next To You’.

Delicious return to the HM eighties!


Nederlands:

Q5 werd in 1983 opgericht en vestigde zijn reputatie met het, een jaar later uitgebrachte, ‘Steel The Light’, maar de echte erkenning bleef uit. Later werd door de zanger en de gitarist ‘Nightshade’ opgericht, maar vanaf 2009’s Headbangers’s Open Air en vooral 2014’s Sweden Rock bleek dat er nog steeds interesse was in Q5. 2016 is het jaar van de comeback met drie leden uit de oorspronkelijke bezetting, ruige shouter Jonathan, gitaarwonder Rick en bassist Evan.

Is de opener een heavy mid-tempo opwarmer met fikse gitaarsolo, dan is ‘Hellas’ een schitterende licht epische heavy metal brok. Wat verder is het titelnummer ook een catchy brok met epische inslag. ‘Tear Up’ is speedy, ‘Hell’ heeft een catchy hook, terwijl het lange ‘Prisoner’ broedend en donker is. In ‘Unrequited’ zit warempel een stukje pure Ostrogoth. ‘One Kiss’ is wat cheesy, maar ‘Fear’ is weer een ruige speedy brok. Na het schitterend gitaarwerk in ‘Setting Sun’, is het akoestisch beginnend ‘Warrior’ ook een prima song. Een verrukkelijke instrumentaal nummer leidt het afsluitende catchy ‘Get Next To You’ in.

Heerlijke terugkeer naar de HM eighties!
