“Age of Fear” is the debut album from Canadian melodic rock band Storm Force and it was released by Escape Music on 25th January. Notably, the band features guitarist Greg Fraser who was a founding member of Brighton Rock and also played in Helix. The track “Because of You” was included on the Friday NI Rocks Show on 3rd January and “Age of Fear” on the Show on 14th February.




Greg Fraser was one of the founding members of Brighton Rock back in 1982 and he went on to release three albums with the band before it broke up in 1992. He was then a member of Helix for four years, although he didn't play on the album “It’s a Business Doing Pleasure” released during that period. When Brighton Rock reformed in 2001, Fraser was again part of that line-up. In 2008 he also released the first Fraze Gang album alongside Brighton Rock bass player Stevie Skreebs. They released a second album in 2012.

Storm Force is principally a collaboration between Fraser and vocalist Patrick Gagliardi who was previously in the band Surface Tension. They are joined by bass player Mike Beradelli and drummer Brian Hamilton. There are guest vocals on two tracks from Serena Pryne (from Serena Pryne and The Mandevilles) and guest keyboards from Rein Knol.

About “NI Rocks Recommends”

This is purely a personal recommendation and some information about the artist and the album; not a traditional ‘review’. Most of the recommendations posted are for albums that have been sent to us digitally by the record label or promoter. Quite often I’ve also bought the album on CD or vinyl as well and sometimes I just feel the need to post a recommendation for an album that I’ve bought myself. Essentially these are albums that I like and which I’ve played some tracks from on the Shows on Rock Radio NI!
