Barros - More Humanity Please

Label : Rockshots Music | Archive under hardrock / aor

Release type: Full-length CD

Cor : Barros hails from Portugal, and is a band formed around guitarist Paulo Barros, who may be known to some from the band Tarantula. The music seems to be a bit of a mix of Malmsteen and Van Halen influences, with an eye for melody is a central point. The performance is tight and technically well done. Sometimes the sound could even be commercially attractive, almost poppy, but the technical, sometimes straight stubborn elements, coming more from the prog/jazzrock direction, make it all less easy accessible, but also more interesting. The vocals remind of something in the direction of Sammy Hagar more than once, so the associations with Van Halen can easily be made. Still, the technical elements, might go in the same direction, Barros cannot convince in the way these dinosaurs can (yet?). ‘More Humanity Please’ is a very decent piece of work, nothing more, nothing less.
