Surprises 2009: The Trophy - The Gift of Life

Band: The Trophy
Album: The Gift of Life (first album)
Genre: Hard Rock
Country: Germany

Mixing elements from classic rock, electronic, hard rock, alternative rock and even pop, the first album of The Trophy is a fresh sample of how to make good music with many influences taking mainly the Rock root. Though they are a new band, their components are not new in relation to music. The singer is Michael Bormann, ex Jaded Heart and great voice that gives a lot of strenght to the music of The Trophy. I think I wouldnt take it as a surprise if someone like Bormann wasnt singing here. The Human Fortress guitar and programmer Todd Wolf is the main head of the project and Marco Grasshof is the other part of The Trophy in the keyboards.
A must listen for fans of Bon Jovi, Def Leppard or Gotthard.
