RED DAWN is the kind of band that comes along only once in a great while.A band with impact, punch and power, but also melody, style and taste. Five rock and roll veterans with a chemistry that shines through on every recorded cut...and in every note and nuance of their stage assault.At the center of the storm is keyboardist/producer David Rosenthal, a Berklee-trained musician who came to prominence as a member of the influential supergroup, Rainbow. David contributed to Rainbow's last three albums, helping to shape such hits as "Stone Cold", and "Street of Dreams". Not one to stand still, David moved on to a series of tours with the likes of Cyndi Lauper, Robert Palmer, Little Steven, and is currently touring with Billy Joel on the "River of Dreams" World Tour. This mammoth tour also includes 33 sold-out stadium show featuring Billy Joel and Elton John together. Additionally, David racked up an impressive string of studio credits, including work on Steve Vai's "Passion and Warfare", and Whitesnake's "Slip of the Tongue".As David spent more time in recording studios, he developed a strong interest in the process of music production. Eventually, this interest spawned a project involving a select group of players - who formed the basis for what would become RED DAWN.David's notoriety in Japan drew early support from Tack Takahashi, who as Director of Tours for UDO Artists (Japan's largest music promoter), had booked David's previous tours of Japan. With Tack's assistance, David Rosenthal landed a Japanese deal with EMI/Toshiba. David hand-picked his band and produced their first LP "Never Say Surrender." The album has been very well received in Japan, and has already received international acclaim in the press. "Never Say Surrender" was recently released in the UK on the NOW & THEN record label, and is again enjoying unprecedented critical acclaim along with brisk sales.Besides David Rosenthal, RED DAWN features the talents of four other experienced musicians: Larry Baud, an extraordinary vocal discovery, has been a veteran of the Mid-Atlantic club circuit...Tristan Avakian, with his remarkable technique and melodic feel, could be the guitar hero of the '90's...Bassist Greg Smith has been the rock-solid bottom for such luminaries as Alice Cooper and Vinnie Moore...and Chuck Bürgi, also a former member of Rainbow, has additionally provided the beat behind Hall and Oates, Meatloaf, Blue Oyster Cult and Brand X.
One of the essential, must have albums in AOR / Melodic Hard Rock history has been reissued: we are talking about "Never Say Surrender", by RED DAWN, the awesome band put together by keyboardist, composer and producer David Rosenthal.David's multi-faceted career has taken him to studios and stages across the globe with many of the most prominent artists in the world.Besides his long tenure as keyboardist and musical director for Billy Joel, he has also worked with Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, Robert Palmer, Whitesnake, Steve Vai, Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow, Cyndi Lauper, Yngwie Malmsteen, and dozens more.But he has also arranged (uncredited) lots of famous melodic hard rock albums.Rosenthal critically acclaimed work with Red Dawn was released around 1993 / 94 only in Japan, but in fact recorded during the late '80s / early '90s.Now Rosenthal has made it available again, professionally pressed in the USA, and under his own label. You can get it from his website and in Europe through AOR Heaven Records.This album is the perfect balance between elements taken from the AOR rocking side, Pomp, Melodic Hard Rock and commercial-era Rainbow mixed together into a masterpiece.Yes, "Never Say Surrender" is a 5* Masterpiece for the genre.All songs are brute diamonds, highly melodic, filled with killer keyboard stabs, powerful melodic guitar riffs, a bombastic rhythm section and a distinct lead singer owner of a potent, broken voice.
