Bio:

Shy are a British metal band formed in 1980 under the name "Trojan", hailing from Birmingham, England.Formerly known as Trojan, Shy featured vocalist Tony Mills, Steve Harris (guitars) (not to be confused with Iron Maiden's bass player, Steve Harris), Paddy McKenna (keyboards), Mark Badrick (bass) and drummer Alan Kelly. Their first album, called Once Bitten...Twice..., was released in 1983. Initial reports from Kerrang! were positive, however, a reporter[who?] was sarcastic to the band in the interview that would follow. After the release, Mills dropped his David Bowie-esque make up, and Mark Badrick was replaced by former Trouble bassist Roy Davies.Shy made their major label debut on RCA Records with 1985's Brave the Storm. This release gained success despite the single "Hold On (To Your love)" being disqualified from the charts, as early copies included a shrink-wrapped T-shirt. Reviews from Kerrang! were more positive, comparing Mill's soaring vocals with those of Geoff Tate, vocalist of Queensrÿche. In the eighteen months that preceded the band's third album, Shy toured with Bon Jovi, Meat Loaf, Twisted Sister, Gary Moore and UFO.The band's 1987 album, Excess All Areas, was recorded in the Netherlands with producer Neil Kernon. The album featured Shy's biggest hit, "Break Down the Walls", co-written with Don Dokken. The album reached Britain's top 75, with Metal Hammer magazine being appreciative. 1989 saw the release of Misspent Youth on MCA. The album, produced by Roy Thomas Baker, was promoted with American and European tours.By 1994, Mills had been replaced by vocalist Jon Francis. The band's 1994 album, Welcome to the Madhouse was released in Japan by Phonogram but failed to get distribution elsewhere. The band released a live album in 1999, recorded in Europe, and two albums containing previously unreleased songs, Let the Hammer Fall and Regeneration.Mills returned to the band in 2000. In 2002, Shy recorded and released an album featuring Mills, Unfinished Business which saw Man drummer Bob Richards replacing Kelly.In 2005, Shy released Sunset and Vine on the MTM Music label. In addition to Mills, Harris and Davis, this album featured Mills' ex Siam colleague Ian Richardson on rhythm guitar, and keyboard player Joe Basketts who had previously worked with Mills on his solo album.In 2006, Mills met with Norwegian rock act TNT, and announced he was leaving Shy to take up the vocalist slot, empty since the announced departure of Tony Harnell. Shy supported TNT on their final tour.Shy originally had planned for Tony O'Hora to replace Mills. However, Lee Small, formerly of Surveillance and Phenomena, took the helm for a handful of gigs before parting company with Shy in January 2009, he is now once again Shy's vocalist. The band's latest album, entitled simply Shy was released in Japan in September 2011 on the Marquee Avalon label, and in Europe in October on Escape Music. Ian Richardson (previously in Siam) has since left Shy but provided some additional rhythm guitar on the latest release. Steve Harris died of a brain tumour in October 2011.Steve is irreplaceable and the present line-up is the final one.Template:Says Who

Album:

SHY's second album "Brave The Storm". This out of print Japanese Cardboard Sleeve LTD mini-LP replica includes 6 bonus tracks and delivers a fan-damn-tastic sonic output.Originally released in 1985, "Brave The Storm" was the second album from this British AOR / Melodic Rock institution.The band, which featured powerhouse vocalist Tony Mills was a latecomer to the NWOBHM scene, and were one of the first to draw that fine line between traditional melodic metal and arena rock.Produced by Tony Platt, "Brave The Storm" was Shy's major label debut, and resulted something of a breakout album for the band thanks to leadoff single "Hold On (To Your Love)".While many fans prefer other Shy records as favorite, for me "Brave The Storm" is among their finest moments.The whole album is a textbook example of superbly crafted melodic rock / AOR with a metal edge. Catchy hooks and abundant keyboards are paired with somewhat dramatic, love-themed lyrics and of course Tony Mills' stratospheric vocals.It's just such a pure mid-80s album, and one that immediately transports you back to that era.Leading the attack, Paddy McKenna's synths are set to arpeggiator mode for 'Hold On (To Your Love)', a chorus-laden special with big vocals both lead and backing from all concerned.There's more keyboard goodness in the offing as 'My Apollo' is an absolute drama scene-stealer. Not even a Oscar Award can outdo these boys on this album.There are some wondrous ballads here as well and the first of these is the effortless 'Reflections', a gorgeous well-worked piece that builds up slowly to a crescendo.Returning to harder melodic territory, 'Keep The Fires Burning' is the obvious anthem here, and a good one it is too. As the whole album, it sounds pretty Scandinavian to my ears, adding that unique British touch as well.'The Hunter' is a personal favorite with that punchy action-movie spirit all over it. Next up is the title track. Again, those classy keyboards give this song a huge boost. A mammoth song for me personally over the years, and as anthemic as it gets.'Wild Wild Woman' borrows an early Europe styled neo-classical riff though the song is not as rabid as the songtitle would suggest.Another keeper is the wondrous 'Caught In The Act (Of Love)', topped by some out of this world vocals by the helium powered Tony Mills. The acoustic guitar fills from Steve Harris are another feature.Finishing up the set, 'Was I Wrong' is another top-notch effort. Fiery and energetic and a glorious end to a superb record.The bonus tracks on this Japan edition are really good too, including a wonderful extended version of 'Hold On (To Your Love)', the solid b-side 'Strangers in Town' and live versions of 'Two Hearts' and 'Behind Closed Doors'.Then there's exclusive remixes of 'Deep Water' and 'Give Me A Chance' (taken from the band's first album), both refreshed and much better than the originals."Brave The Storm" received a batch of great reviews, while the band itself traveled on the back of support gigs with UFO, Gary Moore, Bon Jovi and Twisted Sister.Two years down the track and Shy would reveal perhaps their coup de grace: 1987 'Excess All Areas'. But "Brave The Storm" is a great record in its own right, and this Japanese version the one to own.
