IBio:

220 Volt is a Swedish heavy metal band, formed in 1979 by guitar players Thomas Drevin and Mats Karlsson. The band released albums on the CBS Records and Epic Records labels.220 Volt changed styles from heavy metal to hard rock after their third album.Formed during a mini golf game when Karlsson's ball went far off, was thrown back by Drevin who in doing so also injured Karlsson's hand. This led to a conversation, which soon centered about their common more metallic interests. The band started to play nation-wide in 1980, entered the studio for the first time in '82 and followed it up with supporting Heavy Load. The group gained more and more momentum until 1985 when all band members except Peter Olander had to do military service. Back together the group only lasted until 1992 when some members went on under the name of Voltergeist. The release of Lethal Illusion in 1997 sparked an interest for a reunion, which came true in 2002. Later, the band became dormant in 2008. In 2009 the band reformed occasionally and re-recorded the single "Heavy Christmas" for its 25th anniversary with storic singer Jocke Lundholm. In January 2013 the band returned with a new lineup.

Album:

Swedes 220 VOLT released three quite good albums at the '80s, with a classic Euro metal sound similar to the first Europe. But in the middle of the decade, their recording label saw a strong potential in 220 Volt to be launched on the prosperous American market.So the band decided to re-work their sound into a marvelous, Scandinavian-style Melodic Hard Rock."Eye To Eye" was the result, and believe me, if you never heard this album you're missing something great.With the extremely talented Max Norman (Ozzy, Coney Hatch, Y&T) producing, mixing and engineering, 220 Volt obtained a punchy, glossy, awesome polished sound ready to conquer the world.Released in Europe in 1988 "Eye To Eye" was pretty successful, with its consequent US / Canada edition the following year (actually there were few months in between) and different artwork.What can I say about the songs... all are killer, prime Melodic Hard Rock numbers.One of the highlights opens the album in the form of the moving "The Harder They Come", followed by another blast in "I'm On Fire".A favorite of mine is the AORish "Beat Of A Heart" with some Def Leppard on it, and then title track is one of the more elaborated MHR tunes ever produced by the band with a Treat / Return feel and a terrific chorus.Next, "Love Is All You Need" is a golden Scandi mid-tempo AOR power ballad with ethereal keys and skyscraper vocals.If these initial monster 5 songs does not hit you, you don't like this musical genre. Those are what '80s Melodic Hard Rock is all about.More quality follow with the catchy "Live It Up", 220 Volt show some of their Euro metal past on the heavier (but melodic) "Dog Eat Dog", while the pretty Americanized "Dangerous" brings to mind Ratt and alike.Then arrives another absolute highlight: "Still In Love", one of the best '80s ballad ever created and criminally ignored on every 'best of' ballad list. It's elegant, melodic, plenty of harmonics and a pristine production."On The Other Side" is a cool rocker only appeared in the American release, hence, it's very 'Californian' with hair metal choruses all over.The gem that is "Eye To Eye" needed a remastering, and it happened in 2003 with this now out of print, limited release by US label Power Play Records (officially licensed by Sony Music). The remastering is excellent, fuller and balanced.The reissue features 2 exclusive bonus tracks; the really worthy melodic hard rocker "Criminal" pumped by a huge rhythm section and driven by great guitars, and a remix of the diamond "Still In Love".It's a shame this remastered reissue is deleted now, as the album has become extremely hard to find. The only thing I do not like it's the re-vamped artwork that does not reflects the melodious music packed inside. I prefer the much better original European cover."Eye To Eye" is an awesome record, a must have in your Melodic Hard Rock / AOR collection.
