Fronted by lead vocalist Chris Ousey, between 1991 and 2011 British AOR / Melodic Rockers HEARTLAND released a total of eleven albums, but for the fans as well as for the critics, the best of the bunch is still their self-titled debut, originally released by A&M Records in 1991. HEARTLAND is a AOR band formed by former VIRGINIA WOLF vocalist Chris Ousey.HEARTLAND's debut was released in March of 1991 on A&M however by this time the popularity of the AOR / Melodic Rock scene was on the wane. A second album was released in 1995 through German label Long Island, which was ostensibly a collection of demo recordings.Escape Music, signed HEARTLAND up for a third album, 'III', issued in 1996. This album saw former EXPORT and IAN GILLAN guitarist Steve Morris joining Chris Ousey as the core of the band, with a fourth album, 'Bridge Of Fools', quickly emerging soon after the third.Following Steve Morris working with 'Dream Catcher' with IAN GILLAN & Chis Ousey working on side project THE DISTANCE with guitarist/song writer/producer Kenny "Kaos" Loney, the band release 1998 album 'Miracles By Design'.In 1999, the band released the album 'When Angels Call' as a thank you to their many fans old and new alike. The album was a collection of HEARTLAND classic's, new material and tracks from pre-HEARTLAND Project VIRGINIA WOLF, all delivered in an intimate acoustic style. In addition the 'Wide Open' album was re-issued during this year, as the original CD was no longer availble due to the demise of German label Long Island.The 2001 release 'As It Comes' saw a HEARTLAND line up of Ousey, Morris, bass player Tim Hewitts, keyboard player Steve Millington and drummer Steve Gibson.HEARTLAND completed the next album in late 2004 for an early 2005 release 'Move On' through Escape Music. Contributing guests included bassist Mathias Gregersen, the GRAND ILLUSION pairing of Peter Sundell and Per Svensson on backing vocals with the MERCYFUL FATE and FORCE OF EVIL credited Bjarne T. Holm on drums.HEARTLAND announced a fresh album for Escape Music in September 2007 entitled 'Mind Your Head' which is the bands tenth album.
HEARTLAND are basically relatively unknown in this country and that, although here with "Communication Down" the now eighth album of the Canadians is available. However, the two bandleaders and songwriters may be less unknown.Vocalist Chris Ousey earned his apprenticeship in the hard rock formation MONROE and later in Jason Bonham's troupe VIRGINIA WOLF, which won at least platinum with more than 250,000 albums sold in Canada and North America.Sixth of Steve Morris should / should be a term, since the man has at least recorded three albums with the IAN GILLAN BAND (this is the cross reference to the divine album "Dream Catcher" allowed).Exactly these years of experience brought both in HEARTLAND with a came out and washed with all the waters classic hard rock troupe. The eleven songs are catchy and memorable. Above all, the rocky "Imagine My Surprise", the harmonious "Follow Me" and the instrumental "Classical Blast" Of course, even such a disc should not miss the typical ballads.Are mentioned for a total of three slow pieces "The Bottom Line" Of course, Chris Ousey and Steve Morris did not record all the instruments on their own, but got as studio musician drummer Frank Baker and bassist Tim Hewitt (among others BOULEVARD) the keyboards shared Steve Morris and guest musician Dave Chapman,With "Communication Down" the demands of every hard-rock fan should be covered, which basically means nothing more than: listening, buying and being satisfied.
