Bio:

Dare is a Rock band from Oldham, England, fronted by Thin Lizzy keyboard player Darren Wharton. They formed in 1985, and have released eight albums to date, including the #48 UK album Blood from Stone.Dare was formed in 1985 by Darren Wharton after Thin Lizzy had broken up. By 1987, Dare had gained a local following in Oldham and they were offered recording contracts from A&M, RCA and MCA Records. The band's debut album, Out of the Silence, was released in 1988 on A&M Records. Dare had minor success in Europe, but album sales flagged and the band was dropped from their label after their second album Blood from Stone (1991).The band have had four songs in the UK Singles Chart: "The Raindance" (#62, 1989), "Abandon" (#71, 1989), "We Don't Need a Reason" (#52, 1991) and "Real Love" (#67, 1991).The band continues to this day, but have departed from their hard rock and melodic rock roots, and now feature a heavy celtic influence.The original lineup featured Brian Cox who played keyboards on the records Out of the Silence and Blood From Stone. Cox later played with D:Ream before becoming a particle physicist and science communicator.Dare appeared at the Firefest Festival in October 2010 and are set to appear again this year.

Album:

A year after it's original release, the album was Remixed and re-released, along with new artwork via Legend Records, with a revised track listing an the addition of previously unreleased track, 'Cold Wind Will Blow'.The songs sound a lot punchier than the earlier release and the CD plays a lot louder.DARE third record but in its quite rare “Calm Before The Storm remixed UK version“. Few Melodic Rock / AOR fans are aware that this album – originally released in Germany in 1998 – received a very different UK release a year later.“Calm Before The Storm” is one of the favorite Dare albums by their fans. In the ’90s, Melodic Rock / AOR was not exactly the most popular genre among the recording companies / labels. But there was a German label – MTM – which proudly served as platform for many bands in this musical style to get their albums released.Originally appeared in 1998, “Calm Before The Storm” marked Dare’s return to a lovely AOR sound. The album immediately was received by fans of the genre with open arms world-wide.Then band leader Darren Wharton decided to give the record a UK release, but not just a ‘reissue’.A year after the original release, for its British version “Calm Before The Storm” was remixed along with new artwork; the cover photo received some kind of a golden ‘relief’, and the album’s title is printed using Greek alphabet letters.Released via Legend Records, an extra, previously unreleased track was included (“Cold Wind Will Blow”) as bonus.“Calm Before The Storm remixed UK version” sounds a lot punchier than the earlier release, and the guitars come out brighter.For me, this album is essential in your Melodic Rock / AOR collection, so if you already got it, better check if you have this ‘remixed UK version’ as well, as not only sounds different but also it’s a collectors item.
