    I discovered ARK through an email from Steve Vais' label, Favored Nations, a couple of months back.
    They are Sweedes, and their style could be compared to Dream Theater, in a certain way. They compositions are incredibly diverse and Jorn Lande the singer, has a voice that's out of this world, He has actually several voices to be true. He sometimes sounds a bit like Bowie, like Coverdale, and he can wail like you have no idea!
    Their record is called Burn The Sun. Check them out on their site at www.arksite.com. You can download three entire songs from that album from the site. But watch out, because one you do that, I dare you not to buy it.
    These guys are the shit as far as I'm concerned and I haven't been this excited about ANY music or band in years. ARK is a treasure of musicianship, talent, composition, and emotion.
    Please check them out at once and tell me what you think of them. I'm just stoked at the idea of sharing this great music with people who still have a set of functionning ears in this era of really bad Metal, Boy-band pop and rap.

    A chat friend of mine from Sweden sent me Burn The Sun (the song). I like it. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Sounds some like Queensryche too. In fact, the first sample listed, I would have thought was them if I heard it on the radio.

    Makes you wonder why the hell VH can't get a singer like that. That guy has some fuckin pipes. A little Bowie, a little Tate, a little Cornell.

    Yep, one incredible set of pipes.

    I found the CD at Best Buys, and made a copy of it that I put away just in case I ever lost it. I NEVER do that for anything—that's to tell you how special this band is to me.

    There are many great singers out there, most of whom are completely unknown by the masses, because they don't sound like the Cookie Monster on crack or a Scott Stapp clone. I hope Eddie will team up with one of these great singer/composers and bring VH back to the front, if DLR is not to be in VH again.
