Genre: Hard Rock
Reviewer: Eric Compton
Revertigo is a new act composed of vocalist Mats Leven (ex-Malmsteen, Candlemass), guitarist Anders Wikstrom (Treat) and drummer Thomas Broman (Electric Boys, Michael Schenker). Both Leven and Wikstrom have contributed to Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and bring that chemistry to this project. It's fluid, precise hard rock that should appeal to fans of Jorn, Pink Cream 69 and Pretty Maids. The chorus pieces are fairly large, situated between blocks of groove and some spacious keys. Kudos to Wikstrom's strong solos, adding just enough ear candy to separate the solid vocal arrangement.
