Brimming with confidence and justifiable pride Dutch rock band Vengeance have announced the release of their latest album Piece Of Cake:
"People can expect what to my ears is the best Vengeance album to date," declares guitarist Timo Somers,
"the songs are a nice blend of old school Vengeance (think Arabia) and some more modern sounding songs. This time the instrumental side of the band is really outspoken, it features a lot of nice intros, solos and instrumental pieces. And to top it off, Leon sounds better than ever."
Somers promises eleven gripping new compositions:
"Raintime is the fastest song on the album. The song kind of sounds like a Malmsteen song with Leon on vocals. Double bass, big chorus and a fast guitar solo are the keywords."
The most typical song is the title track Piece Of Cake.
The most unusual song is Back To Square One, a blues rock ballad in the vein of Gary Moore.
"I don't think a lot of people know this side of Vengeance," Somers suggests, "but it showcases our more soulful side."
Piece Of Cake will be released on 28 October 2013 (Germany: 25 October 2013, USA/Canada: 5 November 2013), before Vengeance embark on their European tour with labelmates Mad Max:
"This is a double tour together with Mad Max to celebrate our new albums being released on the same day. I'm pretty sure we'll be on tour in spring 2014 as well - we're working on that at the moment."
