Presto Ballet
Peace Among The Ruins (SPV Records)

By: Mike SOS

Kurdt Vanderhoof is best known for his fretwork with Metal Church, but who knew (until his solo efforts) how deep rooted he was in '70s arena rock? Presto Ballet is the name of this retro project, as Vanderhoof and crew (many returning from his self-named group), put a hard rock spin complete with dominant keyboards, high-pitched vocals, and compositions that may remind you of works by bands like Boston and King Crimson. The best part of PEACE AMONG THE RUINS? It was recorded completely in analog, so the retro feel is not only limited to the songwriting, but the entire project as well. Feel the warmth and pick this one up if you miss the crackles and richness of your album collection.
