SYE need no special introduction. They were formed in Toronto, Canada in the early 80's by the charismatic guitar player and singer Bernie Carlos and after releasing some demo tapes, they released their debut album in 1985 entitled "Turn on the Fire" and three years later the MAJESTIC follow up named "Wings of Change" that is definitely one of the most criminally underrated albums of all time, as it features frenzied power metal with razor sharp riffs and killer vocals.
We had the pleasure to locate the band founder, Bernie Carlos and he was kind enough to license both albums to us to release on limited edition CD, featuring a total of 10 (!) bonus songs coming from demo tapes of the band, all of them, previously unreleased.
Both CD reissues come with lyrics, photos and band story and the sound is bombastic as it was remastered at the highest quality.
If you are not familiar with this band's music, check out some of the songs on this teaser video and be prepared for a relentless sonic assault.
This band was formed during the 1977 in Toronto, Ontario. Rapid Tears has always been ahead of their time, offering up a good mix of rock and early metal, influenced by NWOBHM, that hasn’t lost any of its punch with the passage of time. These guys weren't afraid of playing fast, with an alarmingly crude production that gives it a dose of credibility and proves these guys had studied their British counterparts well. Songs like the fast opener "Survival", the anthem "Headbang", the epic "Tomorrow" and the hard rock influences of "Keep Runnin'", worth listening to. The American heavy metal passes here too.
