    Interesting……will have to give a listen. I herd the album sounds a little like bad co. A good band that bernie mardson was in was back in the late 80’s called “alaska” you should check out.

    Very interesting! Micky Moody together with Laurie Wisefield, who did a great Job in Wishbone Ash (“There’s the Rub”-album).

    More or less the 4th band created by M&M based on Whitesnake…is there a meaning? No…the only good thing is they are making an album with new songs but stop puttin’ a snake in every project…and from what I can hear they sound like just another Whitesnake bad copy…I need something more peculiar and personal to listen to but most of the classic rock bands keep on copying themsleves to the end…I think you could have your own style and keep on writing diversify and, most of all, inspiered great songs…in the last 10 years this happen always less often…

    Sounds good to me. Something to look forward to next year! I always preferred the 70s/early 80s Whitesnake anyway of all their line-ups & if Snakecharmer sound a little like that, then no problem!

    Love the music, faultless. Much better than anything that Coverdale has done in years (sadly).

    Not keen on the vocal, though. There are enough rock vocalists already that sound as though they are straining with bowel problems. They need someone with a distinctive voice that is immediately identifiable when you switch the radio on (like Gillan, RJD, Ozzy, Jon Anderson etc.).

    Certainly will be checking out the album – the samples are great.
