Florida-based duo of singer Shila and guitarist Alexis have put together a solid collection of tunes heavily steeped in the classic swagger that fans of the hard rock genre know and love. Think Van Halen, Zakk Wylde. Shila brings a deep tone and gritty attitude to songs like “Walking Solo,” which sports plenty of heavy riffs and a terse no-nonsense axe solo that’s note-perfect, nice and precise. Shila again shows that her voice is an ideal match for this kind of material on “Broken Love,” as she demands truth from her lover. Though “Fire of Mad- ness” is not a catchy as the previous two, we like the step-down chorus and the softer tone of her voice here. Overall, this is solid, straight-ahead, metal-clad rock.
