Editorial Reviews

Limited two CD edition includes bonus CD featuring their 2008 debut album. 2010 sophomore album from the Swedish AOR/Melodic Rock outfit. The production on this album is state of the art. Not a surprise considering the band loves the big sound of Toto, Journey and Foreigner. Each of the 13 tracks is crafted with incredible songwriting skill, the album is full of potential hit singles and classic songs for fans of AOR. Tobias Sammer from Edguy and Avantasia guests on the song 'Black Night'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Second time around, and just as awesome! October 8, 2011
Format:Audio CD
After taking the world (OK, maybe just Sweden and Japan) by storm with their self-titled 2008 debut, Swedish melodic rockers H.E.A.T came back in 2010 with their eagerly-anticipated follow-up album Freedom Rock. Expectations were high, and the band definitely did not let fans down with this one.

The first H.E.A.T album is all but impossible to top, but the band pretty much turned everything up to 11 with Freedom Rock. The hooks are bigger, the melodies are catchier, the production is slicker, and the vocal harmonies are just HUGE. They even got Edguy/Avantasia mainman Tobias Sammet to make a guest appearance on the bombastic "Black Night." This was Kenny Leckremo's last album with the band, and he really went out with style. His vocals are incredibly powerful, especially the harmonies, though he doesn't sound quite as smooth here. Listing highlights is kind of pointless when every song is a potential single, but "We're Gonna Make It," "Shelter" and "I Know What It Takes" definitely stand out. As for comparing Freedom Rock to the debut, it's sort of like comparing Journey's Escape to Frontiers. Both are amazing, and each has its own character.

As with the debut H.E.A.T album, Freedom Rock is easy to recommend. If you're a melodic rock fan, your collection is not complete without this album. Whether you're a fan of classic AOR bands like Journey and Survivor, late `80s rockers like King Kobra and Giant or modern melodic rockers like Brother Firetribe and Outloud, you will become a H.E.A.T fan before the first song is over.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! The only word that comes to me July 19, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I'll admit that I'm more a fan of party-rock bands like Poison, Warrant, Bon Jovi and Motley Crue than I am of bands like Toto, Survivor and Journey. However, upon buying H.E.A.T's sophomore album "Freedom Rock" I was stunned at just how great this album was. Literally after just one listen I became a converted fan of the band and anxiously await the next saga of the H.E.A.T musical journey.

"Freedom Rock" is very much a continuation of the bands debut album. The songs are all radio quality melodic rock, and the production is simply out of this world remarkable. I never would have believed that in 2010 I'd be reviewing a band that sounds this talented and sounds so much like the bands I loved growing up. The album is just as amazingly well crafted, and Kenny Leckremo's vocals are a treat all in themselves. This guy has a truly amazing voice for this type of music. While every song is noteworthy, the highlights to me are "We're Gonna Make It To The End," "Who'll Stop The Rain," "High On Love" and "Black Night."

H.E.A.T embrace everything that made the 1980s the best musical decade in history; these guys are just that talented and great. It's a crying shame that just about nobody here in the U.S. will ever hear, or for that matter care, about such an amazing band. A couple more albums like this and I may be asking for dual citizenship to the great nation of Sweden!

It would not be an exaggeration to claim that Swedish band `H.E.A.T' took the melodic rock world by storm in 2008 after the release of their self titled debut album. Their musical style of 80s influenced AOR/melodic rock delivered with intensity and youthful attitude is perhaps their musical trademark.I suppose that anyone who appreciated their debut would expect that the band keep their style and sound unchanged and simply deliver more of the same great stuff on their second album `Freedom Rock'.

Indeed you could say that `Freedom rock' is a natural follow up to their debut, this time featuring 13 tracks of class A AOR/melodic rock while the quality remains consistent throughout the album; and the potential melodic hits come in numbers: `We're gonna make it to the end', `Danger road', `Stay', `Nobody loves you like I do' and `Cast away' are radio friendly and musically substantial compositions with the potential to appeal to a wide range of audience.
The line up features lead singer Kenny Leckremo (who puts on a magical performance throughout the album), the very effective guitar partnership of Dave Dalone and Eric Rivers, the rhythm section of bass player Jimmy Jay and drummer Crash plus keyboard player Jona Tee.

After playing the album a good number of times one might realize that the band's approach on this second album is a bit different than their debut: Leckremo seems to be singing slightly higher (which makes the performance even more intense) while the lead guitar parts tend to be more extensive with lengthier solos and a good number of twin guitar melodies.

Overall an amazing melodic rock/AOR album that proves that H.E.A.T has a lot more to offer than a memorable debut; `Freedom Rock' brings the band another step closer to the top.

`RockHard' Greek magazine (issue 52) comments on the album: "An almost perfect sound that goes beyond Swedish melodic rock... A great band that might as well develop into a classic"
