5.0 out of 5 stars Lightning strikes twice May 19, 2007
Format:Audio CD
In 2005, the fates (and the good people at Frontiers Records) brought together two of metal's most powerful vocalists - Symphony X singer Russell Allen and journeyman Jorn Lande (ex-about a dozen other bands) for a special project called Allen/Lande: The Battle. The album featured songwriting, production, and guitar work by Last Tribe's Magnus Karlsson. The result was melodic metal perfection and one of the year's best albums. Two years later it seems that lightning can indeed strike twice, as both vocalists have returned for another album, this one called the Revenge.

The Revenge brings both powerhouse vocalists back together for another dozen high quality melodic metal songs, again courtesy of Magnus Karlsson. Beyond providing some very excellent guitar work on this album, Karlsson once again proves why he is considered one of the best songwriters/producers in the melodic metal genre. If anyone is better than Karlsson, it would have to be Pink Cream 69's Dennis Ward, who is also on board mixing the Revenge. With such a stellar team in place, expectations for the Revenge are understandably high.

Fortunately, the Revenge lives up to those expectations. Both singers have been busy lately (Allen with the long awaited Symphony X album Paradise Lost and Lande with a pair of compilations), but their performances here are as solid as ever. Each vocalist has a unique and dynamic style, and hearing them perform together is a vocalist fan's dream come true. Fortunately close to half of the songs on the Revenge feature both singers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Revenge sweet revenge - Hard Rock Strikes Back June 21, 2007
Format:Audio CD
If you liked Allen-Lande's first album The Battle, be aware that The Revenge tastes much better. This is in fact top-noth hard rock with some AOR performed by two of the best singers today and a disc that will become one of your favourites after one listen, so great it is. The abundant catchy melodies, vocal lines and choruses wont leave your mind so soon, believe me.

Russell Allen is the singer of prog metal Symphony X besides being main singer for Arjen Lucassen's Star One project. Jorn Lande sang with Malmsteen, ARK, Company of Snakes (Whitesnake tribute), Masterplan and a dozen others. Where Allen adds an almost bluesy feeling and roundness, Lande comes with agression and that Robert Plant's "rudeness". Together they duet like I have never seen before. And you see tons of catchy vocals, cheesy choruses, hooky guitar riffs and inspired solos (courtesy of the great Magnus Karlson), all with that melodic hard rock positive optimistic attitude. The Revenge flows naturally from one song to another and there is not one of them unworthy of being a smash hit. If it were the 80's, The Revenge would figure on the world's charts for weeks, earn a platinum album, MTV would be filled with its videoclips, the singers would show up at David Letterman and so on.

THE REVENGE is the mindblower hard rock opener with one of the catchiest singalong chorus I've ever seen. OBSESSED alternates melodic guitars and somewhat agressive vocals. VICTORY has a humalong ultramelodic guitar line and a duet chorus that will catch you straight through the heart. MASTER OF SORROW is one of the best ballads in rock's history, amazing feeling and power. WILL YOU FOLLOW mixes some poppy punk with modern In Flames and the result is very good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Consistently Brilliant July 22, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Magnus Karlson is a song writing machine and the performances of Lande and Allen are more individual this time round (when compared to The Battle where you could not tell them apart). Great album another triumph.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blow Your Mind!! May 25, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is another stellar and exceptional performance from all who were involved in this project. I was anticipating this cd since its annoucement last year. I knew I had to get because I have the 1st album and that sounded so good. And now finally have this cd in hand it's an extraordinary experience. I have since listen to this entire album 9 times and am extremely happy with the outcome of this album. Melodic and heavy at its best. What else can I ask for when this is a TEN star product. All credits goes to MAGNUS KARLSSON for writing, composing, playing and executing this to perfection. Russell Allen and Jorn Lande is the icing on the cake. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Miles away from The Battle !!! January 3, 2012
Format:Audio CD
The Revenge is much better than The Battle. Just listen to the songs ! Obsessed, Under the waves and others songs have great and defined melodies. You don't find this in the same level on the CD The Battle.

5.0 out of 5 stars GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!! February 5, 2010
By T. Reid
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this awhile back and I enjoyed it then but I listen to this now every so often. It still holds up in my book. This is a solid Hard Rock/Metal album. Nothing to WOW you but SOLID material. Great lyrics, catchy riffs and catchy choruses. This is a concept album that has to do with a relationship and how it goes wrong. Title track "The Revenge" is awesome. "Master of Sorrow", "Will You Follow" are incredible songs. "When Time Doesn't Heal" is a masterful track and it's my favorite song. Great and powerful song to end the album with. Russell Allen & Jorn Lande sing with so much emotion in their voice that sometimes I'm Mesmerized. It inspires me when I listen to them sing. These two guys can sing man, no question. For all the singers out there like me; put this album in the CD player, sit down and get your pen and pad because school is IN. Magnus Karlsson did a fantastic job with this album. I like it better than the first album. It has a harder edge to it. I don't like anything that Lande has done outside of this album. He rocks here though. Allen, always spectacular. People who like Allen or Lande in other bands should pick this up.
