The long awaited new studio album "Into The Great Unknown" from the celebrated Swedish rock band H.E.A.T via earMUSIC. After one and a half years of intense song-writing, with guitarist Dave Dalone (aka Sky Davis) back in the mix, the band went on a questionable trip to record an album in Thailand, once again with Swedish Grammy award-winning producer Tobias Lindell. With 10 top songs in their cannon, H.E.A.T entered the heavenly Karma Sound studios in the outskirts of Bangkok to record what would become the fifth studio album. Once again the band continue the musical landscape with an innovative, highly explosive and refreshing melodic rock sound and an unforgettable collection of fantastic new songs.

When H.E.A.T first released the singles leading up to their new album I was extremely hesitant to purchase it based upon those tracks. However, after giving the samples of the album a listen on iTunes, I decided to give the whole thing a shot. The album did take me several spins to grow on me, and even after a month, there are several songs like "We Rule" and "Time is on Our Side" that I still can't really stand, but overall the album has some pretty top notch melodic rock on it. I especially love the belting sounds and production work on tracks like "Blind Leads the Blind," "Best of the Broken," and "Do You Want It?" The rest of the album is fairly close in quality to these tracks, and fit together quite nicely when listened to chronologically, but some may be turned away by the increase of the keyboard sound on the album. It didn't bother me in the least, but then again, I'm an '80s junkie who misses the good old days like that.
Overall this album is actually a really solid record for one of the best bands to come out of Sweden to date. I know some may gripe and cry about the increase in the keyboards on the album, but come on guys, this band is actually a melodic rock band that dabbles on the harder edge of the genre. They have never claimed to be Metallica or anything of the sort, and I'm just fine with that, and with the album as a whole. I am pretty close to positive that if you give this album a shot, you'll soon like it as much as I do.
