Tunguska is the third release from Stockholm, Sweden based Melodic Rock/AOR band Treat, since their reformation in 2006.  Initially formed in 1981, the band had many major brushes with success, but found themselves thwarted at every turn, from membership struggles to being pigeon holed and unfairly compared to other bands, causing them to be overlooked.  In 2005, a compilation CD was released including Treat, and renewed interest in the band led to a reformation, and new music being created and released.

The current Treat lineup includes original guitarist Ander “Gary” Wikstrom, original vocalist Robert Ernlund, drummer Jamie Borger, keyboardist Patrick “Green” Appelgren, and bassist Pontus Egberg, with Egberg being the only member not to have been in a previous incarnation of the band.  If you’re familiar at all with the caliber of Melodic Rock being produced in the Nordic region of the world right now, the bar will undoubtedly be high for Tunguska to stand out.  But you won’t be disappointed.  The 12 tracks comprise over an hour of brand new, well produced Melodic Rock that measure up on all fronts with the best being released today.  Heavy, chops laden, lush vocal harmonies and keyboards, crisp drums, and soaring vocals put this release at the top of the must have list for any Melodic Rock fan.

    Stevie was a reviewer here at Metal Express Radio. He is currently the lead guitarist for Melodic Rock band Red Reign, based in Richmond, Virginia, USA. Red Reign toured with Tesla in 2017, and shared the stage with Dokken, FireHouse, Lita Ford, Kix, Quiet Riot, and others at various dates around the US in 2018. Stevie heard his first KISS record at the age of 6 and was immediately hooked on Rock and Roll guitar. Over the course of years his tastes evolved, graduating from KISS to Ozzy and Van Halen; and then into Hair Metal. Over time, harder and faster music drew him. Bands like Metallica, Pantera, and Anthrax led the way, and Killswitch Engage took him over the top. Stevie has a deep passion for the guitar, not only playing them, but building them as well.
