3 stars SYMPHONIC SLAM were another talent-rich band that never got a break. This pioneering Canadian prog band featured the talents of Timo Laine who created a real specialized talent with his use of a new gizmo... the 360 systems polyphonic guitar synthesizer. Essentially 'SLAM' deliver a rich keyboard based sophisticated poly synthetic nodes with support from John Lowery's drums and David Stone's keyboards. Musically this album covers a lot of ground with progressive rock standing out as the clear line with Jazz, AOR, Pop, 70's Classic Rock and Blues. A few years later after the break-up of SYMPHONIC SLAM, David Stone would join Ritchie BLACKMORE's "Rainbow". "Symphonic Slam" debut album contains some pretty eclectic material which reminds very at times very much of "Mirage" era CAMEL , FM (Canada) and with a degree of "Windchase" tossed in for good measure.
