Avalon biography
Canadian act AVALON was formed in 1976, initially consisting of Myles Hunter (vocals), Manfred Leidecker (bass), Robert Holtz (drums), Bob Deeks (guitars) and John Fenton (guitars). Deeks and Fenton opted to leave while the band was still in it's initial phase however, and was replaced by Tullio Granata (guitars) and Brian Sim (guitars). And it was this second version of the band that hit the studio to record and release their full length debut Voice of Life, issued by London Records in 1977.

Following two years of heavy touring Avalon called it quits, the members going their separate ways. Some 20 years later additional recordings by this act briefly resurfaced when a CD-R production containing 6 previously unreleased tracks by the band was sold as Avalon II, but this disc never saw an official release.

3 stars Avalon (don't be confused with countless bands with same name) are from Canada, and is a AOR/ prog act with one album in their pockets released in 1977 named Voice of life. Not much is known about, but the music is pleasent most of the time, with same attitude as Styx, Druid or Starcastle. The music as I've said is pleasent, even far from great, AOR combined with progressive rock arrangements, the best examples are first two pieces Celebration Day and Mother Russia, great guitars, nice keyboards and a pleasent voice from Myles Hunter. All in all anice release, that is totaly forgotten, but I think that fans of afrmentioned bands can check this one out. The album was re isssued on CD by canadian label Pacemaker in 1995.

Thanks to windhawk for the artist addition.
