Hard rock super group 7 Pounds of Pressure premiered its debut single last week.
The band — Steve Tobin, Michael J. Romeo (Symphony X), Hollywood How (vocals), Tom Miller (Symphony X) — debuted its first single, ‘Birds of Prey‘ April 6. Mike Orlando (Adrenaline Mob, Sonic Stomp) and Steve Brown (Def Leppard) also contributed their talents to the song.
The musical arrangement featured in the band’s new single presents a sound that will appeal to fans of the hair metal and hard rock that bridged the late 80s and early 90s. That is evidenced through Romeo’s guitar work and How’s soaring, operatic vocals.
According to a comment from Tobin, the song’s lyrical theme follows the album’s overarching theme about his father’s experiences in the military.
“My dad was an Army Paratrooper, an Airborne Ranger in the Korean war out of the 82nd, although the songs can apply to all military personnel and all people’s personal experiences,” he said. “It Isn’t pro war. It’s merely sharing some experiences.”
