From Rat Pak Records:

In a partnership that has been years in the making, GRAMMY® Award winning bassist David Ellefson and acclaimed metal vocalist Jeff Scott Soto have joined forces for an all-new collaboration, Ellefson-Soto. The band follows the tradition of successful individuals that joined forces to create memorable music: David Coverdale & Jimmy Page, Tony Iommi & Glenn Hughes, Tommy Shaw & Jack Blades, Michael Sweet & George Lynch to name a few examples. The metal duo is joined by Andy Martongelli on guitar and keys and Paulo Caridi on drums to unleash their debut album “Vacation In The Underworld”. The album features eleven tracks and three bonus recordings that demonstrates why Ellefson-Soto are considered legends by many in the metal world.

From the fiery guitar lead of the album opener “Vacation In The Underworld” to the prog-metal fury of closer “Rise To Win,” Ellefson-Soto have created a debut that is sure to capture metal fans from all over the globe. Combining different styles of metal, songs like “Sharpen The Sword,” “The Revolution” and “Live To Die Another Day” showcase the various influences Ellefson-Soto have picked up over their four decades in music. Jade Etro from the Italian power metal band Frozen Crown makes a guest appearance on “The Day Before Tomorrow.” Steve Conley and Ken Mary from Flotsam and Jetsam perform on the title track “Vacation In The Underworld.” “Vacation In The Underworld” ignites an inimitable hybrid of thrash firepower, rock swagger, and anthemic arena-ready thunder.

JEFF SCOTT SOTO “Damage Control” – 5 Reasons To Buy This Sterling Album

Posted in Hard Rock, hard rock albums, Heavy Metal, melodic hard rock, melodic rock, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on April 30, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

JEFF SCOTT SOTO – This past March 23rd, Jeff Scott Soto’s fifth full-length album, Damage Control, was released via Frontiers Records. Melodic Hard Rock, 80’s Arena Rock, Rock and AOR fans should find no problem embracing the songs on Damage Control; I’ve embraced them and I will tell you why:

01 – Jeff’s voice. Whoa. Harmonious, melodic and so damn smooth. Rockin’ cool smooth. If I can put Joe Lynn Turner on a pedestal all of my Rockaholic life, then Jeff Scott Soto shares that same pedestal.

02 – The Songs. It always comes down to quality and I don’t care if it’s Extreme Metal or Melodic Hard Rock that I’m listening to… the songwriting has to be standout. Damage Control could easily have been titled: 11 Standout Songs.

03 – Inspirational. Wether it’s the lyrics, the vibes or a combination of both, Damage Control makes me feel good and feeling good is something I usually invite into my Rock ‘N Roll soul. Give A Little More and Look Inside Your Heart are my top two exhilarating listens, on this album of melodically fortified and memorable Hard Rock.

04 – Quality Musicianship. Um, do you think Jeff Scott Soto would surround himself with anything less? This is an artist who has Yngwie Malmsteen, TalismanJourney and Trans Siberian Orchestra on his prolific resume, therefore, Damage Control is an album that’s built-to-last and stand the test of Rock ‘N Roll time.

05 – One Of The Best. In my Metal opinion, Jeff Scott Soto is one of the best male vocalists I’ve ever listened to. It’s not all about Heavy Metal with Jeff’s career and his voice can carry through a range of music genres. Damage Control is a significant piece of work for Jeff Scott Soto; this album doesn’t go over any Pop Rock deep end and it Rocks like 80’s Journey meets Bent Out Of Shape era Rainbow.
