Review

This band hailing from Quebec is one of the finest examples of hard rock combined with epic elements. Tension is much more heavy than Wishbone Ash (of the "Argus" era) and less heavy than Tytan but songs like "Tension" or "Friday" can be easily considered as heavy metal songs. The record contains at least 6 stunning songs with choruses sending shivers down your spine ("Easy money" and "Locomotion" are the only 'just good' songs). Its music can be described as a mixture of Triumph, Styx, Angel, Wishbone Ash, Asia (US), Rainbow ("Rising" era) so if you like that bands (you should be) go and seek for this gem everywhere.
