For eleven years now, the British band Vega has been delighting us with its melodic hard rock. With six albums, the combo is not the kind to fall asleep on its laurels. One year after the famous "Grit Your Teeth", the band offers us an eagerly awaited "Anarchy And Unity".

Vega does in the happy hard rock. Some people might have disappointed by the band's tendency to introduce some slightly pop impulses and catchy choirs in profusion in its compositions. Perhaps they will be convinced here, because, without denying the core business that made their success, the boys have, on this new production, muscled their words. 

Vega settles today in the category of the heavyweights of the genre such as H.E.A.T., Eclipse and W.E.T., formations which know how to ally melodicity and energy. Nick Workman offers us here again, in the line of a Grönwall (ex-H.E.A.T.) or a Sammet (Edguy, Avantasia), an irreproachable vocal performance. Accompanied by a solid rhythmic base and a pair of guitarists who, even if they don't linger on the solos, fill the space with talent. The singer magnifies the already cleverly composed choruses, supported as usual by choirs that would not disavow the Def Leppard of yesteryear. As a result, the listener is irrevocably lured and can only sing with the band the hits flooding this "Anarchy And Unity". 

On this opus of twelve tracks, 'Beautiful Lie' starts the debates in a thunderous way, with its riff reminding the 'Beat It' of Michael Jackson. It is followed by 'Sooner Or Later' with a hyper-galvanizing chorus that really smells of Eclipse's work and 'Ain't Who I Am', bouncy and dynamic. The furious 'Bring The Riot', which exudes Def Leppard, is just as memorable as 'Live For Me', a ballad built in the Avantasia style, from which emerges, for once, a long solo of almost a minute. The rest of the work is in tune, marked by the seal of dynamism and musicality, each discovered piece triggers a furious desire to listen to it one more time.

The listening of this seventh opus of Vega is a beautiful occasion to fill up with energy and good mood. Galvanizing, this "Anarchy And Unity" is a new stone to the edifice that these British devils erect with application and determination. Some would even dare to say that these young men are now mature enough to take up the torch that the Sheffield band seems to have left behind...
