Tragik is the creation of Phil Vincent, amongst others vocalist with bands like Legion and Forest Field.
And indeed, this new work ‘Come and Get It’ is published by the label Rock Company, owned by Peter Cox, leader of Forest Field who participates in the guitars here. It is the sixth release of Tragik and to all the fans of the genre, a sublime work of melodic rock, with the voice of Vincent having a touch of Kip Winger.
There are songs for all tastes: from the initial melodic “Where Would I Be” and “Fallen Angel” outstanding ballad “You Are The One” through “Feed My Soul” with more hard rock elements in “Smoking Gun” It gets more progressive and heavy but still melodic in “Rescue Me / Rise to The Sun,” a 12 minutes song with a piano and inbetween a turn to a pop song, with many overlapping keyboards. “Someone’s Gonna Hurt You Tonight” is a wave of Hagar Van Halen era, while “Can’t Slow Down” is Tragik at their heaviest.
“When Darkness Fall” is more melodious, where the piano carries the rhythm and the chorus is most catchy. “Closer to the Sun” sounds like a Dokken light and the disc ends with “No Words”, an instrumental that begins with a guitar lick and towards the end evolves to one guitar with natural background sounds.
The only downside could be that the battery is programmed but they are so well made that you hardly notice. For fans of bands like Boston, Foreigner and Winger, ‘Come and Get It’ is a must for this year.
* small note, the drums are not programmed but played by Phil but still thanks for this awesome review!
