DARE – Sacred Ground

Veröffentlichung: 15.07.2016

Stil: Melodic Rock, AOR

Label:  Legend Records




DARE veröffentlichte in ihrer 30 jährigen Karriere sieben Alben und ein Live-Album. 1986 gründete THIN LIZZY Keyboarder  Darren Wharton zusammen mit Gitarrist Vinnie Burns (ULTRAVOX, TESLA) die Band DARE, aber schon nach 2 Alben trennten sich die Wege der beiden Musiker, im Jahre 1992. Es gab einige Pausen, denn Darren tourte zusammen mit THIN LIZZY um die Welt tourte. Es dauerte ganze sechs Jahre bis wieder mit „Calm Before The Storm“ ein weiteres Album veröffentlicht wurde. Nach einigen weiteren Veröffentlichungen stieg Vinnie Burns vor 7 Jahren mit dem grandiosen Album „Arc Of The Dawn“ wieder bei DARE ein.

Mit ihrem neuen Album „Sacred Ground“ gibt es endlich wieder ein Lebenszeichen von der Band aus Manchester. Das Album startet dann auch direkt mit einem Highland inspirierten Rocker, der sofort zu Herz geht. Das ist ja schon mal ein optimaler Einstieg und es soll noch besser werden. Sehr gefühlvoll geht es dann mit „I’ll Pray For You“ weiter. Bei diesem Song kommt man sofort ins Träumen und die treibenden Parts bei diesem Stück gehen sofort ins Blut und natürlich ins Ohr. Man bekommt zudem von Darrens Stimme eine Gänsehaut nach der anderen. Mit wunderbaren Pianospiel untermalt dringt der melodische Rocker „Strength“ sofort ins Blut. Die Songs bis zum jetzigen Zeitpunkt besitzen alle die Leichtigkeit, die ein melodischer Rocksong benötigt und genau dafür steht der Name DARE. Bei dem nächsten Song „Every Time We Say Goodbye“ handelt es sich um eine waschechte Ballade, die neben Pianoklängen auch noch ein sehr gefühlvolles Gitarrensolo beinhaltet. „Days Of Summer“ klingt gegenüber dem voran gegangenen Song richtig rockig. Ich finde es super wie DARE die Streicherelemente in diesem Rocksong mit Gitarren verknüpft haben.

Mit größtenteils akustischen Gitarren wurde der Song „Until“ versehen. Mir gefallen vor allem die mehrstimmig gesungenen Parts in diesem Song. Zudem bemerkt man das Gitarrenkünstler Vinnie Burns sein erstklassiges Gitarrenspiel immer im Dienst der Band, oder besser gesagt in den Dienst des Songs stellt – Wahnsinn! „On My Own“ ist für mich der Ohrwurm schlechthin auf dem Album. Der rockige Sound des Songs geht sofort ins Bein und somit ist dieser Song eines der Highlights auf dem Album. Ein Song den man sofort in Verbindung mit DARE bringen kann ist wohl „All Our Brass Was Gold“. Bei diesem Midtemposong kann man sich sehr gut an die Schaffensweise der Band erinnern. Ein sehr interessanter Song ist „You Carried Me“. Das mit akustischen Gitarren versehene Lied besitzt einige Highlights. Zuerst kommt bei diesem Midtemporocker wieder das Highland-Feeling auf und das Gitarrensolo von Vinnie ist einfach nur fantastisch. Ein wenig schneller wird es dann bei „Like The First Time“, aber trotz allem geht dieser Song auch wieder sofort zu Herz. Ein absoluter DARE-Song ist wohl „Along The Heather“ denn er zeigt wirklich auf worauf es bei DARE ankommt – Gefühl, eingängige Melodien und ein Gesang, der mitten ins Herz trifft.

Ich kenne und die Alben von DARE und ich habe bis zum heutigen Tag an keiner ihrer Alben Schwachpunkte bemerkt. So ist es auch mit ihrem neuen Album „Sacred Ground“. Das Album strotzt nur so von gefühlvollem melodischem Rock mit tollen Melodien und stimmigen Texten. Das Album lebt vor allem durch die wandlungsfähige Stimme von Darren Wharton, der mal sanft oder in rockiger Manier immer den Songs Leben einhaucht. Sie sind sich treu geblieben und das ist gut so. „Sacred Ground“ ist ein absolutes Muss für Melodic Rock und AOR Fans.
