Desert Dragon Press Archive:


The Vocalist for the band is incredibly dynamic and can range anywhere from a husky bluesy tone to an emotionally driven high pitched tone of voice. His voice changes as the patterns of music change. And as each song progresses the listener is provided with dense layers of music.
The album kicks off with an instrumental song called “Desert Dragon”. While listening to this song I kept expecting the lyrics to start, but they never do. The song can easily be something you would hear on a movie soundtrack. Starting with this track the listener can tell that they are in for an interesting listen.
There’s a good almost early 90’s heavy AOR feel, but a modern prog hard rock thing going on too.  Good clean production, the vocals have a good clean mid-range sound but this guy can escalate and hit those high notes too.

"Before the Storm is Desert Dragon’s third album."
