Harem Scarem to release new album ‘Change The World’ on March 6th
Canadian melodic rockers Harem Scarem featuring lead vocalist Harry Hess and guitarist Pete Lesperance will be releasing a new studio album titled Change the World on March 6, 2020.
The following message was posted in part on Harem Scarem‘s Facebook page earlier today:
“Harem Scarem band returns on March 6, 2020 with their new album, “Change The World“. First single, ‘The Death Of Me’ will be released on January 23, 2020.
Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of Harem Scarem‘s last studio album United:
“The background vocals drive this one. For those who are unfamiliar with the Harem Scarem recordings, live drummer and lead vocalist for Jake E. Lee’s Red Dragon Cartel, Darren James Smith is the basis for many of those classic Harem Scarem background vocals. Having heard Smith sing for so many years, it is easy to point out Smith’s fantastic voice and it would just not be the same without his talents. Meshed with Hess’ amazing lead vocals, it is a part of Harem Scarem‘s sound that really can’t be duplicated. “Indestructible” ends off this musical masterpiece. It has a more modern feel to it, but it’s not passé like many of today’s radio songs. I attribute this to the musicianship of all the members in the band. It’s knowing how to truly craft a finely written song with musicianship and having the supreme production of Hess and Lesperance.
So as I close out, I am almost out of breath. For me listening to an album and dissecting its contents really takes something out of me. United had that effect on me. In some ways it is like jogging ten kilometres. It’s hard work, it can be tedious, but in the end you feel really invigorated. For me, it’s about getting an accurate view and trying to understand what the artist is trying to convey to its listeners. This takes time and effort to really focus on its contents. Listening to the little things that the artists have put in there to develop something they feel very strongly about.
The thing I really hope that people get out of this review is that maybe I have noticed something they normally wouldn’t or that I have been descriptive enough to have those reading actually picture the music in their head. I think the majority of us don’t take the time to put that much into actually listening. If we, the listener, put the time into listening closely, like the artists do in creating, maybe this age of modern music would be a little different. I took the time to give a decent and accurate review of Harem Scarem’s United album. So if you enjoy this style of melodic hard rock created by fantastic players, go out, purchase this album and really listen closely. You will not be sorry.”
