FOOTSTEPS "Together With A Vengeance"

“Together With A Vengeance”

Forrest Records

August 2010

Review by Steve Smith

If you’re looking for a nice mellow album that you can slide into gently, “Together With A Vengeance,” the debut album from Footsteps, isn’t it.

What Paul and Marcie Forrest, the husband and wife team who record as Footsteps, have produced is a collection of mature, tasteful, intelligent, occasionally elegant music that rocks. On the other hand, they also capably deliver gentle, swaying balladry on tunes such as “Stone Soldiers” and “One of a Kind.”

The couple makes music that is always engrossing, devoid of a single filler cut. Their music often mixes 60s psychedelic influences with contemporary arrangements and production values.

Paul Forrest wrote most of the 13 cuts (his wife wrote or co-wrote three songs) and produced the album and the duo plays all the instruments.

Paul Forrest’s crunching rhythm guitar power chords are straight from the Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath) and Martin Barre (Jethro Tull) school, while his burning solos bring to mind the Los Angeles band, Spirit, and the scorching yet tasteful style that the band’s late, great guitarist, Randy California, brought to such late ‘60s and early ‘70s classic albums as that group’s 1968 self-titled debut album and 1970’s “Twelve Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus.”

Both Forrests, with years of professional singing behind them, are accomplished singers possessing highly melodic, pleasurable voices. Marcie Forrest adds surprising grit to hard rockers such as “The Iron Gates of No,” and “The Here and Now.”

“Together With A Vengeance” is a solid debut and well worth checking out.
