SIGN X is the successor of Hamburg-based band CHALICE which has been alive and kicking for almost one and a half decades and put out seven albums. When frontman Gino Naschke und keyboard-player Axel Hoffmann left, they changed their name to SIGN X. New vocalist Sebastian Zierof, who successfully impersonated legendary German singer UDO LINDENBERG in a huge and long-lasting musical production, does a really good job and adds lots of quality to the sound and songwriting. The QUEEN-like “Rain“ as well as the epic “Crush“ are reminiscent of the mighty TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA. In addition to that, the EN VOGUE cover “Free Your Mind“ is brave but well done. And there is one CHALICE-song, too, which has been re-visited (“Chasing The Wind“). Cool also to have Hammmond sounds by new keyboardist Michael Jotzer here and there. “Like A Fire“ is a treasure box with lots of details to be discovered but – and that’s important foremost – it’s a hard rock record with balls. Oliver Scheer’s guitars make absolutely sure it has. Cool band, cool record!
