Great hard rock band from Mannheim, Baden-Württemberg formed in 1987. “Promises” album by Aidean was released on the Break label in 1988. The songs are great – catchy and full to the brim with both guitar crunch and keyboard blasts. Coming at you from the Bonfire and Pretty Maids school of riffs, they are the typical European melodic rock band, with a big sound and a heavy handed approach.

The album starts with a good solid track “Promises”, “Tokyo” is a high peak in here, “Rocks You Up” apart from rock you it has a catchy chorus and definetely a highlight, “Fell In Love Again” is a strong ballad, “Livin’ Lovin’Losin’” is AOR, “Children Of The Night” seems 2 be their “song”, quite good indeed.. “Diana” & ”Do You call Again” are both faves, “Aidean Medley” is a crazy song, quite a filler honestly.

Unfortunately the band did not survive beyond 1990, despite some local success in Germany during 1988/89. The album was re-released in 2000 on the Point Music label, but this time with better packaging, three bonus tracks, and a nice booklet fold history of the band. This one isn't going to be around for too long, so get it while you can.
