theNAME comes from Haarlem in the Netherlands and this is their fifth album since 2002. “Unchained” contains 12 songs and the first impression is very good. The vocals are very good and also technically it sound good. The production from the album is certainly done very well.

The album starts with ‘Draw the Line’, a solid rock song. The female vocals are really nice, this lady can sing very well. Musically its fits very well together.
