Bio:

Moving from Hamburg, Germany, to Los Angeles, USA, in 1983, vocalist Lenny Wolf teamed up with Bruce Gowdy (guitar) to form Stone Fury. Adding Rick Wilson (bass) and Jody Cortez (drums), they signed to MCA Records and debuted the following year with Burns Like A Star. The album offered traditional blues-based hard rock, similar in construction to Led Zeppelin. Wolf’s vocals were modelled very closely on Robert Plant’s, both in pitch and phrasing, which provoked accusations of imitation. Let Them Talk was more restrained and employed a greater use of melody and atmospherics. Unable to make a breakthrough in the USA, Wolf went back to Germany and later formed Kingdom Come on his return to the USA in 1987. Gowdy, in the meantime, formed World Trade.

Album:

This album is a best of five songs selected from each of their two albums, but it is a collection of beautiful melodies that, no matter how many times you listen to it, you will find it difficult to find a reason why this band didn't sell.The Stone Fury name may have been half-buried by the sheer impact of Lenny Wolf's deadly sin on KINGDOM COME, but for those who know the enduring brilliance of the number "Break Down the Walls", it will be an indelible part of 80s metal. For those who know the enduringly brilliant number "Breakdown The Walls", it will be an unforgettable part of the 80s metal scene.The band was a project of German-born Lenny Wolff with American guitarist Bruce Gordy, and can be compared to their contemporaries DOKKEN in terms of their similarities in origin and musicality.At the time, the influence of Robert Plant was not yet pointed out, but rather their melodic excellence attracted attention.The band ideally embodied the fading of Europe and the glitter of 80's metal, and the pleasant sense of speed seen in the aforementioned 'Break Down The Walls' was quite shocking in an era before the term 'melodic hard' had taken root.The first album, 'BURNS LIKE A STAR', from 1984, is impressive for its melodies, which are considerably more prominent with more aspirational power than DOKKEN.It's not without a Zeppelin approach already, but it's so frustrating that the only way to describe it in words is the standard "catchy and melodic".On their second album, Let Them Talk (1986), the band quickly changed course to a more modern, hard-pop sound.I don't know why they couldn't ride the wave of the scene with their last album, but I guess they were aiming for a breakthrough with this album, which includes some 80's New Wave-like numbers, depending on how you listen to it, but I feel they completely lost their way.Still, listening to the album again now, there is no doubt that it was a really well-made album, and it highlights the uniqueness of the band.I personally feel that the album boasts an ephemeral beauty, with Bruce's solid guitar playing, who would later play in the likes of WORLD TRADE and UNRULY CHILD, and Lenny's metallic, high-tone vocals that were just about to run away with the times.
