Review By Brian Lee

Revolution Saints, the brainchild of the esteemed Journey vocalist/drummer Deen Castronovo, kicks off 2024 with a bang, releasing their latest album “Against the Winds” on February 9th, 2024. Following the success of 2023’s stellar “Eagle Flight,” Revolution Saints MKII, comprising Castronovo, bassist Jeff Pilson, and guitarist Joel Hoekstra, unleashes an album poised to reignite the passion for melodic rock.

“Against the Winds” is not just another album; it’s a declaration—a declaration of Revolution Saints’ unwavering commitment to delivering music that resonates deeply with their audience. From the opening track to the closing notes, the album is a journey through melodic bliss, guided by Castronovo’s captivating vocals and the virtuoso performances of Pilson and Hoekstra.

The band treats fans to a taste of what’s to come with the release of their single, “Against the Winds,” accompanied by a captivating music video. Revolution Saints, originally conceived to spotlight Castronovo’s remarkable vocal talents, continues to deliver on its promise with this latest offering.

Produced and primarily composed by Alessandro Del Vecchio, “Against the Winds” encapsulates everything fans love about Revolution Saints: enchanting melodies, powerful vocals, and hooks that linger long after the music fades. With this album, Revolution Saints showcases a heightened sense of cohesion, energy, and emotion, solidifying their status as giants in the genre.

The tracklist is a testament to the band’s versatility and talent, featuring songs like “Changing My Mind,” “Fall on My Knees,” and “Show Me Your Light,” each brimming with infectious melodies and poignant lyrics. “Against the Winds” is a journey through the highs and lows of life, punctuated by anthemic choruses and soaring guitar solos.

While Revolution Saints MKI left an indelible mark on the melodic rock scene, the introduction of MKII brings renewed energy and vigour. With Castronovo at the helm, joined by the exceptional talents of Pilson and Hoekstra, the band is poised for even greater heights.

Pilson’s solid basslines and Hoekstra’s masterful guitar work perfectly complement Castronovo’s powerhouse vocals, creating a sound that is both timeless and contemporary. Del Vecchio’s production expertise ensures that each track shines, while his contributions on keyboards and background vocals add depth and texture to the album.

“Against the Winds” is a testament to Revolution Saints’ enduring legacy in the world of melodic rock. With this album, the band reaffirms why they belong at the pinnacle of the genre, delivering an experience that is equal parts inspiring and exhilarating. For fans old and new, this album is a must-listen, showcasing the best of what Revolution Saints has to offer.
