Stephen
Another attempt to dig up the hard rock grave apparently was a fruitful effort. Z records found a long lost valuable treasure which had been buried for 20 years ago. A set of demo recorded by a Canadian rock quartet was lifted and cleansed before they released it for public consumption in 2004. Sonic X played a mudkicker, in-your-face rock n roll, like an illegal intercourse of Skid Row and Whitesnake.

From the very first, "News For You", Troy madly scream the lyrics accompanied with Falcomer's blazing riffs, a promising start indeed. He sounded like a gentle blend of Sebastian Bach and Sweet F.A's Steven David DeLong, gritty but gorgeous. "City of Sin" shot a gigantic rhythm to the sky before flying back with a ground-stampeding solo. I can feel a spine-chilling melody in "Two Sides To Every Story", a bit of Zeppelin's touch but the 80s glam weight is still heavy. "Lonely Heart" and "Obsession" both possessed a commercial potential to become a breaking hits if these were aired in the 80s. "Seasons Change" is an unsappy heartmelting power ballad with a clever acoustic opener before richly poured with an incredible solo passage and moving melodies. The last two tracks might be less-interesting for me but they still got their own charming strength.

Sonic X is a surprise catch, I remember blind-purchasing this several years ago and got hooked with their real hard rock outfit without compromising their premises with any pop influence. The production department is a low point as it's probably very hard to upgrade the sound quality from an old dusty tape, but I'm glad that they have been found, a hidden gem of the history you need to check out.
