Nürnberg's hotly tipped Melodic Rock band FRONTLINE, founded in 1989, received an enormous amount of positive press coverage upon the release of their 'State Of The Rock' debut in 1994. The band at this stage numbered lead vocalist Stephan Kämmerer, guitarist Robby Böbel, bass player Thomas Reiss and drummer Stephan Bayerlein. Pre FRONTLINE guitarist Robby Böbel had featured on TALON's 1986 record 'Vicious Games'. After the mysterious release of an acoustical follow up in 1995 entitled 'Two Faced Acoustics' FRONTLINE returned to action in 1997 with the Japanese issued 'Heroes'. On this album the band could be found with the revised line-up of vocalist Stephan Kämmerer, guitarist / keyboard player Robby Böbel, BONFIRE guitarist Chris Lausmann, former WASTE and BAKER, CRAMP & ANDERSON bass player Thomas Bauer with drummer Rami Ali.

However, since the record emerged Chris Lausmann hooked up with the revitalised BONFIRE, with whom he has recorded the comeback

Stephen
The eight album of German's melodic rock act, Frontline, was released in 2006, following the 2004's "The Seventh Sign", with no change of formation. A brief description of what Frontline offered in "Circles" is probably a throw of Def Leppard, a trace of Giant, and a drop of Journey, all wrapped in a darker mood. While the combination looks promising, the songwriting and the whole rhythm section suffers from anything memorable. Kaemmerer's voice was mostly reverbed , giving a hint of mysterious nuance to their music, but his delivery is just too flat, calm, and average. Boebel's guitar fill is acceptable but somehow it just felt too safe. The bass and drums are played the way they supposed to play with no extraordinary experimentation.

There are couple of great tracks here such as the great midtempo "Save Me", a stunning power ballad, "Did You Ever (Taste The Pain)", and "Don't Run Away" with its nice chorus. Several other songs just flows decently, for example, "No One", "It Is You", or "Say What You Have To Say", I think they should've done better. And with half of the albums can be categorized as filler or passable tracks, "Circles" is definitely for diehard fans only or anyone who’s fond of later-day modern/dark-edge melodic rock style.
