V12 – RIDE ON THE ROAD [1912 Unreleased Album]
Digitally Remastered, with 16-page booklet with lyrics, photos and band history.
V12 were one of the most acclaimed Portuguese Heavy Metal bands of the 80’s, with an album released in 1990 by Polygram Records, an accomplishment very few Metal/Hard Rock bands had at the time in the country. With the change of singer after the album, Celia Lawson joined V12 and the sound shifted to a more Hard Rock style. These are the Demos for the planned second album, that never happened in the end of 1992. A time where Hard Rock was becoming disposable to major labels. This release elevates V12 as part of the Portugal Hard Rock elite and serves as testimony of an album that could break barriers internationally, with dynamic female vocals, quality guitar work and classy songwriting.
