𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: I welcome back Ryder, this is their second single release for their upcoming album, to be released sometime in August, If "Slave To Love" and "Hard Time" songs, gives us this resounding & impressive sound, I can't wait to see what the debut release going be like and give us!


Slave To Love, is going be one those songs, once you hear the song, more than once, you going know this is Ryder, just clocking in at over four-minute mark, the guitar work and sound of raunchiest/catchest, that's both big, loud & dirty rock n' roll, markable solos and hooks, then there's James's voice and the rest of the music, that is remarkable and outstanding


Slave To Love acoustic, the opening has this breathtaking beauty of the unplugged pickings of the acoustic and bongo drums/unplugged drumming, with a warm-romantic feeling, then taking the influences (feeling of) of Bad Company and Bob Seger songs of 'Feel like making love' & 'Turn the Page', giving the listener one heck of a song that is beautiful and lyrically strong, I would love this version of the song, on the end of their debut release, this is a song, that as this feeling of finishing off album very stylishly-well, it has that element of pulling it off


For me, Ryder and their songs are going be a league of their own, with their signature sound, but keeping the spirit and homage of classic rock music & bands


Personally, opinion Slave to Love captures both the influences, spirit & heart of songs; like ‘Feel like making Love’, 'Can't Get Enough' by Bad Company and ‘Free Bird’ by Lynyrd Skynyrd, not forgetting the song 'Turn the Page.'


**For any Heavy rock/hard rock fans of all ages**

*full of energy* *outstanding & thoroughly enjoyable*

* entertaining & exciting heavy rock*
