THE SOUND OF BREAKING FREE
by Tony aka The Atomic Chaser @ The Dedicated Rocker Society/All Access Magazine

'The Sound Of Breaking Free' the stunning debut release from Finnish rockers, The Ragged Saints is an extremely well-written melodic rock album. The Ragged Saints are Markku Kuikka on vocals, Tomi Julkunen on guitars, Toni Bite on guitars, Jukka Hoffrén on bass and Miikki Kunttu on drums. The Ragged Saints serve up an impressive debut outing. Every song is a winner, and before too long you'll find yourself singing along to just about every track. Album opener, "The Sound Of Breaking Free" starts things off with a bang, and is easily worth the price of the album all by itself. Other highlights of the album are, "A Place Where I Belong", "New Beginnings", "Love Won't Fade Away" and "While The World Is Burning" which fall in the melodic hard rock (bordering on melodic metal) category. "Never Walk Away" contains catchy guitar riffs, one of the album's most addictive choruses and an energetic vocal performance filled with emotion and confidence. "The End" is the perfect album closer. It carries an epic atmosphere vibe of mid-career Europe and early Pretty Maids. Tomi Julkunen and Toni Bite demonstrate amazing guitar work and Markku Kuikka delivers a true vocal exhibition. 'The Sound Of Breaking Free' is an knockout of a release that will be loved by melodic rock fans, while it will surely be respected by open minded metal fans as well. Fans of Journey, Foreigner and Toto will probably love this too. The Ragged Saints should be in every melodic rock fan's collection.

- Highly Recommended

The first single in september, album out in the shops in october

newsAs everything is now ready with recording, mixing and mastering we decided to release the first digital single from the forthcoming album as a free download! It will be remixed and remastered version of the title track "The Sound Of Breaking Free". Full album will be out in October, official release date will be announced soon.

Official release show at Bar Bäkkäri

newsYes, it's getting closer folks! The official album release show will be at Bar Bäkkäri on October 25. It's friday so mark your calendars and polish you best dancing shoes. It will be a great night, we will play the whole album and more importantly; you can buy the album straight from the band :-)

Demos for the second album on the way!

newsBack to 70's style album release cycle? That would be cool but let's be realistic; every second year is the way to go :-) We have already started writing and demoing the second album so there's a good chance to get it out in late 2014 or early 2015. Still at early stages with song writing but we're sure it will be another killer from The Raggedy Five.
