Fair Warning is a hard rock group, founded in 1990 in Hannover, Niedersachsen, Germany. Founding member Ule W. Ritgen (bass guitar) was formerly known from the group Zeno. Lead singer Tommy Heart is also a member of Soul Doctor.
It's been only two years since exceptional German rockers around the charismatic singer Tommy Heart returned powerfully after a five year break with their reunion album Brother's Keeper. A sold out tour in Japan and some impressive festival shows in Europe followed. The came back with their long awaited sixth album, and it was named Aura. It's finest guitar rock music, written by bass player Ule W. Ritgen (9 of the 12 songs) and guitar hero Helge Engelke. The four musicians stepped their game up once again in terms of enthusiasm and spontaneity - never before the band sounded so self-confident and focused.
With “Aura”, FAIR WARNING found back to their old virtues even more than with the preceding album: Great song-writing, interpreted by four exceptional musicians who do not let anybody put them in stylistic chains. That is how they reach a unique authenticity.
Their sound is characterized by Tommy Heart's voice, which seems to have matured without aging. Engelke, Ritgen and Behrens pull out all the stops as well – on some songs they really let it rip, on others they play their instruments with great sensitivity and insight. Despite the large variety of musical styles the band sharpened their profile once again. This is FAIR WARNING – so distinctive and so unique.
As all the previous albums “Aura” too was developed in true FAIR WARNING style: For the production of their albums the four musicians always choose unusual locations with a very special atmosphere. With “Brother's Keeper” it was the mansion of a befriended record company CEO, this time the halls of an old Knight's manor guaranteed the „perfect vibes“ and artistic inspiration. You can hear all that on the album, note for note. As with “Brother's Keeper” the current line-up of the band once again is almost identical to that of the very first one.
Each one of these four put their stamp on the album: “Aura” lives and resonates – even when the music has long faded out...
Metal Heaven released “Aura” in Europe on the 24 of July, 2009. The limited first edition digi-pack version will include the two bonus tracks “It Takes More” and “Falling Reprise” plus a video clip “Making Of”.
