3 out of 5
I didn´t expect much of this album because I thought PlanetHard would be just another average melodic hard rock band but I was wrong, their 3rd album "Now" is a solid modern hard rock affair influenced by bands like Alter Bridge, Skid Row, Ozzy and Gotthard.
The production is good and I´m a fan of their riffs, I think this is proof that a mix of 80´s rock and modern metal works just fine.
Highlights : "The one", "Inglorious time", "Don´t say goodbye".
