    ˝Danney Alkana was formerly with Cock Robin, a California band that at times featured Misunderstood legend Glenn Ross Campbell. As something of a guitar maestro, he later had some success on the classical-inspired metal guitar circuit and released and album called “Rock the Bach” in 1999.˝

    ˝The Alkana album “Welcome To My Paradise” is an impressive array of inventive and textured hard rock / metal which can be as melodic and atmospheric as it can be fast and heavy. The production is great, Danney really let loose with his double-tracked guitars and his harmonised leads are all over it, but tracks like “Paradise” and “Montezuma’s Sweet Revenge” are also speedy, chugging riff-fests. The rest of the band was singer Jack Rucker (later known as “Damien King I” in Warlord mk.1), Craig Williams (bass) and Don Mclaughlin (drums), they were based in San Bernardino, CA.˝
