The official video for the song "Hero" from U.S. power metal act JACK STARR'S BURNING STARR can be seen on KNAC.COM right HERE. The track is taken from the band's new studio album, Stand Your Ground, which will be released on August 25 via High Roller Records. The effort, which is almost 80 minutes long, was produced by Bart Gabriel (with whom the band already worked on the previous album, Land Of The Dead), recorded and mixed by Kevin Burnes (DOKKEN, RAVEN), and mastered by Patrick W. Engel at Temple Of Disharmony Studio. The release will be available as CD, double LP, and digital download. Like in the case of the previous two BURNING STARR albums, its cover artwork was painted by Ken — legendary artist known from his iconic works for bands such as RAINBOW, KISS and MANOWAR.

"It's an old-school-type metal album with modern production and great songs," Starr says about Stand Your Ground. "In my opinion, it is one of the best metal albums in the last twenty years. I think that if we could go back in a time machine and put out this album in 1988, it would sell millions of copies, but even though it is 2017, I think it will still do very well."

Regarding how Stand Your Ground compares to its predecessor, 2011's Land Of The Dead, Starr says: "I think the new one is more diverse and has many more influences and also it is much longer. I think I am playing better guitar solos, Todd Michael Hall is singing better, Ned Meloni on bass is playing the best of his career and the comparison that comes to my mind is Steve Harris. Ned is playing with passion and speed like Steve Harris and also getting a great sound like Steve Harris. And as far as Rhino, there is nothing to say because he always plays great and this album is a continuation of this incredible drumming style that he has perfected.

"My favorite song on the album is "Stand Your Ground", the title cut, I have played this one for a few people and the reaction has always been the same. It seems that the listener is very surprised that even though the song is eleven minutes long, it passes very quickly and is not repetitious. "Stand Your Ground" has so many twists and turns and changes within the same song, it is like a mini symphony!"

Stand Your Ground track listing:

  • "Secrets We Hide"
  • "The Enemy"
  • "Stand Your Ground"
  • "Hero"
  • "Destiny"
  • "The Sky Is Falling"
  • "Worlds Apart"
  • "Escape From The Night"
  • "We Are One"
  • "Stronger Than Steel"
  • "False Gods"
  • "To The Ends"
JACK STARR'S BURNING STARR was formed in 1985 by a founding member of VIRGIN STEELE, Jack Starr. After releasing four albums in the '80s — Rock The American Way (1985), No Turning Back! (1986), Blaze Of Glory (1987) and the self-titled one (so-called "orange album" from 1989) — the band returned with a new lineup featuring Starr, Ned Meloni (bass; JOE LYNN TURNER, DEVIL CHILDE, PHANTOM LORD), Kenny "Rhino" Earl (drums, MANOWAR, ROSS THE BOSS) and Todd Michael Hall (vocals; RIOT V), and released the well-received comeback album titled Defiance in 2009. Two years later, the band released their next studio album, titled Land Of The Dead, which was met with great reviews by critics and fans alike.
