Unleash the Fire is the fifteenth studio album by the American heavy metal band Riot, now called Riot V, released on August 27, 2014 through Steamhammer Records in Europe. It is Riot's first album not featuring long-time guitarist Mark Reale. Todd Michael Hall - lead vocals. Mike Flyntz - guitar. Don Van Stavern - bass. Frank Gilchriest - drums. Bruno Ravel - production, mastering. Joshua Block - co-production, engineer.
For me, Unleash The Fire is the best album of the year 2014, even better than Immortal Soul from 2011, maybe even the greatest Riot release since the end of the 80s. If the music industry was fair, Riot would reign in the big league with Priest, Manowar, Helloween and other greats but since it's not, they remain that everlasting true and honest-to-the-core band that I respect and love so much. But Tony Moore would then part ways as well as tragedy striking with the passing of lone original member Mark Reale in 2012. Both Mike & Don Van Stavern wished to carry on with Riot in Mark's honor, and after the good graces from his family would change the moniker to Riot V (recognizing that this was another new era without any founders for the first time).
The album, Unleash the Fire, is a touching hard hitting tribute to Reale. While Reale might be gone, the Riot riffs and melodies he wrote are very much alive on this new album. Riot are one of those bands that carries a long history with them. The group were originally formed in 1975 by Reale in New York. Despite constant line-up changes, the band were able to churn out three studio album with original singer Guy Speranza. The band’s third album, Fire Down Under, is considered by many to be an underrated hard rock gem. Speranza left in 1981 and was replaced by singer Rhett Forrester. Overall, Unleash the Fire is an impressive album. After listening to this album, I feel that Riot can indeed go on without Mark Reale. Somebody has to play these songs, and that is what this new band is exactly doing.

Riot V’s album wouldn’t be worth it, if it wasn’t for the individual musicians coming through. Mike Flyntz and Don van Stavern have written yet another great album, and their general merit is sine qua non. Drummer Frank Gilchriest has already revealed his credentials on the Army of One album back in the day (and in recent live concerts), and brings on the table the excess tension this band needs. Vocalist Todd Michael Hall is not Tony Moore, but it is common ground for those who have seen him live (like yours truly), that he’s a perfect fit for the band. Given the quality of Unleash The Fire, it’s only fair that Riot V should go on for as long as they can, merely because there are people who need their music.
