Watch out, Lauren Harris. Iron Maiden bassist, Steve Harris, has another musically talented kid, 17 year old lead guitarist George Harris. George’s band, Burn In Reason, is a relatively new project. There is a lot of promise there, but the songs are still a little undeveloped and shoddily produced for a grand debut on album— the whole thing rings of the bands from the New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) circa 1980. Iron Maiden was part of that influential wave. But George has a hard thing to top in the family competition. Iron Maiden’s first two albums were masterpieces. And sister, Lauren, has matured and honed her pop skills already.
With time and patience, however, Burn In Reason can turn into a professional hard rock band that will make any “punter” quite happy. Perhaps, surpass his family’s accomplishments. Who knows.
