I have to admit I have not heard of these guys before and didn’t hear their debut self titled album back in 2008, but after seeing some mixed reviews I think it’s safe to say these Stockholm, Sweden, hard rockers have taken a turn in the right direction because this album is fantastic!
Produced by Chips Keisbye (The Hellacopters), Badmouth have spent the last few years writing up some great tracks with them receiving some great reviews and Worldwide coverage. Formed as a studio project back in 2007 by Bassist Chris LeMon and Guitarist Mike Hill, Badmouth the band quickly developed with their debut release being produced by Paul Sabu (Alice Cooper, WASP) and you can clearly hear the influences with this band.
The band have done some great European tours and plan more in 2012 with them having shared the stage with Kingdom Come, LA Guns and Pretty Boy Floyd, Sator, Zodiac Mindwarp and The Poodles among others. So it no doubt these guys are getting a great fan base. In 2010 the band then teamed up with notorious producer Chips Kiesbye (Hellacopters, Sahara Hotnights, Millencollin, etc) and began work on this album.
‘Heavy Metal Parking Lot’ is an album that deserves a lot of attention, filled with great tracks, it is well produced, so if you are a fan of the older eras of Metal and Rock and love bands such as; Kiss, Def Leppard, Judas Priest and Iron Maiden then this is an album that needs to be added to your collection!
