The Swedish five piece with five previous releases under their belts are combination sound of a rough AC/DC-meets-Accept style Latest offering “Full Pull” from the band who signed to Nuclear blast in 2011 spent no time waiting around to rise to the hype with an awesome album such as this.
Starting with “Midnight oil” the journey begins with the traditional theme of most glam/stoner bands with vocal melodies that sound like a deeper Axl Rose and the sweeping guitars of stadium rock loudness this is a killer opener. The combination of classical heavy metal and hard rock of the late 70s / early 80s formula works well for the album as track’s two and three [“Full pull” and “Running Away”] play simultaneously. The well oiled machine produce another classic track with “All fired up” which instantly puts in mindset of being at a gig and having a great time.
“Rolling Home” is the epitome of the party spirit with a rhythm that makes you want to dance. It’s oozing with rock grooves, from the highly stylised guitars right up to the classic UFO styled piano play out at the end it’s a great homage to the past. The AC/DC vocals continue through “In the heat”, “High on the hog” and “Rush hour” which all flow into each other in storybook fashion.
“Free riding” is a stand out track with the opening of buzzing guitars and memorable chorus that makes you want to sing along with it. This same spirit washes over “Gutterview” which depicts another side to the story leading to the finale “Warriors”. The final track Which starts off like a slow bluesy number soon turns into a rock classic. The album flows very smoothly with the manifesto message of “Music is my life” running through the tracks. Above all it is a fun collection of new slices from the Swedish quintet, this is album that lives up to expectations album that works fantastically.
