Kick Ass
January 2007
Released: 2006, Perris Records
Rating: 3.5/5
Reviewer: Celtic Bob

Hailing from Switzerland, Backwash offer up a fine dose of 80's style metal but with a modern sound. Being influenced by such 80's greats as Motley Crue, G'N"Rs and many others, it just has to show through in the music.

From the onset of the opening track "Legless" right on through the whole disc you get some great sleaze induced glam metal. Songs like "No Gun No Fun" and "Bomb Fire" really stand out with their classic sound and catchy groove. Vocals and crunchy guitar tones are a main focus for Backwash as both are really prominent in the albums mix. The riffs are heavy and slightly AC/DC influenced in some places. The big surprise is the super cool "Feeling Like A Bitch". It is a new take on the power ballad. Mellow beginnings, solo and then a slight kick in.

Another worthwhile release from Perris. While it may not get many repeated spins, it is definitely worth checking out.
