Released: 2008, Limb Music/Intromental
Reviewer: Anders Sandvall
Dustsucker is a three piece act from Germany and has been active since 1993 and released their debut album in 1994. Many of their first albums and EP’s were only released in their home country and therefore the band is most known in Germany and nearby countries. They have a solid reputation of being a kick ass live act. During 2003 the band recorded an EP called BACKSLIDER and it was with that EP Limb Music first laid eyes on Dustsucker. ROCK’N’ROLL SNIPER was released the following year and it was also the first album that was released world wide. At the same time the band was struggling with line-up problems. Today the bands core is drummer Piermattei and singer/guitarist Count Farmer.
Here we have some simple straight up heavy metal/rock’n’roll music delivered in the most perfect way. The music isn’t complex and complicated instead the band relies on simple but strong riffs and heavy melodies. Sometimes it’s better not to complicate things. With guiding stars like Motörhead, Rose Tattoo, The Hellacopters, Nashville Pussy, Tank and Fist I can really recommend this album to every rocker out there. DIABOLO DOMINATION is a real party starter to say the least. To cap it off the special guest performer on the song “Land Of The King” on lead guitar is none other than Jeff Waters from Annihilator.
In 40 minutes the band runs through 12 kick ass songs that make you surrender right away. Killer tracks are “Lost And Forgotten”, “Dig Your Own Grave”, “Live In Sin”, “Land Of The King”, “Ignite To Burn”, “Loaded And Ready” and “Learn To Crawl”. I know that I have numbered almost every title on the album but that just shows how amazing this album really is.
Producer and ex- Grave Digger, now Rebellion, guitarist Uwe Lulis has create the perfect production and it oozes the rawness, dirt, sweat and energy of the music. It’s the perfect production for Dustsucker’s dirty music. Lulis is also playing bass on the disc instead of the new comer Vanya Drost. Dustsucker has delivered a solid album that includes many many hours of pleasant listening. I’m all out of words. It’s a given purchase for all heavy rockers out there.
