Addicted To Metal
Released: 2010, AFM
Reviewer: Celtic Bob
Like Airbourne before them, Kissin’ Dynamite appear at first glance to be more of the same bare bones, no nonsense Hard Rock. That is where the similarities end. Airbourne are more Hard Rock while Kissin’ Dynamite are more Power Metal.
The title track on ADDICTED TO METAL features Udo Dirkscneider (U.D.O./ex-Accept) lending a hand. This is by far the best track on the album. The vast majority of the album has way too much of a Power Metal influence to it. If they had stuck to one particular genre it would have made for a more enjoyable listening experience. Apart from the title track the only other standout is a cover song of the Damn Yankees’ “High Enough” which they do quite well on it. But as with most cover versions, the original is usually the best.
A solid first effort. It will be interesting to see where the next album takes them. Will it be more Hard Rock or will they go full on Power Metal? Only time will tell.
