Released: 2007, Independant
Reviewer: Anders Sandvall
JUNKYARD SPECTACLES is the bands first independent EP. So if their debut album is gonna sound as good as the EP I think we have the next big musical export from Denmark right here. The band has been out touring quite a lot this year, so if the guys are gonna play in your town be sure to be there. The band has won the award “Demo of the Month” in one of the largest music magazine Gaffa in Denmark. New guitarist is Thomas Pedersen and he joined the band at the beginning of this year.
Supercharger plays dirty, groovy, high-octane party rock’n’roll with a dose of heavy metal and with one hell of an attitude. It is not the most complicated music in the world but the passion and the joy of the music are contagious and it is hard not to like Supercharger. Lead singer Neperus does a great job with the vocals and he has just the right register and hoarseness to sing this kind of music. Guitarists Elnegaard and Buchwald deliver dirty and raw guitar riffs and duels and the rhythm section is solid as a rock.
The disc kicks off with “Hold On Buddy” and the band sets the mood for the EP already in the beginning. The song is heavy and mean and kicks the shit out of you. The EP continues with “Hell Motel” which goes a little slower but the band hasn’t compromised with the heaviness despite that. The metal influences are more prominent in this song and Neperus shows more of his vocal range.
“If You Wanna Rock” is a more party rock’n’roll item with high speed and with guest Lars Bygaard on harmonica. “Some Sugar” is another brilliant rock’n’roll tune that fits the band like a glove and in “Left Out” the band shows a more sensitive side of themselves. “By Gold” is the last song on the disc and it’s easy to say that I want to hear more from Supercharger. “By Gold” is the perfect ending and the band leaves you longing for more.
JUNKYARD SPECTACLE was a nice surprise and I really hope the band is about to release their debut album. Supercharger has what it takes to make it big time. The future belongs to this Danish dynamite act. This is really damn good!!
