Bang Camaro – S/T (Release Year – 2007)
Bang Camaro has a great 80′s style hard rock sound, but the major difference is the band has a choir of twenty lead singers.
With 20 singers at the helm, every track becomes a sing along anthem. It is a unique idea, that I do not recall being done before.
Not only does the band employ an army of singers, but they also have 3 axe slingers at their disposal: Alex Necochea, Bryn Bennett, Maclaine Diemer on Guitars and Keyboards, Dave Riley on Bass, and Andrew Dole on Drums.
The guitar sound on this album is very tight and full of guitar solos. I am not sure if I appreciate the novel idea of a male choir approach, but I do like the music on this record very well. Some of the songs here could have gone from good to great with a very good single male vocalist instead of twenty. This band probably would not have stood out if they didn’t try something new, so kudos to them for trying something different.
A couple of my favorite tunes are Push Push Lady Lightning and Out on the Streets.
