The band are yet another fine example of excellent melodic hard rock that fans have grown to expect from Z.
Discovered by Mark Alger a few months ago SCREAM IN EDEN’s debut entitled” Original Sin” will be released on January 28th 2008 and is essential for fans of Tesla, Dokken and Babylon AD.
Over the past week we have ran a special anonymous preview at www.myspace.com/zrockrecordsuk with amazing feedback, if you haven’t yet checked out the two tracks by the band do so now you will be impressed!
Featured around the fantastic vocals of Joe Dokken and the guitar work of White Cross Axeman Rex Carroll, SCREAM IN EDEN are set to make 2008 their year.
HRH note: Check out the tunes at the myspace page…..they ROCK!!
New glam metal from nearly every country on the planet continues to show up at the Hard Rock Hideout. The new release by the S.E.X. Department from Perris Records is the first that has come from Italy.
The S.E.X. Department has a sound that I would compare to early Motley Crue, mixed with Pretty Boy Floyd. For a three piece band, they have a decent sound.
Something about this release reminds me of the rawness of Motley Crue’s debut. This disc is not as strong as Too Fast For Love, but it is a pretty good cut of glam tunes for these Italian rockers.
Kelly Trash Mendess vocals are not overpowering, but are well suited for the tunes here. The best cuts on this disc are Revenge of the Vampires, Glitter Bitter, Sir Yes Sir and ,S.E.X. Department.
The band’s sound could be greatly enhanced with a second guitar player and more background vocals. That may be all that S.E.X. Department needs to push them over the top. This CD is a solid debut for S.E.X. Department. This disc should be enough to gain them a whole new slew of fans, and help the band build success for a more powerful sophomore effort.
