Rockarma – Bring It (Release Year – 2008)
Fans of 80’s style Hair Metal rejoice. Rockarma released a cd earlier this year that will Rock your world. It is their second cd, titled “Bring It!” and is absolutely an incredible piece of work.
For some reason, this cd has escaped notice by the mainstream….but after a quick listen to the myspace tunes you will want to put “Bring It!” in your library for sure.
From the very first tune, “Badjune”, sit up and take notice. Rockarma’s music is so tight, so melodic and so perfect that you will be projected back in time. Back to an era when good-time, rock-hard, party-hard, bring-on-the-girls type Rock N Roll ruled. And if you didn’t grow up in that era, “Bring It!” will make you will wish that you did!
“Get Me Outta This Hole” is the obligatory anthem song that every Hair Metal band places on their cd, and this example is just killer.
The title track “Bring It!” tells a short tale of success, which is exactly what this entire cd encompasses.
And the last tune on the cd, “Same Ol Song” is a wonderfully bluesy effort that will leave you with two thoughts racing through your mind:
“This was a great cd that I’ve gotta play it again right now!” and “Man! I can’t wait to hear what Rockarma does next!”
While the four tracks mentioned above are my favorites, make no mistake, every song is of the highest quality in both musicianship and production.
This four man, Canadian band has given us a CD with all the qualities to make it a choice for top Rock cd of the year.
