Hailing from Bilboa, Spain comes a melodic rock 4 piece known as Airless who released their third album “Fight” in December of ’08. Airless is comprised of Robert Rodriguez (guitars), Iñaki Lazakano (vocals) and the rhythm section of Miguel Manjón (bass) and Pako Martinez (drums). Airless formed in 2002 and released their self titled debut in June of the same year. A little under 3 years later the guys returned with their second release titled “2nd Round” bringing even more attention to these Spainards and opening the doors for them to tour with the likes of Tyketto, Riot, and DARE. 2008 saw the release of the band’s third release “Fight” which took the sound of the guys in a slightly harder edge direction trying to capture the energy and rawness of their live show.
For fans of big choruses, melodies, and excellent guitar Airless offers it all plus more, with a sound that mixes a little Firehouse with a little Dokken. There are a few songs on “Fight” where Iñaki Lazakano reminds me of a young Don Dokken, especially on the track “Blame (The Darkness Part II). Rodriguez can hold his own with just about any guitarist in music today while Miguel Manjón and Pako Martinez are as tight as can be as a rhythm section. Other stand out tracks include “Don’t Give Up”, “Now or Never”, and “Crying For Your Love”.
