Lordi will release their highly anticipated fifth studio album on September 14, 2010 in the US on The End Records.

Sweden has been a hot bed for talented new hard rock bands. One of the best new Swedish acts that I have heard in 2010, is the band Mama Kin. Mama Kin, who take their name from the classic Aerosmith tune, is a straight forward hard rock band with a vocalist who sounds a lot like Paul Stanley from KISS. Their debut CD, In The City is cram packed full of catchy rockers that most rock fans are going to love.
If you are looking for flashy guitar solos, you aren’t going to find on In the City. What the band lacks in guitar prowess, they more than make up with songs that will get in your head. From “Badge and a Gun” to “Champagne, Chicks & Rock N’ Roll” you will have a hard time finding a bad song in the bunch. The songs are written with easy to remember choruses, that will have you singing along in no time. Some of my favorites include the band’s first single, “Superman”, “Higher and Higher” and the super catchy anthem, “Champagne, Chicks & Rock N’ Roll”.
Mama Kin signed with Jamsync Music in 2010 and released In the City in the U.S in June. Mama Kin has been touring all over the United States, making new fans in each town they visit. I have had the pleasure of seeing the band play live, and enjoyed their set quite a bit. I am already looking forward to seeing them again, and anxious for album #2. If I have any complaints, In the City is a little on the short side. (It clocks in just a little over 35 minutes.) I will take a great, short CD over a bad long one any day of the week. In the City is a lot of fun to listen to and will likely make my Top 10 list of 2010. If you want to end your summer with a bunch of fun rocking tunes, look no further than Mama Kin’s In the City.
