Occasionally, I will plug a new band in my music reviews, if they fit in the Hard Rock and Heavy metal genre. When I read that the influences of Violent Divine, were Motley Crue, and Guns ‘N Roses. I had to give them a listen.
I listened to 3 tracks, one time each on myspace and I said, ok, where can I get this…..NOW! I don’t buy much from ITunes, but they actually had this, so I said why not, besides, it beats going to the local record store on December 24th.
This kind of sounds like a fusion between 80’s Hard Rock and today’s current hard rock scene. This comes across as a fusion of Metal and Punk and a dash of sleaze with big drum beats, great guitars and catchy lyrics. There are a few immediate stand out tracks: Let’s Go, Rush You, and Levitate, but there honestly isn’t a bad song on this disc. I dare you try to listen to this disc, and try not to head bang! It is a well produced, fun to listen to debut effort by this Swedish based 4 piece.
This is definitely worth your money if you are looking for a new band that kicks ass!
Here are a couple of video’s to give you a taste of Violent Divine!
