We don’t hear too many metal bands from Poland, but I have to say that Helletricity’s new clip “Silver Bullets” has me quite anxious to hear the rest of their up and coming debut album Salem Blood which is due out October 29th in Europe and December 11th, in the United States.
You may have seen the new SNEW CD, What’s It To Ya advertised on That Metal Show. You may have even said, “Who in the hell is SNEW?” Let me tell you, if you haven’t checked SNEW yet, you are missing out on one of the best new bands to come out of Hollywood in quite some time. What does SNEW sound like? Blend the ass-kicking rock of Jackyl, AC/DC and maybe a dabble of Accept, and you will know what to expect. What’s it To Ya is SNEW’s third CD, and easily their best. To my ears, this CD features the band’s best music, and song writing to date. This CD is packed with a bunch of catchy hard rocking tunes, that classic rock fans are going to love.
So what’s new about SNEW this time? The band now features former Black Sheep front man, Willie Basse on bass. Willie’s big bass sound only helps to bolster SNEW’s take no prisoner’s style of rock. I don’t know if his addition has added new energy to the band, but Curtis Don Vito is singing like a man possessed on his record. Every single song rocks, and while this isn’t the longest of CD’s, it is 40 minutes of some of the best hell raising tunes I have listened to in 2012. I can’t get enough of this!
If you like bluesy, raw, kick-ass rock & roll, What’s It To Ya is a CD you are going to want to add to your collection and soon! You can become a member of the SNEW World order by picking up What’s It To Ya at Amazon.com, iTunes or direct from the band at Snewstore.com. Don’t miss this!
