English:

Eddy Malm was in the early eighties singer with the Swedish Heavy Load, after he had gained experience with Highbrow. From both bands some tracks are included on this album, with new arrangements and a more modern sound.

‘Saturday Night’’s metal opens tight, melodic and catchy, after which ‘Warrior’ has something Celtic with fine vocal hook and lazy guitar solo. ‘Enough’ is fine hardrock, but nevertheless outdated. Then, the comparable, but catchy ‘Turn It Down’ is heavier and tighter. ‘Nasty Woman’ is catchy again with a fine riff and solo on top! ‘Dark Nights’ too is catchy, but slower and more dark, while ‘Get Out’ is faster and more melodic, with nice guitar. ‘Danger’ is brooding metal and the catchy ‘Loser’ is in the same vein. The awkward title song closes of nicely with some backing vocals, strong guitar and a long fade out.

At first this sounded pretty outdated, but after a few spins, this is simply good retro stuff. Quite enjoyable!


Nederlands:

Eddy Malm was in de vroege eighties zanger bij het Zweedse Heavy Load, nadat hij eerder ervaring had opgedaan bij Highbrow. Van beide bands staan op dit album enkele nummers in nieuwe arrangementen en meer moderne geluid.

‘Saturday Night’’s metal opent strak, melodieus en catchy, waarna ‘Warrior’ iets Keltisch heeft met goeie vocale hook en lazy gitaarsolo. ‘Enough’ is best leuke hardrock, maar toch gedateerd. Dan is het vergelijkbare catchy ‘Turn It Down’ weer wat steviger en strakker. ‘Nasty Woman’ is weer catchy met een goeie riff en solo erbovenop! Ook ‘Dark Nights’ is catchy, maar trager en wat donkerder, terwijl ‘Get Out’ sneller en meer melodieus is, met lekker gitaarwerk. ‘Danger’ is broedende metal en ook het catchy ‘Loser’ zit in dat straatje. Het logge titelnummer sluit mooi af met wat backing vocalen, sterk gitaarwerk en lange fade out.

Aanvankelijk klonk dit vrij oubollig, maar na enkele luisterbeurten, blijkt dit gewoon goeie retro HR/HM te zijn. Erg genietbaar!
