Rating: 8/10


After their debut ‘Sex First’ (2014) and the EP ‘Never Say Never’ last year these Italians bring us ‘One Last Ride’ with a musical mix described as a blend of eighties sleaze rock, hard rock and AOR.

After the nice intro ‘Day Zero’ follows ‘Loaded Gun’ with a fine helping of catchy HR/AOR. A sharp guitar solo starts ‘Freak’ reminding of Bon Jovi. ‘Game Over Fame’, check the video, is harder, rougher, catchier with fine solo, after which ‘Lights’ brings a slow, bluesy intermezzo with good vocals by Albert Fish, by the way. ‘Never Say Never’ is an up-tempo slice of sleaze metal and ‘The Maze’ is even faster. ‘Plan B’ delivers hard rock with a sleazy edge, as does ‘Not Today’ as well. ‘Born This Way’ is more temperate, more AOR, but a catchy closer – including another great solo – of this platter.

This album is more varied than their first and shows they found a style of their own.


Na hun debuut ‘Sex First’ (2014) en de EP ‘Never Say Never’ vorig jaar sturen deze Italianen ‘One Last Ride’ de wereld in met een muzikale mix die beschreven wordt als een mengsel van 80ies sleaze rock, hard rock en AOR.

Na de sfeervolle intro ‘Day Zero’ komt ‘Loaded Gun’ met een catchy HR/AOR mix die er lekker ingaat. Een snedige gitaarsolo trekt ‘Freak’ op gang en doet denken aan Bon Jovi.
‘Game Over Fame’, check de video, is steviger, ruwer, catchier met fijne solo, waarna ‘Light’ een traag, bluesy intermezzo brengt, met goede stem van Albert Fish overigens. ‘Never Say Never’ is uptempo brok sleaze metal en ‘The Maze’ gaat nog sneller. ‘Plan B’ levert hard rock met een sleazy randje, net zoals het steviger ‘Not Today’. ‘Born This Way’ is wat bezadigder, meer AOR, maar een catchy afsluiter – inclusief een andere prima solo - van deze schijf.

Dit album is meer gevarieerd dan hun vorige en toont meer een eigen gezicht.
