Reissue - Unstoppable
Young Swedish band, Reissue belie their years with this seven track sampler, just bursting at the seams with red blooded old school rock.
It's an exhilarating, self assured set of songs, full of roaring riffs and soaring choruses with an underlying Southern Rock groove.
Ragged edged, but achingly beautiful 'Am I To Blame' climaxes with an itchy rhythmic crunch.
There's a self assured swagger to 'Evil In You' and 'For Sure' and self evident from these tracks that the band place a strong emphasis on melody.
'Save My Soul' and 'Highspeed Chaser' incorporates jagged guitars with pistoning rhythms
and piledriving drums. Satisfyingly unvarnished rock'n'roll.
The Reissue lily is gilded by a truly magnificent vocalist. His been-round-the-block-a-few-times voice muscles through every lyric, propelling itself onto centre stage, simultaneously creating a tight knit dynamic with guitar, bass and drums.
At times you can hear raw enthusiasm rather than finely tuned hard rock, but hell, better that than soulless perfection.
Unstoppable indeed.
