|simply awsome Hard Rock|
you welcome to the show!
Rock and Metal are not equivalent, though they are brothers. Rock and Metal , common origins different evolution, different lyrics, different lifestyles. If you take a direction, very hardly you will change it for the other one, so i don't listen usually to Rock , and even if it's hard, but when i happen to come in contact with an overwhelming Hard Rock i cannot avoid to pay my surprised attention. It happened recently with Krokus and their excellent "Rock the Block" and now again with Eat The Gun that are shooting with "Kingsize" 7 songs that are simply enthralling: old school, young and aggressive determination. Take the classic american byker Hard Rock/Rock'n Roll of the 70's and now add the modern complexity and instrumentation , mix the result with a touch of freshness and high voltage : here it is, you will have Eat the Gun. Thumbs up to a band like this, they still believe in a dream and this dream comes true: 4 guys from Münster, Germany, make us fly to the shores marked stripes and stars with unbelievable dynamism. No digital intervention: here we have a shouting , intense guitar sound with a lot of solos, sharp chords and wah-wah . The rhytmic session gives a big support to guitar and vocals, underlining the all round melodic passages. Cause Eat the Gun are not only energy but also catchy melody. Rebels with a flower in their hands announcing a mighty Rock . The technique is very valuable , the sound is clear and well structured, the combination of the instruments excellent, the tracks have blood in their "veins", rhythm, power, energy and good-mood . Eat The Gun, whose logo mascot is a bulldog with a gun in the mouth, have just been through a long tour in Germany and are already starting the second part of this "Kingsize tour" crashing also Hamburg , Bremen and Berlin. I bet they will rock Germany till the ground and soon the rest of the continent too. Not only Hard Rock lovers , AC/DC, Motörhead , Doro and Kiss fans will like them, Eat The Gun will win also Guns'n Rose and Power_metal oriented hearts. Kingsize gives us around 20 mins of pure extract of energetic Rock captained by a formidable opener that every listener will really like,"Welcome to the Show": varied, catchy, at the borderline between AC/DC and metal mentality, it is the super track of the whole CD followed by the relentless speed and roaring High heeled Love. Face the Music is more classic: showcases a big guitar work but it doesn't show any interesting new aspects, rather predictable unfortunately it is the song which doesn't attract me that much . Kingsize slows down then with another super track in mid tempo and vaste horizons : Crisis. No escape to resist its spell: only one negative side: it seems too short! And we speed up again: pressed rhythm till the last breath with Break out the Jams, rich in overpowering loops. A bit slower and really highway 66 oriented is Appetite. Kingsize is closed by The whole World, that begins in perfect acoustic style giving birth to a melodic intense song with the characteristics of a ballade: time for a reflection , time for sunset, who is carrying the world on his shoulders?
