Red Dead Roadkill : “Sweet Songs Of Anguish” CD 21st June 2019 Fastball Records. Australian Rock / Hard Rock / Heavy Metal / MetalCore band. I must say the label knows where to find the perfect bands. Another pearl on their roaster!
It is with surprise I listen to an amazing band that I got in love in few minutes, this is great to hear that each month brings surprises and talents to fill up the music world with awesome albums. Finally some manage to find the good receipt to captivate your soul and drive you mad.
The band released videos in 2018 and got signed by Fastball Records to bring this masterpiece this year. With the power of the compositions and their creations it is amazing they didn’t find a label sooner.
All started from a musician fed up of his old lads and a band disappearing for many reasons as we know about the tough life of a band in the music business. He managed to find the right fit to get this powerful melodic energetic explosive team to explode the world with those amazing tunes.
Bob Lee guitarist song writer (ex – Road Kill) formed Red Dead Roadkill mixing all the good ingredients to create one of the best band on the planet. While some songs will air on radios without troubles some are too heavy and will get caught up live by fanatics who will fall in love with the band.
I leave you enjoying this amazing video the first track on the album :
So you got addicted yet? Well I hope so as this is just a stunning video and the music is so good. Charming singer Radness with her voice that is so sweet and push the anger when it is needed. With the back up vocals from Sazzy O behind the bass and the Bob‘s one going kind of growling and heavier at some point. On the drums to drive this monster Crash that goes right on the pounding riffs setting up the right parts on each changes.
You just have the perfect band with a team of great musicians to blow your mind. This album will turn for days in your player. You will hear so many influences from Warrant, Femme Fatale, Hydrogyn, Nocion, No Shame, Janet Gardner, Sister shotgun, The Taws, Deep Purple, …
The melodies on her voice as the guitar riffs sending you to many music styles and gives a perfect album to die to. Twelve songs to get your senses and feeling stung like an electrified thorn, it will touch you deep inside while digging the lyrics and the music. “Good Night” is a funny song with two vocals and melodies well chosen that will got every moshers head banging in the pit.
“Hails to The King” , “Somewhere Mr Fate” , “Dying Day” , .. they are all excellent songs it is hard to choose which would be the best. There is no time you get down, there is always melodies, crunchy guitar riffs, exploding tunes. It moves you. This is bloody modern Rock ‘n Roll with Metal edges.
