One of the most unusual and charismatic rock acts have announced the release of the latest studio album for January 2014. "Up the Dosage" picks up seamlessly where their 2009 release "From Hell To Texas" left off. And what is more: their five-year hiatus seems to have done frontman Blaine Cartwright (vocals, guitar) and Ruyter Suys (guitars) good - all 13 new songs sound like they were catapulted into to the public from a fountain of youth, rocking in typical Pussy style. Up the Dosage features the first recordings from new bassist Bonnie Buitrago who took over the bass player duties from Karen Cuda.
Here Nashville's cast nails a collection of holiday classics for a real-world LP. The album moves with the sonic diversity of contemporary country radio, from string-filled ballads to—in the case of "Christmas Coming Home"—a Bo Diddley-esque syncopated stomp. Sam Palladio's gently sung take on Joni Mitchell's "River" is quietly moving, and Aubrey Peeples' saucy "Merry Christmas Baby" breaks the boundaries of country altogether, exaggerating the horn riffs and guitar flourishes of old-school rock ‘n’ roll.
Already the debut album „On The Way To Sin City“ from 2013, also released through Pure Rock Records, showed up, that the Finnish Hard Rock Band Guns Of Glory are hungry newcomers, who internalised the spirit of acts such as Nashville Pussy, AC/DC, Krokus and Rose Tattoo. Now the four Scandinavian guys are proud to present their second work (album 2016) and prove that traditional, asskickin‘ Rock’n’Roll didn’t lose anything of its elemental force. With a drunken, smoky voice, bluesy, yet rockin‘ guitars and an always youthful dash, they are rockin‘ through twelve mostly solid and short tunes, that the sweat is dripping from the roof. That’s Rock’n’Roll, baby!
