Still, numerous bands kept recording raw, sleazin’ and crotch-grabbing hard rock from 1990 ‘till 1994. It’s too bad none of the releases gained much credibility.
In my estimation, one of the most underrated Sleaze rockers is the NYC band Spread Eagle: four guys who played their motherf*cking asses off and produced a sh*tload of Sleaze metal, released their debut album in 1990.
These 11 tracks combined on one disc makes it one hell of an album: a five star rating! All of its content is dripped with sleaze, sex and violence as you might notice listing to tracks as "Hot Sex" and "Suzy Suicide".
My favourite songs definitely are "Scratch Like A Cat", "Switchblade Serenade" and "Back On The Bitch".
The final song on Spread Eagle, "Shotgun Kiss", is also a great effort from these Yanks. The power ballad "Thru These Eyes" shows us a softer side of Spread Eagle, but after 3 minutes all hell breaks loose and makes you bang your head severely.
I think these guys could have achieved more success if they put out the record in ‘87/’88. The vocals of Ray West sounds familiar (Axl Rose anyone?) and shreds your record player to pieces I tell ya. Great competition for G N' R. Count up the pounding bass parts of Rob DeLuca and the crushing drums of Tommi Gallo and I bet Sleaze Metal fans kick their boots through walls!
