One of Sweden finest, Sanchez, are finally back with a brand new melodic rock & rock n roll package. For the fans of Danger Danger, Firehouse and Dokken.
Sanchez has been around in the music business since the late 80's. Each one of these guys has a history of playing live. Some of them have played as an opening act for band such as Dee snider, Paul di Anno, White Lion, The Poodles, Easy Action, just to name a few and with major Swedish metal acts, even been on tour in South America.
The one who started the band, Jose Sanchez, has been singing since the early 80's. He has been around in a lot of bands such as: Fierce Conviction, Lies and Empire Saint. But his heart has always been in glam/hardrock music. This is for sure the kick ass live band you must see!
I'm not a big fan of the voice of J. Sanchez.... his voice sounds a bit sleazy but not powerful enough to give the songs that extra punch they need!
The guitar sound is melodic and sometimes heavier with some nice riffs and solos, the rhythm section is solid and the production is overall good.
The songs are all well-written with a strong dose of 80's hair metal sound but, also, some more sleazier elements and a glam rock attitude that will travel you years back!
"Stand Up For Your Rights" is strong enough to make you shake and tumble!
"We Got Your Love" is pure 80's tune with a really good guitar work, but it lacks a catchier chorus line.
"Run The Streets" is one of my favorite tracks from this album.
"Friends" shows the softer side of the band with the acoustic mid-tempo rhythm.
"Bullet In Your Heart" is a sensational rocker and "Empty Words" is a great power ballad!
All in all, this is a very interesting release from Sanchez. The boys are tryin' to bring back the glory 80's sound and, in a point, they achieve it.
I think that this band has the right attitude, the songs and the passion to make the difference! Well done!
For all the die-hard fans of classic Hard Rock music, Sanchez are ready to rock the crowd and to seriously kick some butts.
