Lick is a new band from Deventer, in The Netherlands, that have their musical roots in 70´ Hard Rock.
This has all been done before and is by no means ground breaking. But the band has the love and enthusiasm for this kind of music that really makes it work. And they got all the parts as well, great musicians and a singer with a characteristic voice. And the songs are good, maybe not great, but absolutely good.
As what does this sound like? I would say that bands like AC/DC and Kiss is their greatest influence. There are riffs from both bands, and you can easily say that you heard it before. But all in a good way.
There are many bands out there that tries to pull this sound of and to be quit frank not many of them can. But Lick is one of those who can pull it of.
It´s all straight up old school hard rock. And as I said before the song quality is really good, with a couple of tracks that stands out a little bit more than the others. That is the title track “Mount Rock”, “White Lion”, “Rock City” and the best song “Turn Off The Lights”.
Still you got to remember that this is the bands debut and they got the future ahead of them. I have no doubt that these guys will make it and improve them self’s on the next album.
