FATE A Matter Of Attitude
MTM Classix (2004)

This album originally saw the light of day back in 1987 and now re-appears as part of MTM’s excellent Classix series. Fate were formed by ex-Mercyful Fate guitarist Hank Sherman, along with Jeff ‘Lox’ Limbo (vocals), Bob Lance (drums) and Pete Steiner (bass/keys).

It’s very 80’s sounding hard rock with catchy choruses, gang vocals, sometimes cheesy lyrics (‘I rock hard, hard as a rock’) and guitars to the max and it’s great! I never heard the band first time around which is a pity as its taken this long to here the catchy hard rock tunes on this album. Like ‘Hard As A Rock’, the keyboard driven ‘Losing You’ and ‘Hunter’, which will have fans of Europe smiling into next week! ‘Summerlove’ verges too far into hard rock by numbers for my liking but ‘Do It’ shows a fun side with a doo wop number - honest! Two bonus tracks as well - one very heavy standard rocker , whilst the other is a ballad. Both are okay but not earth shattering.

One for collectors of 80’s hard rock and the good news is that the band has recently reformed.
