RAZAMANAZ Perris Records PER11729 (2003)

The band began back in 1993 and feature Britny Fox’s guitarist Michael Kelly Smith, plus Cory Massi (vocals/guitar), Joe Bisbing (bass) and Steve Attig (drums). The band recorded songs for Kiss and Paul Revere & the Raiders tribute albums, which appear here along with a host of demos and outakes. The sound of the band is prime time 80’s hard rock with a big nod towards Aerosmith, Great White and Britny Fox, a big blues rock vibe runs throughout the album.

To be honest the covers stand out the most, with the Kiss classic ‘King Of The Night Time World’ given a real romping version. The band’s version of Aerosmith’s ‘Seasons of Wither’ is worth buying the CD alone for – sheer class. ‘Kicks’ is a jaunty pop rocker originally by Paul Revere & the Raiders, a band who first started out in the 60’s. But it’s not all covers with prime time bluesy rock in the shape of ‘In The Dust’, the instrumental ‘Call Of the Wild’ and ‘Rock ‘N’ Roll Outlaw’.

Britny Fox fans will obviously want this release and if you loved the 80’s style blues rock of Great White and Tesla give this a try. The covers on here are strong as well and help the listener get into the more unfamiliar tracks on the album.

*** OK, approach with caution unless you are a fan |
** Instant bargain bin fodder | * Ugly. Just ugly
