HARDLEIN Down To The Fire (2009)


Hardlein release their debut album 'Down To The Fire'. The band have taken a healthy dose of AC/DC, maybe a little bit of KISS and Tesla, maybe even a little bit of Jackyl, shake it up a bit and what you get is some straight ahead, no-nonsense rock and roll, with a little bit of retro going on.

Vocalist Bobby Lee Stamper has a voice that could be described as right in the middle of AC/DC's Bon Scott and Brian Johnson, although there are moments on 'Down To The Fire' where there is a kind of Southern Sammy Hagar going on (most notably the track 'Drivin''). With some superb solos courtesy of guitarist Chief, and a tight rhythm section, the band have made a record that you can't help but enjoy listening to.

Each of the 10 tracks included is as good as the next and this album really does come highly recommended. Check out 'Doin' Time', 'Deceiver', 'Can't Stop It' or the 7 minute 'Wicked You'- however, you are better off turning this one right up and just letting it play.
