RED DEAD ROADKILL - Sweet Songs Of Anguish

Red Dead Roadkill is a female fronted band from Hamburg that was born out of the ashes of Roadkill. Only remaining member Bob Lee went to Australia for a period of contemplation and returned with a bag of energy and reformed his former band with new members. Nevertheless the album was recorded as a solo effort with Lee playing guitar, bass, keyboards and singing backing vocals (and some duet passages). Singer Radd did the lead vocals with a very distinct rock voice. She does a great job! Some guest musians were brought in to complete the recordings which were guided by Roland Grapow of Helloween en Masterplan fame. This guarantees a great ballsy sound for the twelve flashing pop-metal songs that sound heavy, energertic and fresh. On the back of this album, Lee has build a new band who's playing live regulary in the Hamburg area. Judging by this album they should widen their scope as the quality of this album shows a band with international potential. (Geert Ryssen)
