BAND 17 CRASH
ALBUM Through Hell And Back
LABEL Volcano Records
OUR RATING 85/100
Born in 2011 in Tuscany, thanks to the passion of Phil Hill and Ros Crash. 17 Crash at their early beginning unleashed their passion with a pure 80's LA Glam Rock Style.
Their first album was entitled " Reading your Dirty Minds" (2015).
After a first Italian tour, they published a second work, “Hit the prey", in March 2018: a great blend of 80's sound and Modern Hard n’ Heavy/Aor.
During this 2019 they came back in studio to work on the 3rd fatigue: "Through Hell And Back".
As for previous album, the production has been handled by Alessio Lucatti (Vision Divine, Deathless Legacy) and the Mix&Master by Simone Mularoni (Domination Studio, DGM).
A brilliant album, enhanced by a powerful production that exalts all instruments making possible for the band another step forward.
Ten songs in this brand new album; the first shot is FACE TO FACE, where a female voice introduces a direct hard rock song, with an effective rhythm section, high level vocals and an inspired solos, trademarks of the whole platter.
The second one is BE A MAN, which shows a great musicality before next CHANGE YOUR WAY that remind us the Cinderella’s touch, with great inserts of keyboards.
The title track, after some cinematic effects, starts with an harder riffing before opening with the usual musicality.
More melody in the fancy BITE THE FREEDOM and in DON’T SURRENDER; in the second, a tasty ballad, they’re more thoughtful before entering a blasting solo.
They return to push with next HEROES, great hard rock tune “so American”..brilliant..sounds really great!!
If PRAY YOUR GOD provides two dimensions, one more cozy and one more rockin’, FIRST DAY IN HEAVEN is maybe a step behind.
The growin’ VOICE IN THE NIGHT ends in the best way this brilliant record.
