LABEL ROCKSHOTS RECORDS
OUT 2018 - Sept 28th
OUR RATING 80/100
SIDE EFFECTS are a progressive combo from Croatia with 3 albums released so far. In 2018 they're celebrating their first decade with a new album to be released via ROCKSHOTS RECORDS, avilable from Sept 28th. Besides several live club's shows, SIDE EFFECTS have played many big stages and festivals as well as support band of top artists such as Whitesnake, Richie Kotzen and Paul Gilbert.
This album starts with DON'T CONTRADICT THE FACT; the first sensations remind us somerhin' from THE WINERY DOGS, also in vocals of RITCHIE KOTZEN but, as we will see, this band is able to develop a deeply own style.
The melodic flavour of their sound is visible on all sides, but as of third song called SCRATCH THE SURVIVE we can find the more progressive metal side, with a contemporary outfit.
DON'T TURN WAY is absoutely melodic and wide-ranging, while DIVERSION starts so funky but is alternating melodic.
THE SIREN SONGS is a pandora's box; we can find many influences and somethin' from masters as DREAM THEATER.
If HIDEOUT, so full of honey, is not winning us over, OBITUARY OF COMMON SENSE hit us for its variety.
NO DOUBT, ABSOLUTELY INTERESTING FOR THOSE THAT DON'T WANT LISTENING SAME OLD THINGS!
