ALBUM FAT HITS
LABEL Ripple Music
OUT Jan 15th, 2020
OUR RATING 80/100
STARIFIED are a Moscow based power-trio with a singing drummer formed in 2017.
The band members call themselves students of the old-school rock masters: from Led Zeppelin and
Black Sabbath to Foo Fighters and Jack White.
Their shows are known for mad expression and glamourous entourage.
STARIFIED has already had two Russian tours, a European tour, lots of shows in their hometown -
Moscow, released two LP’s, a number of live videos, produced their official music video and they
keep on working on the new material.
On Jan 15th will be out their new album entitled FAT HITS via RIPPLE MUSIC.
An interesting work which shows a band with right talent and personality, able to provide a fancy blend of different elements.
The first shot is SCAPEGOAT, with its dark heavy rock, closer to doom at time, enriched by lilting and sharp riffs.
In DON LOCO we can find different influences, from Alter Bridge to stoner, in a contest where the band always express its own style.
More rockin’ AN ODE TO TENACIOUS D., enriched by a great solo, followed by ANTI REBEL, a great mix of punk and indie with a pressing last part.
If SARATON is more thoughtful and WIDER LANE is a step behind, WHAT IF is our choice-song.
After various PICK A FIGHT, NOAH and SAMA OLD RIVER end in the best way this interesting tune.
ANOTHER BAND TO TAKE AN EYE ON!!
