Song Of The Week #150 Dokken – The Hunter
As it is 150th song, this time I would like to feature my favorite band – Dokken and their song that I love.
You should know that Dokken was one of the first bands that might be categorized as glam metal (check their debut album “Breaking The Chains” from 1983). “The Hunter” was released on “Beast From The East” album in 1988, which was the last studio album before hiatus and the last with such strong glam metal influences.
Nevertheless, Dokken style also in this song is very unique – they released lots of ballads and in fact all of their songs contain ass-kicking guitar solos (George Lynch). I love “The Hunter” especially for its lyrics, for some they may appear as depressing but in my humble opinion it is a advantage.
