New Wave Of Glam Metal / Sleaze Rock – Part #4
It is almost one year, when I compiled the previous part of this list featuring new wave bands, during this time a lot of things happened and I discovered lots of talented bands, 🙂
- New Wave Of Glam Metal / Sleaze Rock – Part #1
- New Wave Of Glam Metal / Sleaze Rock – Part #2
- New Wave Of Glam Metal / Sleaze Rock – Part #3
A short prologue
In the next weeks, I am going to relase a brand new site ( http://sleaz.net ) where much more bands will be featured. Please stay in loop!
#1 Switchblade Scarlett (US)
The first band that I would like to mention is Switchblade Scarlett, a band from Cleveland in US. Long time ago, I promised the bass player, Spider Lane that I will write about them in October – sorry for big delay! I really like their song titled “Little Hearts“, it is one of the most melodic new wave songs that I have ever listened to, 🙂
Switchblade Scarlett – Little Hearts
#2 Superhorrorfuck (Italy)
Superhorrorfuck is the most shocking sleaze metal band from Italy that I know so far. When I watched their video for “Voodoo Holiday“, I was really surprised with their characteristic, flamboyant and shocking appearance (wtf?), 🙂 but their songs kick asses (especially if you are zombie fan). It is one of the sleaziest bands in this compilation.
Superhorrorfuck – Voodoo Holiday
#3 Casablanca (Sweden)
Sweden is the home of Crashdiet and Hardcore Superstar, but there is another new wave band that you should meet. If you like energetic pop metal, I really recommend you their whole album “Apocalyptic Youth” released in 2012. The refrain with chorus in “Secret Agents Of Lust” is amazing!
Casablanca – Downtown
#4 The Unripes (Italy)
Italy for the second time and this is not America, 🙂 100% pure sleaze and very nice guitars, drums along with vocals! “Reload” is quite sad song, but if you prefer something more aggressive, you should see “Reload“.
The Unripes – You Are The One
#5 Shotgun Express (Germany)
Very energetic band with very heavy and sleazy music. Last year they released “Gypsy Blues” album and toured with many 80s/90s bands, such as: Vain, Cinderella and Bonfire.
Shotgun Express – From The Gutter
#6 The Deep End (Australia)
If you like AC/DC, Airbourne or Jackyl – The Deep End is a band that successfully merged their musical style. There is one thing for sure, it is impossible to reinvent a wheel for the second time. Therefore, I do not think that The Deep End might be called a copy of any particular band, because they went much farther and certainly build their custom style.
The Deep End – Bigger. Better. Badder.
#7 Crash Mansion (UK)
First of all, I am forced to say, that “Money” video is a real masterpiece after I watched it and listen to this song. I am certain that they will become popular very soon at least in UK and Europe!
Crash Mansion – Money
#8 Sex Slaves (US)
The video for “WTFRU” is on my top 5 new wave videos. It is a long time when I recently watched such creative video (but the concept in itself reminds me of “Rock’n’Roll Kids Forever” by German band Victory). Wow, I really love their aggressive, loud, heave and sleaze tracks!
Sex Slaves – WTFRU
#9 Rusted (Canada)
The last featured band today is Rusted from Canada. They got the power, basically their music is a bit calmer when compared to other bands from this compilation, but they got a few rebellious songs, eg. “Rock Patrol” or “Fuck Off (We Wake The Dead)” 🙂
