Snakeryder hail from New Jersey and have recorded an album of classic 80's styled, first in the air, hard rock. Like 1988 continued on without an ending, this guitar driven slice of hair metal will impress those that keep one ear open for anything featuring the classic vibe of this genre. With a whiskey-soaked rasp, vocalist AJ Fedz brings warmth and familiarity to the sound, which combined with plenty of melodic guitar riffs and some well placed harmonies, makes for some pretty easy listening rock n roll.
As the bio suggests, thoughts of Y&T and Cinderella come to mind, but additionally, this album might have something very positive to offer fans of other bands of the era such as Julliet, Motley Crue, Paul Shortino and even early Von Groove.
album packs a good punch that could have been enhanced with a
bigger budget, but the songs themselves are an excellent
collection of classic era melodic hard rock. Nothing
that hasn't been heard before, but certainly good enough in
quality to ensure that it will reach a number of classic era rock
fans and have them humming away to a new name.
