Marita – Bloodlust
(Skullcrack Records – 2018)
A Norwegian Metal three-piece that are fronted by Marita Sundet Solhelm alongside Geir Arne Solhelm (Bass Guitar) and Trygve Johan Solheim (Lead Guitar/Drums).
The album has that old school 80's feel about it with a synthed echoey sound to it that I associate with films of the time which kinda makes it more authentic in a way. Imagine Guns 'N' Roses meets Dio and throw some Ozzy Osbourne, Kiss and Fastway in there too but with high-end young female vocals.
Ten songs greet our ears here with highlights including the opening pulverising '66 Crush'; the cock rock of 'Danger City'; the scary title-track 'Bloodlust' and the closing 'Flesh Is Burning' that really sticks in your head – they are coming for you... as is Marita with this release.
