Vandercrash – Scars & Tattoos
(S/R – 2016)
Over 52 minutes worth of hard driving unadulterated rock and roll from Muri, Aargau, Sitzerland is what this quartet are guilty of.
It’s in your face stuff that wouldn’t be out of touch if these guys played a bikefest the world over. Fourteen songs in total that have very similar riffs and tempo with a few ballads thrown in for a breather.
Check out numbers like the opening ‘Empty Highyway’ about California, the balladeering ‘Forever Is A Long Time’ and the commonly titled ‘Under The Gun’.
Then there’s ‘Bad Monday’ that we all get from time to time or the sad but beautiful ‘Don’t Carry My Heavy Load’.
