Koen B. : A good friend of mine drew my attention to Snakebite, a new German heavy / hair metal band that recently released their untitled three track debut demo. The band consists of Nikki Action (vocals, guitars), Jeff Rotten (drums, vocals), Alex LaCroix (guitars, vocals) all former band members from Sexx Action and Neill Oblivion (bass, vocals) from the German techno band Incubite. The three songs on this demo CD ‘Princess Of Pain’, ‘We Rise’ and ‘Road To Nowhere’ are perfect appetizers from the bands forthcoming, yet untitled, full-length album.
I simply adore this kind of music that takes you back to 1985 – 1990 when acts like Keel, Every Mother’s Nightmare and Britney Fox were launched (but whose careers never really took off). Who ever told you that glam / sleaze metal was dead? Eighties hair metal is still alive and Snakebite are the living proof of that! Check Snakebite’s Bandcamp and Facebook pages and let yourself be idulged by some snakes, drugs and rock ’n roll. Let’s get the party started!
