Wim R. : Groovier, dirtier and with even more attitude: The Dead Daisies are back with their new album ‘Burn It Down’. Rock in its purest form. In comparison with their latest release ‘Make Some noise’ there is one line up change. Deen Castronovo (Journey, Bad English) is the new drummer after the departure of Brian Tichy. Oh my, supported by a very nice and fat production by Marty Frederiksen, the band really rolls up their sleeves on this one and deliver. In the past the band had some more melodic and lighter songs on their albums, but not on this one. It is full on rocking till the end. Only, really beautiful, exception is ‘Set Me Free’, the song has a bit of a bluesy touch to it, and John Corabi shows that he also masters the art to sing sensitive with a lot of feel. But do not worry, in the other songs Corabi is really laying it down with some nice and raunchy vocals. Title track ‘Burn It Down’ starts calmly, but as the song progresses it turns in to quite a beast, with really guitar from Aldrich and Lowy. From opener ‘Resurrected’ (with a great climax) up till the closing song ‘Leave Me alone’ this album holds you in its firm grip and will not let you go. In between you will find rock in its purest form. No flimsy bits here. From March the band will be out touring extensively, don’t miss them.
