Wim R. : Dolls Raiders hails from Toulouse, France. Up till 2010 the band was called Iron Cobra. Now, the band is releasing their first album ‘Free Yourself’. Musically the band can be labelled as a harder kind of Glam Rock. So forget the bio where the band is compared to Skid Row and Aerosmith. It might only be the furious way of playing that reminds of the two afore mentioned bands. This album does hold some stronger songs like ‘Burn Your TV’, where guitarist Christophe really shines. And ‘Taste Your Shame’ is musically very good. Although the comparisons with Guns and Roses are more than obvious. The rest of the songs are quite mediocre. Singer Nicholas is not the most talented singer. He has one way of singing. Not much variation and his reach is limited. Of course, this kind of music does not need a Pavarotti, but a singer with some more variation and depth would do the band good for sure. Price for best song of the album goes to the short and furious ‘Fight The Power’. This song shows the strong side of Dolls Raiders. The more than strong production supports this great song. France might be world champion in football, but when it comes to true rocking they do not come any further than the amateur divisions.
