Torpedohead “Let’s Go Fo A Ride” (2010)

5 brand new songs produced by Siggi Bemm (KREATOR, LACUNA COIL…) by Germany’s most promising band TORPEDOHEAD. We already enjoyed their first EP “Lovesick Avenue” (2009) a lot here at Veglam so it’s more than nice to see that the band didn’t waste their time and decided to come back and offer us some of the finest punky hard rock’n’roll.
TORPEDOHEAD is clearly heading towards a WILDHEARTS direction on these songs, especially on “Cadillac Beach” (and its catchy RAMONES chorus) and “Brave New World” (that also reminds me a bit of BACKYARD BABIES.) They also kept their love for American rock (“Black Rain”, a killer hit song!) and glammy punk’n’roll (“Moonshine Highway”) intact and put an end to this EP with “Paintrain”, a brilliant melancholic song in a pure D.A.D. vein! TORPEDOHEAD can write good melodies using great rock’n’roll guitar riffs and that’s all we need, don’t we?
I’m telling you, this is the best German band since The REVOLVERS!/Laurent C.
