Pleasure Addiction “InDependence”

PLEASURE ADDICTION has been around for a while now in the Parisian rock scene, but they went through several line-up changes over the years. They now have Butcho (HELLECTROKUTERS…) on vocals and the other guys all play in other bands as well: Carvin is one of the guitar players in AESTHESIA, Stuffy plays bass in HIGH-SCHOOL MOTHERFUCKERS and HIGHLIGHT ENEMIES among others, Pamyz is his bandmate in HSMF and Bady plays in SWEET SILENCE. They mostly want to have fun with this band, playing their colourful 80s influenced melodic hard rock in our grey world, and it seems like there’s a good chemistry between the band when listening to this album.
A song like “My Superstar” sounds much better now with this new line-up and if you’re into bands like DOKKEN or XYZ, then you will love “Shout It Out” or “Couldn’t Live Without You.” They sometimes sound more glam on a song like “Saturday Nite” for instance and also go into more melodic territories with “Melody.”
As usual with Shotgun Generation Records, you get a cool colourful booklet with this CD, so get the physical version rather than the downloadable one./Laurent C.
