Seventh Veil “White Trash Attitude”

SeventhVeilWTAThe Italian gang is back with 10 songs (they released a 3 song EP last year) still influenced by 80s Sunset Strip bands and melodic heavy rock. Sometimes reminding of “Girls Girls Girls” (Obviously one of their favourite albums as the band’s name suggests) Crüe era in the guitar riffs (“Red Light In Your Eyes”, “Are You Ready To Die?”), SEVENTH VEIL has their roots in European heavy metal before all (Steven’s vocals, the guitars and double bass definitely sound more heavy metal than glam metal, just listen to “Sister Cigarette”,”No Fear” or “Slimy Snake” …)
The melodic hard rock side of the band is actually what fits them the best on this album, even if can mostly be heard in just one song (L.A. Dream”) this time.
The musicians can play, the singer can sing, but in the end, the songs on “White Trash Attitude” suffer from a serious lack of hooks. Maybe next time?/Laurent C.
