Ravagers “Badlands”

The single “Down That Road” was a great appetizer and it’s not surprising to find it opening “Badlands”. “White Widow” offers us some cool RUNAWAYS riffs while “Trespasser” is a pure in your face punk rock’n’roll song full of youthful energy. You’ll hear a bit of STOOGES and MOTÖRHEAD in “Sick House”, some early AC/DC in “Shake The Reaper” with a chorus in the vein of The HELLACOPTERS and TURBONEGRO although the lead vocals often sound powerpop (“Nasty Night”…) These rock’n’rollers from Baltimore seem to have found the right ingredients to make their recipe sweet and spicy enough, just listen to the catchy and anthemic “Blackout”! Headbangers and punks probably found a new song to party on together with “High On Stess” and you sometimes get a punk/hardcore vibe in these songs, especially in “Losing My Grip” that reminds me a bit of early AFI. The last song of the album “So Long” will just make you want to listen to more so it can’t be bad…
