`Generation wild' is the brand new, third studio album of `Crashdiet' featuring the creative core of guitarist Martin Sweet, bass player Peter London and drummer Eric Young joined by attitude-fuelled singer Simon Cruz (replacing Oliver Twisted who fronted the band during the 2nd album `The unattractive revolution).
With 'generation wild' the band effectively takes steps backward but in a good way! `Crashdiet' has gone back to the sound and attitude of their debut and in a sense reintroduce themselves to worldwide audiences. Indeed, `Generation wild' is the first `Crashdiet' album to be supported by international distribution (thanks to Frontiers records) therefore the band is clearly aiming at an international career after their evident domestic success.
In terms of sound the album is metallic, melodic and obviously sleazy. You can rely on the fact that `Generation wild', `Rebel', `So alive' and `Down with the dust' sound as classic as their titles suggest. The production is thick, the riffs huge on most occasions (namely `Armageddon), endless amount of melodic guitar and vocal lines, and as always BIG choruses.Read more ›
Honestly, it may not be fair to call something so polished and melodic "sleaze" rock. Crashdiet obviously takes inspiration from Motley Crue and the whole `80s Hollywood hair metal sound, but they give it a heavy dose of Swedish melody and precision for and end result that's completely rockin' and completely irresistible. This band was awesome to begin with, but Simon Cruz's voice is a fantastic addition to the band's sound. He sounds like a rock hero from the `80s, giving the band an added measure of melody and power.
Generation Wild is a fantastic album from start to finish. Not only is it the strongest overall album that Crashdiet has ever recorded, it's also an album that puts most challengers to shame. Honestly, Motley Crue should listen to this and either step up their game or just walk away. If you're already down with bands like Hardcore Superstar, Reckless Love and Crazy Lixx, you don't need me to tell you to check out what Crashdiet has to offer. If you're the kind of rock fan who still spins your old Crue, Ratt and Skid Row albums, discovering this band will seem like a blast from the past.
