Axident Avenue - Axident Avenue
Axident Avenue are a Glam/Metal/Rock band hailing from Norway. Shaken & Disturbed is their debut album released via Demon Doll Records. What we have here is pure 80's influenced glam ala the likes of Motley Crue/Poison/Pretty Boy Floyd.
The album opens with a short instrumental then explodes into 'Don't Fall In Love', which really lays the bands cards out on the table. Next up is 'Dirty With You' which continues in the Motley Crue vein. All 11 tracks are brilliant, and although you can tell the band are heavily influenced by the likes of Nikki Sixx and crew, you never feel like they are trying to rip them off!
The songs are solid and the band are tight. Stazii Violet has a good enough voice to grab your attention throughout even if he's not the strongest of vocalist's. I imagine this band would be a blast live, and if like me you miss the glam of the late 80's then check this album out; it's likely to be right up your street.
