Badmouth - Badmouth

This is the kind of record that sinks in on virtually the first listen and will have you joining in on the choruses second time around.
Opening with 'Pedal To The Metal' this Swedish Glam, Metal, Rock band really set up their stall. Most of the songs do have an 80's metal feel to them, yet they still manage to sound contemporary!
Some great sleazy lyrics with some very well written songs. I love this band, definitely one to keep your eyes on!
Check out their myspace page and then check out their debut album!

Rating 9/10

Rock N Roll will never die whilst bands like Badmouth live and breathe. Badmouth's self titled release is a no frills, down and dirty sleazy metal affair drawing on some classic influences and delivering an entertaining ride.

Produced by the legendary Paul Sabu this album has a great sound and is full of wonderful riffs and funky grooves accompanied by strong vocals.

Standout tracks are 'Rivethead' with it's Guns N Roses-esque feel and 'Take Your Toothbrush With You' stood out for the title alone but was also backed up with some wonderful lyrics and a pounding rhythm. 'Supersassy Baby' is a real sleazy number and 'Kick It Up' has a shout it out chorus ready to be done live.

Lyrically this album isn't big and it isn't clever but it rocks and is pretty damn good!
