Horror rock is alive and well and this time is delivered by a French "Blonde Zombie Rocker" in the form of Traumatisme.
What you have here is ten tracks of pure bubblegum horror rock anthems. The bio begins like this, "Do you remember the time when bands like Twisted Sister, Alice Cooper, Mötley Crüe, Kiss, AC/DC, Bon Jovi or Poison were the masters of the world?" I sure do and what a great way to kick things off!
Traumatisme reminded me a fair bit of Peppermint Creeps, but that is good as they are one of my favourite bands, there was also a little Izzy Stradlin "Ju Ju Hounds" style in the mix too. Traumatisme certainly wouldn't look out of place supporting someone like Wednesday 13 or The Misfits. I really hope they tour the UK, as I'd love to see them based on what is on offer here.
What this CD lacks in production (it is very rough and ready) it more than makes up for in killer tunes!
