I actually first heard of this band thanks to Hard Rock Hideout, sampled some of their music online, and now, here I am with with their 2008 EP in my hands.
And an enjoyable EP it is from these Swedish glam/sleaze rockers. Why is it all the glam bands are coming from Sweden? Must be something in the water because Danger joins the ranks of the new wave of glam & sleaze alongside other fine Swedish bands such as Crashdiet and Vains of Jenna.
The first thing I have to say is that Jesse Kid’s vocals are just perfect for this kind of music as he delivers a sleazy, sneering, and snotty performance on each track.
As for songs, “On The Run” is the standout for me, so simple and so catchy. “First Touch” is a great opener to set the tone and give you an idea what the band is all about. And how ’bout that cover? Now THAT is a great album cover!
The band has been around since 2003, but only took up the glam/sleaze sound in 2006 (previously playing heavy metal with a few different members) and have yet to release a full studio release. I hope this is only but a taste of things to come because the band has a lot of potential and promise.
Worth tracking down because this EP would not sound out of place in anyone’s 80s glam/sleaze collection… and that’s a good thing.
Highlights: “First Touch”, “California Red”, “Shove It”, “On The Run”
