Lightning by Psychotic 4
Released: Jul 2006
Label: Indica Records
They look more like Panic! At the Disco, but the roots of this Canadian foursome's sound are clearly Hanoi Rocks/Faster Pussycat/D Generation. And they pull the glam-sleaze off competently enough, despite thin vocals standing in their way. The power ballads generally come closer to the target than the rockers, but non-ballad "Breaking Out" still stands out for its gang shouts. "Petal of Metal" -- not really all that metal, but so what? -- is fun as well. It's also charming how they get a little synthy sometimes.
