Rust n' Rage - Showdown

Recommended Posts

ruostetta.jpg

These young guys from Finland releases their debut 'Showdown' January 18th.

From their label Ektro Records:

"Plastic TV idols and schlager jerk-offs, leave the premises! The West Coast of Finland is going to explode! Hot, young, armed and dangerous, Rust n' Rage is roaming the rooftops of Pori city. Barely 20-year-olds, Vince, Johnny, Jezzie and Eddy pledge their allegiance to rock gods such as Mötley Crüe, Guns n' Roses and Judas Priest.

After two demos and three years of furious live performances, these hellraisers are releasing their debut album, Showdown. It is a fuel-soaked pilgrimage to the neon-lit streets of ultimate decadence. The eleven outlaw anthems deal with the unbearable heat of the night and sleazy she-devils, showing true promise in keeping the glam metal flame alive. Showdown is released through co-operation of Ektro Records and Karkia Mistika. You can't take ROCK'N'ROLL from our souls!"

Not wild about the vocals - they should get someone with longer hair and a lesser accent. ;) Otherwise, the look and sound pretty cool.

Sounds good to me and the album cover gets supreme bonus points...

Received this release today and after the first spin I got the feeling it's pretty good. It's not awesome by any means but the guys are young and give them a couple of years, some experience under the belt and the second effort could be a killer.

They've got the attitude and the image for greater things...

I agree to the accent. It bugs me as well.

    • I'll give you one example. Tax cuts. Everyone loves tax cuts right?? and according to Trump every American got a tax cut in 2017.....but here are the facts - According to estimates from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, while most Americans will benefit at least somewhat, the top fifth of earners get 70 percent of the bill’s benefits, and the top 1 percent get 34 percent. The new tax treatment for “pass-through” entities — companies organized as sole proprietorships, partnerships, LLCs, or S corporations — will mean an estimated $17 billion in tax savings for millionaires in 2018   Sorry that's just wrong. And this will add over $1 trillion to national debt. Tax cuts for people expire in 2025/6 while corporation is permanent. Hello austerity measures. Trust me that ain't fun as the UK has found out for the last few years after Labour almost bankrupted our country. 
    • by intelligent he means looking into things beyond the basic stats and lies which are generally used to gloss / cover up what resides beneath And yes Nordic Union will receive no more spins from me. Besides being one paced and generally dull the songs aren't helped by Atkins straining throughout. 
    • I like the song, country vibe or whatever it is. Agree with comments that it wasn't what I expected when I saw the pic. It kinda looks like 3 band members, and they didn't like the look of the 3 of them together, so they asked a sound mixer to stand in the background lol
    • And by intelligent I'm assuming you mean people that follow what's trending in hip circles without looking into things for themselves?  I'm Australian and give very, very little shit about US politics. But I still listen to things and I don't think Russ is alone in his opinion that Obama was a very poor president and that, whether you agree with his politics or not, Trump actioned more stuff in one month than Obama did in years?  Nordic Union album still sucks balls. 
    • Very different to what their image suggests. Lose the country vibe and they're onto something. Not bad at all. 
    • Acoustic rocker( I wouldn't say "Country"). I like it  
    • On first listen through, this album is "meh".  Lots of songs that sound very similar and nothing that sounds particularly inspired.  
    • just heard another snippet and it sounds identical again. I'll give this a go for sure but this dudes songs all sound the same. it's a bit weird
