SoundtrucK from Greece have a new self-titled album on the market and a new video has just been released.

From their website http://www.soundtruck.gr/:

"From Lynyrd Skynyrd and ZZ-Top to AC/DC, this is what you get when you mix hard rock with southern rock: nine tracks of raw power and energy. These five guys from Athens, Greece, promise to set the wheels of rock 'n roll in motion with their debut album.

The band has made a name for itself for the well-balanced sound and the energy that drives them on stage, and this album is no exception. Raging guitars, catchy riffs, a thundering rhythm section, smooth to raucous vocals, all a testament to the band's style: a mixture of the hard rock and southern rock of the 1970s played to sound completely contemporary. After all, the touch of a genius has made sure of that: all tracks were mastered by George Marino at Sterling Sound, NY.
From the minimalistic impertinence of the opening track, 'Straight To Hell', the painful solitude of 'On The Run' (the only ballad in the album), the country-infused 'Sweet Little Babe', to the blatant debauchery of 'High' and the saucy optimism of 'Take It Easy', the band pays tribute to their heroes, legends like AC/DC, ZZ Top and Lynyrd Skynyrd. At the same time, their diverse musical background helps in establishing their own unique style. Familiar, yet not hackneyed.
If you're new to southern hard rock, this album is a good way to begin your maiden musical voyage. If not, it will remind you of most of the qualities that made rock what it is: uncompromising, unbowed, stubbornly resolute."

Exactly the type of rock I really disliked from the 80's. Not awful at all, but way too plain and boring for me. Does nothing at all for me personally. :(

    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave 
    • Gonna post this as just recently discovered them, and loving what they do. I know most here wont care due to not being their style or not singing in English, but as a Band Maid fan, this shit is right up my street. They are a South Korean band. Posting two songs. One original and one a cover (Maneskin, a band I dont really care about) which is kinda impressive seeing as the song is in Italian, a language they don't speak ha ha
