VANITY INSANITY - Piece Of Her Cake (2017-2018)

Founded about eight years ago in Storuman - is there any city in Sweden without a hard rock band? - VANITY INSANITY is another example of Scandinavian young acts playing this genre influenced by the 80s style, as heard on their album "Piece Of Her Cake" released at very end of past year.

Musically, Vanity Insanity put themselves in the '80s American Californian sleazy hard rock stylings, and the first reference in sound I heard is Skid Row.
Initial track 'On Your Knees' provides a proper introduction to what's going to happen on this album; strong sleazy riffs, bouncy rhythm section, gang choruses and singer Viggo Vain delivering crisp-sharp vocals with phenomenal voice control.

'Drop Dead' is more straightforward hard rock, punchy and melodic. The bass is given a lot of space providing a pumping foundation on all songs, especially in the heavy 'Dented Halo', very Guns N' Roses-like.

Much more melodic hard rock oriented is 'Under Your Spell', a highlight. The introductory guitar arrangement is quite original, then the song evolve into an organic midtempo with great verses and a melodious chorus. The vocals are different here, providing variation. Very, very good tune.

Of course we have a power ballad as well, 'Empty Spaces', with clean electric guitars and a chorus recalling Slaughter, or even Stryper 80s ballads.

Vanity Insanity is another proof that the Scandinavian rock scene has nailed the 80s hard rock scence like no other.
With such a quality debut album it will be exciting to see what the band does next. They have the skills for bigger things for sure, and claim their 'piece of the cake'.
Highly Recommended

    • That is one terrible album cover 
    • From Frontiers: BREAKING NEWS: Frontiers Music Srl are delighted to announce the release of “Ride To Nowhere”, the third studio album by Inglorious on January 25, 2019. The debut single & video from the album, “Where Are You Now?” is out now. The album will be released on CD, Limited Edition Box Set (CD+T-shirt), Vinyl, Limited Edition Crystal Vinyl (exclusive to Frontiers webstore), Limited Edition White Vinyl (exclusive to the Inglorious webstore), and Digital formats. Pre-order HERE: http://radi.al/RideToNowhere

      Frontiers Store: https://www.frontiers.shop/ In amongst their touring commitments, Inglorious spent 2018 writing and recording their third studio album, “Ride To Nowhere”. A much darker, more reflective album than their previous releases, the new songs further hone the Inglorious sound – the pulsating rhythms, driving guitars and infectious vocal melodies. “This album is different in many ways. The songs came about very quickly. As with all our songs we start with a riff, and this time having new guitarist Drew added a new and heavier feel to a couple of songs. We wrote the basics mostly together all in one room on acoustic guitars and then I went away and crafted the stories I wanted to tell. For me this album is very personal. I am for the first time writing about a lot of my feelings, relationships and losses...” – Nathan James “On this album I feel that the songs are a true reflection of what we’ve been through over the past few years - both as a band and as individuals. You’ve got the highs, the lows and lessons learned along the way. The making of this album was at a time when we all had our own personal situations and changes to deal with. I feel that this definitely comes through on the recordings and particularly songs like ‘Tomorrow’, ‘Where Are You Now?’ and ‘Glory Days”. – Colin Parkinson The recording of “Ride to Nowhere” involves for the first time new guitarist Drew Lowe, who says “The album is the next step for the band in maturity. Being that it's my first, I wasn't sure what to expect, but as soon as we started we knew what type of record was coming. Hopefully the fans will love it as they follow us on the musical journey.” From the body blow riffs of the first single “Where Are You Now?”, to the beautiful melodies and bluesy overtones of “I Don’t Know You,” from the assault of “Freak Show” to the acoustic ballad “Glory Days”, “Ride to Nowhere” is an absolute gem of an album, showing not only all the influences from iconic rock albums of the 70’s, but also offering the band’s own sound and interpretation. As with Inglorious “II”, the album was mixed by the legendary Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith). “There’s a lot of variety on this album, more so than the previous ones and that I really like. Sonically I think it sounds more fresh, contemporary in a sense and that goes for a bunch of songs on the album as well. Just the singles alone are different than how we’ve sounded in the past, but still have the Inglorious feel and vibe! Lastly I also think that musically it’s better than the previous albums, everyone plays very tasteful, soulful and collectively I feel that it’s perfect!” – Andreas Eriksson “We’re all really happy with the way the new record sounds and look forward to seeing how the fans receive it. I personally can’t wait to play the new material live on the road!”- Phil Beaver   Tracklisting: 1. Where Are You Now?
