17 CRASH - Stamina (2022)



17 CRASH - Stamina (2022) - full
various sources 

Tuscan, Italy’s melodic hard rockers 17 CRASH have been around for a while, initially paying homage to the Sunset Strip sleazy rock n’ roll. But musicians and bands are always evolving. They grow, they change, adapt, and overcome to whatever the ever-shifting environment of the musical landscape throws at them. It’s safe to say that 17 Crash have been through this process from a big 80s Sunset Strip vibe of their origins to a mature melodic hard rock sound and now the Italian band are back with their latest album ‘Stamina’.

With ‘Stamina’, 17 Crash show that this swift change is not one aimed at chancing at a new genre because realistically, the sound on this new CD is not a million miles away from that original one. Yes, it is heavier than previously and leans a little more to elaborated material.

The first thing that impress you 17 Crash is now more similar in sound to modern day TNT, especially singer Ros Crash with a phrasing recalling Tony Harnell circa TNT’s ‘My Religion’ era (just listen songs like ‘Soul’ or ‘In My Dreams’). Add a touch of Scandi feel like H.E.A.T, Crazy Lixx, Eclipse and you have what to expect here.

‘Stamina’ shows that 17 Crash have got the endurance to really go for it and play a style of music that they’re finally comfortable with. The record is professionally delivered with a production so sharp and melodic metallic.

Nice sound with some cool riffs and music. Sadly, the songs don't really stick for me. Mostly okay, but nothing great, imo.

    • Have to take that interview with a pinch of salt. Firstly because John said they have tried metal and tried grunge, but none of their albums are really either of those. They are just "modern" sounding which pretty much takes a small pinch of everything really. Yes songs like The Beast are about as close to metal as they have done, none of their albums scream metal or grunge. I also don't think you can really take much from anything John says as he is not the one controlling the band, that is Joey. Think I have said this story before, but a friend of mine is a huge Europe fan and she used to go to all their gigs and even hung out with them a few times. She was a massive fan of John but she said Joey was a lot tougher to get to know as he was like a dictator in the band. He said jump and John (and the others) said how high? I don't think Joey is a bad person or anything like that, just that he likes to run the band how he likes it. And with what Geoffrey just said, it does not matter what Ian hints at with how happy he might be with newer material, he knows what side his bread his buttered on and stays with the band. If he hated it that much, why doesn't he leave? Mostly because he knows this is where he is best off. He has worked with other artists like Glenn Hughes etc over the years, so he knows there is work out there for him, but he must feel that Europe is the best place for him.
    • I remember listening to an interview with Ian Haugland recently where he mentioned that ‘Prisoners in paradise’ was his favourite album and I got a very distinct impression he didn’t love what they were doing these days.    Same dude interviewed Kee Marcelo who said he’d have no interest in returning to Europe, hypothetically, of course, as Norum seems locked in… and he said not a chance if they kept playing what they are these days.    Either way, I hope this story is true because it’s an incredible waste of what could still be a good band. Savage waste, one might say, and I’d love to hear another crack at good music.

    • I think I'm becoming a fan!
    • Daniels,Bell and the drummer are nothing but worthless scabs and posers....I hope Steve Lynch buries these turds through litigation.If he could pull off a small miracle and pull Plunkett' back into the fold for a couple reunion gigs,that alone would be the biggest middle finger to these tossers.
