It's a solid CD. Vocals aren't great... I think at times he's probably trying to put forth early WASP vibes? Backing vocals and the general vibe is cool. I guess it's one of those albums that does show a lot of potential, and I'd be looking forward to a more refined product next time around. But it's solid...

From the songs posted here I felt his vocals were a mix between Blackie and Kevin Dubrow, but nowhere near as good.

I really like this album - not every song on it but there are some surprisingly catchy melodies all over. Personally I think the singer adds great energy to the mix. It reminds me of the earlier Bai Bang ("closer to you")

Was just googling Smoking Snakes and most of the links came up for the Sabaton song of the same name. So, given they are Swedish, I reckon they were named for this song. The song itself is about a Brazilian WWII force nicknamed "Smoking Snakes" who fought against the Nazis (it is Sabaton, remember). So, all in all, a pretty cool band name with some history behind it.
