Helldorados: Helldorados

Melodic Hard Rock/Metal
4.0/5.0

Wanting to join the ranks of the new generation of sleaze rock is Stuttgart's Helldorados, offering their self-titled debut album on Massacre Records. Fortunately, the band has the skills for the genre: good melodic hard rock with punch and attitude.

Helldorados: tough enough.

Although you might not be convinced of this when you listen to the symphonic instrumental intro, In the Beginning. Then there's the two ballads, the heavily acoustic Changes and more traditional Gone, which seem to reveal Helldorados softer side. After all, even Motley Crue had their Home Sweet Home.

Yet, what surrounds these songs is something entirely different, and that's mostly groove laden hard rock, sometimes nearing metal, with good melodies and nice hooks. And yes, the sleaze factor comes through on Hunter, Girls, and the rather humorous Got Laid. Overall, these tunes are toe-tapping and fist-pumping fun, and suitable for your next road trip. Easily recommended.

In Short

Helldorados self-titled second album is a solid one, offering catchy melodic hard rock with a helping of sleaze attitude and a dash of metal edge.
