Sledge Leather: Imagine Me Alive
Sledge Leather - Imagine Me Alive Review

Sledge Leather: Imagine Me Alive

Heavy/Power Metal
3.5/5.0

Sledge is the reunion of vocalist Leather Leone (Chastain, Rude Girl, Malibu Barbi) and drummer Sandy Sledge (Rude Girl, Malibu Barbi, Warbride, WeaponsVan) hoping to pick up where Rude Girl Left off, revisiting their classic heavy metal roots. Frankly, these gals make a powerful duo. Leather's metal vocals have stood the test of time remaining strong, and Sledge can wail on those skins.

Yet, their Imagine Me Alive is a somewhat uneven affair, mostly due to the many brief segues that fill the album. Of eleven tracks, five are short instrumentals, sometimes with minimal vocals. It should be mentioned that the Piano Reprise to Her Father's Daughter is performed by Sledge, who adds her piano accents elsewhere. The other six cuts are prime classic heavy metal, with enough speed to put them in the power metal category at times. Notable are the title track, One Glimpse, and Lost Forgiveness.

Ultimately, Imagine Me Alive is an interesting album of classic heavy metal, but mostly it leaves you hoping for something more, less little stuff and more of the big tunes. Otherwise, this is easily recommended.






In Short

Sledge Leather's Imagine Me Alive is an interesting album of classic heavy metal, but mostly it leaves you hoping for something more, less little stuff and more of the big tunes.
