Easy Trigger: Bullshit
Easy Trigger Bullshit Review

Easy Trigger: Bullshit

Melodic Hard (Sleaze/Glam) Rock
4.0/5.0

From the fertile Italian hard rock soil comes yet another band pitching Eighties style melodic sleaze hard rock. This time it's Easy Trigger from Verona with their first album, Bullshit. But it's not really.

Like their label mates, The Unripes, Easy Trigger pretty much nails their chosen genre. Raucous, rowdy, rock and roll drives the core of Bullshit. It's a bit edgier than The Unripes, possibly having more a punk underpinning. You definitely get the punk thing on the title track. The harder edgier sound comes through on a song like Hatesphere. The more catchy melodic rock side turns up on Rocket Girl (best song) and The Dreams, yet without losing any of the overarching grittiness.

Some of that comes from Franky's (all the band goes by first names alone) vocals which have a raw smoker's cough raspiness. (Perhaps that's why they wrote the unusual ballad Smokers Die Young.) Yet, he has surprising range from punk to metal screamer.

In the end, Easy Trigger comes to rock, and rock hard. Bullshit basically swerves between the pylons of punk, hard (sleaze) rock, and metal with relative ease with little room for odes to love lost and lost girlfriends. Recommended.
