The Order: Rock N Rumble
The Order Rock N Rumble CD Album Review

The Order: Rock N Rumble

Hard Rock/Heavy Metal
4.0/5.0

With their previous album, 1986, Swiss band The Order essentially declared their musical manifesto. They play old school hard rock and heavy metal straight out of the Eighties, but without the spandex, big hair, and Aquanet.

The Order

With their new and fifth album, Rock N Rumble, The Order continues preaching their gospel of classic hard rock. Once more the band reminds me of an intersection of KISS, AC/DC, maybe some Def Leppard, and then drop in one of your favorite Eighties LA hair hard rock bands. The Order's formula is simple really. Build songs around an infectious rock groove, add guitar and vocal harmony and melody, and then spice things up with catchy riffs and blazing guitar solos. To make things a bit sharper, The Order can inject a heavy metal edge into their songs as with Fight or Womanizer. Additionally, the band can keep things brisk, adding a speedy tempo to Karma and Gimme A Yeah. It appears the also have a softer side with the hard rock ballad, Turn The Pages, yet the song still has some heavy riffs and a forceful finish in the second half. All in all, Rock N Rumble finds The Order firmly established in their Eighties classic hard rock groove. If you enjoy that sound and that period in music, you will like this album. Recommended.
