Title - 'Cold Blooded' [Vinyl]
Artist - Strange Karma
For those not in the know, and yes, that included me, Australian rockers Strange Karma are one of the rare few bands that successfully manage to combine the powerhouse rock elements of Led Zeppelin with the flair and pomposity reminiscent of Queen.
Sure they've had their ups and downs over the years, but what successful rock band hasn't. Featuring Martin Strange (lead vocals, piano, guitar), Paul Strange (lead guitar, backing vocals), and Jason McDonald (drums), and having already brought out the album America (formerly known as Volume 1), they have just released a brand new VINYL-ONLY album of pure, unadulterated rock, Cold Blooded.
Comprised of 10 tracks, each of them as melodically powerhaus as the next, it's amazing to think that such a band as Strange Karma need any promotion these days. Their music is rock perfection, each tracks individual lyrical content as centered, as furtively mischievous as one would hope, and with Martin Strange and his gang sounding as much like The Cult as I've ever heard any other band come unintentionally close, it seems Cold Blooded could well open the eyes of those not aware in this business.
2. Devil From the Moon
3. Crying For Your Love
5. I Believe (London Town)
6. Heart Beat
7. Should’ve Seen It Coming
8. Cold Blooded
9. Hey Man
Again, this is an incredible risk to take for a band trying to be heard, to release their brand new full length album as a VINYL-ONLY product, but this band is all about taking risks, pushing boundaries. Inclusive of the lead single to radio, 'Devil From The Moon', Australia’s best kept secret is now on the brink of becoming the definitive next movement in rock and roll.
I'm now on board, my eyes and (more importantly) ears more attune to Strange Karma than ever before. I hope yours will be too after buying this album, giving it a spin, and telling others about it thereafter - which you will, trust me!
