Emil Ekbladh – vocals, Christopher Olsson – guitar & background vocals, Björn Wilander – bass & background vocals, Markus Winberg – drums & percussion...they are the four lads hailing from Sweden that call themselves the band Dirty Passion.
Dirty Passion describe their music as Heavy Metal, heavily influenced by the old school bands from the 1970's and 1980's. I must agree the sound of Dirty Passion is in this range. Musically they have pointers towards bands as early Ratt, April Wine, Y & T and the like.
Formed in 2006 they finally made it to their first album in 2010 with Different Tomorrow. It has become a solid album full of heavy riffing and solos. Emil is a good vocalist, and his delivery suits the music very well. The band have been on the road with Y&T and have gained a fast audience for their music. Listening to the album they deserve it.
There are a few songs on the album, like "1.000.000 Voices" and "Liar" that stick from point one. After a few spins I find myself singing along, and this obviously means they have done something right. This definitely is an album that will be ending up in my car, as this type of stuff is my kinda driving music, although I need to put it in cruise control else I might see myself ending up with speeding tickets.
Definitely a hit boys- great debut album!
