Full Throttle: Roads of Life

Here's a little something that might please fans of Russian hard rock. I haven't heard of Full Throttle before now, but I do know that they've been inconsistently chugging along for nearly ten years. To date, they have a very small catalogue of music. Their full-length album came back in 2005; from 2007-2010 they took a creative break and got things going again in 2010. This 13-minute EP represents another return to action and a notice to fans that Full Throttle is still at it.

The music here isn't bad, mostly straight-ahead melodic rock, but it isn't terribly memorable. The lead singer channels Pat Benatar most of the time but doesn't bring enough intensity and originality to her performance. The songs seem generally well-written, but they don't have that extra layer of magic that makes them stand apart from their competitors. My favorite track, "Night Fraternity," an ode to the motorcycle lifestyle, has a crunchy and warmly distorted hook, but, like the other tracks, isn't quite enough to make a lasting impression.

Track Listing:
1. Roads of Life
2. Crying Soul
3. Night Fraternity
