Spiders: Shake Electric

Hailing from, of course, Sweden, the four piece band known as Spiders are set to unveil their sophomore release, Shake Electric. Featuring Ann-Sofie Hoyles (vocals), John Hoyles (guitar), Olle Griphammar (bass), and Ricard Harryson (drums), Spiders take their love for classic '70s rock and inject a modern twist. This is pretty infectious stuff, with crisp rockers like "Lonely Nights", "Mad Dog", and "Back on the Streets" sounding not unlike a cross between vintage UFO and David Bowie's Ziggy Stardust era. Ann-Sofie's vocals are quite powerful, as she soars over the meaty guitar riffs of Hoyles on the catchy "Control" and delivers some dreamy, emotional lines on the bluesy "Hard Times". Though most of the songs are fairly short, the 4+ minute "War of the World" lets the band stretch out a bit, as this blistering hard rocker grabs you by the throat with some killer '70s styled riffs, pounding rhythms, and dynamic vocals. "Bleeding Heart" has some cool riffs and a hook laden chorus that reminds of early KISS, and the fun title track grooves and thumps like vintage AC/DC.

Shake Electric is proof that Spiders are a band ready to take the world by storm, and have delivered here a really enjoyable set of classic styled hard rock songs that any lover of vintage sounds will certainly find plenty of appeal in. A band to watch...closely.
