Hell In The Club: Kamikaze - 10 Years in the Slums

Somewhat of an interim release as this Italian Hard Rock band seemingly prepare to work/release a full blown album; and I’m led to believe this is to celebrate the bands 10th anniversary. 5 tracks with a couple of well worked covers (Alice Cooper and WASP), to enjoy here. `Kamikazi` is a full on rocker that fairly steams along with a cool sense of the dramatic with the guitars well to the fore and a vocal performance that’s right on the money.

`10 Years in the Slums` again comes flying out the traps and delivers on all fronts. The cover versions are both nicely done `He`s Back` being a particularly well conceived number with a nice combination of Keys and Guitars working together to produce a most satisfying result. `Chainsaw Charlie` tries its level best to meet up to the WASP original, but inevitably falls short, but that’s not saying it’s bad in anyway, WASP are a hard act to follow!!

The final track `In Your Eyes` is a updated version of the track that first appeared on an earlier Japanese release, and is a decent enough stab at a power ballad, its pompous without being overbearing and displays a deft enough touch to be very convincing. A solid enough EP to keep fans of the band happy before a full album inevitably appears sometime in the near future.
