Tracks 01. Love Denied, 02. Make It Last, 03. Malicious Mistress, 04. Seduxxxion, 05. Daddy’s Little Girl

Profile This indie was a tremendous find, as the band plays excellent Hair Metal music in the vein of Motley Crue, Tuff and Black N Blue – these guys are high energy, heart pumping, and provide for a stunning 5 tracks.  This mini album were available for a short time on the band’s now defunct website – not many of these are floating around.

Tracks 01. Slowly Nowhere, 02. Bad Seed, 03. Alone, 04. Wilted Love, 05. Pieces Of Me, 06. Yesterday’s News, 07. Dirty Hands

Profile The band hails from California and they play energetic, guitar dominated Hard Rock, 90s style. The band certainly can jam, and they play music similar in style to Full Throttle and Atomic Up.  Fans of 90s style Hard Rock would thoroughly enjoy this indie release. This is the band’s debut album which is very hard to find.

Rating 76/100

Band Members Mike Kubik – Guitars, Jason Fernandez – Guitars, Eric Sandrich – Keyboards, Jim Jones – Bass, Freddy Krumins – Drums,bass,vocals

Tracks 01. Ain’t So Hard, 02. Run, 03. Tribe/Heart Full Of Dirt, 04. Midnight Sally, 05. Straight From Hell, 06. Red Zone, 07. I Lied, 08. Cycle Chick, 09. Hog Ridin Sumbitch, 10. Sentimental Rockin, 11. Frightening

Profile Fear Brothers indie release from 1998 by Washington based Heart Full of Dirt, a Harley-fueled, classic hard rock with a Texas twang and a rich infusion of Americana. This album is extremely difficult to locate, as it was released in very low numbers 17+ years ago.  The band plays high energy Southern style Hair Metal/Hard Rock in the vein of AC/DC, Foghat, Sister Whiskey, Tesla and Southgang.  The band has a very edgy style, yet raw and still melodic.  Tough find!
