Chet Thompson – Slamnation [1992]

A guitar student of Randy Rhoads in his teens, CHET THOMPSON is one of the most underrated (and unknown) American axe-man. He shined as main guitarist in Hellion’s prime time, and recorded various solo albums.
“Slamnation” was the first under his own moniker, but in fact this is a ‘real band’ comprising the talents of Dave ‘Animal’ Spitz (Great White, Paul Sabu) on bass, Stet Howland (W.A.S.P.) and the amazing Neil Thomas at the mic.

Recorded in 1992 but released in 1996 only in Japan, “Slamnation” shows Chet Thompson’s mastery on the six-strings via sharp melting riffs and stupendous solos, but this is not a ‘flashy guitar man’ album. This sounds like a true, tight Classic American Hard Rock band delivering eight monster stomping rockers. Neil Thomas owns a raspy & powerful set of pipes especially designed for this type of music, and the rhythm section is a blast.

“Sweet Lil’ Sister”, “Don’t Wanna Dance”, “Rock-A-Bye Love” or “Heaven’s BurninĀ“” will rock your socks off in the best Skid Row meets Ratt meets W.A.S.P. Californian tradition of the genre. There’s no place for ballads here, this is pure hot US Hard Rock. Top notch Classic American Hard Rock.
