Vanity Insanity – Piece of her Cake [2017]

Vanity Insanity is a Swedish 80s sleazy hard rock band put together eight years ago, while their debut album was released at very end of past year. Vanity Insanity draws upon the sound of late 80s sleaze/hard rock bands like Skid Row, Guns n’ Roses and Slaughter. The line up features lead singer/guitarist Viggo Vain, bassist Jesper Westermark, guitarist Benjamin Bagge and Jocke Klarstrom on drum duties.

When playing the album, it does not take long for one to realize is that this young band is especially talented. Viggo is proven a well-trained singer who can hit and sustain the high notes. In addition, Klarstrom’s drumming stand out, bringing to front a huge beat complemented by devastating tom sound. Bagge definitely plays his part as the guitarist of the band and is just as technically accomplished as the other members.

I would say that Vanity Insanity puts across a very American hard rock sound as opposed to the European suggesting that “Piece of her Cake” is a very groovy (in a rock sense) album, focusing more on thick riffs than on melodies and this, I suppose, is what differentiates the band from other Swedish newcomer rock acts. The album overall is very consistent and forceful while personal favorites include “On your Knees”, “Drop Dead”, “Under your Spell” and the power ballad “Empty Spaces”.

Vanity Insanity will probably satisfy to the fullest fans of 80s sleaze/hard rock while its robust production will make this debut an undeniable party rock album for anyone willing to give the “Piece of her Cake” debut a chance.
