Title: Power CrazyLabel: Frontiers Music Srl
here we have album number four, "POWER CRAZY" from
The Treatment and the first with new vocalist Tom Rampton. The
boys have come up with a solid rock album, with influences
ranging from AC/DC, Airbourne, Nazareth and Buckcherry.
Great vocals with a down
and dirty sound and I'm sure the songs will sound immense
track "Letís Get Dirty" has a great driving riff
and chorus. Ramptonís vocal has a Buckcherry/Airbourne
feel and you could be forgiven for thinking that the
Power" is another fast paced rocker, some hard rock
blues with a punky edge.
along comes "On The Money", a head nodding,
chugging along tune with a blues feel. Once again Rampton's
vocals are a joy on here.
first track to be released from the album "Bite
Back", it has an eerily early AC/DC vibe to it,
bringing back memories of when I first
saw Bon Scott. I can imagine this being a live
favourite amongst fans.
then onto the slower more bluesier feel of "Luck Of The
Draw", some great wailing guitars on this one.
up is the high energy riffing of "Hang 'Em High",
a storming track that shows The Treatment deliver rock n'
roll as it should be even in an X-Factor generation.
With Her Name" and "King Of The City, great songs,
great vocals with a punk, hard rock, 80's metal vibe, solid,
high energy tunes.
we have the swaggering, slow blues of "Waiting For The
Call" before kicking up the energy with "Laying It
Down", a hard rock tune with a great groove.
I saw the title of the next song "The Fighting
Song", it immediately made me think
of Thin Lizzy/AC/DC, and there's definitely an AC/DC/Airbourne
feel to this hard rocking tune.
track on the CD is "Falling Down", a catchy hard
rocker that will have you nodding ya head and singing along.
If there were any justice this band would be BIG, but we know how fickle the music business is these days. From first listen you're gonna love this album. It's got it all, great songs, strong melodies, big riffs and a great debut vocal performance from Tom Rampton.
