Airless - Fight (CD)

by Maria Kallinikou at 27 November 2008, 5:41 PM

Fight, that's the title of the new album from AIRLESS, a Spanish band which formed back in 2000 and has already two albums in its archive, Airless (2002) and 2nd Round (2005). Fight is their third album and their second released by Lion Music.

You can't teach an old dog new tricks, but can you teach a young dog old tricks? Well, AIRLESS has proved that you can. Fight is an album overflowing with the sounds, the energy, and the mentality of the golden era of the melodic Hard Rock sound. Don't Give Up opens the album and as the tracks move on you realize with what you are dealing with. Among Time To Say Goodbye, Now Or Never, Suffering, Crying For Your Love, you will find elements reminding you of WHITESNAKE, HARDLINE, BON JOVI, WHITE LION and in recent approaches STEELHOUSE LANE. Twist Of The Wrist and Blame (The Darkness Part II) are moving to faster and heavier paths. The vocals of Inaki Lazakano are definitely a plus to the whole package.

In general words, Fight is a really good album, so does its recording, apart from the suspicion that in some parts the sound needs a little boost. At that point let's underline that the production has been taken over, exclusively, by Roberto Rodrigo, who is considered to be a prominent guitarist in Spain.

A 'not to miss' release, if you are a devotee of the melodic hard sound. Just one last observation (since AIRLESS are with a third album), it would be an excellent, though delayed, idea to put an English version to their website.
