REDRUM: "Victims Of Our Circumstances"
Label: RMB Records
Review by Martien Koolen
Six years ago Redrum released their debut album No Turning Back and unfortunately for this Greek-German hard rock band the album did nothing...Now they return with a new melodic hard rock album called Victims of Circumstance and this one is positively better than the debut.
One Of Us opens this album and it is a great song, almost a hard rock anthem, meaning; very catchy. The two ballads on the album Empty Promises and Mother, I'm Coming Home are quite enjoyable and bring back memories of good old Aerosmtih and Whitesnake. Have A Nice Day is a blues like song with a rather impressive guitar solo and songs like Pokerface and Dirty White Boy are classic rockers.
All in all I would say thet this is an enjoyable hard rock album with clear influences from bands like Bon Jovi, Deep Purple, Dokken, Gotthard, Aerosmith and Whitesnake. So, if you fancy any of the mentioned bands, make sure to at least lsten to this album. Highly recommended for listening in your car and scream along to the songs!!
