Addicted to Metal

Rated 3.55/5 (70.91%) (11 Votes)

Now this is fun. Kissin' Dynamite sound like they were parachuted from the mid-80s, playing relatively commercial Heavy Metal not unlike what Def Leppard (among others) did, though generally on the harder edge. This is the kind of stuff where some metalheads and people into more commercial hard rock can find common ground. It's cheesy, it's catchy, and just plain fun for the most part. Some of the songs are almost embarrassingly cheesy and catchy, yet they all have a little thing that just keeps the finger away from that skip button.

The vocalist is pretty good for the genre, borrowing the style of many 80s vocalists with clean, soaring vocals delivered with a good range – anything from Bon Jovi-esque to a more traditional Heavy Metal, more aggressive style. The guy could even front some modern Power Metal bands – check out the vocals on "All Against All" for a good example, which incidentally sounds more like a Power Metal song from a recent album than anything else on Addicted to Metal.

If you're in the mood for fun, feel-good, commercial Heavy Metal, then Addicted to Metal may just be what the doctor ordered.
