It's More than Rock and Roll

Rated 3/5 (60%) (6 Votes)

If you were around in 1983, you were probably aware of Rock Goddess as a band even if you never heard their music. Arguably the first all-female Heavy Metal band, I'll never forget the ads in magazines featuring three attractive young women holding guitars and drum sticks. They released three albums in the 80s, called it quits, reformed, called it quits again and is now back (as of 2013) with a new EP entitled It's More than Rock and Roll. As it was back in the 80s, Rock Goddess' music is more Hard Rock than Heavy Metal and this new EP has three songs featuring formulaic lyrics about the Rock and Roll lifestyle ("It's More than Rock and Roll" and "We're all Metal") and relationships ("Back Off") with very simple riffs. The lead guitar work of singer Jody Turner is a notch above but still nothing to shout about. It's More than Rock and Roll is somewhere between Lita Ford before Sharon Osborne got her claws on her (circa Dancin' on the Edge) and Joan Jett before she covered "Crimson and Clover." It's probably too simple and light for most Heavy Metal purists but fans of Hard Rock and the NWOBHM may get some mileage out of it.
