Hailing from the German region known as Swabia, these glam rockers are considered as THE great hope of the German Hard 'N' Heavy scene, with many so called "experts" seeing a huge potential in this young band, and their third album released soon, will undoubtedly give them a great shot at becoming an international major player.

The experiences of recent years have shaped the band and increased their
professionalism in every department.
The new album is still catchy and, even though the classic metal influences are
still there, they now more consistently than ever before display their very own
brand of sleazy heavy rock.

"For us it is a great honour to play at festivals such as ‘Bang Your Head," says
singer Hannes Braun. “We are especially proud that we have a mixed audience
and appeal to both young and older fans. If KISSIN’ DYNAMITE are in town,
definitely go to the party! Everyone is welcome to rock out with us!”

"Our debut album" Steel Of Swabia” was released in Germany/Austria/Switzerland, as well as in Finland and Japan" Hannes continues. "For our second album, "Addicted To Metal", we had the opportunity to release worldwide for the first time – not just in Germany, as AFM Records was covering all other territories. The collaboration with AFM worked so well
that we decided, now, to work with them worldwide and at home as well.”

In July 2008 "Steel Of Swabia” was released; a debut album of teenagers with their singer just 16 years old! What puzzled everyone though was how much this "teen band" rocked; just as good as the greats: Mötley Crue, Whitesnake, AC/DC, Guns'n'Roses! No wonder this first-class debut album was released on the major label EMI!

The quality of this young group was only too obvious and also so enjoyable was that the prominence of metal was so thrilled as well, so in fact legendary Udo Dirkschneider (ex-
Accept/U.D.O.) contributed vocals to the title track of the second album "Addicted To Metal" in 2010.

You know its always nice to be surprised and this one did just that, i was expecting typical tired sleeze by numbers, instead i got very well thought out mature rock.

Superb vocal delivery, great music, all very well produced and played with some skill.
At times they sound like they have more in common with the Scorpions than GNR, in some ways there image does not do them justice, this is quality euro metal!!

Must mention the track 'Operation Supernova', an anthemic rocker that has "Hit" written all over it.

Rating 9/10
For Fans Of: Scorpions, Bullet, WASP, Accept, Motley Crue, Queensryche.
