Hailing from New Jersey, US, LOADED GUN released by themselves their self-titled debut some months ago, but now Perris Records has
picked up the band and released the album worldwide.
If you're one of those people that wish for the past and ask 'Why can't
they make music like they used to?' then you'll be interested in "Loaded Gun", a straight-forward brand of ’80s influenced hard rock.
Yes, they take inspiration from every band of the era and genre but they
do it so well that you don't really care. Loaded Gun already supported
Lynch Mob, Lillian Axe, Raven, etc, and contributed with a version of
Ain't No Love In The Heart Of The City to the Still Of The Night: A
Millennium Tribute To Whitesnake.
You know from the album cover that this will be classy hard rock and
when you see the band members in Poison and While Lion T-shirts then you
know exactly what you're getting and they don't really disappoint
throughout this 10 track album.
Tenor bluesy vocals, strong riffs, tales of love and/or sex all wrapped
in a tin marked RnR are the order of the day and at various points
you'll be getting some Warrant ('Lie Alone'), Great White ('Addicted'),
LA Guns (in title track 'Loaded Gun') and a little The Cult in the
darker 'The System Has Failed' - and all at harder side, not their
Of course, you get the obligatory ballad - 'You Were Mine', in the vein
of Cinderella - and while it might not replace the classics of their era
for you, it certainly has enough to shine the light on the band for
being more than just a bog-standard act of sexual deviants as is often
the case with young band chasing and trying to recreate the hard rock
They even go through some more 'metal' moments in a song such as
'Revolution', while 'She Likes Thunder And Lightning' delves in to the
'70s blockbusters of bands such as The Sweet.
Loaded Gun seem to have all the ingredients to produce an album of note
in the near future - they need a renowned producer and polish some vocal
arrangements - but this self-titled debut rocks with lots of melody and
effective riffs, delivered with the unpolluted spirit of a band hungry
"Loaded Gun" is Classic US Hard Rock done from the heart, and as said, Rocks.
