WILD WET: "Cocktail In Bloodshed"

Rating: 5 /10

Label: Indie 2011

Review by Kimmo Toivonen

Wild Wet are a young sleaze rock band from Italy. This is their first album, and it does show some promise. The next Guns'n Roses they aren't just yet, but give 'em a few years and they might evolve into something.

The band are capable of writing pretty decent hard rock tunes and have an ear for melody, but the vocals (and lyrics) might be a bit too much. "Dnl Crystal" has a really thick Italian accent and things don't improve when drummer "Matt Nyx Frye" takes over for one song. That one song ("Ashtray") is by far the weakest song of the album, strangely reminding me of the wellknown Finnish weirdos 22-Pistepirkko and their quirky, "homemade" amateur sound. Don't go there, guys...

Tracks to check out: "Before You Die", "Last Tattoo" and "Crazy Little Star". My advice for the band would to get a frontman with a better command of the english language.
