Pump - Against Everyone's Advice (CD)
Release Date: 12/07/10
Influenced by likes of Skid Row, Tesla and Dokken and armed with a bagful of party songs, PUMP's debut album kicks ass!
It either takes a whole bunch of guts or just a totally reactionary mindset to play the kind of music these German newcomers do. Influenced by the likes of Skid Row, Tesla and Dokken, and armed with a bagful of party songs, their debut 'Against Everyone's Advice' is clearly aimed at the dwindling clientele of traditional hardrock sounds. Under the guidance of Tommy Newton, who used to work in the Golden Eighties with German cult melodic acts like Victory and Helloween, Pump gets the right sound that respects the crunchiness of party rock of olden times as well as a powerful production as we have come to expect in the new millennium. So what you get here is an ok traditional hardrock album, defying recklessly all modern sounds, but never as dirty as known from bands like the Poor or even Rose Tattoo. If you like the aforementioned bands then Pump will be like the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel, all other people better not even listen to this.
