Review Type: 

Guns of Glory is a Finnish band made up of four young machos releasing their debut record. The album holds nine straightforward rock & roll songs. It is very clear that these guys get inspired by bands as Guns n’ Roses, Motley Crue, Danger Danger, Love/Hate, AC/DC, Rose Tattoo etc. The lyrics are also much straightforward with none of the ideological/political/philosophical themes about anything. They deal only with women, drinking, love/hate relation ships and partying in general. It is in no sense a special or remarkable release, it is not even original either, yet it is not their goal as they only want to entertain and have fun. Keeping that in mind, I think that this album can be viewed as a success.

If you’re into a mix of hard and sweaty rock n roll as played in the 80s then I’m sure you’ll enjoy this CD as much as I did, but please promise not to dig too deep into the lyrics or cover artwork, you’ll get disappointed.
