25072014 - Heavy Tiger "Saigon Kiss"

Heavy Tiger - they had me at "Heavy Tiger"! This power trio from Stockholm Rock City are influenced by KISS, Thin Lizzy and probably their Swedish countrymen in The Hellacopters and Backyard Babies, and they wear these influences proudly without ending up as copykittens. Nope - these female felines have earned their stripes by gigging all over the place (at least in Scandinavia) since 2010, and now, four years later, they have all turned 21 and released their debut album. And although they offer nothing you would call new, the nine songs on "Saigon Kiss" are all catchy as hell with hooks as sharp as the claws of the tiger they have named themselves after. I bet they sound even better live, roaring more then they purr, and as long as they have songs like "Girls Got Balls" that sounds like The Runaways playing something from "Hotter Than Hell" with a little AC/DC thrown in to boot, I'm happy!
