I fully understand and appreciate the need to stay true to your roots and sound authentic. It’s like the past 30 years have passed without Chrome Molly even noticing, because Hoodoo Voodoo is a homage to the hay-days of NWoBHM, both in spirit and in sound.
If you take one of the worst productions I’ve heard in the past decade, add a mediocre vocalist and some pretty average songs, you sadly end up with one of the most bland albums I’ve heard in a long time. Only a few very fine guitar soli lights up this otherwise boring album.
NWoBHM aficionados might disagree with me, but this is simply too average to rock me in the year 2017… in 1985 I might have look at it with different eyes!
