Detroit based hard rock band Overloaded is back with another
high-energy hard rock album. I am talking about music with the same
level of intensity that bands like Cinderella, Dangerous Toys and
Skid Row created back in the days when Hard Rock was at its prime.
It is a big mystery to me why no label hasn't had the guts to sign
such a fine and entertaining band like Overloaded. Just like
it was the case with the bands mentioned above, Overloaded is
working their asses off, touring and playing live gaining a
reputation as a strong unit live on stage. And they will continue to
play hard, write great rock hard and believe in their music, no
matter what happens...
They have clearly moved forward since their last couple of EP's, and
come across as a much stronger and more mature unit. 'Regeneration'
is a raw and energetic piece of hard rock, where their 'fuck you'
approach to things shines through. Everything has taken a step or
two forward from the song writing, the musicianship and to the
production - and even if this album doesn't open up some label
employees eyes and ears, then I am sure Overloaded will
continue creating great hard rock and tour their asses off...
If you are into raw hard rock with an attitude, then I suggest you
give these guys a chance. I surely think they have the skills and
the attitude to gain more - well deserved - attention beyond the
