Children' is an album from a band that had a too
short musical career in the 80's. The band was
formed back in the middle of the 80's when Motley Crüe was on the top, but 'Killer Bee' took a long
break in the end of 90's. The Swedish/Canadian/US
hard rock band Killer Bee released their first
album in 15 years in 2012; 'From Hell and Back' and
this is the follow-up disc to that one.
'Evolutionary Children' is a melodic hard rock
album with a lot of influences from the 80's hard
rock. Big fat Hammond organs and dirty guitars with the
original singer (Brian 'Bee' Frank), who has the right rasp in
his throat. He sings quite similar to Jon Oliva and Mark Tornillo (Accept).
This is an album with pure rock n roll with more
rawness and straight forward power than finesse and
elegance. Anders 'LA' Rönnblom on bass is the
other member from the original line up.
If you like a mix of classic sleaze rock and
melodic hard rock you have a new album you might
like. Killer Bee manage to keep my attention
through the whole album and I recognize much of
the old school rock 'n' roll groove from the 'hair
spray days'. Brian's voice is one big reason why I
doesn't press the skip button on the 'weaker'
I have to mention the great guitar playing from
Jimmy DeLisi. Most of the tracks fit like a glove
for a beer-drinking party. The ballad 'Maybe Baby'
is not the super song on the album. No... the best
tracks are the up-tempo songs that are loaded with tons
of energy and clout.
It's easy to love this disc, but it's quite easy
to forget it as well. Straight forward rock with
big and hard fist-punches in the face. Not a
classic album, just a nice disc for the fans of
classic 80's hard rock.
