Hate Gallery
Viva La Resistance
Style: Modern Punk Influenced Rock
Release date: 28 November, 2011
Playing time: 54:06

Hate Gallery were formed in 2006 in London and developed later in Stockholm by bassist/vocalist Janne Jarvis, who has been a member of Brit Rock heroes Radiator, Queen Adreena and Warrior Soul. This is their second album and their debut 'Compassion Fatigue' (2008) pleased many. An E.P. 'Dead Celebrities' followed in 2009 and now their second complete album is out.

Their music is heavily influenced by the likes of Warrior Soul, Killing Joke and Nine Inch Nails. There is also a lot of dirty riffs to be heard that have resemblance of Motörhead. The music sounds modern, dirty and the song writing is good. The smoky rock voice of Janne sounds very good and the songs have a nice drive. Several songs have nice bass lines like in the song "Satellite". Sometimes the band takes a step back with serene atmospheric songs like "The Becoming". It is an excellent variable rock album that already entered the Finish charts at 26. With the right promotion other countries will follow without a doubt. The songs are packed with melody and there are no fillers on the album.

Without a doubt one of the better melodic dirty rock albums this year. Fans of the bands mentioned above should certainly check this album out.

Nice work!
