Adrenaline Rush from Stockholm, Sweden is a five-piece with members handpicked for this debut album. Fronted by an amazing looking female vocalist: Tåve Wanning, who is sort of starting a new career in hard rock. She has already had a successful career in Sweden as a teen pop idol, in the duo Peaches. They were very successful between 2000 and 2005, and Tåve's career began when she was 8 years old.

Under the secure guidance of producer, musician, and song writer Erik Mårtensson comes a debut album that has attention front and center on Tåve Wanning. The songs have been cut for her fragile voice, think a young Debbie Gibson, and the rest of the band plays supporting act most of the time. This is pure 80's bubble-gum hard rock with catchy and easy sing-a-long refrains, a lot of "hay-hay's", "oh-oh's" and so on...

The supporting cast does have a very solid back-ground: Ludvig Turner (guitars, Reach), Alexander Hagman (guitars), Marcus Johansson (drums, Reach) and Soufian Ma'Aoui (bass, Houston), and they lay down a serious foundation for the young lady to shine. And she steps up to the challenge and delivers a more than solid performance.

With influences coming from the likes of Mötley Crüe, Black 'n' Blue and Warrant, you know what to expect, and their self-titled debut album ends up being a respectable start; a solid party rock album - nothing more, noting less.
