Definitely a band to keep your eye on.

I've been following the career of the German Melodic Rock outfit known as Kissin' Dynamite since their 'Steel Of Swabia' debut hit the ground running in 2008. I was immediately impressed that a bunch of teenagers, who had grown up listening to the likes of the Scorpions, Whitesnake and Bon Jovi, had decided to form a group and then to try to duplicate some of the success that their musical idols had achieved. That they got quite close to doing just that was probably the most impressive thing of all.

Over the following two albums, the five young musicians who made up this band continued to grow and mature as song-writers and musicians and this maturity has culminated in their strongest and, for me, best album so far, namely 'Megalomania'. Of course the love for the bands I mentioned earlier can still be found rearing its head at times in their music but now that they are in their early twenties, KD have finally written an album stamped all the way through with their own personal band identity and this identity really shines in their new songs.

'Megalomania' itself has a much harder edge than the European Rock sound the band had on their first three albums, and this harder style gives the new tracks an American Hard Rock feel, which is prevalent throughout the writing and playing on this new album.

Does this in any way change the quality of KD's songs? Far from it... when you're listening to 'DNA', 'VIP In Hell', the emotional ballad 'Fireflies', the punchy 'Deadly', 'Running Free' or the powerfully arranged, played and sung 'Legion Of The Legendary', you find yourself once again being mightily impressed by a group of young musicians who show no fear in what they're doing and are happily recording great Hard Rock albums time after time; which is all you could ask for really.

If Kissin' Dynamite can continue to make albums of such high quality, then as the old adage goes, "the world will be their oyster"; definitely a band to keep your eye on.
