The Grammers – Journey (2015)


Instantly a top contender for the catchiest and most engaging release of 2015, today we have Finland’s The Grammers and their release “Journey”. Delivering 11 tracks of vibrant Hard Rock, this band has a very playful and engaging sound that instantly grabs your attention.

Expertly selected to kick off this release, “Journey” has a superbly engaging chorus section that will stick in your head for days. The track is quite moody and very well crafted, similar to the approach that Crimson Tears used to take in their music. As the band pummels through the catchy “Brother” and the superbly executed “Hey Mama”, we instantly notice the band’s very positive energy and great deal of fun they seem to have when delivering such lively songs.

Taking a step back and focusing on a more passive and serious vibe, “Kids”, “Glitter & Glow” and “Sweet Liberation” allow the listener to nicely relax and get on a drinking mood. A personal favorite of ours is the Dio’s “Holy Diver”-esque “Sign of the War” and its super catchy music. The vocals are quite fitting and very commanding, further showcasing Hannu’s talents. However, the music is what makes this song extremely appealing and very epic in nature.

Further showcasing their versatility, tracks like “U.S of A” and “Home Love” showcase the band’s infinite musical arsenal with members playing multiple style of pianos/synths and guitars, allowing each song to have its own unique and engaging elements. Closing with the memorable “Tsar Bomba”, the band nicely summarizes all their strengths in one very epic song that will leave you wanting more. “Journey” is one of those albums were all tracks are equally good and you smile while listening to it from start to finish. So if you like lively Hard Rock, look no further and get a copy of this excellent release.
