PLATINUM OVERDOSE – Back For The Thrill (2020)
After garnering fanfare from specialized press with their debut album, LA retro-80s glammy melodic hard rock band PLATINUM OVERDOSE is officially back… ’Back For The Thrill’. That’s the title of the new album.
Formed by experienced musicians in this matter – including Matt Thorr (Rough Cutt), Rick Mead (Syre) and Steve Philbrook (Brass Kitten), they just deliver another knockout blow of pure ’80s pop metal / melodic hard continuing their mantra that the genre is alive and kicking.
From the opening riff of “Psycho Suzi” the 4-piece shot to the chin and the punches keep coming one track after another. Whether it’s the full throttle tracks “No Way Out”, “Rockin’ America” or the anthem “Back In Your City” – you’re sure to find something to bring you back to the glory days when leather and lace reigned supreme.
Dig your teeth into “Give The Night Away” (a love letter to Los Angeles penned by Lance V.) and you’re sure to feel the grittiness of Hollywood Blvd. deep in your soul.
Deemed essential by the book “The Rise, Fall & Rebirth of Hair Metal”, Platinum Overdose build off their wildly successful debut album ‘Murder In High Heels’ by delivering the raucous follow up ‘Back For The Thrill’ which produces nothing short of an adrenaline shot straight to the heart to keep that 80’s blood flow coursing through your veins.
