BURNT OUT WRECK (Heavy Pettin’) – This Is Hell (2019)

“This Is Hell” is the new album by BURNT OUT WRECK, the band founded by multi-faceted Gary Moat who previously played drums and was the main songwriter for Scottish cult hard rockers Heavy Pettin’ through the Eighties.
When Heavy Pettin’ folded in ’91, Moat moved up front to play rhythm guitar and sing lead vocals with Mother’s Ruin for the best part of the next quarter of a century. Then in 2014 he shut down that band to concentrate on songwriting but the man needed to express himself performing, and Burnt Out Wreck born.
As you would expect, “This Is Hell” is pure classic hard rock with a strong ’80s feeling, riff-driven songs with a lot of swagger.

FIGHTER V – Fighter (2019)

Just when it seemed the revival of the ’80s wave had reached the top and began to show signs of saturation, here we have some young Swiss guys keeping the flame alive with a debut album that is the quintessence of Eighties AOR / Melodic Rock: FIGHTER V and their first CD “Fighter”, tweaked by talented Swedish producer Jona Tee (keyboardist in H.E.A.T).
Everything in Fighter V, from the band’s logo to aesthetics and, of course, the music, is a celebration of that golden decade.

Pure and simple, “Fighter” is a collection of instant melodic rock hymns made for the arenas, spiced by luxury AOR melodies.
