‘Guitars instead of missiles!’
Hard Rock of Israel, which I’ve never experienced. Chase The Ace is the band that surprised me alone already optically positively with their second album. A fine, three-piece foldable Digi-Pack with cute colorful comic cover is a real eye-catcher. But musically of four from the Holy Land, in which only the guitarist comes from the UK has a lot to offer. Basically the guys classical Party Hard Rock, which is often on AC / DC (“Fortune Son” or “Full Throttle”) play recalls, however, other features such as punk (“Bad Seed”), country blues (“Desert Rose”) or having Sleaze (“The Stalker”). That brings over thirteen songs a lot of fun, because more variety does not go without then to appear sometime implausible. But here everything is to the effect in the green zone, albeit with “Sharp Dressed Man” (ZZ Top) and “Fortune Son” (Creedence Clearwater Revival) Two cover songs were chosen by the musicians. But also are nestled in the slightly dirty overall sound. Unfortunately, the last three pieces falling from high and some seem a bit trivial as the first three quarters of the CD. Chase The Ace bring nevertheless guaranteed any party started, because the music is simply ultra-cool, groovy and also produces fat. As the voice of frontman Roi Vito Peleg and the solos of the British Dan Parsons know absolutely convincing, I have no choice but to recommend you to Rockers and Rollers this disc. Overall, therefore, a strong concept that makes you forget the difficult political situation in Israel. Guitars instead of missiles at the Gaza Strip … here we are doing !!
