Horns up to Kissin’ Dynamite for releasing one of the best heavy metal albums of this year. Opening with the title track, Addicted To Metal has twelve tracks of traditional heavy metal created to be played at arenas. Corny lyrics, anthemic choruses, classic heavy metal soloing and powerful high-pitched singing, Addicted To Metal is a lovable and infectious album that is filling my house with the sound of pure heavy metal.
Germany’s Kissin’ Dynamite have a style that makes you fall in love with the strongest form of music all over again. Addicted To Metal is a big fuck-you to whiners across the globe, it is what you want to be blasting when you visualize the flag of heavy metal flying high above everything else that dares stand before it. “Metal all alone brings the force we need to play”, sing Kissin’ Dynamite, and that is a bloody good lesson to slap the weak with.
Addicted To Metal is already in my list of the best heavy metal albums of 2010. Enough said.
