PSYCHO VIRGENTEEN - A PRACTICAL LESSON IN ETIQUETTE
Metal To Infinity
it’s Monday morning late December 2009 at the moment – I'm feeling good…
not because of the fact Holiday season is nearby (I don’t like this period at
all) but due to the fact I listened to a six song EP released by a Belgian band
called Psycho Virginteen! Consisting out of five members who played before in
other groups delivering styles of music ranges from extreme Metal to Rock! I
know, there is quite a huge distance in between these styles but I can assure
you all by now – PVT found the right solution to let it all fit in a very
pleasant and surely hard hitting, rocking way!
of the disc they’ve sent last week is “A Practical Lesson In Etiquette”,
according the information on the flipside of the front cover, there should be
only three songs audible but… dropping the CD into the layer of my player, the
index gives on there are six songs to enjoy. No problem to me – let’s find
out what these guys has to offer.
clear is that the production is from a high calibre. Heavy sound in a perfect
way – man in charge for this was Do from Southern Voodoo (great job bro!).
Based on the music, well these guys show how to Rock for sure. Right on, fist in
the air Hard Rock music, spiced with a little bit of Southern and definitely
Glam Rock touch. To me, a sound that can be compared with many greats used to
know from the American scene like LA Guns, Skid Row, Flexx Bronco, American Dog,
Guns N Roses, Broken Teeth.
don’t have much bands here in Belgium who play their stuff like PVT – as far
as I know, I can only bring on band names like Monster Joe and Southern Voodooo.
Make notice of the fact I'm not following this type of music as close as I do
for Heavy metal music so…
three songs on Psycho Virginteen’s EP as there are ‘Backdoor Baby’,
‘Gunshot’ and ‘Travellin’ Man’ to bring on the Hard Rock and Glam
spirit full speed ahead, loud as can be and most important… in a very
professional way. Real good singer who’s taking care of his vocal notes
perfectly to me. I hear a guy with a stable, still clear and dirty – kinda
boozy manner of singing and yes… that is what anti fashion, just dirty Rock is
is another set of 3 works added to the tracklist, unfortunately the titles are
not mentioned on the cover but in fact, that’s is not the main point you know.
These songs are just real good, played by a bunch of well skilled musicians able
to keep up the spirit of good old Hard Rock / Glam Metal way up high!
Practical Lesson In Etiguette” ain’t the most interesting product for all
mainstream, so called modern Rock / Metal music. If you don’t like your stuff
old fashioned, American styled… better take a hike and try something else.
Psycho Virginteen tried out something real different than used to do before and
according to me – they absolutely succeed on all area. Hard Rock barrooms
playing stuff from PVT, well I'm sure there will be a dirty rock feast going on.
Cheers to all those hanging at the bar like true brothers and sisters and hope
to see the band live on stage bringing down the roof! Watch out for their
