Mistress started to perform live and made a name for themselves with their high-energetic and powered live performances in the local live scene. But after the great start, personal tragedy struck among one of the band's member. The band was unable to continue and Siggy started to search for a new line-up. The two new members were found and Mistress started again to perform live and thinking about their future. In 2013, the band released its debut album which was entitled "Loveteaser" and started to promote it.
After the first spin of "Loveteaser" I have to admit that Mistress achieved to catch my attention at once with its catchy, up-tempo and totally 80's hard rock sound. Yes, it's so good! In my humble opinion, there is an early Ratt vibe in all over the project and that's a thing that I like. The guitar work is simple and rockin' in such a good way, the vocal lines are very good and the musicianship is top notch. Even there is no filler in sight here, there are a couple of killer tracks here, that takes the whole album in to a higher level, such as "Turn It On", "Live It Up", "To The Top" and the Firehouse-esque opener tune of "Rock It Tonight".
Bottom line is that "Loveteaser" is a real solid album! It's trying to bring the glory Sunstrip days back and believe me it does it in a very good way. No modern thing here just pure, killer hard rock/hair metal stuff in an old fashion way that will bring memories from another, so sweet, era. Taste it!
