REVIEW : LUCKY BASTARDZ / Always On The Run (2015)

Lucky Bastardz are an Italian hard rock band and in 2009 they released their debut album "Hated for who we are", produced by Swedish label Swedmetal. The band participated in many festivals as backing band for Hardcore Superstar, Pino Scotto, Crucified Barbara and Innocent Rosie.

Lucky Bastardz published their second album, "Bite Me, Dude", at the end of 2010. In subsequent years, the band will have the opportunity to perform alongside superstars such as Anthrax, Obituary, Deicide, Belphegor and important Italian bands such Strana Officina, Skanners, Extrema, Elvenking and Secret Sphere.

So, nowadays, these heavy rock bastardz are ready to unleash album number three which is entitled "Always On The Run".

After a short, but intense, intro comes the first highlight of the album; "Fuckinshow" and the party starts with this fast-paced and 'punchy' rocker. Next, the party continues with the heavier "Back On My Feet" and"Tiger Hostel" to come to the really power-ballad of "The Sign On The Wall" which is one of the best tracks here. "New Era" smells 80's hard rock scene from miles away and "The Powder" is yet another beautiful mid-tempo song. Check out, also, the track that closes the album, "Circle On The Shore", that features some vocal duties from Michele Luppi.

"Always On The Run" is a solid heavy rock album all the way. Lucky Bastardz are a band that has the whole 'package' and sure knows who to deliver a strong record. Highly recommended!
