REVIEW : S.N.A.K.E – III (Label: Lions Pride Music, Rel. Date: 27 November 2023)

S.N.A.K.E. is a melodic hard rock band that is hailing from Spain. The band was originally formed by J.C. Moreno and Franco Troisi in 2008. 

In 2016, S.N.A.K.E emerged onto the music scene with their solid debut entitled "Rock Evolution". The album got a very strong feedback from both fans and critics. Two years later the band released its sophomore offering, "Only One Flag". The album's infectious hooks and anthemic choruses united fans under the banner of S.N.A.K.E's distinct sound.

Nowadays, the band is back in business with its brand new opus entitled "III"!!! The new record is going to be released through Lions Pride Music this November (27th). The band consists of Frankie Troisi on lead vocals, Dave Hyden on guitars, JC Moreno on drums, Paul Keys on keys and Stevie M. on bass guitars. The responsibility of the mixing/mastering is handled by Jona Tee who contributes also here with some backround vocals as well. 

The first highlight of the new album comes with the very 80's AOR hymn of "Midnight Girl"!!! Up-lifting, ultra-melodic and with an amazing super catchy chorus line in it this track took me by surprise! Excellent stuff! The straight-forward "Heartbeat" and the killer "Stranger In Paradise" are two more highlights out of this brilliant record. "Born To Rock" puts more power and muscle while "End Of The Road"is yet another punchier and probably the heavier song out of "III". 

An overall solid opus that includes some killer songs in it, choruses to sing-a-long, power and great melodies! Be sure to check S.N.A.K.E.'s brand new record on its release day!
