Fastway, Eat Dog Eat

If you know the rock unit Fastway, you will be happy to hear that their first studio since 1990 is out. If you don't you wont care I suppose. But beyond this fact, Fastway's Eat Dog Eat (MVD 5317A) has such a nicely solid hard-rock (as opposed to metal) immediacy that you might find yourself wondering about the last one if you hear this one a few times.

That is, if you dig the big guitar-bass-drum and traditional hard vocal sound. This one has it. Power chords, riffs, smacking drums, hard-rock song form.

It's what it is, of course. But that's a good thing. Fastway isn't trying to put one over on you. It's honest, real, itself. Rock isn't dead. This is an example why.
