Bullet Boys

The debut of this L.A based quartet screamed it’s way, “smooth up in” to the void left by the break up of Van Halen. Vocalist Marq Torien, though vocally different from Diamond Dave, with a higher pitch and a raspier texture, had mastered Roth’s soulful delivery and over the top showmanship. Combined with their up-tempo party style songs, the cymbal crashing style of skin basher, Jimmy D’Anda, the booming base of Lonnie Vencent and the groove infested licks of guitarist Mick Sweda, you have one hell of a cd. From beginning to end it pounds it’s way through anthem after anthem and is sure to be a classic.
