LICENCE - Never 2 Old 2 Rock (2019) full

Never 2 Old 2 Rock” is the title of the new album by LICENCE, which releases on August 08, 2019. Forming back in 2014 and based out of Ludwigsburg, Germany, Licence creator Steam Thiess is somewhat of a local guitar hero. Alongside him is daughter Jacky as vocalist, bassist Pappe, and drummer Sammy Sin rounding out the quartet. Again mixed and mastered by Achim Köhler, known for his work with Primal Fear, Brainstorm and many others, this sophomore album was recorded and produced in the band’s own Steamrock Studio.

The disc leads out with “Line of Fire”. And it’s a blast of high energy. Think like drinking a Red Bull can in one shot; it’s a tune full of adrenaline and ’80s riffs. At thirteen tracks in length, there’s no shortage of rocking contained here.
Tracks like “Hell Freeze Over” awaken the senses with infectious lead in riffing. “Turn Around” simply opens with a thunder and never lets up. A little bluesy swagger creeps in on “N.2O.2.R” before the riffs explode once again.

The band’s cover of the Pat Benatar classic “Hit Me with Your Best Shot” heavies up the original nicely. And there’s so much more still…
Jacky still has that “been up all night before recording, drinking whiskey and devouring packs of smokes by the truckload” vocal quality that flows perfectly over Theiss‘ guitar work.
This band rocks hard with melody, with a persistent ’80s smell all over, from arrangements to production
Great stuff all around with a strong ’80s vibe. Highly Recommended
