MALLET is without of doubt one of the most underrated and unknown melodic hard rock acts the ’80s / early ’90s German factory. Their fun, catchy music was in the same league of BONFIRE, KARO, HOTWIRE, ROKO, CORACKO. The band never stopped despite the genre lose some popularity performing and releasing albums to this day.
Now 2021 MALLET is celebrating their 40th anniversary and are releasing ”History No.1′‘, a 2xCD ‘best of’ including songs from all the band eras. You have 26 songs from their 12 records, all remastered and hand-picked by fans.
There are many rockers like ‘Everybody Needs Somebody’ or ‘Rock ’N’ Roll Hero’, slightly poppy AORish tunes such as ‘On My Way’, up to beautiful ballads like ‘Shine On’ or midtempo ‘Tomorrow’ (play videos below).
This release is a nice opportunity to discover MALLET, especially their early material now properly remastered.
