BANGKOK – Madness (2021)

BANGKOK - Madness (2021) full

Madness” is the international debut album from South American melodic hard rockers BANGKOK, their first in English language. Formed in 2015, BANGKOK already released two albums and supported the likes of The Dead Daisies and Freedom Call gigs, and the time for major exposure arrived.
As seen on the very ’80s inspired cover artwork, BANGKOK’s music takes the era’s musical style for the genre, elaborated melodic hard rock with rock&pop touches. The band is also well known for their YouTube covers od classic songs, ranging from Mr.Big to Iron Maiden.

Songs titles like ‘Running Out Of Chances’, ‘Last Forever’, ‘Madness’, ‘No Turning Back’, ‘Tears’ give a hint of BANGKOK’s orientation both musically and lyrically, alternating rockers with midpaced melodic tunes and ballads. They find room for some cool radio-ready rock&pop choruses too.
While there’s a noticeable accent on some Pablo Vitantonio’s lead vocals, and the mix could be tighter, overall “Madness” is a strong timeless melodic hard rock album, another proof the genre is still alive n’ kickin’ all over the planet.
Two thumbs up!
