XX BADBOY - Fire In The Hole [remastered reissue +2 0dayrox extras] full

Glam Metal Sleazy rockers XX BADBOY arrived too late into the US scene – early ’90s – and while they managed to self-release their album ‘Fire In The Hole’ – on a homemade CDr – in 1993, the group disbanded soon after. There’s a version appeared in 1995, but it’s a bootleg of limited copies.
Fast forward this current century, Demon Doll Records finally properly released “Fire In The Hole” with a remastering treatment. However, there were two additional tracks on that 1993 CDr, added as ‘0dayrox extras‘ here.
Musically, XX BADBOY were everything a true Hair Metal fan could ask for, some kind of KIX meets BRITNY FOX meets heavier CINDERELLA. “Fire In The Hole” is plenty of energetic rockin’ songs with a classic raspy-sleazy vocals and sharp, edgy riffs n’ solos.

It’s astonishing how major labels missed these guys, certainly not for lack of quality but industry change of direction in favor to depressive grunge. Not only can they fire off a rocker with the best of them (and I do mean the best of them) they also nail commercial ballads to the core.
“Feel This Way” is one of catchiest songs on the record. Add to that the amazing song craftsmanship of “Shoot Ya Full O Love”, “All You Want Is Money” and “Little Loose Lucy” and again you scratch your head how this album wasn’t properly released before.
A Highly Recommended piece of classic ’80s-style US hair glam metal.
