SMOKING SNAKES - Danger Zone (2024) *HQ* - full

SMOKING SNAKES, the electrifying hard rockers hailing from Gothenburg, Sweden, have officially inked a deal with Frontiers Music to unleash their highly anticipated debut album, “Danger Zone“.
Smoking Snakes are known for their high-energy performances and a sound that pays homage to the golden era of rock while infusing a contemporary edge.
In 2022, Smoking Snakes made a thunderous entrance onto the music scene, grabbing attention with the self-released EP ‘Restless & Wild’ that cranked up the volume to 11. Their distinctive blend of powerful old-school hard rock with a modern edge garnered acclaim, drawing inspiration from iconic artists such as W.A.S.P., Ratt, Dokken, Crazy Lixx, and KISS.
With a punchy blend of raw energy, infectious melodies, and a commitment to the essence of sleaze hard rock, Smoking Snakes are poised to make a significant impact on the global music scene with “Danger Zone”.

Led by Brett Martin on vocals/rhythm guitar, Andy Delarge on bass/backing vocals, Stan Ricci on drums/backing vocals, and Leo Razor lead guitar/backing vocals, the band possess a high energy that immediately grabs your attention.
This is done so through large guitar riffs, loud, powerful lead vocals from Martin, and impossible to ignore gang-vocals from the entire band.
Now, some may say – hasn’t this been done before? An fair question, reserve your cynical side, because while Smoking Snakes might be reliving Hard Rock / Heavy Metal’s past glories, the key is that they are doing it right.

Full of massive guitar riffs, a key standout here is Martin’s voice which is very much in your face. Shouting his lungs out, a good comparison to what Martin does here is more in the vein of W.A.S.P. ‘s Blackie Lawless, rather than say a Don Dokken or say a Vince Neil.
Giving Smoking Snakes an extra punch in the gut, each track here rocks hard; and this includes “Run For Your Life,” “Restless and Wild,” as well as the absolute killer “There Is No Tomorrow.”

In the end, if you are a fan of any of the bands discussed here, you will absolutely love what Smoking Snakes are all about.
They are genuine, shooting from the heart, and putting out some gritty hard rock that wears its influences like a freshly inked tattoo. An absolute fun listen, turn it up.
