Dirty Rats: New album End of Tears out today

Happy Friday the 13th! What an awesome day, and to make the day even better we have great news: Dirty Rats‘ second album End in Tears is out now! Get it here https://www.dirtyratsband.com/store.

The album has already received some fantastic reviews:

“All in all then, this is quality heavy rock that makes you sit up and listen to both the words and the music…no room for ballads here, so if you want high octane music with a large dollop of fun, this is certainly worth a listen.” RAMzine

“Let the good times roll. Dirty Rats know how to rock and they know how to roll. Delivering catchy beer-soaked rock tunes; The Juice, Axis of Love and Love From A Distance get the party started with plenty of Aussie energy.” GBHBL

“Dirty Rats have captured something in this album that takes you on a wild journey that has taken decades to achieve in the industry.” Metal-Roos

Dirty Rats are a no-bullshit Aussie pub rock band, playing beer barns and inner-city clubs throughout Melbourne and country Victoria. Over the last 30 years, the band have developed a sound that is typically Australian hard rock, think AC/DC, Rose Tattoo. But listen, and hear influences from MC5, Motorhead and even some punk rock. They have developed a loyal fan-base both here and overseas based on their critically acclaimed first album, Rock n Roll, and high energy shows for bugger all money, precious little industry recognition, but purely for the enjoyment of playing loud “balls to the wall” rock. After numerous line-up changes which saw some excellent players and some complete nut jobs pass through the band’s ranks, Dirty Rats are now a lean, mean and explosive 4 piece band pumping out some of the best new guitar driven rock, with a uniquely 80’s flavour, that you will hear today.

K.A.Z: Swedish Metallers Release New Album Fighting for Life

Swedish female-fronted metallers K.A.Z self-released their first full-length album Fighting for Life on 19 August. The album is a follow up from K.A.Z‘s 2017 EP with the same title, Fighting for Life.

The band says about Fighting For Life that it is about every person’s everyday struggle. “How people cannot see into the mind of others and feel how they are fighting for life… what a person decides to show in public is easy to read but what actually is beneath the surface inside the mind can only the person feel”, state K.A.Z.

K.A.Z were formed in Lidköping, Sweden, back in 2013. The name stems from an old Swedish TV-series for children named “Kent Agent”. The band name became ”Kent Agents sällskap” (sällskap means company and is a parody on the TV series). The name “Kent Agent Sällskap” was just a inside joke between the members that later was changed to the serious name “K.A.Z” The band has played Sweden extensively and are now proud to present their first studio album, Fighting for Life.
